Samsung choose smart TV experience

Samsung has turned on its Smart TV experience with “A remote controls and an improved voice recognition feature that allows you to lean features more skillful use to the consumer,” said the development team.

Making TV series “smart” is one thing, but too narrow to use them and their full potential is another. Smart TVs have come a long way since Samsung’s first as “Connected TV” back in 2009. In 2011, Samsung was the first with the term “Smart TV” that the computer and the integrated Internet converged a conventional TV set Top boxes.

TVs remain the primary port for simple content consumption in the home, despite the fact that it is no longer due to the compatibility of computers is a monopoly, tablets, and smartphones for content. Unnecessary features and other features that overlap with other selected devices disappear introductions in earlier and television the best device to the content. But thanks to Internet access and the variety and availability of content, smart TVs more complicated. The biggest obstacle in the use of Smart TV Smart fell on their menus easier to navigate. To cope with this, Samsung has a far past year as a cure-it-all way. For the 2017 version, it made the remote control easier, with a home button that provides all the features, an accompanying TV user interface (UI), and a power-upped voice command that the company says will allow the consumer to make their smart TV to manage to develop their full potential. A remote control them and ONE screen UI With the introduction of a remote control, the Smart Hub 2.0 UI changed the easy to customize, down, left, right menu interface. “It took two years of negotiations with content vendors to enter into agreements about the concept we had in mind,” said minsup Kim, product manager for QLED TV and a remote control of Samsung’s visual display unit (VD) division, in an interview on Samsung’s headquarters In Suwon, south of Seoul. “For example, content providers can ask how their logos are exposed to the screen with different logo.” “On the technical side, as set-top vendors have their own protocol, they understand [is] always a challenge.” We use our global network to negotiate with content providers, while without regional offices for information national-level salespeople Increase, “said Kim.

The concept of a remote control and a matching user interface, all show content back in 2011. It began in the middle of 2015, before the launch of the first version of Universal Remote in 2016. “A Home button all icons in one Screen with seamless management as a service, we believe is a big step forward and a great hurdle for consumers [is] to navigate Bulletin or App style menus, I believe he has to overcome what is a Is innovation in the service ” Jiyoung Song, the smart view, the Smartphone Smart Hub 2.0 development control, said that it is a very back-end work that takes them a long time. Smart Hub 2.0 now read the set-top immediately connected to the HDMI 1, 2, 3 and 4 as addictive and method it seems to have access to content on the screen. “We can confidently say that we cover more than 90 percent of existing set-up boxes, and we have been able to deliver the content at a global level,” he said. The One remote is located in an UI in SmartView. Smart voice can be used in smart view like the control. SmartView was previously fragmented; Different versions of programs required for different year models. But the latest SmartView handles all UIs of TVs made after 2011.

Direct to content with voice command Samsung believes voice command – its smart voice – is the best addition to its one remote and will allow consumers to navigate through the menus cutting the content they want to reach directly. There are more and more features on a TV, including VOD, live streaming, programs and internet connection. This is where voice recognition comes, according to Jihye Chung, responsible for the smart voice engine. The microphone in the remote control is activated by pressing the Voice key. “Our goal for this vote of the year has been put into operation, it covers all the features of TV that this is the case, and reduce the” depth “of the process,” Chung said. “Our 2017 smart voice this year allows you to cut through the process and go to the content you want directly.” Research in 2015 by Samsung Consumer Experience Lab or CX Lab, located in Silicon Valley and UX group in Seoul R & D campus found that there was a rising trend of active use of voice command. It was also noted that, in the first place, consumers did not know that many of the functions that their remote control had made easier, and second, they did not know what to say as a voice command. “Old habits die Our research shows that older voice command rarely uses Another consistent complaint – .. What I think will always be there – is that they want to know that their television should tell them,” Chung said.With its huge database, which is to be expanded even further in the future, improve the recognition ability of smart voice. There is now a manual that explains how to use the function. As a model last year by Smart Voice consumers, they can want to say the channel go directly through the number or the name of the channel. This year’s model allows the consumer to display a genre, then related to TV shows. Surfing by decoders can also be done by voice. “You can say the number of volume controls, said Julia Young Joo Lee, product manager for smart voice.” You can look at the environmental menu directly, run modes and context commands, such as charts, say, turn off the TV in 3 hours. ” If the consumer wants more choice, they are more intuitive assignments, such as “show me sports channel,” and TV will show all relevant channels for the consumer’s order to say, she said. “If there is a function that is actually more convenient with voice command but the user is trying to use the control button, the TV show will be available at the bottom of the screen a simple voting statement,” she says.


Personal voice commands is a possibility for the future, according to DK Bae, who is responsible for smart voice applications. This will allow the remote control or TV to identify the speakers and institutions, to set the scope navigation or limit how to prevent children from reaching youth-free content. “Personalization must sign, but by voice, you can find the speaker that is technically not so difficult,” Bae said. “There are some hurdles to how well the language recognition read, whether the assignment itself, but we need to recognize different voices, is not so difficult.We prepare and send them into life as a service later, but not this year.” Samsung is open to a new technology of artificial intelligence and machine learning, but there is a need for greater and deeper research on how people use voice commands. “Our research has shown that different people use the same word for different meanings.Someone could say a famous person for a shopping site [to see] with the person’s name.Someone else might be looking for the program, That he or she, “Chung said. Recently leaked documents from Wikileaks says CIA and MI5 tested whether they can be installed on the Samsung Smart TVs from malware via USB. The targeted models were the 2012 and 2013 and physically connected USBs are the malicious software needed to install. Patches have been replaced by the hacker methods described in the analysis, the development team said. Samsung also removes the camera and the microphone from their televisions since last year. The decision to use the microphone as a press-to-command on the remote control was strictly out of convenience, the development team said.
