LG Google TV
LG is increasing its 2013 Google TV lineup to seven new models in five screen sizes. Two model series, GA7900 (47 to 55-inch) and GA6400 (42 to 60-inch), are announced. The former has dimming and LG’s Cinema Screen design applied for a sleek and modern look. Other headline features include an updated Home Dashboard to aid in discovery of new content, wireless connectivity, and pre-installed OnLive app for gamers. Powered by a dual-core CPU, the LG Google TV touts fast menu navigation, web browsing, and video streaming. And let’s not forget about the redesigned Magic Remote Qwerty that combines a keyboard with point-and-click control. Better yet, this updated remote supports natural language recognition, which should help tremendously when you’re searching for content. Image quality also receives a boost as the extra processing power allows the TruPicture XD Engine to work more efficiently and effectively. For 3D, the LG Google TV employs LG’s Film Patterned Retarder (FPR) technology.
