Samsung have announced plans to expand their Blu-ray and companion box lineup.
Unveiled at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the company showed off its new Blu-ray player and companion box, which enables Google TV. The launch comes as part of Samsung’s ongoing smart TV offering, aiming to enhance television viewing for the masses through High Definition, 3D and now Blu-ray features.
The new launch means consumers can surf the internet on their Blu-ray TV as they would on their computer, whether it be to update their social networks, to stream videos, or check emails. Those who purchase the new Blu-ray player and companion box will also be provided with a Google TV remote control, a full QWERTY keypad and voice search enabled through an internal microphone in the control.
These new devices are expected to be available to purchase by mid 2011.
TV Enhancements from Samsung
The technology market has seen a mass of Samsung gadgets emerge recently, from the recent launch of the Samsung Galaxy Tab, to the new Xfinity TV service as part of their Smart TV initiative. The Xfinity TV service takes television viewing to the next level, enabling those watching TV to access content via the internet at the same time.
Your Samsung gadgets can also be linked, so if you have started watching a film on your television you can pause it to then recommence on your Samsung Galaxy Tab while on the go.
Samsung Smart TVs are specifically designed to make this transformation from TV viewing to internet surfing as seamless as possible, with users also able to download the thousands of applications available to Samsung users. These apps, typically used on tabs and smartphones, can be used on these new TVs, and some are specifically built so users can connect to their favourite digital content.
