Samsung Partners With Netflix To Bring Iconic Style and Innovative Technology to the Second Season of Emily in ParisBy STF News
Samsung Electronics today announced the latest development in its ongoing partnership with streaming giant, Netflix, to herald the release of the second season of its hit-show, Emily in Paris, produced by MTV Entertainment Studios. The Emmy-nominated show, renowned for its 21st century celebration of iconic Parisian style, has collaborated with Samsung to showcase world-class premium technology to fans of the series.
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. In season two, to make sure she keeps on top of her personal and professional life, Sylvie has chosen the stylish and snappy Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G to keep Emily and the rest of the agency on their toes.
But Sylvie is not the only one to benefit from the style and glamour of the Galaxy Z Flip 5G. To launch the second season, Samsung and Netflix will bring iconic style and innovative technology to fans of Emily in Paris through an integrated campaign; featuring offline ads, social and influencer content, and a TikTok filter that provides a new way for fans to enjoy the show, through the lens of the iconic Galaxy Z Flip 5G. The filter will allow fans to “flip the script” and become the lead character in their own Emily in Paris animated poster. The stunning Galaxy Z Flip 5G will unfold in front of the user, putting them front and center before the iconic Eiffel Tower. TikTok users* can try out the Flip the Script TikTok Effect on the platform as of 28th of December.
Benjamin Braun, Samsung CMO for Europe, said, “At Samsung, we are always at the forefront of creativity and innovation. We are excited to partner with Netflix for the second season of one of their biggest shows, Emily in Paris, and to see Sylvie wielding the iconic Galaxy Z Flip 5G fits the personality of the device perfectly. We’re looking forward to developing this partnership further and deeper in the future.”

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.
