They made the announcement in conjunction with DirecTV, whose RVU enabled HR34 Home Media Center HD-DVR was launched late last year. The two companies first showcased the technology at last year's CES. RVU works by means of a server, which in this case is part of the DirecTV DVR, which provides a UI to networked TV clients.
Last year Samsung introduced the D6000 line of Smart TVs (D6000, D6400, D6420), which can be firmware upgraded with RVU support. Now it seems a RVU client will be a standard feature on all future (Smart TV) models.
Stephen Goldstein, vice president of Samsung Electronics America, said in a statement:
Many homes today have more than one TV to cater to the different needs of everyone in the family. By working with a leading provider like DIRECTV, we?re able to offer consumers enhanced convenience in access so they can enjoy the content they desire from any room in the home, any time they choose
