Samsung HomeSync Protects and Streams Content that Matters Most
SEOUL, Korea - October, 10, 2013 - Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, a leader in mobile technology and digital solutions, today announced the availability of Samsung HomeSync, a home hub solution that has enough storage space to protect the whole family’s digital content, provides an immersive big screen TV entertainment experience, and delivers a whole new way of enjoying your HDTV through a familiar and smarter Android user experience.
“With HomeSync, you can spend less time worrying about backing up your precious moments, and more time creating them,” said JK Shin, CEO and Head of IT & Mobile Communication at Samsung Electronics. “Now, you can stream video from your Samsung GALAXY device to your TV or flip through photos on the big screen for your whole family to see. That time spent with family is more important than manually backing up content.”
Access Your Content Anywhere, Anytime
HomeSync provides 1 TB of private storage, which is enough room to upload 10 photos daily for 82 years, or five minutes of home video for 10 years. The device supports up to eight users with five devices each and a personal and private folder for each member. Using the Samsung Link app on a mobile device, users can access images, music, videos, documents and files from any registered device. Uploading to HomeSync is as simple as selecting an item, such as a photo, and tapping the HomeSync icon.
Stream Content from Mobile to TV
Play content such as mobile games, videos, music, or flip through photos on your home television using HomeSync’s Android Media Center. Mirror content from your GALAXY mobile device on your TV in full HD. Users will also be able to use their mobile device as a remote controller, and enjoy Android applications such as popular games, YouTube, even web browsers, on their TV screens. The device provides a fully immersive media center at home.
Samsung HomeSync is now available on the market globally, with initial retail in US.
