IntuiLab’s has added support for LG’s webOS signage operating system to its IntuiFace no-coding interactive experience creation platform in a move the companies say makes interactive digital signage creation accessible for businesses of any size.
IntuiLab says the deal creates the first multitouch-capable signage creation option for webOS, opening the doors for businesses to realise the added benefits of interactive signage, over passive signage.
The company estimates that projects built on IntuiFace and webOS platforms will reduce total cost of ownership by 65% and time to deployment by 50% over conventional display and content delivery approaches.
Vincent Encontre, IntuiLab chief executive, says devices running webOS have a price point and ease of use that make interactive signage deployments – which he dubs ‘the natural evolution of passive signage’ – an ‘excellent’ choice for businesses of any size.
Encontre says the partnership with LG means interactive signage creation is now accessible as well.
“We believe consumers will be amazed at what can be achieved, triggering a significant increase in touch-based webOS projects,” he adds.
The IntuiFace platform is designed with touch capabilities at its core, enabling companies to create highly interactive HTML5-based signage, without coding, which can be deployed onto PCs, tablets, kiosks and – with the LG deal – webOS based signage devices.
A wide range of media formats can be incorporated, along with live connections to cloud-based data and APIs, including social networks and the internet of things, with data collection, scheduling and the ability to work offline and other core capabilities for signage and kiosk deployments, also incorporated.
Warren Lewis, Western and Southern Europe regional sales director, information display, LG Electronics Europe B2B, says the company is excited to offer customers ‘true touch capability with the availability of IntuiFace on webOS’.
“For organisations in search of an affordable, accessible path to creating touch-enabled digital signage content – even organisations with no development skills – IntuiFace and LG offer a uniquely compelling, turnkey package,” Lewis says.
