Seoul – August 5, 2015 – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., will implement a new Android security update process that fast tracks the security patches over the air when security vulnerabilities are uncovered. These security updates will take place regularly about once per month.

Samsung has recently fast tracked security updates to its Galaxy devices with the recent Android Stagefright issues working with the carriers and partners. Acknowledging the importance of time sensitivity in addressing major vulnerabilities, the company plans to further develop this process and implement it as a timely security update practice.

“With the recent security issues, we have been rethinking the approach to getting security updates to our devices in a more timely manner. Since software is constantly exploited in new ways, developing a fast response process to deliver security patches to our devices is critical to keep them protected. We believe that this new process will vastly improve the security of our devices and will aim to provide the best mobile experience possible for our users,” said Dong Jin Koh, EVP of Mobile Research and Development at Samsung Electronics.

Samsung is currently in conversation with carriers around the world to implement the new approach. In collaboration with carriers and partners, more details about the specific models and timelines will be released soon.

Product News : SAMSUNG Showcases Solutions for Smart, Dynamic and Connected Retail Environments at NRF 2015


Press Content – Copy and minify style element and div presscontent element.

New York – January 11, 2015 – Samsung Electronics America, Inc. is presenting its vision for an immersive and interactive retail experience at NRF 2015, highlighting a range of co-created solutions suited for every retail environment, from the storefront to the showroom to the loading dock, warehouse and back office. Combining seamlessly with a diverse group of industry partners, Samsung smart signage displays, Galaxy tablets, smartphones and wearables, multifunction printers and more will be shown in a number of real-world retail settings at booth #600 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center from January 11-13.

“With a collaborative approach to innovation, Samsung is in a unique position to leverage our vertical market knowledge and breadth of technology to create smarter, more dynamic and connected retail environments, helping retailers close the loop between marketing spending and consumer purchases,” said Ted Brodheim, Vice President of Vertical Business at Samsung’s Enterprise Business Division. “Partnering with a number of industry leaders, our technology-driven solutions enable innovation at every point in the retail setting to change the way retailers inform, engage and drive sales to enhance the in-store shopping experience for customers and maximize operational efficiency.”

The innovative solutions on display at the Samsung booth highlight opportunities to drive seamless workflows, increase mobility and unlock new possibilities throughout the retail environment, including:

The Storefront: Attracting Customers, Measuring Opportunity
Storefronts offer invaluable real estate for attracting new customers and projecting the brand, but are too often static presentations that lack engagement and responsiveness. At NRF, Samsung is presenting an intelligent digital storefront solution combining its new high brightness smart signage displays and analytics from partner Quividi.

Leveraging Samsung’s OMD Series displays and a simple video sensor, the solution uses Quividi‘s proprietary image sensing technology to count actual viewers and overall opportunities to see (OTS), while accurately measuring attention times and dwell times and estimating the gender and age distributions of a retailer’s audience. This real-time analysis can also be used to target content in order to better engage shoppers.

Designed to deliver consistently brilliant performance, the Samsung OMD Series LED-lit LCD displays are rated at up to 2,500 nits brightness to grab attention even in high ambient light environments, such as retail storefront windows. Powered by the next-generation Samsung Smart Signage Platform, these displays offer a simple, smart and visually attractive way for businesses to showcase content and attract customers, so that no matter the surroundings their messages will come across clear and bright.

The Showroom: Engaging, Informing and Enhancing Interactions
Showcasing a range of interactive display and Point of Sale (POS) solutions, Samsung will demonstrate how retailers can leverage technology to create more interactivity in the showroom to increase customer engagement and drive sales.

In partnership with ComQi and Freshwater, Samsung is demonstrating an assistive selling kiosk utilizing RFID to instantly deliver dynamic product information and suggested accessories to shoppers, with or without the assistance of a salesperson. This solution utilizes the Samsung DB22D, a 21.5-inch LED commercial display.

Featuring its Galaxy tablet lineup, including the Galaxy Tab® S, Samsung will also demonstrate opportunities for increased mobility in the showroom. Samsung is highlighting partnerships with several mobile payment solution providers, including eMobilePOS, PowaPOS and PowaTag, and Verifone (see partnership announcement), which allow retailers to ring up transactions, track sales and view analytics all on a Galaxy tablet device. These solutions keep sales staff mobile and able to address the needs of customers and management from anywhere on the showroom floor.

The Loading Dock and Warehouse: Mobility and Connectivity for Rugged Environments
Samsung will also exhibit the Galaxy Tab® Active, its first tablet built specifically for in-field use. Featuring a ruggedized, portable design, the device is ideal for those working in challenging retail environments including the loading dock and warehouse. With IP67 dust and water resistant certification, the Galaxy Tab Active comes with a bundled protective case which permits it to endure drops of up to four feet. The Samsung Knox enterprise security platform is also available on the latest Galaxy smartphones and tablets, ensuring business and customer information is safely contained.

Through partnerships with eMobilePOS, Honeywell, Infinite Peripherals and KOAMTAC, Samsung is also able to add inventory management and remote charging capabilities to its Galaxy mobile devices. For example, KOAMTAC‘s barcode and RFID readers integrate seamlessly with the Galaxy S5 smartphone to enable easy inventory tracking and other auto identification applications, or via Bluetooth with Galaxy tablets.

Samsung’s innovative lineup of wearables, including the Galaxy Gear™ S and Gear™ Fit, also enable field-based workers to stay connected, quickly view alerts and send dispatches to enhance workflows.

The Back Office and Corporate: Driving Operational Efficiency
In addition to display and mobility products, Samsung offers a number of solutions that help retailers manage staff and inventory. This includes a mobile manager that enables managers to spend more time on the sales floor and less time in the office by providing real-time sales, inventory and personnel management and communication with headquarters and other internal teams. To track staff on the showroom floor, Samsung is demonstrating an asset management platform from Timeforge that allows retailers to monitor hot and cold spots in the store, and analyze item placement and promotions.

Bringing a fresh look to business, Samsung will showcase its latest smartphones, including the Galaxy Note® 4 and Galaxy Note® Edge, which feature the enhanced S Pen for note-taking and productivity and advanced security with Samsung Knox. Samsung’s award-winning line of printers and MFPs will also be on display, including the world’s first Android-powered printers, which provide an intuitive, customizable user interface for streamlining workflows and business productivity.

Samsung’s full technology portfolio for retail is available through Samsung distributors and resellers. For more information, please visit http://www.samsung.com/us/business/by-industry/retail/.

Product News : SAMSUNG Invites You to Experience a New Healthcare Solution at RSNA


Press Content – Copy and minify style element and div presscontent element.

CHICAGO – December 1, 2014 – Samsung Electronics America Inc., a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, is reinforcing its commitment to delivering fast, easy and accurate diagnostic solutions for healthcare providers through its expanded portfolio on display at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) Annual Meeting at McCormick Place in Chicago. Product specialists will be on hand all week at booth #7360 (North Building) demonstrating Samsung’s full range of solutions designed to enhance the quality of care and transform the patient experience, including Digital Radiography, Ultrasound and portable Computed Tomography systems.

“From our expanded line of Digital Radiography systems, to the launch of our first premium Ultrasound for the Radiology segment and groundbreaking Point-of-Care ultrasound trials, this has been the most significant year of investment and growth to date for Samsung in Health and Medical Equipment,” said Soo-In Cho, President and Head of the Health & Medical Equipment Business at Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. “We remain committed to continually demonstrating to the healthcare community how the combination of Samsung imaging technology, user-inspired design and customer-centric innovation can help enhance the quality of care for patients and unlock workflow efficiencies for hospitals and providers.”

Expanded Line-up for Radiology Segment

Samsung’s growing portfolio of innovative diagnostic systems, including new products designed for radiology applications, are the cornerstone of its presence at RSNA. New products on display include:

  • Samsung RS80A, a high-resolution, full-featured, premium ultrasound system offering an intuitive user-interface and design, and sophisticated digital image processing and superb resolution to support accurate diagnosis. Recently introduced into the U.S. market, the system is the latest addition to Samsung’s comprehensive portfolio of Ultrasound imaging solutions.
  • Samsung GM60A, pending FDA 510(k) clearance, is a mobile DR system that delivers high-quality imaging directly to the patient’s bedside. The GM60A combines effortless workflow with advanced mobility, providing high diagnostic confidence with excellent image quality and reliable operation with enhanced usability on the go.
  • Samsung GC85A, not currently available in the US market, is an enhanced DR system offering streamlined workflows, diagnostic confidence and improved total cost of ownership. The GC85A features the S-Vue imaging engine, ensuring consistency with high quality imaging, convenient setting of contrast and improved sharpness and clarity.

Breakthrough Solutions for Emergency Services

Samsung has invested considerable energy and resources this year into exploring innovative applications in the Point-of-Care segment, one of most important areas of growth in the healthcare market. Examples include:

  • A groundbreaking trial utilizing tablet-based ultrasound in emergency services vehicles in the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area to help inform advance treatment decisions for critical trauma patients. Images are transmitted wirelessly from Samsung’s PT60A ultrasound to doctors at the awaiting hospital using Trice Imaging’s mobile encryption and image management system. The ability of physicians to view immediate images of what the responders are seeing in the field means they can better determine the course of treatment – for example, whether to send the patient straight to the OR, bypassing the ER. This saves time, money and, potentially, lives during what’s known as “the golden hour” following a traumatic injury or cardiac arrest. Since the trial began July 1 of this year, ultrasound has been employed in more than 100 callouts to support diagnosis in cases involving trauma, internal bleeding, acute abdominal pain and cardiac arrest.
  • Samsung subsidiary NeuroLogica has worked with Cleveland Clinic on their Mobile Stroke Treatment Unit, an emergency response vehicle equipped with highly specialized staff, medications and equipment. This includes a portable NeuroLogica CereTom CT scanner – designed to get stroke patients potentially life-saving care faster by bringing treatment to them. The innovative unit, one of the first of its kind in the country, launches in tandem with Cleveland EMS for 911 calls for suspected strokes in the city of Cleveland and has treated over 100 patients since its launch in July of this year.

Expanded DR Lineup Features Advanced Image Quality, Increased Connectivity

Samsung’s new imaging engine, S-Vue, offers sophisticated digital image processing and superb resolution to support accurate diagnosis. Its ability to take high quality images of various anatomical structures ensures consistency, and with its advanced noise filtering and capturing of fine pulmonary vessels, S-Vue also offers improved sharpness and clarity for accurate diagnosis.

Samsung’s S-Detector, which supports enhanced image quality and patient safety with greater DQE (Detective Quantum Efficiency) and lower NED (Noise Equivalent Dose), has also been updated with additional usability features. The new S3025-W, pending FDA 510(k) clearance, is lightweight and streamlined to improve usability, and offers water and dust resistance to enhance durability.

S-Share, pending FDA 510(k) clearance, is Samsung’s new platform for increasing connectivity, expected to be featured in all Samsung DR devices including the GU60A, GM60A and GC80, within a single hospital.

“Samsung understands the unique challenges small business owners face when it comes to selecting and implementing technology, and we built this product to address the market need for a cost-effective, easy-to-manage, professional-grade solution that is better suited for these environments than the consumer solutions that many small business owners are using,” said Tod Pike, senior vice president at Samsung’s Enterprise Business Division. “With Samsung Smart Signage TV, we’re giving small business owners the power to enhance their customer communications, enabling them to create more personalized content to drive conversations that extend long after a customer leaves the store to keep them coming back.”

Available in 40- and 48-inch models, Samsung SSTV provides a complete platform for displaying digital content about new promotions and daily specials, sharing educational information about products and services, and broadcasting live TV for on-premise entertainment. Business owners can wirelessly connect to the TV from their laptop, tablet or mobile device to instantly publish and update content, or load new content using a USB drive.

An out-of-the-box solution is very interesting and one that small businesses could easily leverage to differentiate from their competitors and grow.”

This offering further builds out Samsung’s suite of digital signage solutions, which includes the Samsung Smart Signage Platform (SSP) for larger organizations.

InfoComm attendees can see the full lineup of Samsung commercial display innovations for education, retail, corporate and more at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Booth #C6319, from June 18-20.

“Samsung has a legacy of leadership in display technology and digital signage, and we are now leading the exciting transition to UHD for customers looking to deliver more visually engaging, memorable visual experiences,” said Tod Pike, Senior Vice President at Samsung’s Enterprise Business Division. “As 4K content becomes more prevalent and cost-effective to produce, offerings like our new QMD Series enable early adopters to wow their audiences and ensure they are future-proofed as the UHD becomes the new standard.”

QMD Series UHD Lineup
Ideal for high-end retail, hospitality or public spaces where making a visual impact is important, the Samsung QMD Series is a slim, full-featured and dependable choice for customers looking to make the step up from HD to UHD. The displays offer life-like picture quality with UHD resolution, featuring four times the number of pixels (3840 x 2160) compared to Full HD (1080p). The QMD Series is designed for use in settings where digital content plays a critical role in both capturing attention or delivering highly detailed visual information, including retail signage, conference room presentations and videoconferencing, movie production, CAD/CAM design and command/control centers.

The Picture by Picture function allows users to display up to four content feeds at once, each supporting Full HD 1080 resolution.

Product News : SAMSUNG Debuts “The Curve Changes Everything”

RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J. – May 19, 2014 – Samsung Electronics America, Inc., a market leader and award-winning innovator in consumer electronics, unveiled a new marketing campaign highlighting its new Curved UHD TV. The campaign, “The Curve Changes Everything,” kicked off last night, with a televised commercial which aired during Sunday’s primetime programming including ““Mad Men” (AMC), “Women of SNL” (NBC), the season finale of “Family Guy” (FOX) and more.

To communicate the immersive entertainment experience of Samsung’s Curved UHD TVs, Samsung collaged memorable moments from film, television, and the Internet to tell a visual story that depicts the emotion, wonder and excitement that viewers experience when watching their favorite content on a Samsung Curved TV. Whether watching a movie, cheering a favorite sports team, or sharing a favorite YouTube clip, a Samsung Curved UHD TV makes that experience better.

“For the past eight years, Samsung has continued to bring the best, most innovative and well-designed TVs to the market for consumers,” said Peggy Ang, Vice President of Marketing Communications at Samsung Electronics America. “With every change in TV technology, there has been a dramatic reshaping of the TVs themselves. With the introduction of the Samsung Curved UHD TV, Samsung is leading the way in TV innovation and we are excited to launch this exciting new campaign showcasing the beauty and benefit of the curve.”

Director Rian Johnson (Looper, Brick, Breaking Bad) and Oscar winning cinematographer Claudio Miranda (Life of Pi, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) used iconic scenes from Back to the Future, Jurassic Park, Trouble with the Curve, The Wizard of Oz, Gravity and other iconic content to stitch together notable quotes showcasing the stunning effect of the curve.

“The Samsung Curved TV is just a beautiful object,” said Director Rian Johnson. “Beyond the quality of the picture, the industrial design of the TV – with its subtle curve – is really stunning when you see it up close in person. We were tasked with finding ways to show off the curve, but you really just need to point a camera at the TV and it pops off the screen. It was a pleasure to shoot.”

Following Sunday’s airing, the ads will run nationally on major networks, cable and online. In addition to the TV spots, the campaign will also include print, digital and out-of-home (OOH) components that will feature the curve in new and innovative ways. Beginning in June, Samsung will bring the curve to life on billboards with a striking version of the Samsung Curved UHD TV. These billboards, which will be displayed in New York and Los Angeles, will showcase Samsung’s Curved UHD TVs as truly the next big thing in TV entertainment.

Samsung Curved UHD TVs are now available at retail, including the flagship HU9000 series. With four times the resolution of full HD, these TVs provide unsurpassed picture quality. The curved screen gives, videos a presence not felt on flat screens , and a wider field of view that draws viewers in like no TV has done before.

The D Series introduces the next-generation of Samsung’s Smart Signage Platform featuring an enhanced system-on-a-chip that supports advanced applications without the need for an external media player or PC, streamlining deployment and significantly reducing total cost of ownership.

“The benefits of digital signage in presenting dynamic messaging are clear, but transitioning from static signs to digital signage has often been viewed as too complex or costly, particularly for smaller businesses or organizations,” said Tod Pike, senior vice president at Samsung’s Enterprise Business Division. “Our new D Series lineup with the latest version of the Samsung Smart Signage Platform is helping to simplify and reduce the cost of deploying digital signage. We are committed to continuing to expand the Smart Signage Platform partner eco-system and delivering new innovations to enable more customers to tap into the power of digital signage.”

A new study commissioned by Samsung shows that the Smart Signage Platform reduces total cost of ownership by up to 30 percent when compared with traditional digital signage solutions that utilize displays with external media players or PCs to deliver content.

Available in 32-inch, 40-inch, 48-inch and 55-inch models, the displays are a cost-efficient solution ideal for retail environments, quick service restaurants, meeting rooms, public spaces and more. Rated for 16-hour daily operation, the DB-D lineup offers reliability that goes beyond a full business day, and flexibility thanks to a multitude of inputs.

Product News : SAMSUNG Expands Zero Client Lineup with New Desktop Endpoint

RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J., April 9, 2014Samsung Electronics America, Inc. today announced availability of its first standalone zero client desktop, the NX-N2-T, a compact and highly versatile VDI device that enables businesses to simplify and secure their desktop endpoints with built-in PColP® technology. Rounding out Samsung’s zero client lineup, the Samsung NX-N2-T is a VESA mountable endpoint that has the ability to support the I/O connectivity that today’s business users need, including use cases requiring up to six different USB devices.

“Our zero client product portfolio offers customers the broadest spectrum of endpoints to securely access the cloud and critical industry-specific applications, whether for large enterprises, healthcare providers, government agencies or higher education institutions,” said Tod Pike, senior vice president at Samsung’s Enterprise Business Division. “We’re committed to meeting the needs of these user environments, regardless of existing infrastructure and budget. Zero client solutions like the NX-N2-T Desktop are flexible and easy for businesses to deploy, maintain and manage, and are less vulnerable to security risks.”

Seamless, Secure Migration and Management
The Samsung NX-N2-T Zero Client Desktop features built-in PCoIP technology from Teradici that enables users to seamlessly connect to their organization’s VMware business cloud. This technology supports the need for businesses to simplify and secure their network endpoints with desktop intelligence baked-in to the design. The PCoIP zero client processor is used to reduce the desktop attack surface while almost eliminating the need for client-side administration. Since most software is remote and critical data is centralized, businesses are able to reduce the time and money invested in client-side administration.

Built for Adaptability, Affordability and Efficiency
Equipped with the latest Teradici chipset (Tera2), the NX-N2-T Desktop delivers up to five times the VDI pixel performance over the previous generation processor. It provides stronger security with AES 256-bit encryption and requires less power consumption, increasing efficiency and reducing energy costs. Using the included lightweight detachable stand, the NX-N2-T can be VESA mounted to a wall, the back of a monitor or hidden under a desk. This eliminates unplanned costs for mounting kits, while providing more out-of-the-box installation choices.

“The markets for VDI and emerging Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) are accelerating rapidly as today’s enterprises look to simplify desktop management, increase security and deliver a rich user experience,” said Randy Groves, CTO at Teradici. “Building on a track record of success with PCoIP zero clients, Samsung is extending its line-up of flexible, affordable zero client devices with the addition of the NX-N2-T desktop to its portfolio of popular zero-client display and zero-client stand endpoints.”

In addition to the NX-N2-T Desktop, Samsung’s Zero Client lineup features the NB-NH stand and NC Series displays. The NB-NH transforms business monitors into VDI access devices by integrating the latest VDI endpoint technology into the base of the monitor stand. Samsung’s NC Series zero client lineup is a class of professional-grade monitors specially designed to provide an all-in-one solution for desktop virtualization and cloud computing.

Price and Availability
The new NX-N2-T Zero-Client Desktop is now available with MAP price of $298. All Samsung Zero Client devices can be found at select Samsung resellers and channel partners. Local availability can be determined by calling 1-866-SAM-4BIZ or by visiting samsung.com/virtualdesktop.
