At NAB this week LG is introducing a Mobile TV that integrates social networking, 3D telecasts (glasses-free), and electronic coupons. The LG prototype is a 7″ mobile TV with antenna capable of displaying auto-stereoscopic images within the ATSC Mobile DTV Standard format.
LG will also show off Tweet-TV, a technology that combines social networking communication with television content which the broadcaster integrates pre-output to the air.
Electronic Coupons is another technology which LG will display on their touch CDMA device with Mobile TV capability. The smartphone based on the Android 2.2 (Froyo) operating system displays digital coupons via the ATSC Mobile Digital TV standard.
“As broadcasters continue their national rollout of Mobile DTV, LG is proud to lead the transition with the latest innovations in mobile DTV services like 3D and applications like Tweet-TV and Electronic Coupons,” said Dr. Skott Ahn, president and chief technology officer, LG Electronics, Inc.
