CloudWalker Streaming Technologies, a tech start-up creating digital ecosystems for large format screens directly through smart TV or through conversion of existing TVs into smart TVs, announced the launch of Cloud TV.
CloudWalker developed its own User Interface powered by a Content Discovery Engine (CDE), which curates digital content available on the internet on Free, Premium or ‘Freemium’ basis and also helps discover Apps that can be viewed on TV. Armed with a unique UI which enables users to toggle between Live TV and Digital TV, CloudWalker ultimately aims to enable every home to enjoy digital content on their TV.
Available in curved and flat models with 4K UHD, Full HD and HD resolution, the Cloud TVs have been designed to offer digital content directly on televisions without the customer having to go through changing ports or cumbersome menus. The all-rounder Cloud TV will be exclusively available for purchase on Flipkart from March 3, 2017 .
“Smart TVs are one of the most popular categories on Flipkart, and buyers in India are increasingly looking for immersive home entertainment solutions that offer a combination of superior technology, design and utility, at competitive prices,” said Amitesh Jha, VP – Home, Flipkart.
The device is packed with unique features like the Content Discovery Engine offering a dual experience of watching Live TV and streaming digital content on the same screen (side-by-side) without having to switch between ports. The television has been paired with a ‘super remote’ which has an inbuilt Air mouse plus IR function to quickly navigate all functions of the TV like switching channels, playing content, browsing the internet and other functions with a flick of your wrist. To further make the viewing experience hassle-free, there are many hotkeys with which users can access their favorite functions at a single press.
The CShare App smartly controls and connects Android or IOS mobile phone or tablet to the TV, enabling users to play videos, music and photos from the mobile gallery on TV. They can also mirror the phone to the TV or the TV to the phone and use the phone as a remote, an air mouse, a wireless keyboard or for voice search. “Working on the insight that broadcast linear TV content restricts a viewer’s choice by offering limited content and has pushed viewers away from TV and seek entertainment on their PC / Tabs or phones.
