Dear Partners and Developers,

 

The Samsung SMART TV team is pleased to release SDK 3.5.0.

The SDK 3.5.0 supports the main features of the Samsung SMART TV Platform 2012.  This includes support for the development of JavaScript & Flash Apps on 2012 products.

 

With SDK 3.5.0, developers can choose from two IDEs:

1) Samsung IDE + Emulator

2) Eclipse IDE + Emulator

 

[New Features in SDK 3.5.0]

-       Eclipse is now supported as an IDE. 

-       InputFramework has been added.

    o    Control has been separated into a new process.

    o    App developers can change their input device using the Input Device button on the emulator screen.

 

[2012 Features]

Since SDK 3.0, we have supported new features such as Convergence (AllShare and TV-Mobile Framework) and Smart Interaction.

 

AllShare: AllShare is Samsung’s content sharing service that allows you to search for and play video, photo, and music files freely across many devices that support AllShare services, such as PC, TV, mobile phone, and digital camera. You can do this either wirelessly or with a cable.

TV-Mobile Framework: With the TV-Mobile Framework, developers can create exciting new applications that use the power of Wi-Fi connectivity between SmartTV and mobile devices. Create multiplayer games with up to 4 players, and create apps that are controlled with mobile devices. Through this experience, you can see the movie clips seamless. The only limit is your imagination.

Smart Interaction: Control. Navigate. Be recognized. Smart Interaction lets you interact with your TV as never before.  A simple gesture is all it takes to access your favorite movies, sports, apps and other Smart Content.  With voice control, your voice is all you need to turn on your Smart TV, navigate menus and get to your favorite Smart Content.  Say what you want and let your TV do the rest.
