LG's Commitment to Custom Installers
While bringing innovative, category-leading home entertainment display solutions to the custom installation (CI) market, LG also reaffirmed its commitment to supporting custom installers by adding a special section to its "Reach LG" training portal developed exclusively for CI professionals. The Reach LG portal is a one-stop-shop which provides quick and easy access to a range of CI valuable resources such as CAD drawings, spec sheets, user manuals and training modules.
"LG places a very high value on our friends in the custom installation industry," said Rick Calacci, LG Electronics USA's senior vice president of home entertainment sales.

For example, Calacci said LG collaborated with Savant, a recognized leader in home control and automation, to develop network drivers for 2018 LG OLED and LG SUPER UHD TVs. LG Profiles will be available on Savant's 8.9 system release expected later this month. Savant is the latest in the growing list of custom installation leaders that LG has partnered with, including Crestron, Control 4, Elan, URC and Logitech, ensuring compatibility and making the integration of LG TVs a smooth and simple process.
