LG RECOGNIZED FOR ADVANCED SPEECH AND GESTURE RECOGNITION INNOVATIONS

LG’s Smart TV Advanced Speech and Finger Gesture Recognition Receive World’s First Certificate of Validation from Underwriters Laboratories

 

Sydney, Dec. 13, 2013 — LG Electronics’ (LG) Smart TV advanced speech and finger gesture recognition functions have been validated by globally respected product testing and inspection body, Underwriters Laboratories (UL). This marks the first time UL has ever given its stamp of approval to specific smart TV features. The advanced speech and finger gesture functions found in LG’s newest premium Smart TVs are the key components of an intuitive and enjoyable user experience.

“Being the first to receive UL certification for the above mentioned Smart TV features is confirmation of our uniqueness and innovation,” said Lambro Skropidis, General Manager Marketing at LG Australia. “We are committed to advancing the Smart TV experience to bring greater convenience to people’s lives.”

UL conducted tests to evaluate the accuracy, responsiveness and speed of LG’s speech and gesture recognition systems. For speech recognition, UL assessed how well the function comprehended spoken commands, the speed with which those commands were processed, LG’s finger gesture feature was measured in terms of movement-tracking accuracy and the effectiveness of its specialized functions.

The advanced speech and finger gesture recognition functions are likely to be available starting in 2014 on LG Smart TV running the new operating system*. The finger gesture feature is also compatible with the built-in camera or LG’s plug-in camera accessory.

Visitors to the LG booth at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2014 in Las Vegas will have the opportunity to try out LG’s cutting-edge Smart TV technologies for themselves.

*Local Australian market availability has yet to be determined. More details will be released when they are available.
