Samsung’s Remote Access is a new feature for 2019 that’ll enable enhanced wireless connectivity between the brand’s Smart TVs and devices such as PCs, tablets and smartphones.
Samsung’s Remote Access functionality will allow consumers to remotely access compatible programmes and apps via their Samsung Smart TV. Available on new 2019 Smart TVs, Samsung’s enhanced wireless connectivity means input devices such as keyboards can be connected to the Smart TV making user control more streamlined and simpler.
There’s no need for a separate HDMI cable connection as users can, for example, remotely access a PC in their room through the TV in their living room. Access devices through the connected keyboard and mouse via the Smart TV and display them on the TV’s screen or make use of the web browser-based cloud office service to access files or work on documents.
“Samsung is committed to creating an intuitive and convenient user experience for consumers,” said Hyogun Lee, Executive Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics, adding that with Remote Access, Samsung consumers will have easy access to a variety of connected technology and software. Lee says Samsung is determined to develop the functionality further by partnering with suppliers to expand the service.
Thanks to VMware Horizon, Remote Access can be used anywhere in the world. “Samsung and VMware share a passion for helping workers to be as productive as possible,” explained Shankar Iyer, Senior Vice President and General Manager, End User Computing at VMware. “We continue to expand our partnership, so that those working remotely will have a seamless experience as they access virtual desktops, applications, and online services from their favourite Samsung devices – including a Samsung Smart TV.”
