SEOUL, Korea – February 14, 2016 – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., today announced that it has won the prestigious 2016 “AV Display Innovation of the Year” award from AV News for its OHD Series SMART Signage, an all-inclusive outdoor display solution for brilliant business messaging, and overall excellence in the integrated audio/visual (AV) arena. The winners of major annual awards including Samsung were recognized at a ceremony during the Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2016 conference held on February 9.

“With state-of-the-art technological development and close collaboration, Samsung enables our partners to create customized, immersive and interactive experiences for their own audiences – even in potentially challenging outdoor environments,” said Seog-gi Kim, Senior Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “We are thrilled to be recognized by leading industry influencers and the media for our commitment to deliver impactful outdoor visual displays, and we look forward to building new, innovative AV technologies that will further enhance the customer experience.”

Featuring a flexible and customizable design as well as embedded tools to foster efficient content management, Samsung’s OHD Series outdoor displays make it easier for businesses to deliver critical, real-time messaging to widespread audiences. The displays’ reinforced composition and internal heating and cooling controls ensure uninterrupted performance even when exposed to extreme weather or temperature conditions ranging from -30 ℃ to 50 ℃, further driving continuous stress-free operations for users.

OHD Series has also been adopted in the Samsung Safety Truck, a technology for trucks that seeks to prevent road accidents. It has also been selected as one of the ‘25 best inventions of 2015’ by TIME Magazine.
