What's Korean for Software Development Kit? We're not sure and Google Translate can only offer 소프트웨어 개발 키트 한국 무엇입니까? But if that's not accurate, at least you can enjoy news that Samsung Electronics has released five new software development kits (SDKs) for creating consumer and enterprise apps on its smartphones, tablets, and Smart TVs.
"There are close to half a billion connected devices in the world today, yet a very limited portion are actually connected to each other," said Dr. Won-Pyo Hong, president and head of the Samsung Electronics media solution center.
"Samsung is creating one of the largest connected platforms spanning a broad range of devices that people love and use every day, including smartphones, tablets, and TVs. We are clearing a path for creative developers who want to participate in this multiscreen future, and the SDKs we are releasing give them a way to start creating for multiscreen."
The new SDKs include a more streamlined mobile SDK, multiscreen SDK, multiscreen gaming SDK, and a Samsung Smart TV SDK. Also, Samsung KNOX SDK will be introduced.
Based on a cloud publishing system, the Multiscreen SDK includes APIs for one-touch discovery and pairing of devices, which allows for content sharing across devices. The firm has partnered with Unity Technologies to create the Samsung Multiscreen Gaming SDK. It is a gaming engine built on top of its own multiscreen SDK that allows game developers to create immersive multiscreen gaming experiences that people play on any big screen TV using a Samsung smartphone or tablet as a console.
The Samsung Smart TV SDK lets developers and content partners create applications for Samsung Smart TVs. This new version includes WebEngine 2014 for support of next year's Smart TVs, as well as Samsung Connect for multiscreen support. The SDK also now supports Smart Home development, closed captioning so that subtitles can appear in video apps, and improved content filtering and search.
