LG is all about product synergy at MWC 2013, demoing the ability to beam 4K resolution video from a phone to an Ultra HD television -- no wires necessary. There's no specifics mentioned about the technology in use other than that it uses "ubiquitous" WiFi connections, but LG claims its technique uses less than half the power others require. That's achieved by reducing the drain on the phone's CPU and other hardware, but we'll have to wait for a hands-on opportunity to learn more about how this works -- and to save up enough money to buy one of those Ultra HDTVs.
LG TO DEMONSTRATE WORLD'S FIRST WIRELESS ULTRA HD TRANSMISSION TECHNOLOGY AT MWC 2013
Latest Mobile Convergence Technology Enables Users to
Enjoy Smartphone Content on Ultra HD TVs
SEOUL, Feb. 24, 2013 ㅡ LG Electronics (LG) will showcase its industry-leading Wireless Ultra High Definition (Ultra HD) Transmission technology for the first time at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2013 in Barcelona. This exciting next generation mobile feature enables users to view 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."
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. With minimal lag and data loss, LG's next generation mobile feature performs this feat using ubiquitous WiFi connections. During transmission, multimedia content is automatically adjusted to match the receiving TV's screen resolution, resulting in flawless visuals.
What's more, LG's Wireless Ultra HD Transmission system consumes less than half the power of other similar transmission technologies. It achieves this by reducing the burden on the smartphone's CPU and other hardware resources.
Visitors to MWC can see this technology for themselves at the LG Booth in Hall 3 of Fira Gran Via from February 25-28.
