Wiselink is a technology that is built into several models of Samsung large-screen TVs. Wiselink is accessed through USB ports that are built into the TV. Digital storage devices such as flash drives are plugged in directly through the port. In addition to media storage, other digital media can be accessed through Wiselink from a personal computer. You can switch your TV into Wiselink mode and access its features through menu options displayed on the screen. The functions vary between the original Wiselink and newer versions and also might be different depending on the TV model.


You can view movies from your PC using USB 2.0 with Wiselink because this version supports MPEG4 (video) file formats. Home movies can be downloaded from digital camera recordings directly to flash storage devices and viewed on your TV without the use of audio and video cables, which can be inconvenient because of the locations of the jacks on some TVs. This feature also eliminates the need to burn movies on DVD. In addition, movies or TV shows that have been purchased on DVD can be copied directly to a memory stick and put into the USB port for viewing.

Photographs and Slide Shows

Wiselink supports JPEG formats, which allows photographs and slide shows to be viewed and even organised by date and time. A unique feature of this option is the ability to organise these files by colour or composition of the photograph. The interface displays a menu that lets you navigate settings. These settings gives you the option to perform such tasks as zoom and rotate when playing slide shows.


The USB port also can be used to easily access the multichannel surround-sound system that is equipped with newer TV models. Music is stored on the USB Mass storage drive, which supports MP3 audio files. Because of the sound quality, no other external speaker systems are needed to listen to the music files.
