Samsung HomeSync Overview
Samsung HomeSync is a central hub to act as the focal point for multimedia in your home. HomeSync is a small unit with shared storage to bring HD multimedia content and games to your HDTV and share between compatible devices around the home.
HomeSync runs a customised version of Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and is powered by a 1.7GHz dual-core processor with 2GB of DDR3 RAM, a 1TB hard drive for storage and 8GB of flash storage to hold the operating system and updates for super fast booting and performance. On the back of HomeSync you will find an HDMI port for connecting to an HDTV, 2 USB 3.0 ports for adding further storage and accessories, an S/PDIF optical audio port for connecting to amplifiers and sound systems and a gigabit Ethernet port for hardwiring into your home network.
HomeSync can be customised to support up to 8 personal profiles; each with access to a portion of the 1 terabyte hard drive for their personal storage. Each user can encrypt their data and safeguard it with access passwords so you can keep any data in your storage area separate from others if you want to. Once HomeSync is on your home network you can instantly access it with your compatible Galaxy Smartphone or other wireless device and share information between other users, store your pictures, songs and movies, or view saved information.
HomeSync is powered by a customised version of Android 4.2 Jelly Bean so you can install any apps and games from the Google Play store (even streaming applications such as Spotify and Netflix) directly to the 8GB flash storage for Android. The built in Jelly Bean media player is included can play your movies and the HDMI output means the best Android games can be played right on your big screen.
Samsung AllShare support is included so AllShare enabled Galaxy devioces can connect straight out of the box with no hassle. Samsung Galaxy devices can even use a custom app to turn themselves into a wireless keyboard and remote to control HomeSync - the display acting like a laptop trackpad or using the built in gyroscope to simply move the HomeSync on screen cursor by moving the phone handset. Screen mirroring through HomeSync can display your Galaxy device screen directly to the HDTV also.
