LG Electronics launched its new Pentouch TV at IFA in Berlin yesterday.
The PZ850T also features 3D technology and 2D to 3D conversion. Connecting the TV to a computer allows users to access content and software stored on the users PC, as well as the internet.
“We’re all used to touch screens being available on our phones and even tablets now, but LG is one of the first to be offering this technology on large TV screens,” said Stephen Gater, consumer electronics marketing director LG UK.
Users activate the 'Pentouch' mode with a single click on the remote control and can also access files created on their PCs and work on them, edit them, or move them around the screen. The TV supports simultaneous two-pen use, and batteries can be recharged through USB ports on the back of the TV unit.
Viewers will also be able to draw pictures directly onto the screen and then save the files for further editing or effects. By connecting the TV to a PC, users can print their Pentouch creations.
More advanced software features include Gallery, which comes with a built-in slide show feature, Family Calendar and Digital Photo Frame, which lets users embellish their work with the frame of their choice. The Pentouch TV can also connect to the internet for downloading applications.
Launch details and pricing have yet to be announced.
