LG Electronics is expanding its 2013 Google TV lineup to seven models in five screen sizes for 2013 – including premium models featuring its CINEMA SCREEN design.
The extended LG Google TV lineup, which will be officially introduced at next month’s 2013 International CES in Las Vegas, includes two models – the series (GA7900 and GA6400).
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 streamlined access to premium video on-demand, such as HBO GO, content from YouTube and more apps.
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 natural language recognition incorporated in the revamped remote works with Google’s 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 LG Smart TV with Google TV offers connectivity options and can connect to a variety of devices wirelessly.
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).
