Samsung CES 2012 Press Conference

I LOVED the Samsung CES 2012 press conference. It got me really excited about all their new products (and sad that I can not see them in person) Because it was such a spectacular s show and it’s on YouTube, so I’m including a link to the full press conference. Here is a 10 minute recap that includes the highlights.

Here is my recap of the Samsung CES 2012 technology that will enhance your life.

Samsung is Pushing Boundaries

  • In November, Samsung sold an average of 2 TVs per second.
  • Make consumers life Simpler, Smarter & More Enjoyable (Sound like my tag line, “Technology to Enhance Your Life”)
  • Samsung has a wide array of devices that connect and the TV is the hub of this ecosystem.
  • Smart Interaction – Samsung TV will be able to Listen, See & Do without touching a remote control.
  • Smart Content – Share photos, notes, memories from TV and personal devices. Access educational & health content. TV that understands your needs.
  • Smart Evolution – TV is future-proofed. Smart TV will get smarter every year and you won’t need to buy a new one every year. Make your TV new every year. Faster, better, more content.

Samsung Future-Proof

This is cool. You know how you buy a TV and you are so excited, you get it home and then you see a commercial on that very TV with all the new TVs that are coming out (which of course drops the price of the TV you just bought.) TVs were a product you would buy and expect to own for many years. It was a major piece of furniture and we’ve got away from that. Well, Samsung is bringing that idea back with future-proof TVs. Watch the video to see how it works.

Content, Service & Connectivity is basis for their cross-platform devices.

  • Smart hub is one screen for apps & content.
  • Slim bezel & matching U-Shaped stand

Smart Content

  • Purchase your content for one device and watch it on all devices (love this!)
  • More premium content available.
  • More 3D devices available and Samsung helping to offer more 3D content
  • Angry Birds available on Samsung large screens & Angry Birds animated on-demand channel


Samsung Family Story

  • Upload photos, videos & memos direct from devices to the TV
  • workout videos, sync to wireless scale & sync to app on smart phone
  • Kids – recommends content for kids and parents can track what kids are watching
  • Each family member can log into their profile with facial recognition

This is exciting. This fulfills many of my tech needs. I workout at home and I’m always looking for new ways to find workouts and track my progress. My kids are also always looking for new shows and I love that parents can track what the kids are watching.

      • The Samsung Galaxy Note is a brilliant gadget, I love it more than the iPad mainly coz I think iPad is expensive (read-Paid Apps)…where as the Android market has so many good apps for free and even the paid ones aren’t that costly.And yeah I would love to see the Galaxy 3 too :)

  1. Hi Michele, Awesome post and eye glittering pics of gadgets. The Samsung have brought some revolutionary gadgets in the market during the recent past. The Samsung Galaxy S2 and series 8 LED’s are top sellers. I am too excited for upcoming stuff from their side.
