The ZigBee Alliance said this week that LG and Toshiba have agreed to join its ZigBee RF4CE Steering Committee, which is geared towards encouraging adoption of ZigBee's ZigBee RF4CE standard in the CE industry.
Samsung, Sony, Philips and Texas Instruments are among existing members that LG and Toshiba will join.
"ZigBee RF4CE is helping CE manufacturers create products that not only work better, but also have features that bring a unique and new user experience to their consumer audience," Bob Heile, chairman of the ZigBee Alliance, said as part of the announcement. "The addition of LG Electronics and Toshiba to the steering committee is a testament to the growing influence that the ZigBee RF4CE standard is making on the CE industry."
