Some Samsung Smart TV models will have HD cameras, a pair of noise-cancelling microphones and face recognition software built in to enable voice and gesture control. In external control devices, the company’s Smart Touch Remote Control is being introduced. It features a touchpad for easy app selection, edge-mounted controls for single-finger access, a built-in mic, and universal remote control capabilities. The company is also offering a new QWERTY key-based remote called the Smart Wireless Keyboard that is also compatible with its Galaxy Tab 2 tablet.
The company’s commitment to 3D technology was “never stronger” than now, said Stinziano, and more than half of its TV SKUs are 3D-enabled; two pairs of glasses are included with each and four pairs, with each top-tier TV model.
In other categories, Samsung introduced a Disc to Digital feature on select 2012 Blu-ray players that allows users to access movie content on devices other than the player itself, any place. The company also brought out its first audio docking systems; one, the Model DA-E670, is the industry’s first such product to be compatible with both Galaxy S and Apple iOS devices.
