We have been talking a lot about our new Cinema 3D technology on the blog lately, discussing the advantages over Active 3D as well as our partnership with Sky as their first choice in 3D TVs. But Cinema 3D is not our only new addition to our Home Entertainment range for 2011, we have also introduced Smart TV to our rostra of great tech.
Easy to use:
Smart TV, in the simplest terms, allows you to access the best of the internet directly on the big screen in an intuitive and easy way! This includes TV Live, Premium Content, TV Apps and a Launch Bar. When you press the Smart TV button on your remote you will be greeted with the following dashboard:
This menu can be navigated with your standard remote. But we have come up with solutions to make this easier for you.
Magic Motion Remote Control
In a similar manner to the Wii remote, the LG Magic Motion Remote allows for a point and click style navigation of the menus and sub-menus. You can also drag, flick, and select your preferences easily, without the hassle of using multiple buttons and arrow keys.
If that wasn’t easy enough you can also download an application that allows you to navigate Smart TV through your iPhone or Android device. With a touchscreen interface allowing you to move the onscreen cursor by moving your finger on your phone screen, the app is available to download from the Apple App Store and the Android Marketplace
LG Smart Share is another great feature to make your life easier. With Smart Share you can access music, videos and photos from your PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone wirelessly! Using DLNA you can set up a network to access multiple DLNA certified devices to stream your content onto your TV.
Smart Share’s Media Link also converts your multimedia into a designer library, pulling detailed information for your music and films by automatically searching for more information from the web. The plot summary, cast director, viewer ratings, and other related information are displayed on screen instantly.
Connect to Smart TV wirelessly
To access Smart TV on your enabled LG TV you need not connect your TV to the router, trailing wires across the living room to trip over. Instead you can use the LG Wi-Fi dongle that presents you with a simple set of onscreen instructions to set up once plugged into your TV.
We will cover more of the great features of LG’s Smart TV soon.
Smart TV is also available on our LW550T and LW650T flagship Cinema 3D sets!
