MotionEngine Smart TV vs Lite

Two MotionEngine products are optimized for the needs of Smart TV companies: MotionEngine Smart TV and MotionEngine Lite. MotionEngine Smart TV is typically host-based and provides the most comprehensive and advanced motion processing features available to the industry. MotionEngine Lite is typically an embedded solution which provides comparable pointing and cursor control performance without some of the additional motion features provided by the full Smart TV software.
