Now available in the UK is Samsung’s latest range of LED and Plasma Smart TVs. First announced at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the new line up boasts the company’s latest Smart Interaction2 technology.
Using Voice Control, Motion Control and Face Recognition you can turn the TV on or off, adjust the volume or activate selected apps through speech or a wave of the hand. Face Recognition activates your personal profile and your favourite apps meaning you don’t have to spend your time searching through content.
Part of the company’s ‘Smart Content’ suite of services, Family Story, Fitness and Kids enable families to share photos and messages with each other, sync personal fitness goals and provide games in a kid-friendly interface that parents can control and monitor. Then there’s AllShare Play which lets consumers access personal content no matter where they are or regardless of whether it is stored on a TV, tablet, camera, phone or PC.
In addition, select Samsung Smart TVs in 2012 allow consumers to enjoy new experiences as their TV is ‘reborn’ each year with the latest smart technology by installing a Smart Evolution kit. The kit slots into the back of the set and regularly updates the TVs with the latest software available from Samsung.
All of the 2012 TVs, from the ES5500 upwards, feature the Samsung ONE DESIGN, with the ES7000 and the ES8000 featuring an ultra-thin 5mm bezel, providing more viewing area without increasing the overall size of the TV.
Furthermore, both the ES8000 and ES7000 offer 2D and 3D viewing, while the ES7000’s Micro Dimming feature and the ES8000’s Micro Dimming Ultimate feature allow viewers, the manufacturer claims, to enjoy richer colours and higher contrast ratios.
