LG To Debut NFC Enabled Smart TVs at CES 2013
LG on Monday debuted its new line of NFC enabled Smart TVs which will make their first public appearance at CES 2013 in Las Vegas.
The 2013 LG Cinema 3D lineup will likely debut during LG’s press conference on January 7 or during the first day of the show on January 8 (The Inquisitr will be reporting from the show). In the meantime the company is already proudly showing off the new TV lineups bezel-free design for top-of-the-range models.
Perhaps one of the biggest new features will be the inclusion of NFC compatibility for the South Korean companies line-up of plasma and LED TVs. LG has implemented “Tag On” technology that can pair the TVs with capable smartphones, allowing for the automatic streaming on content with very little setup.
LG will also pair the new Smart TVs with its redesign Magic Remote in order to offer point-sensing and voice-controlled features. The control offers WiDi and Miracast connectivity and they are fully supported by the LG Cloud.
As Smart TVs continue to evolve so to do their components. This time around the new CPU found inside the LG Smart TVs is 120 percent faster, while its graphics processor is 300 percent faster.
LG is also expected to showcase a rebuilt user interface for its Smart Home app, along wtih new content and gaming options to be announced as CES 2013.
According to Havis Kwon, president and CEO of the LG Home Entertainment Company:
“LG always strives to provide the most engaging, most convenient user experience to consumers all over the globe,” said Havis Kwon, president and CEO of the LG Home Entertainment Company.
We have been singularly uncompromising, both in developing and improving the LG Smart TV platform. As a result, we are confident the user experience of our 2013 models will shatter all expectations and demonstrate that LG has moved the medium of Smart TV forward.”
