Samsung Wants to Bring Web Browsing, Office Work to the TV

Samsung's 2019 TVs can remotely access your PC

Samsung's 2019 TVs can remotely access your PC

"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", said Hyogun Lee, Executive Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. If you are interested in using this feature with your PC then you might be happy to learn you will be able to connect a keyboard and mouse to the Samsung Smart TV for full control.

As well as allowing for easier connectivity, Samsung is hoping this leads to more services being accessed through its TVs. According to the company, the feature will let people work on documents, play games, surf the Web, and even stream content on their smart TV screens, all through a PC or laptop. The company previewed a new feature dubbed Remote Access this week, which integrates both Samsung's own Knox security framework as well as remote access software from VMWare. With that being said, Samsung didn't provide any insights into the kind of latency customers might expect or what kind of wireless router you'll need to have to enable Remote Access in the home.

The press release also claims a "web browser-based cloud office service" will be accessible via Remote Access-though no word on if this will be a Google or Microsoft affair, or some new Bixby-branded office suite.

This fall, California became the first US state to mandate that publicly traded companies have women on their boards. The SEC said the claim was "false and misleading", and chose to sue him for alleged securities fraud.

"Samsung and VMware share a passion for helping workers to be as productive as possible".

"Samsung is committed to creating an intuitive and convenient user experience for consumers". Its 2019 TV sets will allow you to remote access your computer.

We'll know more about how well Remote Access works when Samsung launches its 2019 TVs, but the most likely place for it to put in a first appearance is CES next month.
