Next-generation Smart cameras
In the digital imaging field, CES 2014 has seen the arrival of two new Samsung digital cameras.
One new camera to be showcased is the latest member of the award-winning NX series – the NX30 Camera.
In addition, Samsung also demonstrated its first ‘S’ Series premium lens, the 16-50mm F2-2.8 S ED OIS and a new compact Power Zoom lens, the 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 Power Zoom ED OIS.
And if one digital camera isn’t enough, photographers will be happy to know that Samsung also showed the world the Galaxy Camera 2, which follows its extremely popular predecessor.
Smarter living with a connected home
Last but by no means least, in a move that could change the home forever, Samsung announced a new Smart Home service that puts people in control of their devices and home appliances with one application that connects them all. With that single application on a Smart TV, digital camera, smartphone or wearable device like the Galaxy Gear, you can now manage home devices from washing machines to light bulbs to air conditioners, whether you’re at home or away on the road. You can even use voice commands - for instance just say “Going Out” to your Galaxy Gear and you can turn off the TV and the lights.
That’s all thanks to Device Control, just one service that Smart Home will offer, which lets you use mobile device or your Smart TV to monitor or control home devices. Another feature is Home View, which allows you to monitor your home remotely using your smartphone in real-time through built-in cameras on appliances.The Smart Home service also gives you Smart Customer Service. That allows you to receive service alerts and assistance in servicing your home appliances, taking all the hassle out of after-sales care.
