Built with Qt
LG has a diverse product portfolio and is one of the world’s leading producers with products spanning from flat-screen TVs, mobile devices, air conditioners, washing machines, refrigerators to automotive infotainment systems. Qt has been an integral part of LG ever since they acquired webOS, initially developed by Palm Inc. — who were using Qt to develop the Palm Pilot, and LG has extended the use of Qt to a wide range of current products and upcoming innovations.
LG’s webOS platform is a Linux kernel based multitasking operating system for devices including smart TVs and wearables such as smart watches. It now utilizes a number of web applications that run in the Qt WebEngine, based on Chromium – delivering both high performance and high quality with an extremely responsive and visually appealing UI. Using Qt also helps to simplify optimization of web app performance allowing them to reduce development time drastically. No wonder they are selling millions of TVs around the world.
The Silicon Valley Labs group, which is leading the commercial product releases for LG are also focusing on creating innovation with all the new and upcoming technology within artificial intelligence, virtual reality and augmented reality and Qt will be an essential building block to accelerate their innovation.
