LAS VEGAS – Jungo, a part of Cisco, a 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.
“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.”
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.
