Barcelona, Spain — LG Electronics said Monday it plans to demonstrate its Wireless Ultra High-Definition Transmission technology here this week for the first time at the Mobile World Congress.
The company said the next-generation mobile feature will enable viewing games and other smartphone content on Ultra HD TVs in real time, via wireless data transfer.
“Thanks to our innovative Wireless Ultra HD Transmission technology, users can now enjoy their favorite mobile content on today’s most advanced Ultra HD TVs,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “With the development of this cutting-edge technology, LG again confirms its industry leadership in the area of display and mobile convergence for a truly enjoyable viewing experience.”
LG said Wireless Ultra HD Transmission technology makes the delivery of smartphone multimedia content to TVs faster and smoother than previous mobile video compression and transfer systems.
The technology is said to have minimal lag and data loss using ubiquitous Wi-Fi connections.
During transmission, multimedia content is automatically adjusted to match the receiving TV’s screen resolution, while consuming less than half the power of other similar transmission technologies.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
