Message Text: LG Electronics will unveil its newest Smart TV features as well as its newest collection of 3D glasses at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas next month.

Imbedded in the new CINEMA 3D Smart TV line-up for 2012, LG is aiming to provide CINEMA 3D Smart TV owners with a comprehensive yet easy-to-use home entertainment experience possible, as evidenced by the over 1,200 apps, premium content services and the new Magic Remote.

LG claims that its Smart TV ecosystem has experienced enormous growth over the past year, having launched over 1,200 Smart TV apps. In addition to access to more movies and TV programs, user can access social networking services (SNS) on their LG Smart TVs, make donations to charities and browse famous art collections.



LG's 3D Zone offers a collection of 3D movies and TV shows, while existing 2D movies can be converted to 3D via LG's 3D conversion engine.

Using the TV is also simple thanks to the new Magic Remote. The new Voice Recognition mode lets users enter text -- such as search terms -- by making voice commands. Wheel enables users to swiftly scroll up and down various menus and apps. Magic Gesture makes it possible to communicate physical movements as commands. And lastly, Pointing lets users make on-screen selections quickly without having to scroll or push direction keys repeatedly.

The new CINEMA 3D Smart TVs offer a variety of connectivity features. The newest among them is Intel?s Wireless Display (WiDi) technology, which enables easy k connection between TVs and PCs without the need for cables or Internet access. Through Smart Share Plus, users can access content stored on external devices such as PCs, tablets and smartphones. Smart Share Plus also offers the Screen Share function which streams TV content to external viewing devices using a Wi-Fi connection.

The quantity of content is further expanded through content services available through the Smart TV function. An upgraded Home Dashboard allows for quick browsing. And the shortcuts displayed on the Home Dashboard can be customized, giving users the option to handpick their favorite content and apps for instant access.

LG's newest collection of 3D glasses, including a pair designed by renowned eyewear designer Alain Mikli, will be introduced in the first quarter of 2012. The new 3D glasses -- the F310, the clip-on F320 and the Alain Mikli F360 -- are lighter and more comfortable to wear while upgraded design features such as curved lenses and clean frame structure have transitioned 3D glasses from burdensome requirements to stylish fashion accessories.

The F310 combines soft lines within a slim frame. The lenses have been curved to better accommodate the shape of the wearer's face. The F310 weighs a mere 13.5 grams, making it 20 percent lighter than LG?s previous design.

Another new item for 2012 includes the clip-on F320. Clip-on 3D glasses are unique to 3D TVs based on Film Patterned Retarder (FPR) technology, which is at the heart of CINEMA 3D TV. Compared to the previous generation clip-on 3D glasses, the F320 weighs 25 percent less at 5.5 grams.

Developed in collaboration with Alain Mikli, the F360?s half-rim frame design is sportier and only weighs 16 grams. The lenses of the F360 have been curved and cover most of the wearer?s face. The F360, as well as all 3D glasses from LG, can also worn in theaters showing 3D movies since both CINEMA 3D and theaters utilize the same FPR and RealD technologies.
