LG to introduce world's first LCD panel with Intel's WiDi tech

By on September 9, 2013, 10:30 AM

LG Display has unveiled what it calls the world's first LCD panel for monitors with Intel's Wireless Display (WiDi) technology built-in. As of right now the company is talking about a 23.8-Inch LCD display that, with the WiDi tech, will allow users to stream content from their WiDi enabled devices directly to the display without the need of any additional gear.

LG has partnered up with Intel on this one, the WiDi tech is built-in using a key chipset integrated directly in the LCD panel. The interesting thing here is that LG will also facilitate OEMs and other monitor manufacturers with the new tech. WiDi enabled devices are fairly hard to come by in today's marketplace, but by offering the tech up "nimbly" and in a cost effective way, LG will allow for other monitor companies to adopt the tech much sooner and easier than they may have anyway.

Asus recently unveiled its own batch of new monitors, including those with Thunderbolt connectivity, 3D, multitouch and WiDi functionality.

“LG Display’s latest development brings us closer to the N-Screen era,” Sang-Yeol Kim, Vice President of the IT and Mobile Product Planning Division at LG, said today. “Through our close collaboration with Intel Corporation, we look forward to pioneering the age of wireless devices with our global partners.”

LG Display's new WiDi enabled LCD panel will make its debut in San Francisco at the 2013 Intel Developer Forum. The show kicks off tomorrow and will run until September 12 at the Moscone Convention Center.
