Samsung Smart TV SDK

The Samsung Smart TV SDK is a tool for developers to create and edit Samsung Smart TV applications.

The SDK offers three main benefits:

  • easy code editing,
  • easy visual editing
  • fast packaging.

It allows you to inspect and edit the code of the applications, and provides a click-and-drag visual editing environment for designing and arranging the visual aspects of the applications.

Currently at version 4.0 (Jan 2013) which provides the ability to develop applications for the 2013 Smart TV Platform. The tools include an Eclipse-based application editor, Visual Editor, debugger, and Smart TV Emulators for current and past TV platforms. The SDK is available for Windows, MAC and Linux operating systems.

3Gear Systems have recently announced the release of their SDK for adding gestures to applications using a pair of Microsoft Kinect devices. This is a proof of concept for their technology rather than a finished device.
