Samsung: IoT Will Mean Better TV and Easier Parking

Third-party apps are key to Samsung's future, executives said at the company's dev conference.

Perhaps known best for its HDTVs and the Galaxy family of smartphones and tablets, Samsung is now building up its software offerings in its quest to stake out a presence in the living rooms, automobiles, and smart cities of the future.

The Korean electronics giant unveiled an SDK for its smart TVs at its developers conference in San Francisco today, the latest addition to the company's campaign to bring developers into its Internet of Things ecosystem. The goal is to help Samsung achieve a "lion's share" of the estimated 20 billion Internet-connected devices that will be produced by 2020, according to company executives.

"We have changed from a hardware company into really a software company," said Director of R&D Injong Rhee, a former computer science professor. "Software plays a key role in everything we do."

An update to the Smart View SDK should make it easier for consumers to navigate content within third-party apps on their Samsung TVs with the addition of "preview titles," reminiscent of the Windows 10 start menu. The bottom row of the TV's home screen will display installed apps, while a new row at the top will allow you to browse their content. That means you can find your favorite Netflix show without launching the app.

You'll also be able to pay for purchases with a new Samsung Checkout integration, which was previously available in select apps but is now rolling out to all developers.

Samsung also announced an SDK program for its Artik IoT platform, which are SD card-sized modules that cram in a processor, memory, radios, and security protocols. The latest module, called the Artik 5, offers similar processing capabilities as the Raspberry Pi, but also includes Zigbee and Google Thread support.

To demonstrate how Artik could help solve environmental and overcrowding issues, Samsung aired a video narrated by Morgan Freeman that describes a future of smart city infrastructure that combats climate change and conserves natural resources.

"Even in a simple view of a city, the opportunities for IoT are tremendous," said VP of ecosystems Curtis Sasaki. One application is parking: strategically placed sensors could communicate with your car, helping to eliminate the estimated 30 percent of city traffic that is caused by people circling blocks to look for a spot to park their car.

Play BRD/DVD movie for watching on TV via AC Ryan Player

Now A.C. Ryan is looking to fix that with the new Playon! HD media player, and if the specifications are anything to go by it's onto an absolute winner. It supports every video format in popular use, including not just MOV and MKV but also such rarities as ASF, FLV and RMVB, all at up to 1,080p over both HDMI and component - and for home cinema buffs there's even 1,080p 24 support.

Below is the users point of view: 

After searching the best workfow for ripping blue ray/dvd on mac, I find Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper for Mac. Then I purchase its products and found them competitive and reliable. Ease of use and reliability in ripping many many different discs. Biggest improvement of this program is that I would welcome would be the ability to estimate output file size based on ripping parameters so I could quickly check how big the final file would likely be. Previously I have used RipIt for Mac and Handbrake/Jack the Ripper. Biggest problem with these was that they didn’t always read discs. Never had that problem with the BD Ripper for Mac from Pavtube. I have HTC One, iPad mini, Phone used as phone, data collection device, emails, messaging and games and iPad for MPD control, surfing and emails, Pavtube offers many presets for these devices. 

Download Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper for Mac and install it. It is the ideal software to you. It will help to rip and convert Blu-ray to a mass of videos formats with fast speed and high video quality. Moreover, you can choose the desired subtitle for output and select forced subtitles for some foreign languages.

Step 2. Choose output format for TV/AC Ryan player. 

Choose TV/AC Ryan player supported formats in the "Format" dropdown list. You can go to "Common Video" or "HD Video" options to find what you like. MKV(Matroska) Video (*.mkv) or MKV HD Video (*.mkv) format is better for wathing or streaming on TV/AC Ryan player. It will remain the high quality of Blu-ray and suffer less quality loss. 


Tips: For some advances users, you can go to adjust video and audio parameters like bitrate, resolution, channels, etc. Click "Settings" button you can go to check and change them as you like.

If you simply want to back up Blu-ray to external hard drive, here are two solutions: 

1. Click the "computer" icon on the top to output 1:1 Blu-ray file exactly the same as original. 

2. Select "Copy>Directly Copy" in format list to output an intact m2ts file of the main title. 

3. I used another Pavtube program called ByteCopy for Mac to backup my Blu-rays without quality loss. Meanwhile, several audio tracks and subtitles are preserved so I can switch language when watching movies.

Welcome to "Last Month In Movies", a column that takes a look back on all the new releases that came out in the past month. Posted at the end of every month, LMiM talks about the good, the bad, and tops it off with a "Movie of the Month". 

Note: Sorry for the delay! It was a mix of both life getting busy and me slacking off. Anyways, enjoy! LMiM: March 2016 coming April 1! 

This month saw everyone's favorite anti-hero get his own movie, a fantasy flop of epic proportions, the Coen brothers take on 1950s Hollywood, a sequel to a cult comedy, and two biopics of Olympians who defied the odds.The (Surprisingly) Good 

Also known as The (Subjectively) Good, these are movies that, while caused some division among critics and audiences, I personally enjoyed and I recommend checking out. 

'Hail, Caesar!' 

The Coen brothers follow up on their written work for 'Bridge of Spies' with the comedy 'Hail, Caesar!'. Studio executive Eddie Mannix (Josh Brolin) is making sure scandals surrounding various actors are kept out of the press, but when superstar Baird Whitlock (George Clooney) is abducted, Eddie must rescue him, while keeping rival gossip columnists Thora and Thessaly Thacker (both played by Tilda Swinton) from finding out. 

The movie is an all-star spectacle that does an amazing job of putting the viewer in 1950s Los Angeles, and although it focuses mainly on Eddie and Baird, each side story feels natural to the overall backdrop on post-war Hollywood. 

'Triple 9' 

The second all-star movie to come out this year tells the story of a group of police officers and former soldiers (Chiwetel Ejifor, Aaron Paul, Norman Reedus, Clifton Collins Jr. and Anthony Mackie) who must murder a fellow officer (Casey Affleck) in order to pull of a heist. 

This has been a movie I've heard a lot about over the past couple years, and to see it on the big screen was well worth the wait. The acting from each actor is top-notch, the cinematography is beautiful, and John Hillcoat does a phenomenal directing job. The sole problem the movie has is its story and they are a couple moments that do nothing to advance the plot or make any sense at all. Other than that, it's a solid crime caper. 


Set after the Resurrection, a Roman soldier (Joseph Fiennes) is ordered by Pontius Pilate to find the body of Jesus Christ in order to stop an approaching uprising in Jerusalem. 

Christian films have been on a downhill trend lately (and this is coming from someone who IS a Christian FYI), somehow we went from great movies like 'The Ten Commandments', 'Ben-Hur', and 'The Prince of Egypt' to movies such as 'God's Not Dead' and 'Left Behind' (the Nic Cage version). But when a movie like 'Risen' comes along, it's a reminder of how faith based films should be done; non-biased, engaging, and overall entertaining. It also helps that 'Risen' puts the viewer in the perspective of a non-believer, a point of view that most Christian films tend to ignore. Aside from that, it has the element of a manhunt story thrown into it, and Joseph does a fine job as the Roman soldier. Regardless of what you believe in, this is definitely worth a watch. 
The (Disappointingly) Bad 

There are two types of movies in this section; the ones that SHOULD have been good, and the one that we knew was going to suck the instant the trailer dropped. 

'Zoolander 2' 

Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) and Hansel McDonald are back, and this time, they must help Interpol agent Valentina Valencia (Penelope Cruz) investigate a conspiracy after multiple celebrities were assassinated while posing the "Blue Steel" look. 

To the writers, actors, and directors of the future, if you're going to make a sequel to a popular comedy, either make it good or don't make it at all. I understand, it's tough to be a sequel to a cult classic, especially a comedy. Make it too soon and people think it's just to make more money, make it too late and people think it's just to make money. But 'Zoolander 2' is just an unfunny romp that's awkward and clumsy, but if anything good has come out of it, it makes me want to watch the first one. 

'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' 

The parody novel of the Jane Austen classic got an adaptation and, well, the results were less than stellar. Set in 19th century England, the Bennet sisters Elizabeth (Lily James, Jane (Bella Heathcote) are trained by their father to fend off the zombie hoarde. 

First off, and I'm sure plenty of other critics have said this before, this should have been great. One reason why zombie movies are still popular is because they're done in different ways and have different styles. One great way to keep the genre fresh is to integrate a certain time period, giving viewers the chance to see how people from different points in history might have reacted to an undead uprising. Here, it's more in the vein of 'Pride and Prejudice' rather than 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter', and I am NOT a fan of the 'Pride and Prejudice' story. 

'Gods of Egypt' 

Taking inspiration from Egyptian myth, a mortal named Bek (Brenton Thwaites) must team up with the god Horus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) to stop Set (Gerald Butler) from taking over the Egyptian Empire. 

*sigh* do I really need to say anything? I mean, c'mon! If you're going to make an epic about ancient Egyptian deities, at least make it good so that audiences can actually enjoy it. Anyway, I feel sorry for anyone who was involved in this movie, and it's safe to say we have found our first contender for "Worst Movie of 2016". 

For me, February was a bit out of balance in terms of quality for movies, some of them were pretty good, others were terrible, but there was one movie this month that everybody seemed to flock to. To be honest, it deserves the attention. Fans have been waiting for YEARS for this character to get his own movie, and now, it's arrived, and it delivered on every level. 
Movie of the Month: 'Deadpool' 

Is this really a surprise? Between the hype at Comic-Con, the marketing campaign, AND the R rating (14A in Canada), it's no wonder it broke records and received astounding reviews! It was a fun, adult-friendly, action-comedy that proves that if you do a character right, it really pays off. Hopefully we'll see more mature movies from Marvel and DC in the future, and as long as it works for the movie, and not just to bring in the dough, I'm game. 

That's it for Last Month in Movies! Again, sorry for the delay!
