SEOUL, Mar. 14, 2013 — Smart Video, a new multimedia UX feature from LG
Electronics (LG), will be unveiled for the first time in the Optimus G
Pro. Smart Video takes viewing videos on mobile devices to a whole new
level of convenience with eye recognition that eliminates the need to
manually control playback during the viewing experience.
Through the implementation of advanced eye recognition technology,
Smart Video recognizes the position of the viewer’s eyes and
automatically plays or stops the video without any manual input from the
user. When the viewer’s eyes are no longer focused on the smartphone
display, the front camera recognizes this and immediately pauses the
video automatically. Once the user’s gaze returns to the smartphone, the
video resumes playback from the point last viewed.
In addition to the Smart Video feature, Optimus G Pro will also be
equipped with the world’s first Dual Camera function. The Dual Camera
feature is an extension of the Dual Recording feature which debuted on
the Optimus G Pro introduced in the Korean market last month. Dual
Camera simultaneously captures photographs using both the front and back
cameras for a picture-in-picture composition. Users can now be a part
of the story, not just observers.
“LG is continuously innovating to offer creative ways to offer a
user experience that adds value to our customers,” said Dr. Jong-seok
Park, president and CEO of LG Elec-tronics Mobile Communications
Company. “It’s the positive UX that will differentiate smartphones in
2013 and beyond, not only cutting-edge hardware specs.”
The Smart Video and Dual Camera features will be introduced as a
part of the Value Pack upgrade which will be offered for the Optimus G
Pro in the Korean market next month. These features will also be made
available for some LG premium smartphones in the future.
Other features in the Value Pack upgrade include:
• Magic Remote Pad and Text Keypad via the QRemote function. These new options for QRemote work specifically with LG
Smart TVs to enhance convenience when using Optimus G Pro as a remote control for LG Smart TVs.
• The Smart LED Lighting outlining the home button of the Optimus G Pro will be upgraded so users can customize the colors
to correspond to their favorite contacts. The
flashing of the LED in different colors will allow users to identify the
incoming calls, missed calls, unread messages and emails.
• Video Pause/Resume allows the user to stop and start in record mode for one continuous video file.
• The first Color Emoticons in an Android smartphone for more personalized text messages.
