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.

Highlights:

  • Jungo’s automotive multimedia middleware, MediaCore, enables rapid development of feature-rich, embedded multimedia players for in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems.
