Deep Linking

Recommended Posts

We want our app to deep link into Netflix, so that we can select a few of our favorite shows, showcase them, and have those shows launch directly when the user clicks on the links in our app. I see the documentation that shows how to launch another app. The problem is that one of the parameters is PAYLOAD, which is data in an unspecified format. Can anybody help me with the format of the PAYLOAD data? A code sample that does deep linking would be very helpful.

      The world of videography and filmmaking is constantly evolving, with new technologies pushing the boundaries of what’s possible. The latest of these technologies is 8K resolution video which offers a new level of detail and clarity that was previously unimaginable. With 8K, filmmakers and videographers can capture images — both above and below sea level — in incredible precision and realism, giving TV viewers a truly immersive viewing experience.
      ▲ Pawel Achtel is a world-renowned professional in underwater cinematography with a career spanning over 35 years and more than 5,000 dives ranging from the equator to Antarctica
      Meet Pawel Achtel, a world-renowned professional in underwater cinematography with a career spanning over 35 years and more than 5,000 dives ranging from the equator to Antarctica. The filmmaker’s extensive diving experience informs his cinematographic work — which has captured the attention of industry leaders such as National Geographic, BBC and Discovery — providing a unique perspective on life underwater and highlighting his expertise in designing and producing advanced cinematography equipment. He was also involved in capturing 8K resolution underwater sequences for “Avatar: The Way of Water.”
      Samsung Newsroom sat down with Pawel Achtel to dive into the details of underwater cinematography and explore how Samsung’s Neo QLED 8K lineup is reshaping the landscape for filmmakers and viewers at home.

      How 8K Technology Transforms Underwater Filmmaking
      In fields like underwater cinematography, where visuals matter most, Samsung’s Neo QLED 8K is indispensable. Not only does it help viewers feel immersed in the scene, but it is also vital for filmmakers to assess underwater footage.
      ▲ Underwater cinematographers face a plethora of challenges including ocean currents and light refraction that make optical environments drastically different from on-the-ground filming. But Achtel focuses on the “breathtaking results” that come once the obstacles are overcome (video source: link)
      Due to variables like ocean currents and light refraction, filming underwater in true 8K quality can be difficult. “But, when all the circumstances line up, the results are breathtaking,” shared Achtel.
      While advanced technologies like submersible lenses assist in capturing these shots, Neo QLED 8K — known for its high resolution and clarity — allows filmmakers like Achtel to closely examine even the smallest details of underwater scenes. This close look helps improve sharpness and other aspects of image quality after filming, overcoming the challenges of underwater optics.
      ▲ Samsung’s Neo QLED 8K helps cinematographers closely examine details and improve picture quality
      “The underwater world is elusive — and filmmakers have a rare opportunity to allow people to see it in great detail, in a way people may not see elsewhere,” said Achtel. “It makes these shots interesting and captivating as they reveal an environment completely foreign to us in stunning detail.”
      Samsung made waves at CES 2024 by introducing the latest Neo QLED 8K with the new NQ8 AI Gen3 processor, delivering a cinematic experience at home. Impressed by its features, the filmmaker called the TV “a transformative advancement.”
      He specifically praised features like 8K AI Upscaling Pro and AI Motion Enhancer Pro,1 available on select Neo QLED 8K models, highlighting Samsung’s commitment to outstanding visuals. “Having witnessed the advanced features at CES 2024, I can confidently say they enhance realism and immersion,” added Achtel.
      ▲ AI Upscaling on compatible Samsung TVs helps enhance resolution to enjoy on larger screens; the 8K AI Upscaling Pro that leverages the new NQ8 AI Gen3 processor on 2024 Samsung Neo QLED 8K models take this technology to a whole new level
      However, for this underwater cinematographer, the true power of 8K lies in the seamless integration of production and viewing technologies — charting a new course in content creation and consumption.
      Diving Deep Into 8K Home Cinema
      As the development and adoption of 8K filming equipment continues to grow, it’s also driving the creation of content that fully embraces the potential of 8K resolution. The unparalleled realism and captivating qualities of 8K make it an essential tool for storytelling, especially for content that demands a powerful visual impact.
      Take underwater footage, for example, which is often played at a slower pace — giving audiences the time to absorb unfamiliar environments and take in details that might otherwise go unnoticed.
      ▲ Various factors including currents, light refraction present challenges to capturing clear, beautiful shots underwater
      On the Neo QLED 8K, viewers can appreciate the “impressive color accuracy” and “nuanced portrayal of detailed scenes” of the ocean’s depths. From the calming blue water to the vivid and bright hues of fish and coral reefs, Achtel attributes the appeal of his 8K underwater imagery to the variety of striking colors and patterns. With Neo QLED 8K, the benefits now extend beyond just the content itself.
      “On the viewing side, Neo QLED 8K plays a pivotal role in bringing the 8K ecosystem to life,” he explained. “It not only showcases content with remarkable clarity but also upscales lower-resolution footage to nearly 8K quality, ensuring an immersive viewing experience of the highest caliber.”
      Given its advanced picture quality powered by increased neural networks and cutting-edge AI upscaling features, Neo QLED 8K elevates the viewing experience — even with content not initially captured in 8K. Combining advanced image quality with larger screen sizes also opens new possibilities for home viewing to offer an experience that rivals that of traditional big-screen setups.
      In the ever-evolving landscape of visual storytelling, enhancing a TV’s ability to process non-8K content offers significant benefits and inspires filmmakers to strive for higher quality content.
      “At the end of the day, having a device with an enhanced visual experience and immersive capabilities empowers cinematographers to craft and evaluate captivating content that resonates deeply with viewers,” said Achtel.
       ▲ AI Motion Enhancer Pro helps make 8K viewing experiences even smoother, not only for underwater scenes but also footages with fast-paced action like artists dancing on stage or sporting events
      The role of 8K technology in underwater cinematography and home entertainment underscores its transformative potential to enhance visual storytelling and enrich the viewing experience for audiences around the world.

      In the first season, the beautiful setting and quintessentially Parisian characters gave viewers an insight into French style and culture and are some of the driving forces behind the show’s success. This sense of escapism was created and elevated by the global cast, including the iconic character of Sylvie Grateau. Played by Samsung ambassador Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu, Sylvie acts as lead protagonist Emily’s boss, and the CMO of luxury marketing agency Savoir. Sylvie’s character embodies true stylish authority; great at her job, powerful, commanding and effortlessly chic, she became one of the most widely recognized and loved characters from the show’s debut season.

      August 13, 2017 - Written By Dominik Bosnjak https://www.androidheadlines.com/2017/08/steam-link-streaming-app-now-available-on-samsungs-tizen-tvs.html   The Steam Link streaming app is now available for download on a range of Samsung Electronics-made smart TVs powered by the company’s Tizen operating system, Valve confirmed earlier this week. The gaming platform has been in testing for over a month and was developed by Valve with some support from the Seoul-based tech giant. The limited beta period ended a few days back and the Steam Link app appeared on the Smart Hub store shortly after, where it’s now available for download on compatible TVs in all parts of the world. The app is completely free to install and use and comes with no ads, save for Valve’s own daily promotions that show every time you start Steam on any platform.
      Only Samsung’s 2016 and 2017 smart TV lineups are supported by Steam Link and older models are unlikely to ever be compatible with the service. Likewise, the app is currently relatively limited in terms of physical controller support, though a number of popular gamepads already work with it, including both variants of the Xbox 360 controller, the wired version of the Xbox One gamepad, Logitech F710 and F510, and the Steam Controller. Valve will likely debut support for more controllers in the future, though the company has yet to provide any details on the matter. While the Tizen port of the Steam Link app doesn’t ship with any particular software requirements, users are advised to download the latest version of Tizen for their smart TVs prior to using the tool or they may experience technical issues including frame rate drops and white screens.
      Upon first launching the app, Steam Link will test your local Wi-Fi speed and recommend a wired connection in case your network is too slow. While it doesn’t clarify on the matter, it seems that a 150Mbps / 30Mbps connection is more than enough for the streaming to work properly, provided that you aren’t trying to cast anything over 1080p. Note that playing fast-paced games like shooters and beat-em-ups is still difficult to enjoy over a wireless connection as the occasional input lag is an issue in this current version of the app, though Samsung and Valve may be able to improve the overall performance of the service in the future. Refer to the gallery below to see how Steam Link for Samsung’s Tizen-powered smart TVs looks in action.
