Samsung Details HomeSync for Galaxy Streaming, Syncing, and Sharing

Posted Thu Oct 3, 2013 at 11:00 AM PDT by

The Android media center will be available later this week.

Bridging the gap between mobile devices and home theaters, Samsung's new HomeSync box allows users to connect their Samsung Galaxy devices directly to their TVs, enabling synchronization, streaming, and storage for a variety of content.

"HomeSync is a powerful platform that we envision to be the center of a household’s connected life," said Nanda Ramachandran, vice president of emerging business at Samsung Mobile. "We saw an opportunity to create a companion device at home, that seamlessly syncs all of your mobile content wherever you are."

With HomeSync, customers can use their Galaxy smartphones as a remote control, and the device offers 1TB of storage space with support for up to eight separate accounts. Real time streaming and real time sharing are also key features, enabling users to sync and share content quickly no matter where they are, and stream media wirelessly straight to their TVs. Through a simple HDMI connection, the box transforms any television into a smart TV.

HomeSync will only work with Samsung Android devices that use Samsung Link, and will be available on October 6 for a suggested retail price of $299.
