Samsung Focuses on Motion, Voice Controls in New TVs26 Dec, 2013 By: Chris Tribbey
Samsung Electronics will showcase new motion and voice controls for its 2014 line-up of smart TVs Jan. 7-10 at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the consumer electronics company announced.
The voice search feature — which will be available on Samsung TVs in 23 countries in 2014 — allows users to search for video content to find weather, stocks and sports while watching TV, via a pop-up window. The motion control feature allows users to adjust the volume and change channels, using a single finger.
“Samsung’s 2014 Smart TV models deliver significantly improved voice interaction and motion control features so that our consumers will be able to enjoy our Smart TV more intuitively,” said Kyungshik Lee, SVP of Samsung’s service strategy team. “We will continue to develop content that integrates voice and motion recognition for added convenience.”
