LG & Qualcomm Announce New Smart TV Platform

By David Richards | Thursday | 05/12/2013

As Australian free to air TV networks get set to take on Foxtel in a bruising content war TV manufacturers are fighting a battle as to who will have the smartest TVs next year.

Last night LG announced ahead of the CES Show that their 2014 Smart TV's will incorporate a new AllJoyn open source software framework that will significantly improve interoperability between devices.

The AllJoyn, was developed by Qualcomm who is set to reveal a new 64 bit quad core processor at CES that allows smartphones and tablets to easily connect with a TV with content managed on a tablet or smartphone.

The new AllJoyn technology which is set to be picked up by other TV manufacturers is designed "to create a common language that seamlessly connects the Internet and access to content regardless of brand or operating system (OS)," the company said.

The technology will enable seamless multi-device interoperation and content sharing with next-generation LG Smart TVs.

"LG is at the forefront of the device connectivity revolution," stated Richard Choi, LG Electronics smart business centre senior VP. "LG will now enable consumers to more effortlessly connect their networked devices in the home and continues to show a strong commitment to the next generation of convergence technology."

The software framework enables devices and apps to freely communicate with one another without barriers imposed by incompatible operating systems and products.

In addition to simplifying use for Smart TV owners, the technology provides additional opportunities for app developers, the company said.

As an example, LG said the using AllJoyn several smartphones or tablets, each running a completely different OS, can now participate in the same multiplayer game on an LG Smart TV.

In Mini Motor Racing, one person could steer his or her car around the track using the LG Magic Remote while the other players control their vehicles via the LG Gamepad app for mobile devices.

LG said it will continue to develop new features and functions that leverage the new inter-device communication.

"LG sees great potential and huge possibilities in connecting multiple display products with one TV," added Choi. "Facilitating true smart home convergence, LG Smart TVs will now be able to seamlessly connect to devices regardless of brand or OS, a first-of-its-kind milestone in the home entertainment industry."

LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
