Samsung Brings Out New Blu-ray Line, UltraViolet Cloud Access
Once digital copies have been created and added to the consumer's UltraViolet collection, the content will be available to enjoy through the Flixster Smart Hub application on Samsung's Smart Hub, as well as a broad range of mobile and portable devices such as iPhones, iPads and Android-based devices as well as PCs and Macs. UltraViolet also allows consumers to share their entire UltraViolet digital library with other members on their account, and they can even watch the same title simultaneously from different locations.
Flixster will also be available this year on Samsung TVs and Blu-ray players. Through the application, consumers will be able to easily access and stream their UltraViolet movie and TV show collections directly on their TVs.
Disc to Digital uses Rovi Digital Copy Solution, which integrates into consumer electronics devices as well as PC applications to allow them to recognize a movie on a physical disc, authenticate its origin, and then trigger access to a copy from a cloud-based digital library.
As if that weren't enough, the company also announced their 2012 Blu-ray player lineup. The BD-ES6000 and BD-E6500 are receiving heaps of praise, with 1080p playback, cloud support and 3D support. Pricing remains a mystery for now, but all should be revealed in the months ahead.
