LG puts Skype on TVs, and thin is in

Tech Industry
[ Music ] ^M00:00:04 >> Last year LG introduced TVs with wireless HDMI connectivity and people loved them except we had only one model. So for this year we have developed wireless ready concept. As you can see on this slide, you don't have to pay for any additional hardware until you need the wireless connectivity. You can go wireless by simply attaching a small wireless receiver [inaudible] to the back of the TV. [Inaudible] a separate transmitter controller. We also made a dramatic improvement to the range of the system while maintaining the full HD quality. Here's a list of all the TVs that we'll be launching in 2010. And I'm very happy to announce that most of the new LCD and PDP TVs this year will be wireless ready. Well, how about making a video call using your TV? I'm very excited to introduce our Skype on LG TV technology. By connecting a simple webcam accessory you will be able to make Skype calls to your friends and family members using your TV just like you can on a PC through your broadband connection. So let me see if I can make a video call. Is it Skype? The Internet connection over here is not that good and let's see if it works. Here's a Mr. Brands [assumed spelling] at Skype. Let me see if I can make a phone call. ^M00:01:36 [ Silence ] ^M00:01:44 >> Well, take some time. Here's me. Mr. Brans can see me? >> Yes, I can hear you fine. Thank you. >> Go ahead. Go ahead. You look great. ^M00:02:02 [ Inaudible ] ^M00:02:06 >> Okay. Thank you. Yeah. I'm glad to have this capability on our TVs. Thank you very much. Have a nice day. Well, when you have [inaudible] broadband connections, you have HD quality video call using your TV to your friends. So speaking of broadband connections, we led the industry by introducing the world's first Blu-ray player by integrating Netflix video streaming the BD300 and this year we'll be introducing BD590 with a built-in hard disk drive. And we also made our LG TVs thinner this year to just 23.3 millimeters in thickness. But actually this isn't our slimmest model. We have developed even slimmer [inaudible] technology, and the one coming out right now in the states here has decreased just 6.9 millimeters still with 240 blocks of local dimming with pixel compensation and what's amazing is it has only 10 millimeters of [inaudible]. This is a brand new product and it's exciting. ^M00:03:25 [ Music ] ^M00:03:30
