2013 CES News: LG Puts NFC into Its AV Lineup


As the 2013 CES is coming soon, LG is now busy introducing its products, and the next stop is its AV catalog.

The running theme this year is NFC: both the BH9430PW 9.1-channel home theater and the BP730 Blu-ray player have the short-range wireless technology built in, to simplify mirroring content from your Optimus G (and, most likely, other NFC phones).

The surround system also packs an iPod dock and a Private Audio Mode that funnels sound to a nearby smartphone when a quiet house is needed.

Beyond these two devices, LG promises the Bluetooth-equipped, 310W NB4530A sound bar, a ND8630 speaker dock with both Android and iOS support (including AirPlay and Bluetooth) and an NP6630 portable speaker that stuffs AirPlay, Bluetooth and NFC into its frame.

We’ll know more at CES next month.
