Recommended Posts

In this installment, Samsung Newsroom introduces how to enjoy home gaming with the Samsung Gaming Hub. The Samsung Gaming Hub provides fun gaming experiences for all types of gamers, from aspiring gamers who have to buy new gear to play games when starting out to avid gamers who want to play all sorts of games, including console games and downloadable games.

 

According to a report from the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) in 2021, there are an estimated 214 million gamers in the U.S. alone, with 75 percent of households having at least one person who plays games. As a result, during the pandemic, gaming became a fun group activity, particularly for those looking to connect with others.

 

As home gaming continues to become a more popular form of home entertainment, Samsung Electronics is providing new gaming experiences to consumers. Samsung Newsroom introduces the way users can enjoy a more realistic, immersive home gaming experience with Samsung Smart TVs.

 

 

Take the First Step Towards Unfettered Home Gaming With Samsung Gaming Hub

The biggest hurdle for many who wish to start at-home gaming is the cost and inconvenience of buying and setting up gaming equipment. Many consoles carry console-exclusive game titles that are only available on one platform. In order to play different games, users have to buy multiple different consoles.

 

PC games come with a set of obstacles as well. Gamers need to have all the necessary accessories and computer parts, such as a CPU, graphics card and monitor, in order to have a smooth gaming experience. Furthermore, gamers who purchase downloadable games need to ensure they have ample storage space available for the new games to be installed, causing them to delete older games to clear up space on their PC.

 

Now, gamers can have a complete home gaming experience with Samsung Gaming Hub without having to worry about hardware requirements.

No gaming PC, console or additional gaming gear is needed; all you need is a controller to enjoy gaming on a Samsung Smart TV. Moreover, users don’t need to worry about storage space for their games either. Just like watching a TV series or a movie on a streaming platform, all you need to do to start playing is simply select a game title.

 

On Samsung Gaming Hub, users can access games from various industry-leading partners, including NVIDIA GeForce Now, Google Stadia and Utomik. Additionally, Gaming Hub supports Xbox Game Pass, making it the world’s first Smart TV platform to include the Xbox app. Through this partnership, Samsung Gaming Hub users are now able to stream hundreds of high-quality games including blockbuster titles. Moreover, they can play new games on day one of release from Xbox Games Studios and enjoy iconic franchise games from Bethesda Softworks and more, all without having to buy a console.

 

Users can also continue playing a game on their tablet or smartphone after they have begun playing it on a Smart TV. By logging in using a cloud service, all saved files from a TV, tablet or smartphone are linked together. This allows users to cross-play games from anywhere in their home regardless of which device they use.1

 

 

From Taking an Online Trip to Learning How To Code: A Customized Home Gaming Experience

While winning games is fun, the act of playing a game itself can also be enjoyable. In addition to its collection of popular games, Samsung Gaming Hub offers educational games that are both entertaining and visually captivating.

For those who want to take a spontaneous trip somewhere, take a trip to anywhere in the world with Flight Simulator. Flight Simulator is a pilot simulation game that has been loved by many since it was launched in 1982. The game presents users with realistic visuals and detailed background scenery, such as sunsets and city lights. The game also gives users an extremely realistic flying experience, similar to actually flying a plane.

For families that enjoy playing games with their kids, keep the fun going with Minecraft. Minecraft is a game in which players freely create their own spaces through mining, farming and hunting in a world made of square blocks. Minecraft: Education Edition is used in classrooms around the world to teach a wide range of subjects including the basics of programming, such as coding and design. With an in-game tutorial, many walkthroughs and online guides available, those who aren’t familiar with playing games can easily learn to play Minecraft. For more family fun, the action-adventure game Minecraft Dungeons enables players to brave the dungeons alone or join up to three other players to battle monsters together and gather treasure in an epic quest.

Your Own Playground Made Complete With Samsung Neo QLED

One of the most important pieces of equipment for home gaming is the display. The display not only affects how immersive a game is but also the outcome of the game as well.

 

The Samsung Neo QLED presents the world inside a game with the best picture quality. With 100% color volume and improved, detailed black levels, users can appreciate the beautiful high-resolution graphics and find out where enemies are hiding in the dark.

The Neo QLED is equipped with various features that make gaming even more exciting. Specifically, it comes with Motion Xcelerator Turbo Pro technology, which provides crisp gameplay motion in 4K resolution at 144Hz, and FreeSync Premium Pro, which minimizes input latency, lag and stutter on screen. Thanks to these features, gamers can play CPU-intensive games smoothly and enjoy vivid, life-like graphics. From first-person shooter (FPS) games that require fast response times to racing games with fast switches between different screens, the Neo QLED gives gamers an upgraded and immersive gaming experience across all genres.

The Neo QLED also provides enhanced display aspect ratios of 21:9 and 32:9, allowing gamers to play on a larger screen rather than on gaming monitors only. The Neo QLED is the first of its kind in the industry to offer Ultrawide GameView. Ultrawide GameView captures game angles that weren’t available with a display aspect ratio of 16:9, allowing users to play games without any blind spots on screen. The Neo QLED also supports Multi View, a feature that allows users to play two different videos simultaneously. With Multi View, users can play a game while referring to a walkthrough at the same time.

 

Enjoy an upgraded sound experience with the Neo QLED. The Neo QLED comes with Moving Sound Pro+ (OTS Pro+) technology, technology that matches the direction and movement of an object within a video to the sound. By creating multi-dimensional sound, users feel as if they are inside the game itself.

 

Home entertainment is loved by many because it is the most convenient way to enjoy fun activities from the comfort of one’s home. The next era of home gaming has begun, an era where anyone can play video games as easily as they can watch TV from their homes. A Samsung Smart TV is all that’s needed to enjoy playing games comfortably. Jump into the immersive world of home gaming with Samsung Smart TVs.

 

 

Requires Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription. Different for each game.

      Samsung Electronics, the world’s leading TV manufacturer for 18 consecutive years, has commenced its annual series of Tech Seminars in Frankfurt, Germany. From February 20 to 22, Samsung will showcase its newest display lineup for 2024 that features new, innovative AI technology and smart features on the Neo QLED, OLED and Lifestyle products to professionals in Europe.
       
      Tech Seminar sessions are a longstanding program, having delivered detailed information and exclusive hands-on experiences with new products for the past 13 years. As part of Samsung’s visual display vision — “We look out of the box to inspire new ways of life” — this year the company is displaying select, cutting-edge technologies from its 2024 lineup that offer new lifestyles and new ways of consuming content.
       
      The 2024 European Tech Seminar in Frankfurt sets the stage for similar sessions in major regions worldwide later this year, including Southeast Asia and Latin America. At these events, Samsung will feature new technologies that span across the latest TVs and lifestyle product lineup:
       
      Samsung’s 75-inch Neo QLED 8K QN900D incorporates the new and powerful NQ8 AI Gen3 Processor, which supports features like 8K AI Upscaling Pro and AI Motion Enhancer Pro for the best Neo QLED 8K visuals to date. The 2024 Tizen OS brings content front and center, offering a personalized experience based on different accounts set up on smart TVs. Tizen features services such as Samsung Gaming Hub, an all-in-one game streaming discovery platform, with content recommendations for a convenient and tailored cloud gaming experience. Music Frame is a customizable wireless speaker designed to seamlessly blend into its surroundings. It can operate as a standalone speaker, or it can pair with a Samsung TV and soundbar via Q-Symphony to deliver a more immersive viewing experience with surround sound. New OLED Glare Free technology was specifically designed for Samsung’s 2024 OLED screens and preserves color accuracy and image sharpness while reducing reflections from nearby lighting. The new, specialized hard-coating layer and surface coating pattern overcomes the trade-off between gloss and reflection.  
      ▲ Martin Kim, Picture Quality Solution Lab at Samsung Electronics, explains that the 2024 Neo QLED 8K incorporates the new and powerful NQ8 AI Gen3 Processor, supporting AI-backed features such as 8K AI Upscaling Pro and AI Motion Enhancer Pro.

      “Kicking off our Tech Seminar series is always something we look forward to,” said Yong-Jae Kim, Executive Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “Each year we have the opportunity to meet with local media and professionals, not just to provide in-depth demonstrations and explanations on new technology, but also to discuss the products we are most excited about and hear their feedback.”

      Samsung Electronics has once again demonstrated its dominance in the global TV market, marking an unprecedented 18-year streak at the forefront of the industry.
       
      Market research firm Omdia reported that Samsung has achieved a 30.1% share of the global TV market in 2023, reinforcing its status as the industry leader since 2006. This success is largely due to the company’s strategic focus on premium and large-screen TV categories, driven by its cutting-edge QLED and OLED models.
       
      Since its launch in 2017, Samsung’s QLED TV lineup, including the latest Neo QLED models, has surpassed cumulative sales of 40 million units. In 2023 alone, the QLED lineup achieved sales of 8.31million units.
       
      ▲ Samsung is ranked No. 1 global TV brand for 18th consecutive year
       
      Samsung asserted notable leadership in the premium TV sector – specifically for TVs over 75 inches and priced above $2,500. The company has recorded an impressive 60.5% market share in terms of sales for TVs priced over $2,500, while also maintaining a lead with 33.9% sales share for TVs over 75 inches. In addition, thanks to robust sales of 98-inch models, TVs over the 90 inches have maintained the lead with a 30.4% market share.
       
      Building on its success in the ultra-large and high-end TV market, Samsung has also made significant strides in the OLED sector. The company’s OLED TV lineup recorded 1.01 million units sold in 2023, capturing a market share of 22.7%. With the expanded OLED lineup in 2024, Samsung’s market share in the OLED sector is projected to surge in 2024.
       
      “We are proud to be recognized as the market leader in the global TV sector for 18 consecutive years, a testament to the enduring trust and loyalty our customers place in Samsung,” stated SW Yong, President and Head of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “We are deeply committed to advancing the industry, moving beyond exceptional picture quality to offer more meaningful and valuable experiences.”
       
      At CES 2024, Samsung Electronics unveiled the groundbreaking NQ8 AI Gen3 processor, heralding the start of the AI Screen Era. The advancement in state-of-the-art chipsets and capabilities is set to redefine the smart TV domain, integrating sophisticated AI powered by Tizen OS to establish AI screens as center of the smart home innovation.
       
      2024 is shaping up to be another year of significant innovation for Samsung. With advancements in processors and cutting-edge AI features, Samsung is on course to further transform home entertainment and set new benchmarks in the TV industry.

      An app that I would like to download and use (CAIWAY WebTV) is only supported by Tizen OS 5.0, but my Samsung TV is running on Tizen 4.0, so the app cannot be found. I updated the TV software to the latest version, but this does not update the Tizen OS itself. Is there a way to update the Tizen OS itself?

      As to play the youtube video we need to use the youtube iframe, we are facing challenge here. When the youtube video plays on the TV, we lose control over app and hence next video as per CMS does not play. Same happens vice versa i.e when a video from CMS starts playing we are not able to play youtube video if it is next in the list.
