ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Dec. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Building on the success
of its Smart TVs with Google TV, LG Electronics (LG) is expanding its 2013
Google TV lineup to seven models in five screen sizes for 2013 – including
premium models featuring LG's popular CINEMA SCREEN design, the company
The extended LG Google TV lineup, which will be officially introduced at next
month's 2013 International CES® in Las Vegas, encompasses two model series
(GA7900 and GA6400) designed to deliver an outstandingly intuitive user
experience, various sizes and new design to better meet consumers'
Google's latest platform and LG's redesigned Magic Qwerty Remote work together
to enhance the effectiveness of Voice Search and the PrimeTime quick guide.
The updated Home Dashboard also adds to the user experience by offering
convenient, streamlined access to premium video on-demand, such as HBO GO,
content from YouTube and more apps*. Discovering exciting new content from the
rich pool of choices available on LG Google TV has never been easier.
Additionally, the premium models will incorporate LG's advanced CINEMA SCREEN
design for an undeniably sleek and modern finish.
"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 groundbreaking in its simplicity."
LG Google TV aims to redefine the user experience. The new Home Dashboard
offers varied types of "cards" that act as folders to display apps and other
content. The new "My Interest" Card can even display useful information
including real-time weather and customizable news.
The entire user interface can be navigated using the redesigned Magic Qwerty
Remote, which combines a complete keyboard with the convenient benefits of the
Magic Remote's point-and-click control. The enhanced natural language
recognition incorporated in the revamped remote is a perfect match with
Google's outstanding search functionality so that broadcast TV or Internet
content can be found with only one vocal command. Consumers can use search
terms like "romantic comedy" to get results. Consumers can also tell it to
switch to a specific channel number, station or website with one voice
command, eliminating extra scrolling and controller clicking. The overall
voice-based capabilities multiply the effectiveness of the PrimeTime quick
guide to provide an ultimate user experience and make browsing through the
more than 100,000 available movies and TV episodes on LG Google TV a breeze.
The LG Smart TV with Google TV offers superb connectivity options and can
connect to a variety of devices wirelessly. The latest YouTube app update for
Android, smart phones and tablets can be automatically paired with Google TV
over the same home network via Wi-Fi, making it easy to send videos from your
device to your TV with just the touch of one button. Gamers will be pleased
to know that LG Google TV will offer the OnLive® app pre-installed, which
transforms the TV into an incredible gaming platform without the need for a
separate console. The app makes hundreds of high quality video games available
instantly from the cloud.
The embedded 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 more quickly and precisely, resulting
in richer colors, deeper contrast and greater overall picture clarity. Also
offering CINEMA 3D TV functionality, the LG Google TV employs FPR technology
to give movie buffs and gamers a great 3D effect.
The GA6400 series will be available in 42-, 47-, 50-, 55- and 60-inch class
screen sizes (42.0-, 47.0-, 50.0-, 55.6- and 59.8-inch diagonals,
respectively). LG applied its CINEMA SCREEN design to its 2013 premium GA7900
series (47- and 55-inch class screen sizes) to offer a sleek, modern look for
discerning consumers who want the Google experience, but don't want to
sacrifice on aesthetics. This design further minimizes width of the bezel,
giving the TV a streamlined appearance while creating the impression of a
borderless display. Along with the LG Google TV's unique stand design, it
integrates perfectly with interior design of a living room.
