- PRESS RELEASE
Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. announced that it will be releasing the Smart TV SDK (Software Development Kit) 4.0 at the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) from January 8-11, 2013. The Smart TV SDK will allow Smart TV software development on Linux and Mac, in addition to Windows O/S.
Samsung is the first in the TV industry to provide a local cloud development environment. This environment enables the development of content based on connection between web services by utilizing an open API (Application Programming Interface).
Moreover, Smart TV SDK 4.0 provides a local cloud development environment that allows developers who use the Mac O/S to team up with other developers who use Windows O/S. As a result, many developers can engage in a team effort, resulting in greater software development efficiency and reduced costs. By expanding and supporting HTML5 in the Smart TV SDK 4.0, a standard programming language, Samsung has laid the foundation for many software developers to easily take part in development of Smart TV applications. With HTML5, Samsung has been able to build an integrated environment that supports the development of convergence applications. This enables Samsung's Smart TVs to interact and communicate with external devices. And to promote the active development of Smart TV software through Samsung's Smart Interaction function, the company strengthened the voice and gesture recognition functions on its Smart TVs.
"Samsung have been making continued efforts to build an ecosystem where software developers all across the globe can more easily develop Smart TV software using their creative ideas. The creative ideas of developers and innovative features of Samsung Smart TVs will come together to offer optimal Smart TV experiences to customers." said Hyogun Lee, senior vice president, Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics.
