Over the past 20 years, SMART technology, also referred to as connected tv or hybrid tv, has gone from a patent, to, as Apple CEO Tim Cook put it, “a game changer“. Smart TV’s look the same as
non-smart or “dumb” TV’s, but integrate the internet and web 2.0 into its software, making it much more versatile.
The main attraction to SMART TV’s is its ability to access the internet. But take note, this is in no way a one trick pony. In addition to being able to access a web browser, Smart TV’s (such as the one offered by Hisense) are able to launch video streaming services such as Netflix and Vudu, offer built in games, as well as wireless content sharing.
The ability to access streaming videos has been huge for Canadian RV dealers. In the US, TV antennae’s are able to pick up a multitude a channels, however Canada does not have this luxury. Instead of receiving ten to twenty channels, they are often times lucky to get one, this is where the smart TV comes in. All the user has to do is activate their phone as a Wi-Fi hotspot (no router or modem necessary) and connect the TV to it. After that the camper has everything from every episode of The Office, to movies the whole family can enjoy.
The wireless content sharing is really catching on as well. When on a family trip everyone takes photos and wants to show them off, well gone are the days of huddling around ones phone to see
them. Hisense Smart TV’s have a free app called “Twonky”, and with this free app, as long as the phone and TV are on the same network, showing pictures, videos, and music is as simple as clicking the
picture and having it show up on the TV screen. It really is that simple.
According to a report from the researcher NPD In-Stat, only about 12 million U.S. households have their SMART TVs connected to the Internet, although In-Stat estimates about 25 million U.S. TV households own a set with the built-in network capability. Also, In-Stat predicts that 100 million homes in North America and western Europe will own television sets that blend traditional programs with Internet content as soon as 2016.
When asked about the Smart TV technology, Apple CEO Tim Cook said that after using a Smart TV and then using his regular TV, “When I go into my living room and turn on the TV, I feel like I have gone backwards in time by 20 to 30 years. It’s an area of intense interest.”

This past August 8-11, the RV/MH Hall of Fame hosted the 58th Midwest RV Supershow. Matt Rose, director of recreation vehicles for the Indiana Manufacturing Housing Association-Recreation Vehicle Industry Council (IMHA-RVIC) was optimistic heading into the show. He anticipated 5,000 people to flock to the site, and saw 13 dealers sign on this year, up from 8 at last years show.
Shipment numbers are up about 13% from a year ago
The show drew approximately 4,100 attendees. While this fell short of Rose’s projection, it was still a 10% increase in attendance from last years show, peaking with 1,700 flocking to the show on
Saturday the 10th. With 83% of the nations RV’s coming from the Elkhart area, the show has been a major gateway for dealers to showcase upcoming models and new product innovation, such as Way
Interglobal’s Hisense Smart TV.
Rose was very pleased with the show. “The most important thing, the dealers are very happy,” Rose said. “Nearly everybody there, in terms of the dealers, did very well. They sold a lot of units.” A report from WSBT only helped to enforce that fact, stating that projections have this year’s shipments exceeding 300,000 for the first time since 2007. It would mark the fourth straight year of increased numbers.
