Tampa, Fla. and Charlotte, N.C. – LG Electronics is the official digital display and electronics provider for both the 2012 Republican and Democratic National Conventions, the company revealed Friday.
LG recently provided the GOP convention with more than 900 displays, including LED HDTVs, smart TVs and Cinema 3D models.
It then provided hundreds of LG displays, including LED HDTVs, Smart TVs, and Cinema3D models for the the Demractic Convention in Charlotte, running Sept. 4-6.
Under its agreement with the Republican National Convention’s Committee on Arrangements, LG supplied displays for the main convention venue, the Tampa Bay Times Forum, and the Tampa Convention Center, which served as workspace to support the estimated 15,000 media personnel in Tampa providing worldwide news coverage.
Supplied models included seven screen sizes from 26 to 65 inches.
Under its agreement with the Committee for Charlotte 2012 and the 2012 Democratic National Convention Committee, LG supplied more than 350 displays for the three main convention venues: the Time Warner Cable Arena (site of keynote speeches and delegate votes), Charlotte Convention Center (where caucuses and media events are held) and Bank of America Stadium (where President Obama will officially kick-off his re-election campaign before tens of thousands of attendees Thursday night).
Displays were provided in five screen sizes from 32- to 55-inches to help keep delegates, journalists, and other convention participants informed of convention activities and other news during the events.
“The 2012 convention is our most advanced technologically ever,” said Andrew Binns, DNC Convention chief information officer. “As part of our mission to hold the most open and accessible convention in history, we will connect more delegates, officials, convention guests, and media than ever before in a dynamic way. LG’s cutting-edge display technologies play a key role in delivering timely, compelling high-def convention content to attendees.”
