Samsung Electronics Australia announced today its newest line of Smart TVs that simplifies how consumers search for and discover preferred content  at the same time improve picture quality.

While different models may have varying features, majority of the products in the line- up will feature a redesigned Smart Hub that offers five dynamic menu titles to help consumers manage and navigate different types of content, improved picture quality, a quad-core CPU that enable quick app launching, web browsing and multi-tasking and Smart View that lets consumers move content seamlessly from TV to other connected devices.

However, the most promising and probably most practical features of these new TVs are its Samsung S-recommendation and Advanced Smart Integration features. Samsung’s Advanced Smart Interaction allows consumers to use everyday language and casual gestures to control the TV. This feature uses powerful algorithms to ensure accurate facial recognition, voice interaction and motion controls such as two-handed gestures, pinch to zoom or a swipe motion for navigation.

S-recommendation on the other hand uses Samsung’s recommendation engine to help consumers navigate available content. And the best thing about this feature is that it now recognises an Australian accent. Samsung Australia was one of six countries out of the global Samsung group to be selected to build its own local natural language S-recommendation feature.

To achieve this, Samsung invested over half a million dollars in RND efforts including sentence recordings of 12 voice artists to choose the right Aussie accent, use of recorded sentences with a text to speech engine and development of a system that can create words not stored in the database, using the construction of phomins to create natural sounding words.

Lastly, Samsung is throwing in a Smart Evolution Kit 2013 for high end TV sets (sold separately) where customers will be able to update their TVs with the latest technologies and features which ensures that their product remains up-to-date with future development standrads of ultra-high definition broadcasting for up to five years.
