Userful Corporation, a provider of AV-over-IP solutions for enhanced video communication since 2015, announces newly expanded capabilities of its Visual Networking Platform architecture.
This includes enhancing the uClient app to support on-premise deployments by connecting webOS smart digital signage displays from LG Electronics to an onsite server for more demanding display applications. With this announcement, an onsite PC or server loaded with Userful On-Premise software can now connect over the network directly to smart displays deployed with the uClient app with no additional hardware required and in real-time.
Advanced layout management
Userful On-Premise with uClient is the first platform to stream live or interactive content directly to smart displays in real-time, on any display. Userful On-Premise enables organizations to optimize interactivity through advanced layout management, such as picture-in-picture, multi-window, and command and control, making it the ideal solution when operating demanding real-time content.

Until recently, video walls and other advanced display applications have relied on media players, thin clients, cables, extenders, and other hardware. Earlier this year Userful changed that with Userful Cloud, a hardware-free video wall that uses Userful’s uClient app to connect to LG webOS Signage displays. Userful has extended its product and innovation leadership and executed its vision of replacing hardware with more reliable, stronger performing, and less expensive software-based solutions.
Providing a compelling solution
“The integration of Userful’s On-Premise and LG’s webOS Signage platforms provides a compelling solution for video communications across the enterprise, bringing a new level of flexibility and effectiveness by eliminating unnecessary hardware,” says Clark Brown, Vice President, Digital Signage, LG Business Solutions.
“Organizations need the power of Userful On-Premise when managing advanced video communications that require interactivity or a large number of sources,” said John Marshall, Userful’s Chief Executive Officer. “The support of uClient on smart displays such as LG’s for Userful On-Premise makes those deployments more cost-effective by eliminating additional hardware, and also streamlines support and maintenance. By continuing to reduce the amount of hardware required, Userful continues to reduce TCO.”
