The Pro:Centric software provides features for cruise ship environments, including support for 39 languages, one-click service tools, webOS 4.5 smart TV features, remote system management and easy-to-use templates and pages for custom on-screen interfaces to provide guest information and services.

The TV line also allows wireless streaming of music and video content from passengers’ mobile devices and laptops through Smart Share, Screen Share and Bluetooth Sound Sync technologies.

The 32-inch class and 28-inch class Pro:Centric smart TVs feature compatibility with standard 200x200 and 100x100 VESA wall mounts, respectively, and both have dual 5W stereo speakers.

The 24-inch class Pro:Centric is compatible with a standard 75x75 VESA wall mount and also has dual 5W stereo speakers along with a standard desktop mount.
