Samsung Electronics Co, Ltd. recently announced Remote Access, a new feature that will be available on its Smart TV lineups starting in 2019. The announcement was made ahead of the annual CES 2019 consumer electronics show currently taking place in Las Vegas this week. The event features consumer technologies and hosts over 4,500 exhibitors from around the world

The Remote Access feature will provide enhanced wireless connectivity with PCs, tablets, and smartphones – allowing consumers to remotely control compatible programs and apps through their Samsung Smart TV.

With Remote Access, input devices, including keyboards, can be connected to a Samsung Smart TV, making it easier for users to control their on-screen content. Without a separate HDMI cable connection, users can remotely access a PC in their room through the TV in their living room to perform various tasks including surfing the web or playing games from their TV's screen using a connected keyboard and mouse.

Remote Access allows users to directly control their devices connected to a TV with a keyboard and mouse in addition to simply displaying the content on a larger screen. Additionally, web browser-based cloud office service can be accessed through Remote Access, so users can now access files and work on documents from their Smart TVs.

The new feature was showcased at CES 2019 as well as other innovative ways that its latest AI (Artificial Intelligence) and IoT (Internet of Things) technologies can simplify daily life. These include brand new applications for AI and IoT, new ways to make AI do more, as well as new devices that place AI and IoT at the center of users' connected lives.

Hyogun Lee, Executive Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics has outlined the direction that Samsung is pursuing with its new Remote Access feature.

“Samsung is committed to creating an intuitive and convenient user experience for consumers. With Remote Access, consumers will be able to easily access various programs, apps and cloud services installed on multiple connected devices directly through their TV screen,” he stated. “We will continue to collaborate with our partners to expand the compatibility of Remote Access and provide more services to our users.”

Remote Access can be used anywhere in the world thanks to VMware Horizon, a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) solution that Samsung and its partner VMware, a leading innovator in enterprise software, provide to consumers.

“Samsung and VMware share a passion for helping workers to be as productive as possible. 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 favorite Samsung devices – including a Samsung Smart TV,” said Shankar Iyer, Senior Vice President and General Manager, End User Computing at VMware.
