Smart Interaction - Launch and use apps more easily through Motion Control, Voice Control and Face Recognition.
Smart Content - Share photos, memories and memos with family from the TV to the cloud to smart devices, manage your own health directly from the TV, and access educational content for kids. The industry's broadest offering of movies, TV shows and streaming videos can be enjoyed via Samsung Apps, the industry's preferred TV apps platform, and Samsung Media Hub. Samsung Smart Hub offers multi-tasking - surf the web while using or downloading multiple apps simultaneously.
Smart Evolution - Select Samsung TVs in 2012 will allow consumers to enjoy new experiences as their TV is 'reborn' each year with the latest smart technology, simply by installing kits.

Samsung's premium 2012 Smart TVs will feature Samsung's Smart Interaction technology - a platform that uses Motion Control, Voice Control and Face Recognition commands for the TV. Smart Interaction complements the remote and seeks to offer users greater choice and convenience in how they control their home entertainment experience.

For example, users can turn the TV on or off, activate selected apps or search for content in the web browser simply by speaking in any of the 20 to 30 languages that are supported by the technology. With a wave of their hand, they can browse and choose a link or content via the web browser. The built-in camera recognizes movement in the foreground and two unidirectional array microphones recognize voice.

Samsung's premium Smart TVs - including the UNES8000 LED TV and PNE8000 Plasma TV - are powered by a new dual-core processor to enable multi-tasking, so apps no longer need to be exited and relaunched.

Samsung's Smart Hub user interface has also been redesigned for faster performance and improved convenience with a cleaner, more intuitive interface in Full HD. With a tabbed web browser, users can open multiple pages at a time, while the new Content Bar remembers recent activities for easy access to content.

With over 1,400 apps globally, Samsung Apps has popular favorites such as CNBC Real Time, ESPN ScoreCenter, Hulu Plus, MTV Music Meter, Netflix and TIME TV. New apps in 2012 include Angry Birds, Bravo, M-GO from Technicolor, The Daily and VH1's 'I Love the 80's Trivia'.

Also new in 2012, Samsung will extend the availability of its successful Media Hub app, currently pre-loaded on Galaxy S smartphones and Galaxy Tabs, to the TV. The app offers consumers all-star entertainment and a diverse selection of movies and TV shows the day after they air, as well as past seasons of the shows. In addition, select movies will be available the day they are released on DVD.

Samsung's new AllShare Play marks an evolution of its AllShare feature. AllShare Play allows users to upload and share multimedia content with AllShare Play compatible devices such as smartphones, tablets, cameras and computers.

2012 Samsung Smart TVs will be future-proofed for years to come. Thanks to its proprietary system-on-chip technology, Samsung is the only company that can deliver an evolving TV that allows you to easily enjoy the benefits of the latest TV technology year after year without purchasing a brand new set. With a simple slot-in at the back of TV, Samsung's Evolution Kit will bring the latest and greatest TV technology to life.
