LG Extends Mobile Experience to TV Screens with Connect SDK  Print E-mail

LG has announced the release of its Connect SDK (software development kit). The open source software is designed for Google Android and iOS developers, giving them more options to connect mobile devices and apps to large screen TVs.

"Connect SDK is breaking down barriers to enable apps and devices to work together harmoniously. The screen size, capabilities and social nature of Smart TVs enable experiences that consumers will absolutely love," said Samuel Chang, LG Electronics USA vice president and head of the LG Silicon Valley Lab.

With LG's Connect SDK, developers can connect mobile apps with 2014 LG webOS Smart TVs, LG Smart TVs from 2012 and 2013, and Roku, Google Chromecast, and Amazon Fire TV media players. This will allow users to transmit photos, audio, video, and other media from various mobile devices and applications to numerous big screen television platforms.

"We’ve already invested in making the best personal media viewing experience on the big screen across multiple platforms," said Scott Olechowski, Chief Product Officer and co-founder of Plex. "With Connect SDK, we were able to quickly extend that Plex experience to LG Smart TVs and we are now exploring ways we can integrate unique webOS capabilities."

"The best way to enjoy your music collection with those around you is musiXmatch,” said Massimo Ciociola, CEO and founder of musiXmatch. “TV by nature is a social device, and we’ve spent a lot of time thinking about the best way to extend a big screen experience to our mobile users. The opportunity that is available with Connect SDK made the decision a very obvious one."

Connect SDK is now available for iOS and Android developers to download at ConnectSDK.com.
