December 24, 2012
LG Electronics (LG) is to introduce an extended Google TV line-up at the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. LG’s new models GA7900 and GA6400 aim to deliver an outstandingly intuitive user experience at various sizes and new design to meet more consumers’ expectations.
According to the consumer electronics giant, Google’s latest platform and LG’s redesigned Magic Remote Qwerty work together to enhance the effectiveness of Voice Search and the PrimeTime quick guide. The updated Smart Home also adds to the user experience by offering convenient, streamlined access to VoD, YouTube and more apps.
“LG is committed to providing diverse home entertainment options that offer the most satisfying user experience and the latest LG Smart TVs with Google TV do just that,” said Havis Kwon, President and CEO of the LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company. “They deliver a stellar user experience by merging the latest Google TV platform with LG’s proven Smart TV technology. The result is a comprehensive system that is ground-breaking in its simplicity.”
LG Google TV aims to redefine the user experience. According to LG, the platform offers the ease of use that recalls the simplicity of earlier television sets. The new Smart Home offers varied types of ‘cards’ that act as folders for apps and other content.
The entire user interface can be navigated using the redesigned Magic Remote Qwerty, which combines a complete keyboard with the convenient benefits of the Magic Remote’s point-and-click control. LG says the enhanced natural language recognition incorporated in the revamped remote is a perfect match with Google’s outstanding search functionality, with the overall voice-based capabilities multiplying the effectiveness of the PrimeTime quick guide to enhance the user experience and simplify browsing through the more than 100,000 available movies and TV episodes on LG Google TV.
LG Smart TV’s dual core CPU enables easy menu navigation, fast Internet browsing and video streaming. The additional processor power allows the TruPicture XD Engine to process images quickly and precisely, resulting in richer colors, deeper contrast and greater overall picture clarity.
The LG Smart TV with Google TV offers connectivity options and can connect to a variety of devices wirelessly. With the latest YouTube app update for Android, smartphones and tablets can be automatically paired with Google TV over the same home network via Wi-Fi, making it easy to send videos from device to TV.
