Samsung recently announced in a press release that it will be launching a new version (4.0) of its Smart TV software development kit (SDK) at the 2013 international Consumer Electronics Show (CES), which is being held in Las Vegas from 8–11 January 2013.
Previously the SDK only supported Microsoft’s Windows platform.
The Korean electronics giant also punted its “local cloud developer environment” which it says will let developers on Mac OS collaborate with those using Windows.
Samsung went on to explain that the SDK supports development in HTML5 and allows access to external devices, including Samsung’s own voice- and gesture-based input systems.
