LG Electronics has extended its licence to use Hillcrest Labs’ Freespace MotionEngine software.
The software enables the point-and-click and motion control features of the LG Magic Remote, used in LG’s OLED, Super UHD and UHD 4K Smart TVs.
The licence began in 2010; the new three-year extension carries it through the end of 2021.
Hillcrest Labs president Chad Lucien said: “LG’s continued use of Hillcrest’s Freespace software underscores the value of the technology, and its ability to enhance and expand the user experience with Smart TVs.
“We’re very proud that such an important part of LG’s TV experience is anchored in Hillcrest’s innovation.”
