LG Electronics Selects Jungo for In-Car Infotainment Systems
Jungo, now part of Cisco, a leading supplier of automotive multimedia
middleware and connectivity software solutions, has been selected by
South Korean consumer electronics giant LG Electronics to provide
multimedia middleware that will power next-generation infotainment
systems to be installed in new automobiles from various carmakers.
Jungo’s automotive multimedia middleware, MediaCore, enables rapid
development of feature-rich, embedded multimedia players for
in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems. The operating system and
hardware-independent, middleware meets both user demand for
sophisticated in-car technologies and the escalating need of OEMs for
scalable and affordable solutions.
The current agreement is the fourth such project between Jungo and the
LG Electronics Car R&D laboratory, underlining the long-term strategic
partnership between the two companies. Through LG Electronics, Jungo
has previously provided media playback solutions for both South Korean
and global car manufacturers.
The functionality provided by the Jungo middleware includes
comprehensive multimedia management, ranging from support for playback
from iPod/iPhone/iPad, Android Smartphones and storage devices, to
metadata parsing and management, intelligent indexing, connectivity
protocols, a simple, unified API for IVI application development and a
plug-in framework for custom extensions.
“This additional agreement with the LG Electronics Car R&D laboratory is
an important milestone for Jungo and highlights the strategic nature of
the relationship,” said Jungo Connectivity General Manager Ophir Herbst.
“Jungo is thrilled at the prospect of providing its cutting-edge
infotainment technology for additional cars with LG Electronics.”
