LG’s Magic Motion™ Remote Control incorporates motion processing for adding gesture-based interactive TV navigation.
InvenSense, Inc., the leading solution provider of MotionProcessors for consumer electronics, today announced that LG Electronics (LG) has selected the IXZ-500™ dual-axis MEMS gyroscope for the Magic Motion Remote Control within their ultra-slim INFINIA line of LED-backlight LCD 3D TVs. The LG Magic Motion Remote Control will be showcased in the InvenSense Meeting room #MP25370 in South Hall 2 at the 2011 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada from January 6th through the 9th 2011. The Magic Motion remote control integrates a MEMS gyroscope and an innovative graphical user interface allowing for simple and intuitive hand movements to control motion-based navigation.
As the number of program viewing options proliferates and Internet TV access becomes more ubiquitous, in-air pointing, motion-based remote controls will become an increasingly required functionality for all connected TVs. Using simple hand motions to control an on-screen cursor, the Magic Motion Remote Control, provides an optimized solution for fast intuitive navigation of Internet-based applications, television menus, embedded games, and more using LG’s Netcast™ Entertainment Access.
“We are very pleased that LG selected our IXZ-500 gyroscope to enhance the performance and usability of their INFINIA line of LED-backlight LCD TVs,” said Daniel Goehl, Vice President of Sales for InvenSense. “LG is furthering their innovation leadership and value to the consumer by being the first to adopt motion processing in their TVs. With the Magic Motion Remote Control, navigation is more intuitive, easier, and faster.”
