Samsung unveils NFT platform for smart TVs

Samsung aims to introduce the first smart TV NFT explorer and marketplace aggregator.

Samsung has unveiled a new smart TV line-up with an integrated nonfungible token (NFT) platform. Samsung’s 2022 smart TVs such as Micro LED, Neo QLED and The Frame will have an NFT Platform app that can be used “for discovering, purchasing and trading digital artwork,” according to an announcement on Monday.

“With demand for NFTs on the rise, the need for a solution to today’s fragmented viewing and purchasing landscape has never been greater,” the company said.

In 2022, the company aims to introduce the first smart TV NFT explorer and marketplace aggregator. The upcoming platform will enable viewers to browse and also trade NFTs without leaving the couch.

While it’s unclear exactly which NFT platforms or marketplaces will be included for aggregation, Samsung promised its smart TVs will not tamper with the image quality, keeping the NFT creator’s pre-set values.

Other than integrating NFTs in its products, the South Korean multinational conglomerate has been actively investing in NFT and metaverse projects through its venture capital arm, Samsung Next.

Aside from NFT, Samsung’s 2022 Smart TVs come with a new Smart Hub that puts content curation and discovery front and centre with their viewing preferences. The new Smart Hub will guide users to their favourite content or help them discover something new all while spending less time searching.

The Smart Hub’s sidebar also allows for a seamless transition between categories – Media, Game (Gaming Hub) and Ambient – letting users focus on various in-home activities.

Gaming Hub

The Samsung Gaming Hub will empower players to discover and jump into the games they love faster through game streaming services. Players will have access to an extensive library of games through Samsung’s partnerships with industry leaders – NVIDIA GeForce Now, Stadia and Utomik – and that’s just the beginning.

Watch Together

The new app allows users to video chat with friends and family while watching their favourite shows and movies, guaranteed to bring everyone closer together.

Smart Calibration

This feature allows users to fine tune the settings for optimal picture quality. Basic mode features a quick and easy way of calibrating the screens within 30 seconds, while Professional mode optimizes the screens for pristine picture quality in about 10 minutes.
