LG and Qualcomm have now become partners and incorporated Qualcomm's AllJoyn software in their 2014 line of Smart TVs. AllJoyn support will allow smartphones, tablets and other devices of any brand or OS to simultaneously connect with LG Smart TV.
LG Electronics announced its partnership with Qualcomm's AllJoyn on Wednesday. LG will be the first company that will integrate the AllJoyn open source software framework into its Smart TV platform. This partnership will give LG Smart TV users seamless multi-device communication facility.
“LG is at the forefront of the device connectivity revolution,” said Richard Choi, Senior Vice President of the Smart Business Center at LG Electronics. “LG will now enable consumers to more effortlessly connect their networked devices in the home and continues to show a strong commitment to the next generation of convergence technology.”
AllJoyn is a creative software developed by Qualcomm Innovation Center, Inc. This software is built to develop a common language that seamlessly connects the Internet of Things, regardless of brand or operating system (OS). This software will enable iOS, Android, Windows or any other device (smartphone, tablet, household appliance and more) to simultaneously connect with LG Smart TVs. Hence, TV owners will experience a new level of interoperability between devices with this new multi-device environment.
Any device can freely communicate with 2014 LG Smart TVs supported by AllJoyn. This will give LG Smart TV users an unimaginable amount of freedom to connect via any device. Users can interact in a cross-OS environment with their Smart TVs by utilizing certain new methods. This will offer new opportunities to app developers too.
