With this technology, users will be able to wirelessly display the content from their smartphone, such as a game, to an Ultra HD television. According to the announcement, this transfer method is smoother and faster previous offerings.

The Wireless Ultra HD Transmission technology works by compressing video for optimized wireless transfer to a corresponding Ultra HD TV, with LG promising very little data loss and lag between the two devices. In order to avoid wonky graphics, the video that is being transferred from the mobile device is automatically set to match the TV's resolution.

With the development of this cutting-edge technology, LG again confirms its industry leadership in the area of display and mobile convergence for a truly enjoyable viewing experience.”

Because of this, the transfer process is easier on the smartphone's processor and associated hardware.
