LG and Intel partner on wireless Smart TV
December 20, 2011
LG Electronics has joined forces with Intel to promote Intel’s sophisticated Wireless Displays technology in its products.
According to the companies, 2012 could be the year Intel’s Wireless Display technology, more commonly referred to as WiDi, becomes blended with LG’s forthcoming LG Cinema 3D Smart TVs.
Intel’s WiDi is a new-generation wireless ‘technolog’ that allows users instant access to content stored in notebooks and other external mobile devices through projectors, monitors and large screen TVs. Unlike the traditional wired connectivity standards including USB and HDMI, Intel’s WiDi technology does not need an active WiFi or Internet connection to connect to the external display device.
“Through this strategic alliance, CINEMA 3D Smart TV users will be able to access a wider variety of content in a more convenient manner,” said Seog-ho Ro, Senior Vice President of LG Home Entertainment Company’s TV Business Unit in a statement, as reported by LG Newsroom. “Intel WiDi will be one of several features that will enhance the user convenience of our CINEMA 3D Smart TVs, further differentiating our products from the competition.”
