LG Electronics announces beta opening of their LG Cloud service
Everyone seems to be jumping aboard the cloud bandwagon these days, and LG Electronics does not want to miss out on this opportunity as well. Having said that, LG Electronics have announced the beta opening of their LG Cloud service with the main objective listed as offering seamless connectivity and streaming access to all digital content across an array of different electronic devices.
While the word cloud is one of today’s hottest IT buzzwords, the LG Cloud claims to be the first of its kind which enables users to manage and consume all types of content across “three screens” – where this would mean an Android-powered smartphone, PCs and smart TVs (which are not limited to CINEMA 3D models) without the need for a separate set-top box.
In order to make use of the service, users are required to download the LG Cloud app from Google Play or LG SmartWorld app store from their Android smartphones, LG SmartWorld store from their LG Smart TVs or the LG Cloud website (www.lgecloud.com) from their PCs or notebooks. LG’s Cloud service is smart enough to automatically synchronize smartphone content with the cloud server, alongside the user’s PC and TV. Both photos and videos that were taken with the smartphone can also be viewed and streamed to the PC or TV just about instantaneously without any lag.
Apart from that, videos that were edited on a PC can also be uploaded to LG Cloud for viewing later over a smartphone. What is different from other cloud services is this – there is very little waiting or lag time as the content is streamed to the TV, PC or smartphone, and no downloading os required in the first place at all.
What makes this difference? LG’s Real-time Streaming Transcoding technology is the answer, as the conversion itself happens on the server in realtime, and not on the device itself. You need not worry about installing codecs or converters, since everything happens seamlessly and in the background, without any of the user’s involvement, and no other cloud service can say that they offer the same.
