Although when I asked the audience if they had ever bought a Smart TV at home, only one of them raised the hand; even only a few of people were sure they would buy one in near future. Speakers from Lenovo, TCL, Technicolor, Orange France (Beijing) and BesTV at TechNode Collide were giving their positive opinion and advice on the Smart TV industry in China.

David Wei, VP and GM of Mobile Internet Lab & Digital Life Lab of Lenovo gave the keynote speech with the topic Smart TV, the Driving Force of Cloud Computing in Family Life. He defined the Smart TV:

David believes that eventually people is able to use Smart TV to watch TV or internet video, online shopping, play games, read news, social chat etc. He said that Smart TV, like Smart Phone, is not only driven by hardware manufacturers but the service providers, i.e. internet service providers, and content providers (traditional video content and internet video content). In China, a couple of companies including Skyworth, Hisense, TCL and Lenovo have released their first Smart TV products this year and the market will be boosted in 2012. “by 2015, 32.4 millions Smart TV will beat the traditional TV with 54% market share.” David Wei said.
