Samsung Brings the Connected Experience to Ordinary HDTVs

Samsung Techwin America, a leader in consumer video monitoring and security products, today unveiled its inTouch camera system at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. Boasting Wi-Fi technology, 720p high-definition video and a range of pre-loaded apps and functionalities, including Skype(TM), YouTube and full Web browsing, the Samsung inTouch brings the internet connected experience straight to the living rooms of consumers with ordinary HDTVs.

“While internet connected HDTVs are now common, not every household gets to experience this fun and interactive feature, especially if they have an HDTV purchased just a few years ago,” said Mike Palazzolo, Vice President Sales and Marketing, consumer video monitoring and security products, Samsung Techwin America. “With the inTouch camera system, Samsung is now bridging the gap between this experience and those consumers who own HDTVs without networking capability.”

Simplicity and Elegance

Samsung is known and revered throughout the world for the industry-leading design of its consumer electronics devices, and its new inTouch camera system is no exception. The inTouch camera system offers an elegant and compact form factor that allows it to seamlessly blend in with the design of any home entertainment system or living room.

The inTouch camera can be securely placed on top of an HDTV, shelf or table, and thanks to a tilt range of -30 degrees ~ 0 degrees, users can easily adjust the camera so that everyone can be in the shot. The Samsung inTouch offers an effortless connection to a wireless network, and hooking up the camera to an HDTV requires just one HDMI cable.

Connect With Family and Friends

Plugged into Skype and with an embedded mic and speakers, Samsung’s inTouch camera system gives consumers the ability to connect with family and friends around the world in high-definition, right from the comfort of their own living rooms. Whether it is grandparents calling to check in on the kids from across the country, parents reading their children a story while away on a business trip, or a simple chat with a longtime friend, the possibilities are endless.

In addition to Skype, the Samsung inTouch camera system is also pre-loaded with a range of apps which instantly give any ordinary HDTV an internet connected makeover. Apps such as YouTube and Google News and Weather bring important information and entertainment right to the screen, and a Web browser allows consumers to fully access and enjoy all that the Internet has to offer. Navigation is also made easy with the inclusion of a palm-sized QWERTY keyboard which puts everything the consumer needs right at their fingertips and makes checking email or instant messaging with friends a breeze.

Capture and Share Memories

The Samsung inTouch camera also offers an easy-to-use photos app that essentially transforms an HDTV into a high-definition picture frame. Consumers can snap still images at three megapixel resolution, or insert their own using the integrated USB port, which can be reviewed in a gallery or enjoyed in a slideshow. Images can also be shared with friends and family by uploading directly from the inTouch to many of today’s popular social networking sites.

The Samsung inTouch will be available March 2012 and will retail for $199.99.
