LG reveal integrated Google TV heading to CES 2012
LG have today revealed that they will be introducing a new integrated Google TV at CES 2012. The LG Smart TV wil combine Google’s Android operating system and LG’s own Smart TV technologies, and will be powered by ARM-based chipsets for reduced power consumption.
“LG has constantly strived to provide consumers with wider choices in home entertainment that bring the highest level of sophistication and convenience,” said Havis Kwon, President and CEO of LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company
The LG Google TV will come equipped with LG’s “Magic Remote Qwerty”, an extension of its existing voice-controlled magic remote function combined with a Qwerty keyboard, and operated through the Google Tv on-screen interface.
LG’s integrated TV will also be equipped with a built-in 2d to 3D conversion engine, LG’s own CINEMA 3D technology which allows any standard 2D content to be viewed in 3D.
The Google TV will also include LG smart TV functionality based on NetCast, even though it mirrors many of Google TV’s functionality.
“Alongside Google TV, LG will continue to advance its own Smart TV platform based on NetCast, which will be available in more than 60 percent of LG’s flat panel TVs scheduled for introduction over the coming year, stated LG
“With a growing collection of content and services, LG’s Smart TV platform will continue to provide consumers with a unique user experience.”
This is all pretty promising stuff, but what sizes will be available? Well LG had to keep some details under their hats for CES didn’t they!
