Mobile connectivity main focus of LG AV systems

LG has announced a number of AV systems the company will be demonstrating at CES, alongside the recently-revealed Hecto Laser TV Projector. Of the five audio products that will be shown, two will use Near Field Communication (NFC) to connect to mobile devices, while Bluetooth connectivity is also prevalent among the remainder.

The BH9430PW 9.1-channel speaker system use NFC for wireless content mirroring, effectively allowing for content displayed on a smartphone or tablet to appear on a TV screen. The speaker system adds four channels to the typical 5.1-system setup for enhanced audio, uses high-tensile Aramid fibers in the sound cone construction for a wider range of sound with near-zero sound distortion, and adds a Private Sound Mode that feeds the system's sound over Wi-Fi to a smartphone.

Also using NFC for the same purpose, the BP730 3D Blu-ray player includes Smart TV features such as video-on-demand through Hulu Plus, Netflix, and Pandora. Compatible with the LG Magic Remote and its point-and-wheel controls, the Blu-ray player can also perform a cross-service search for content, letting the same search term be checked within multiple apps.

The NB4530A sound bar provides 2.1-channel audio through its 310W speakers. Measuring 35mm (1.3-inches) tall, the sound bar can use HDMI with an Audio Return Channel (HDMI ARC) to play audio from the TV without additional cables, while its Bluetooth connection allows it to connect to various supported mobile devices.

The 80W ND8630 dual docking speaker supports dock-and-play for iOS and Android phones and tablets, and is capable of wirelessly playing music files from PCs, notebooks and others over Bluetooth and AirPlay. It can also charge the batteries of docked devices, and contains a mood lamp with an ambient light-sensing Smart Sensor as part of its cylindrical design.

Lastly, the NP6630 is a 20W portable speaker. Supporting NFC, AirPlay, and Bluetooth, it will play audio from most mobile devices.

Further details on the systems will be revealed at CES in January.
