In our age of intensive development of technology, no one is surprised by the fact that even TVs familiar to all of us sometimes no longer differ from computers that were “fancy” by the standards of the recent past. If someone does not understand, then we are talking about "Smart TV". What is this marvel of technology?
You've probably seen advertisements for TVs with 3D, independent Internet connection and the ability to play all modern video formats without the need to connect any hardware players.
This is "Smart TV". What does the term mean when translated into plain Russian? Simply put, these are "smart" TVs that claim to be a universal media center for the home.
What are their benefits
Already according to the brief information that we gave at the beginning of the article, you can get a general idea about them. Of particular note is the option of a direct connection to the network, thanks to which you can watch media content directly from thematic sites.
In addition, there are special programsfor "Smart TV", which can significantly expand their functionality. Since the core of such TVs is often built on a modified Android OS, you can roughly imagine their capabilities.
So, if for some reason your device does not read the file format you need, you can download the player you need. And this is not to mention the fact that, if desired, your favorite browser is easily installed there, which is subsequently synchronized with the browser on a PC or laptop. Thus, "Smart TV" (what it is, you already know) easily turns into a good analogue of a computer for watching movies and surfing the Internet.
In addition, the notorious Skype is often available out of the box, with which you can … talk on TV with friends! Honestly, a few years ago, for such dreams, one could please good doctors with a straitjacket…
Of course, the creators of these wonderful devices provided for the possibility of including such a “TV” in the home local network. Nowadays, almost every at least somewhat savvy user has it, and therefore it is not necessary to talk about its advantages.
But it should be noted that the ability to directly watch the entire huge collection of movies that has accumulated on the hard drive, without the hassle of dragging movies to flash drives, is very attractive!
If you think beforeso how to install "Smart TV" you have to study the manuals for a long time and thoughtfully, then you are mistaken. Nothing like this! Most modern models are able to find a Wi-Fi point on their own, go online without any configuration after connecting an Ethernet cable, and even a child can handle the search and installation of programs.
Yes, even in this barrel of honey there is some fly in the ointment… To begin with, not all films like TV can read on their own. This is especially true for mkv, but there are “stretches” even with ancient avi. In addition, not all models adequately support the installation of third-party applications, and the declared games sometimes do not work.
But this does not detract from all the charms of "Smart TV". What kind of invention you simply need, you have already learned, and therefore you can go to the store!
