Samsung Complements its SMART TV Range with New Accessories

Samsung Complements its SMART TV Range with New Accessories

Stylish Light-Weight 3D Glasses, High-Definition TV Camera and More

Auckland, New Zealand – April 13, 2011 –

Samsung New Zealand today unveiled a new range of TV accessories, bringing additional features and functionality to its new SMART TV range. The accessory line features an array of breakthrough technologies including light-weight 3D active glasses, a Wireless Router, a QWERTY remote control and a Skype™-certified high-definition (HD) TV camera that transforms televisions into large screen video phones.

Light-weight, prescription-ready 3D active glasses
Weighing in at just 29 grams, Samsung, together with eyewear designer Silhouette, have developed the world’s lightest 3D active glasses – the SSG-3500. These glasses have a redesigned component layout and use lighter material, plus they feature Bluetooth technology for a more reliable connection to the TV. Samsung also cut the LCD response time to improve the contrast ratio. The net result is a brighter 3D picture, compared with older Samsung products and improved viewing comfort.

In addition, viewers who wear glasses can order special prescription lenses that attach to the 3D glasses, therefore enjoying 3D TV with only one pair of glasses. For those who prefer to wear their own glasses, Samsung has incorporated a new temple design that connects to the top of the wearer’s glasses frame for a more comfortable experience. The frame and temples are made of a flexible material allowing the glasses to accommodate different head sizes. The 3D glasses also have an adjustable, removable nose pad and balanced weight distribution to maximize comfort.

In addition to the premium 3D glasses, Samsung is also introducing three other new models – one entry level model and two lightweight step-up models in two different sizes to suit all head shapes.

Samsung Entry SSG-3100GB Battery-type 3D Glasses – RRP $149.95
Samsung Step-Up SSG-3300GR Rechargeable 3D Glasses – RRP $229.95
Samsung Premium SSG-3500CR Rechargeable 3D Glasses – RRP $299.95

Wireless router with One Foot connection
To make connecting to a wireless network seamless and easy, Samsung is also offering a Wireless Router that features One Foot Connection (OFC). During the initial set-up, users simply need to put the router within one foot of these devices to establish a connection. Once connection is established the devices can then subsequently be moved to any part of the home while still maintaining this connection to share content.

Skype™-Certified high definition TV camera
Samsung’s new Skype-certified TV camera transforms Samsung TVs into large-screen, living room videophones. The TV camera, which enables video calls on a Samsung TV without a headset or webcam, features a built-in HD sensor (720p at 30 fps), auto focus to keep the subject in focus even when shifting positions, four high-fidelity microphones to capture voice at up to four metres away with ambient noise, and advanced HD video encoding.

Installing the Samsung TV camera is easy. Users simply plug the USB cable into the TV and attach the camera to the back of the TV using the magnets. At only 1.3cm wide, the camera’s slim design helps it blend in with even the thinnest Samsung TV. A flexible camera neck wraps around the top of the TV, allowing the user to adjust the lens position and identify the perfect shooting angle.

QWERTY TV remote control
Samsung’s new QWERTY TV remote offers users the best of both worlds. On one side are the traditional buttons found on a Samsung TV remote control. On the reverse is a full QWERTY keyboard for easy text input and navigation when using a Samsung SMART TV. This comfortable design allows users to enter in website addresses, Tweet and use Facebook on their TV and search for the content they want through Smart Hub and Samsung Apps.
