Samsung today launched the Samsung "Smart View" application that enables users to view images from a Samsung Smart TV or other input device right on their mobile devices.
Available now for the Samsung GALAXY S II, the free Smart View application displays Smart TV images right onto mobile devices via wireless Ethernet.
In addition, users can browse any currently installed Smart TV applications from their mobile devices.
Samsung has brought movies, TV programs, music and other desired content stored on DLNA-certified devices such as PCs, mobile phones and cameras to the large TV screens?and is now extending this function by mirroring images back to mobile devices through this new application.
The Smart View app for mobile devices also enables mobile viewing from around the home. With only one Smart TV, a family member can watch one TV program in the living room, while another family member enjoys either the same content?or movies played by the living room Blu-ray player?from the comfort of the bedroom while leaning back with a Samsung smart phone or tablet.
Samsung added that a "Channel List" option, which lets users search program information and change channels on their mobile devices, will be added also added going forward.
The Samsung Smart View is now available in the Android Market for Samsung Smart TV D7000, D8000, and D9500 series, as well as the GALAXY S II, and will be available for the GALAXY player (YP-GB70) in July, along with the GALAXY S and GALAXY Tab later this year.
