Samsung Telecommunications America (Samsung Mobile) have announced that Samsung HomeSync™, a household Android™ media centre for storing, synchronizing and streaming content across multiple devices, will be available beginning October 6 for $299. With HomeSync customers will be able to share, view and control content from their Galaxy devices directly to their TV while at home or on the go.
“HomeSync is a powerful platform that we envision to be the centre of a household’s connected life,” says Nanda Ramachandran, vice president of emerging business at Samsung Mobile. “We saw an opportunity to create a companion device at home, that seamlessly syncs all of your mobile content wherever you are.”
HomeSync’s Android user interface is similar to your Galaxy smartphone or tablet and is easy to use. It allows customers to use their Galaxy device as a remote control to browse through various entertainment choices on their TV. HomeSync also provides 1TB (terabyte) of secure storage for up to eight separate accounts and allows each user the option to sync, as well as upload and download mobile content. This means photos taken by one family member at an event or on the road can be seen by another family member either from their TV or another connected mobile device.
“HomeSync is the latest addition to the Galaxy family of products and builds on Samsung’s commitment to delivering innovative devices and advanced technologies to consumers,” says Travis Merrill, vice president of marketing at Samsung Electronics America.
