LG introduces breakthrough mobile technology
Manama , September 8, 2010
LG Electronics showcased a major breakthrough in mobile and home convergence, the DLNA-based technology for LG Optimus 7 at this year's IFA trade show in Berlin which concluded on Tuesday.
The new technology makes it possible to share multimedia files on LG’s upcoming LG Optimus 7 and all DLNA compliant digital devices at the touch of a finger, said a company official.
“This unique feature is a direct response to the growing need for technologies that empower users to share multimedia content across electronic devices,” explained HS Paik, president of LG Gulf FZE.
“LG Optimus 7 smartphones will be at the center of a complete entertainment experience, representing LG’s leadership in mobile convergence,” he noted.
LG’s unique multimedia sharing technology on LG Optimus 7 allows users to enjoy content on the phone across today’s digital platforms with a simple finger flick, he added.
According to Paik, this preinstalled feature allows users to send files directly from the phone’s media galleries, without having to leave for another application.
'The phone will automatically display compatible devices in the same Wi-Fi zone and let users literally flick media files to the targeted device. Users can transfer multimedia saved on their phones - 720p HD videos, high-resolution photos and high-quality music files - wirelessly to their TV or home theatre system,' he added.
Paik said the unique media file-sharing technology will be embedded in the upcoming LG Optimus 7 smartphones, which go on sale early in the fourth quarter of this year.
With more than 240 leading consumer electronics brands adopting the media sharing technology, DLNA is expected to set a new industry standard for home entertainment, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
