LG Electronics Launches Security Products Business in United States
Expanding its global security business to the U.S. market, LG Electronics today launched a new line of high-performance cameras and digital video recorders (DVRs) designed for fully integrated security solutions. LG’s new family of competitively-priced security cameras includes indoor/outdoor, residential and commercial offerings, engineered to deliver exceptional high-resolution video in a range of lighting conditions.
“With LG’s new analog and IP cameras and DVRs, we’re bringing the innovation and expertise LG is recognized for globally to the U.S. security industry,” said Y.K. Cho, B2B Senior Vice President of LG Electronics USA. “LG is well-known for introducing advanced products that cater to the needs of its customers, and that’s exactly what we’re bringing to the security industry by creating an installation-friendly camera line with outstanding image quality that even a small business owner can afford.”
A Step Ahead
During the first phase of the roll-out, LG Electronics USA is introducing 14 security products that include both IP and analog cameras, and a line of full-featured embedded hybrid DVRs, with plans to add many more products in the coming months. All 14 products are available now through Observint Technologies, a surveillance industry leader, which also plans to help LG build a broad network of strategic distribution allies.
LG’s new line of high-performance IP cameras will feature the company’s proprietary XDI imaging technology, which is designed to optimize performance and interoperability with LG products and components and to deliver excellent image resolution. One highlight of the new product line is the LG Wireless HD Network IP Cube Camera (model LW130W), a turn-key solution for high-quality, day/night indoor surveillance. The LG LW130W features 720p resolution at up to 30 frames-per-second, delivering high-definition video. The LG cube camera also offers a free and simple Android or iPhone application for remote viewing and monitoring from anywhere with smartphone connectivity.
Other new LG security cameras for the U.S. market include 1.3 and 3.0 megapixel IP box cameras, weather- and vandal-resistant dome cameras with 650 lines of resolution, 160-foot-range IR (infrared) bullet cameras, and more. Full-featured, high-performance 8- and 16-channel embedded hybrid digital video recorders (DVRs), available in standard- and high-resolution recording modes, are Android and iPhone compatible.
LG’s IP security cameras are both ONVIF- (Open Network Video Interface Forum) and PSIA- (Physical Security Interoperability Alliance) compliant, and have been tested and certified for interoperability.
“We have worked closely with LG’s engineering and product management teams to introduce this powerful new line of security products to the U.S. market,” said George Farley, Observint Technologies’ Chief Marketing Officer. “LG has designed simple-to-operate, cost-effective, reliable solutions that deliver exceptional results across a broad range of surveillance applications and lighting conditions. The image quality is outstanding. Clearly, LG is demonstrating its commitment to technology leadership in the U.S. surveillance industry.”
