New ways to control your TV

In addition to a significant jump in processing power, the Evolution Kit includes Samsung's trackpad remote control with built-in microphone for voice control. Samsung's Voice Interaction lets you use a natural, conversational style of speaking for searching and controlling the TV.

There's a new look, too. All your content options are organized in the multi-panel Smart Hub on-screen interface. Receive live TV program suggestions via "S Recommendation" from the On TV Panel, rent movies and catch up on shows you may have missed from the Apps panel, and use the Social panel to keep in touch with Facebook friends.

The SEK-1000 Evolution Kit is compatible with these 2012 Samsung Smart TVs: ES7500, ES8000, and ES9000 LED-LCD models, and E7000 and E8000 plasma models.

Note: Make sure your TV has the latest software update installed.

Compatibility: The Samsung SEK-1000 Evolution Kit is compatible with the following 2012 flat-panel TVs (as of 5/21/2013).

  • LED-LCD: ES7000 series, ES7500 series, ES8000 series, and ES9000 series

3 questions already asked

It cannot work with a Sony TV. It will only work with select Samsung TV's. I am not aware of any such upgrade hardware for a Sony TV but that could change so it may be worth a call to an advisor on 1-800-324-9695 to check.
