(MENAFN Press) LG Electronics' (LG) Smart TV advanced speech and finger gesture recognition functions have been validated by globally respected product testing and inspection body, Underwriters Laboratories (UL). This marks the first time UL has ever given its stamp of approval to specific smart TV features. The advanced speech and finger gesture functions found in LG's newest premium Smart TVs are the key components of an intuitive and enjoyable user experience.

"Being the first to receive UL certification for Smart TV features is confirmation of our innovation's uniqueness and innovation," said Do-joon Lee, Vice President and head of the UX Division in LG's Home Entertainment Company. "We are committed to ad-vancing the Smart TV experience to bring greater convenience to people's lives."

UL conducted a battery of tests to evaluate the accuracy, responsiveness and speed of LG's speech and gesture recognition systems. For speech recognition, UL assessed how well the function comprehended spoken commands, the speed with which those com-mands were processed, LG's finger gesture feature was measured in terms of move-ment-tracking accuracy and the effectiveness of its specialized functions.


The advanced speech and finger gesture recognition functions will be available starting in 2014 on LG Smart TV running the new operating system. The finger gesture feature is also compatible with the built-in camera or LG's plug-in camera accessory.

Visitors to the LG booth at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2014 in Las Vegas will have the opportunity to try out LG's cutting-edge Smart TV technolo-gies for themselves.
