CALGARY, Alberta and SAN RAMON, Calif., June 12, 2019

Userful Corporation, a leading provider of AV-over-IP solutions for enhanced video communication, has been awarded a 2019 Commercial Integrator BEST Awards for its breakthrough Userful Cloud and uClient App with LG webOS Signage.

The BEST Award winners are chosen by a panel of industry experts, integrators and the editors of Commercial Integrator. The awards recognize outstanding new products, solutions, and services that can affect commercial integrators’ businesses. Criteria for winning products include innovation, functionality, competitive advantages and benefits to the installer.

The uClient app runs on the LG webOS Signage platform, turning smart commercial displays from LG Electronics into flexible and scalable visual displays that can be centrally managed with no additional hardware required. Regarded as a disruptor of the digital signage industry, the uClient app is the first solution to support video wall management in its many forms and eliminates hardware-based thin clients, media players, cables, extenders and other hardware typically required to display content on screens throughout an organization.

“Digital signage and video walls, delivered over an AV-over-IP infrastructure, improves a business’ operational process automation, productivity, customer engagement and internal communication,” said John Marshall, CEO of Userful. “The support of uClient on smart displays such as LG’s provide businesses a cost-effective, high ROI method to reduce the amount of hardware required, and also reduces TCO.”

The uClient app connects the Userful Visual Networking Platform with the family of LG Smart Displays, and includes a wide range of advanced features, such as zones, scheduling, cloud storage space, display synching for video walls, and more.

”The integration of Userful’s uClient and LG’s webOS Signage platform provides a compelling solution for video communications across the enterprise, bringing unparalleled flexibility and effectiveness by eliminating unnecessary hardware and delivering content directly from the cloud,” says Clark Brown, vice president, digital signage, LG Business Solutions. “The Commercial Integrator BEST Award recognizes how our partners like Userful are innovating with solutions that have a significant impact on various markets across the country.”
