Samsung Smart TV: Introducing the Samsung Smart Hub

Samsung, the global electronics giant, has recently launched a range of smart TVs packed with features that allows you to maximise your entertainment experience. The most prominent feature of this latest offering is the new landing page called the Smart Hub, which comes with almost every 40” or larger Samsung TV, released in 2011. Here’s looking at what the Smart Hub’s all about:

Overview of the Smart Hub: The Smart Hub is a simple and easy to use menu system that allows you to connect multiple devices to enjoy a gamut of TV optimised entertainment content. With the Smart Hub, you can search for movies and TV shows (by going online), browse the Internet and even download hundreds of apps from Samsung Apps. The web browser is full-feature, with bookmarks, passwords and favourites. You can even use the Search All feature to search for content across devices such as your laptop.

 Recommendations: In the spirit of all things smart, the Smart Hub also gives you personalised recommendations on what to watch based on your viewing pattern and search/browsing history. What’s more, every family member can set individual profiles on the TV and get specific viewing recommendations.
 Samsung Social TV: All of Samsung’s connected TVs will now have the Social TV app which allows you to access all your favourite social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter as well as IM programmes such as Google Talk. The Social TV app, combined with the Picture-in-Picture ability, means that you can keep watching your current video while updating your Facebook status! Thanks to Social TV, you can even discuss whatever you're watching on TV with your friends across social networks. Smart Hub also lets you video chat with loved ones across the world via Skype, but you’ll need to purchase the webcam separately.

3D Sound and Picture: Smart Hub, in conjunction with One Design, also facilitates 3D audio and video for an incredibly immersive TV watching experience. The Smart Hub even lets you convert your 2D movies into rich and realistic 3D versions.

The Smart Hub is effectively designed to allow you fuss-free access to anything you're in the mood to watch. Its interface may seem a tad cluttered in the beginning and takes some getting used to because we’re still not familiar with the amazing possibilities of Smart TVs.

With more and more of Samsung’s products being pre-installed with Smart Hub, it is a matter of time before you can connect all your Samsung devices seamlessly for a grand entertainment experience. Watch this space for more on intelligent devices from Samsung equipped with Smart Hub.
