Samsung to release Tizen SDK for TVs

Tizen logoSamsung Electronics will soon release a Tizen-based Samsung TV SDK, the first Software Development Kit (SDK) that allows developers to build applications for the Tizen-based TV.

Samsung’s Tizen-based TV SDK Beta will be available early July following the Tizen Developer Conference in San Francisco from June 2-4th. The Tizen-based Samsung TV SDK Beta supports the HTML5 standard through its framework called Caph and enables developers to write apps that run on a Tizen OS -based TVs.

"With the ultimate goal of expanding the TV ecosystem for apps, we will continue our efforts to provide innovative functions and improve the development environment," said YoungKi Byun, Vice President of Visual Display Business S/W R&D Team, Samsung Electronics.

Samsung hopes that the new SDK will attarct app developers and help the expansion of the Tizen OS. Developers can virtually see all necessary TV functions without a physical TV. The SDK also allows them to remotely modify code on their PCs with the new debugging feature, whereas in the past they had to connect directly to the TV’s software to correct application errors.

The Tizen-based Samsung TV SDK Beta also features various scenarios including Smart Interaction, allowing users to control their TVs with simple hand gestures and voice commands; and multi-screen, which can be used to link a TV with various devices including mobile and wearable gadgets.

Samsung’s Tizen-based TV SDK can be downloaded at the Samsung Developers Forum website,, starting in early July, 2014.
