“LG has constantly strived to provide consumers with

sophistication and convenience. Through Google TV, LG has merged Google’s
established Android operating system with LG’s proven 3D and Smart TV
technologies, offering consumers a new and enthralling TV experience,”
Havis Kwon, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company.

LG Google TV offers Android-based user interface and
Magic Remote Qwerty designed by LG. LG Google TV’s user interface and main
screen have been designed for convenient browsing and content selection.
Multi-tasking is also possible, as the search, social networking and TV
functions can be run simultaneously. The user interface can be accessed using
the Magic Remote Qwerty which combines the user-friendly benefits of LG’s Magic
Remote with a QWERTY keyboard.

Equipped with LG’s CINEMA 3D technology, LG Google TV
provides a home entertainment experience that is immersive and convenient.
Based on LG’s own Film Patterned Retarder (FPR) technology, CINEMA 3D glasses
are battery-free and lightweight. The glasses are also affordable, making LG’s
Google TV ideal for viewing by a large group of family and friends when used in
3D mode. And with a single click of the remote, any 2D content can be viewed in
3D, thanks to the built-in 2D to 3D conversion engine. 

Alongside Google TV, LG will continue to advance its own
Smart TV platform based on NetCast using open web technology such as Webkit
browser and Linux. LG Smart TV with NetCast will be available globally in 85
plus countries at launch.  With a growing collection of content and
services, LG’s Smart TV platform will continue to provide consumers with a
