Nuance’s new Dragon TV platform is now powering the voice recognition capabilities in the LG Magic Remote for the LG CINEMA 3D Smart TV.

Initially it supports US English, American Spanish, Canadian French, and Korean languages. LG Magic Remote allows people to use their voice to find their favorite shows, music, movies, and more.

The traditional TV remote control is now innovated due to the changes in digital media and available content on TVs. The conventional remote controls are no longer effective and make it frustrating for users to discover content. LG's Magic Remote features Nuance's Dragon voice recognition, to empower consumers to find and access movies, music or games by their names, actors or even keywords.

Since LG's smart TV sets offer a connected experience, the Magic Remote will help use voice recognition to search for Web content by keywords or phrases, as well as access social media sites such as Facebook or YouTube. "LG's smart TV portfolio was designed to give consumers a unique and unmatched living room experience, an array of entertainment and media content at their fingertips. And by integrating Nuance's voice technology, it's quickly and easily available with the spoken word," said Taegil Cho, Vice President and Leader of TV Product Planning Group, LGE.

Dragon TV is a new interactive voice platform by Nuance for televisions, device and set-top box OEMS as well as subscription operators. Dragon TV makes it easy and fun to find and access shows, movies and content. Delivering Nuance's voice recognition and language understanding technology, Dragon TV allows users to find content by speaking, including station names, channel numbers, shows and movies, and also enables them to stay connected via Facebook, Skype, and Twitter.

The LG Magic Remote will be available from LG in 2012. To learn more, please visit http://www.lg.com.
