Samsung showcases Smart TVs at Gadget Show Live

Samsung has used the Gadget Show Live to showcase its latest innovations in home entertainment – the ES7000 and the ES8000.

The Gadget Show Live was held at Birmingham NEC last week, and saw hundreds of exhibitors and thousands of tech lovers attend.

Now in its fourth year, the Gadget Show Live had its biggest year this year. Everyone from start up tech companies to huge tech giants descended on the NEC to show off their latest products.

Samsung was one of the biggest companies at the event, competing with the likes of Sony and Epson to draw the biggest numbers to its stall.

The South Korean tech powerhouse had a number of products on display at the event, including a number of Galaxy tablets and the impressive Galaxy Note – the innovative ‘phablet’ that has proved a hit with users the world over.

Samsung Smart TVs

But the most impressive pieces of kit at the Samsung stall were the Smart TVs – the Samsung ES7000 and ES8000.

We got an exclusive interview with Stephen Mitchell, head of product marketing at Samsung, and found out what is so special about this new range of Samsung TVs.

“We focus on the smart technology in these products, we’ve got fantastic smart content – the broadest range of content on a Smart TV, as well as Samsung’s signature services like fitness story [and] kids story,” he said.

“We’ve also smart evolution as well. These TVs come with an evolution slot on the back, so in 2013 we’ll be releasing an upgrade. We can’t guarantee what will be upgraded but probably picture quality [and] processor speed, so you can buy with confidence of future proofing.”

Another key feature of the ES7000 and ES8000 is the smart interaction, a Kinect-style software that offers users a different way to navigate through the TV.

“For the first time we’ve got a range of TVs which have got a camera built in as well as a microphone, so you can actually use voice and gesture to control the core features of the television,” added Stephen Mitchell.
