I'm afraid Samsung doesn't guarantee compatibility with third-party devices.

So it seems better to ask the maker of the cam if he guarantees compatibility with your TV (so you can return it if it turns out to be incompatible) than the other way around. If you can't reach the maker ask the sales person in the shop.

samsung.com for contact information. As this can be specific to the model and country I can't answer except that no one is reporting any success other than the Samsung camera.

Some folk need an explanation why these TVs and such are unlike a PC. That is, it's not a PC and no OS that we can install drivers, etc.
