Siva Reports on Expanding its Partnership With LG in the Smart TV Market
LG will expand the use of its smart TV remote control, based on Siva’s sensor fusion technology and part of the popular webOS operating system, to other TV
The provider of wireless connectivity technologies and smart sensing, Siva, announced the expansion of its partnership with LG in the smart TV market. Under the agreement between the two companies, the use of the smart remote control, which is based on Siva‘s sensor fusion software and is part of the popular webOS operating system, will also be extended to other TV brands.
Siva‘s MotionEngine sensor fusion software is integrated with the smart intuitive remote control of LG TVs. It enables the analysis of information from motion and acceleration sensors and beyond to content and channels through precise control of the cursor using the point-and-click method.
The new agreement with LG will allow the electronics giant to expand its presence in the smart TV market, and other TV manufacturers to develop and market, for the first time, software-based TVs with a webOS system that integrates Siva technology.
Popular smart remote
“Expanding the webOS infrastructure to other TV brands is an important milestone in promoting LG‘s TV operations, which combine software and content services,” said LG Sang-wu, senior vice president of strategy at LG. The capabilities of the hand-held smart remote control, based on Siva‘s sensor fusion software, play an integral role in the popularity of the webOS operating system. Presenting this intuitive remote as part of the webOS system to other TV brands is the key to realizing our vision in the TV industry. ”
Expanding the customer base
Siva‘s Sensor Fusion Division Manager, Chad Lucian, added: “Our partnership with LG has lasted for more than a decade, and we are pleased with LG’s progress to a new stage in its home entertainment business and the expansion of its partnership. LG‘s TV infrastructure and smart remote control, based on our sensor fusion software, are praised and contribute to increasing the use of the webOS operating system and expanding the customer base.
