Yesterday, right before the the Mobile World Congress, Samsung officially unveiled its Samsung HomeSync, that the company calls a home hub solution which comes with a shared storage fit for a family. It's said to provide the best entertainment experience on a big screen TV and a new way of enjoying HDTV through a familiar and smarter Android user experience. Samsung HomeSync's 1 TB drive can help users to sync to multiple devices and providing shared or private storage for all kind of content. It supports eight separate accounts to cover a whole family, and allows each user to upload and download content from multiple devices and instantly share with other family members.
File encryption and user-specific ID and password ensure content in a user's private area remains separate from the shared area in HomeSync. While it's not a Google TV, Samsung's HomeSync brings the best of Android apps, games, movies, TV shows and streaming content into the living room.
It allows users to stream content from Galaxy devices wirelessly to the TV - at full 1080p HD.
Users can enjoy the full and familiar Android experience with HomeSync's Jelly Bean media player and access to Play Store and all of the apps. HomeSync also enables new ways to interact with content via the control modes enabled wirelessly on the phone.
HomeSync will be available from April 2013 in select countries and continue to expand globally.
