LG Electronics’ latest partnership seeks to bring interoperable metaverse platforms to TVs

South Korean tech giant LG Electronics announced that it has teamed up with cloud-based technology platform Oorbit and Pixelynx — a company building an integrated music, gaming and Web3 ecosystem — to bring the metaverse directly into the living rooms of viewers.

The collaboration is set to allow viewers to explore interconnected virtual worlds, concerts and artificial intelligence multiplayer games through their LG TVs, making it easier for consumers to interact in the metaverse.

According to a Jan. 4 press release sent to Cointelegraph, users will be able to access “super high fidelity interconnected virtual worlds” and experiences including virtual concerts and AI-generative multiplayer games.

Pooya Koosha, co-founder and chief technology officer of Oorbit, shared:

“Our proprietary technology is the connective tissue that links virtual worlds together and makes it easy for developers and brands to bring their experiences into the metaverse. Scaling our technology for millions of LG TV customers is the next step in making the metaverse accessible for all.”
