The Parliament will seek help from LG Electronics (Thailand) to check whose mobile phone or tablet has sent a pornographic picture to be shown on LG 65LW6500 65-inch LED-backlit TV in the assembly hall last week.
The LED-backlit TV, which is the main monitor inside the assembly hall, displayed the pornographic picture briefly last week while MPs and senators were deliberating a charter amendment bill in its second reading.
A group of senior officials of the Secretariat of the House of Representatives led a team of technicians of CAT Telecom to check and test how the TV could have received the photo to be displayed over wireless or Wi-Fi connection. Following the test, the officials agreed that House Secretary-General Pithoon Pumhiran would be advised to seek help from LG Electronics to use a special tool to check its data receiving log to see which mobile phone or tablet sent the pornographic to be displayed on the LG TV.
The test found that the LG TV is equipped with a Wi-Fi dongle and is compatible to the so-called DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) so it can receive video clips and digital photos form a mobile gadget that is DLNA-certified using the AllShare application.
