Samsung Multiscreen SDK is an all-new SDK that allows
developers take advantage of Samsung’s market leadership in
smartphones and smart TVs. 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.
A streamlined version of the Samsung Mobile SDK is now
available. The SDK now combines 10 individual packages, including the
latest groundbreaking S Pen, Media Control, Professional Audio, and
Gesture, into a single integrated SDK for easier overall development.
Samsung has partnered with Unity Technologies to create the Samsung
Multiscreen Gaming SDK. It is a gaming engine built on top of the
Samsung 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 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.
The Samsung KNOX SDK provides security and management
enhancements, which enables enterprises to support both
Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) without compromising either corporate
security or employee privacy.
