Leveraging its leadership in smart home and hotel TV technologies, LG is empowering hoteliers with futuristic display technology designed to promote in-room connectivity, making guests' and AV managers' lives easier, according toMichael Kosla, hospitality vice president, LG ElectronicsUSABusiness Solutions.

"Smart technologies are being adopted in the home at a meteoric pace, and when you analyze the trend line in the lodging industry you see that consumers are beginning to demand those same smart conveniences when they're traveling and staying at their favorite hotels," said Kosla. "LG has long been an innovator in the hospitality industry and is an emerging leader in smart home technologies. Now, we're introducing new technologies set to transform the guest experience and to provide our customers a host of options that will both elevate their guests' stay and improve their technological infrastructure at the same time."

Bringing AI and Voice Recognition to the Hotel Room
Consistent with its "open platform, open partnership, open connectivity" philosophy, LG has introduced a new hotel TV smart ecosystem that enables end users to work with a range of leading external partners, including compatibility with Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant.

With increased compatibility, LG hotel TVs can now provide a convenient and connected in-room experience that fits the needs of each guest's individual lifestyle and preference. For example, LG's voice assistant compatibility can allow guests to control other smart devices in the room, including lights, drapes or door locks.

Building on LG's Smart TV Platform for Greater In-Room Automation
