SUWANEE, Georgia and SARATOGA, Calif., Aug. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Hisense, the fourth largest global TV manufacturer, and Roku Inc. today announced availability of the Hisense Roku® TV H4 Series to the U.S. market. Roku TV is a new simplified smart TV that uses the Roku OS to enable consumers to easily enjoy entertainment whether on-demand, streamed or live. Beginning in late September, the Hisense Roku TV H4 Series will be available in 40-inch, 48-inch, 50-inch and 55-inch models at major national retailers.

New Hisense Roku TV

The Hisense Roku TV H4 Series features a personalized home screen that provides front-and-center access to antenna, broadcast TV, favorite streaming channels, and devices such as game consoles. Roku TV eliminates the pain of flipping through inputs or wading through complicated menus to access entertainment. Consumers will also enjoy access to the Roku Channel Store, which includes more than 1,500 streaming channels that feature 200,000+ movies and TV episodes plus live sports, news, music, kids and family, food, science and tech, fitness, foreign language and so much more.

"Roku is the recognized leader in streaming entertainment to the TV, so integrating its powerful operating system, including access to the most comprehensive streaming channel store available, into a Hisense TV is a revolutionary move," said Peter Erdman, vice president of consumer electronics, Hisense USA. "This deep partnership has allowed us to create the Hisense Roku TV H4 Series which presents consumers with an affordable, simple to use Smart TV."

"Hisense continues to climb in popularity among consumers and is now the fourth largest TV brand in the world," said Jim Funk, senior vice president of product management, Roku. "By combining Hisense's strengths in hardware design, manufacturing and scale with the Roku operating system we've created a new Smart TV that combines more entertainment choices, a fast and intuitive interface, and a very affordable price."

Consumers can navigate their TV experience with either the Roku TV remote control, which has half the buttons of a traditional TV remote, or their mobile device by using the Roku mobile app for iOS, Android or Windows. Consumers can cast popular streaming channels and personal video, photos and music directly from their mobile to the TV.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, will provide an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud.

Fortunately, meaningful and tangible business cases for IoT are plentiful in a broad array of industries and vertical markets. These range from simple warranty cost reduction for capital intensive assets, to minimizing downtime for vital business tools, to creating feedback loops improving product design, to improving and enhancing enterprise customer experiences. All of these business cases, which will be briefly explored in this session, hinge on cost effectively extracting relevant data from ...
Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...
Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Learn how IoT, cloud, social networks and last but not least, humans, can be integrated into a seamless integration of cooperative organisms both cybernetic and biological. This has been enabled by recent advances in IoT device capabilities, messaging frameworks, presence and collaboration services, where devices can share information and make independent and human assisted decisions based upon social status from other entities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Michael Heydt, founder of Seamless...
The IoT's basic concept of collecting data from as many sources possible to drive better decision making, create process innovation and realize additional revenue has been in use at large enterprises with deep pockets for decades.

WebRTC: together these advances have created a perfect storm of technologies that are disrupting and transforming classic communications models and ecosystems. In his session at WebRTC Summit, Cary Bran, VP of Innovation and New Ventures at Plantronics and PLT Labs, provided an overview of this technological shift, including associated business and consumer communications impacts, and opportunities it may enable, complement or entirely transform.
There are so many tools and techniques for data analytics that even for a data scientist the choices, possible systems, and even the types of data can be daunting. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Harrold, Global CTO for Big Data Solutions for EMC Corporation, showed how to perform a simple, but meaningful analysis of social sentiment data using freely available tools that take only minutes to download and install. Participants received the download information, scripts, and complete end-t...
For manufacturers, the Internet of Things (IoT) represents a jumping-off point for innovation, jobs, and revenue creation. But to adequately seize the opportunity, manufacturers must design devices that are interconnected, can continually sense their environment and process huge amounts of data. As a first step, manufacturers must embrace a new product development ecosystem in order to support these products.
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, discussed how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the dat...
When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
