First Looks: Apps for Samsung LED TV ES7500 / ES8000

Samsung LED TV AppsOffering Full HD and 3-D support, the two new models also have Samsung´s proprietary Smart Interaction features and its Smart Content give users a fresh viewing experience. Unlike conventional TVs where users need to push the On button first, the ES7500 and ES8000 will switch on with voice commands like “Hi TV”, while other commands like “Web browser”, will allow users to access its built-in apps quickly. There are more ways to interact with the new models, via the Motion Control feature. Once it´s in its Smart Hub mode, users can start by raising a hand up. The built-in sensor will recognise that the user is initiating the Motion Control feature and pop up a cursor. Users can lead the cursor around the screen and by curling all fingers down, can “grab” a button to select it. Other gestures such as moving the hand anti-clockwise will trigger the TV to go back to the previous screen. Once users master the voice and motion controllers, there are more reasons to explore the Samsung Smart Hub. Over 1,000 apps are available for download from Samsung but the ones that come preloaded, such as Family Story, Fitness and Kids, make the ES7500 and ES8000 more exciting for the entire family. Family Story is for sharing photos and other files. Using the complementary Samsung Cloud Service, users can invite friends to join in and view the files. To share files from other devices, users need to download the Family Story app onto their devices. Some of the devices that support this service are the Samsung Galaxy S II and Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. Fitness is another cool app where the camera that comes built-in ES7500 and ES8000 will play its part to generate a virtual mirror on screen. The virtual mirror on the TV screen functions like the wall-to-wall mirror in a dance studio – users can quickly see if their movements are similar to the fitness trainer´s. Kids is the edutainment hub that delivers a variety of content that are both entertaining as well as informative. With the ES7500 and ES8000, there is a new service – Viki, where users can enjoy videos on demand, from popular Korean dramas to classic Hindustani movies.

Then there is Samsung AllShare Play, with which users can send pictures, movies and music from Samsung smartphones and tablets to the TV, thus enjoying the content on a bigger screen.
