LG Electronics is running living demonstrations of its Google TV models at Internet Week New York. The company’s Smart TV with Google TV, known as the G2 Series, combines Google services with the performance of LG’s new L9 dual-core chipset, as well as a user-friendly interface for the next-generation Google TV experience.
“LG is excited to work with Google to bring Google services to TVs, making it easier for consumers to access a growing amount of content on the big screen,” said Havis Kwon, President and CEO of the LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company. “This all-new TV series reflects our work as a company to deliver the latest technologies to consumers so that they have an immersive and interactive home entertainment experience.”
The G2 Series TVs are purported to be the first Google TV models coming to the U.S. with a dual-core processor. The L9 chipset within the TVs are based on an ARM architecture with a quad-core graphics processing unit (GPU), which is said to offer ultra-fast processing speeds. The chipset powers the TV’s Google TV Search across the Web and live TV, which allows viewers to quickly watch what they want, with little upload and lag time.
The screen also features a TV & Movies app, as well as support for YouTube, Chrome, and the Google Play Store, which LG says will make watching anything, no matter where it is, easy.
