ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Dec. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --LG Electronics (LG)
today announced an all-new Magic Remote for its CINEMA 3D Smart TV lineup in
advance of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. The redesigned
device adopts enhanced speech recognition capabilities that make executing
commands simple, natural, interactive and conversational. The new design will
continue to employ four control options – voice, gesture, point and wheel.

"LG is committed to providing innovative home entertainment solutions and the
Magic Remote is a key pillar of the CINEMA 3D Smart TV user experience," said
Havis Kwon, President and CEO of the LG Electronics Home Entertainment
Company. "Building on an already impressive feature set, the latest version
boasts more accurate speech recognition and its gesture, wheel and point
control options makes the Magic Remote stand out as a truly intuitive device."

The LG Magic Remote's sophisticated voice control technology makes issuing a
verbal command to the TV both simple and effective. New Natural Language
Recognition software allows the user to talk in a more conversational manner.

As the heart of the home theater experience, the new LG Magic Remote serves as
a universal control solution, maximizing convenience for the user with its
ability to access and control an array of home entertainment equipment.
Devices ranging from Smart TVs, set-top boxes, sound bars and Blu-ray players
can be effectively managed with just one Magic Remote in the living room. With
the point feature, the LG Magic Remote becomes an extension of the human body,
making it an ideal motion-based video game controller. The wheel control is
perfect for scrolling up and down web pages or zooming in and out when using
applications. By making specific gestures with the remote, users can quickly
access oft-used menus or perform frequently needed functions, saving valuable
time. For example, a viewer can switch to a favorite TV channel just by
writing the number in the air.

The Magic Remote comes in two highly functional models -- one ships with LG's
premium CINEMA 3D Smart TVs and the other with the company's standard CINEMA
3D Smart TV models. The premium Magic Remote features LED back-lit buttons for
easy operation in the dark and also sports a more compact design, making it
easier and more comfortable to hold. Commonly used buttons have been
thoughtfully repositioned, resulting in an even more natural and enjoyable
user experience.
