The next evolution in art displays continues as LG Electronics (LG) announce they have entered a partnership with Blackdove. Integrating software from Blackdove’s curated, digital art platform with LG’s digital signage solutions, the partnership will offer integrators a convenient way to showcase digital art on high-end and commercial projects, according to LG.
The company further notes that their vibrant digital displays offer a fantastic medium for displaying art installations. The LED signage offers exceptional flexibility with simple-to-install, modular, scalable designs and premium picture quality with resolutions from Full HD (1,920 x 1,080) to 8K (7,680 x 4,320).
“LG is delighted to partner with Blackdove as this partnership allows us to engage our LED signage customers with a benefit that is unique to LG,” said Paik Ki-mun, senior vice president and head of the Information Display business unit of LG Business Solutions Company.
“The option to transform LG LED signage into digital canvases in spaces such as luxury residentials, corporate lobbies, hospitals and retail stores is something we think the public will have a very positive reaction to.”
LG & Blackdove Broaden the Realms of Digital Art Installations
Starting this quarter, Blackdove’s curation software will be able to be bundled with LG LED signage products, which include LG MAGNIT, LG LED Bloc, LED All-in-ONE and fine-pitch LED signage.
The library of art assets has been hand-picked by Blackdove’s curatorial team and feature artworks by contemporary artists Jonathan McCabe, Kenneth Wayne, Meghan Cheng, Franck Lefebvre and Jamie Scott to name a handful. Overall, the library offers a broad range of subjects and styles for both new and experienced fans of digital art.
The prospect of digital art in wellness applications is one that continues to be explored alongside its traditional counterpart, with its versatility and multimedia possibilities being incredibly salient aspects of the medium. Additionally, technology’s growing influence in the built environment alongside growing preferences for design-forward solutions have only increased interest in this evolving category
Having made its debut at CEDIA Expo five years ago, Blackdove has also seen consistent success amongst integrators as it continues to expand the range and affordability of its offerings. LG meanwhile has continued to increase its range of design-oriented displays for its clientele.
“We are gratified to have been selected by such an extraordinary partner as LG,” said Marc Billings, CEO of Blackdove. “Digital art is the first form of art in history that can be experienced natively by the whole world in an instant, giving it universal appeal. This makes possible an exponential increase in both the amount and diversity of art, as well as a path to universal access to affordable art enjoyment and ownership.”
