LG Uplus signed a contract with Walt Disney Company Korea to license Marvel IP to develop an AI speaker that includes Marvel Hero characters.

LG Uplus announced on March 25 that it will release "U+AI_Avengers," a next-generation AI speaker with immersive displays, in time for the release of "Avengers 4:End Games."

LG Uplus recently signed a license agreement for the Marvel IP (Intelligent Property Rights) with Walt Disney Company Korea, the Korean branch of the Walt Disney Company, which has the globally popular "marble" character. 

The upcoming AI speaker will be actively used by globally beloved characters, Iron Man, Hulk, Thor and Captain America.

If the previous AI speaker provided audibly fun such as listening to music, weather and radio based on voice recognition, "U+AI_Avengers" is expected to provide visual satisfaction by utilizing vivid Marvel's 3D character. 

"U+AI_Avengers" can be viewed by setting its favorite Marvel character on the AI speaker display atmospheric screen and also collecting characters through Marvel-related quiz services.

At MWC 2019, LG Uplus unveiled a high-quality, cylindrical AI speaker with a display, which has received favorable reviews from visitors for its three-dimensional and lively expressiveness.

The U+AI_Avengers will be equipped with Naver's artificial intelligence platform Clova. LG Uplus has partnered with Naver to provide AI services to a total of 2.85 million devices, including AI speakers such as "Friends+" and "Friends+Mini," which are equipped with Naver's artificial intelligence platform Clova, and IPTV set-top boxes.
