LG LSM-100 Mouse Scanner Works with Leading Cloud Apps


SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 2, 2012 – LG Electronics (LG) is revolutionizing the most popular PC input device. The LG LSM-100 Mouse Scanner is a mouse that brings images, text, and tables directly to the cloud environment. At an exclusive event here today, LG demonstrated integration with leading cloud applications that show the power of the new application program interface (API).
“Although the cloud connects more and more content, desktops still limit end-users’ abilities to input data because the mouse and keyboard still work the same way they did 10 years ago,” said H.S. Park, General Manager of Smart Accessory Overseas Marketing, LG Electronics Home Entertainment. “LG’s LSM-100 overcomes several of the traditional limitations and allows users to interact with cloud applications in a totally different way.”
LG selected leading applications to demonstrate the new way of interacting in the cloud. At today’s exclusive event hosted by Swissnex San Francisco, users experienced the LG LSM-100 Mouse Scanner’s smooth integration and unique user experience with applications such as:
· Evernote: Remember everything with the leading cloud-based notes app;
· Dropbox: A free service that lets people bring their documents, photos and videos everywhere and share them easily;
· Expensify: Create expense reports “that don’t suck!” with the leading SMB expense management service;
· Lemon: Collect all your receipts in one place with one of the leading apps for simpler receipt management;
· NewSoft BizCard: Full-featured business card capture and management application to directly scan to Microsoft Outlook®, Google contacts and Salesforce.com®.
As shown at last month’s 2012 International Consumer Electronics Show, LG’s LSM-100 is powered by a new type of scanning technology developed by the Swiss start-up Dacuda that removes the limitations of traditional scanners, giving users the ability to instantly digitize, edit and share paper-based content. Users always see a real-time view of the scan and can use wipe movements to digitize content of almost any format, shape, or size. Images containing text can be edited via the integrated text recognition software that recognizes over 198 languages
