Smart TV
With a vast array of movie, lifestyle, gaming and 3D choices, consumers looking for international or local content can quickly find what they want on their LG Smart CINEMA 3D TVs.

LG’s Smart CINEMA 3D TVs employ Film Patterned Retarder (FPR) technology for superior 3D viewing comfort. This technology uses lightweight glasses to create a comfortable 3D viewing experience without the distracting flicker or crosstalk of active shutter-style glasses.

SmartShareTM
The enhanced SmartShareTM feature offers users the ability to mirror or transfer content from smart devices to LG Smart TVs via a multitude of connectivity options, including WiDi and Miracast. The 2013 line-up will enhance inter-device sharing further by implementing Tag On. This feature immediately connects two devices for speedy media sharing. To use Tag On, the user simply holds a smartphone or other NFC-enabled device against the NFC sticker on a Smart CINEMA 3D TV. The 2013 line-up also supports LG Cloud, which allows the user to remotely stream high-quality content from practically any location.

Smart Control
LG offers the very definition of Smart Control with its enhanced Smart Home and Magic Remote. The new Smart Home onscreen interface featuring My Interest Cards – a special folders for apps and other content – provides easy, quick access to what’s trending on news sites and can be customised according to the needs and preferences of the user.
Magic Remote
The Magic Remote has been redesigned to fine-tune content and menu navigation, to include features such as Voice Mate, an enhanced version of LG’s voice control, making interaction as simple and intuitive as possible. The Magic Remote is like no other system, enabling users to experiment and discover the most comfortable way to enjoy their LG Smart TV.
