Hillcrest Labs, LG renew licence for smart TV technology

Wednesday 20 February 2019 | 11:31 CET | News
LG Electronics extended its licence to use Hillcrest Labs' Freespace MotionEngine software in its smart TVs for an additional three years. Hillcrest's software enables the point-and-click and motion control features of the LG Magic Remote, which comes with LG's OLED, Super UHD and UHD 4K Smart TV product lines. LG began licensing Hillcrest's technology in 2010 and has since shipped tens of millions of TVs that work with Hillcrest's motion control technology. This latest agreement extends LG's licence through the end of 2021. Hillcrest Labs is a subsidiary of InterDigital.
