MWC 2013: LG Unveils First Wireless Ultra HD Transmission Technology

LG is providing us with a glimpse of a new technology that will bring wireless transmission of content from smartphones to Ultra HD TV’s in real time. The technology can take 1080p video and transmit it to a TV. LG’s Wireless Ultra High Definition Transmission technology will be debuted at MWC in Barcelona earlier today, and is looking pretty sweet.

“Thanks to our innovative Wireless Ultra HD Transmission technology, users can now enjoy their favorite mobile content on today’s most advanced Ultra HD TVs,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “With the development of this cutting-edge technology, LG again confirms its industry leadership in the area of display and mobile convergence for a truly enjoyable viewing experience.”

The new technology is promising to make the delivery of multimedia smartphone content to TV’s with minimal lag and data loss, and uses WiFi connections and Miracast technology to achieve delivery with amazing resolution. The content is automatically adjusted to match the TV’s screen resolution during transmission.

The new transmission technology reduces the processing burden on the smartphone’s CPU and other hardware, consuming less than half of the power of similar transmission technologies. It is looking quite impressive, and LG is definitely paving the way for easier multimedia sharing to High Definition TV sets.
