SANYO launches energy-efficient 24-inch LCD TV in the Middle East
SANYO, a leading company in providing eco-friendly energy, environment and lifestyle applications, has announced the Middle East launch of its latest 24-inch LCD TV - Vizon LCD 24-K40, which can reduce power consumption by 30 per cent compared to conventional 21” CRT televisions, thereby complementing SANYO’s thrust to synergize its core technologies to create solutions for a sustainable earth.
Designed with SANYO’s signature ‘Simple-Slim-Stylish’ concept, the LCD 24-K40 comes in a choice of high black glossy/wine red/pearl white surface finish with a 24-inch high definition (HD) panel and built-in hidden speakers. The model, which is powered by the new generation Vizon Engine, offers key features such as easy to connect plug and play mode, an icon menu for easy navigation and adjusting personal settings, sport mode, hotel mode, child lock and an auto shut-off system. The TV, which operates under an amazingly small wattage of less than one watt in stand-by mode, is also equipped with a High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI), PC input mode and DVD component input terminal. SANYO also pointed out that when the ECO mode setting in the LCD 24-K40 is turned on, the TV can save power consumption by an extra 30 per cent with the back-light control system.
Takeshi Hirao, Vice President of SANYO Electric Co. Japan and Chairman, SANYO Gulf, said: “The Middle East region is currently witnessing an increased demand for LCD TV models, replacing old CRT TVs. This demand is accompanied with strong consumer preferences like high definition image resolutions and low energy consumption. SANYO seeks to capitalise on this trend with the launch of the LCD 24-K40, which not only produces high definition images but also ensures considerable power saving. Moreover, the new model reflects SANYO’s ‘Think GAIA’ brand vision of combining the power of natural sustainability with SANYO’s pioneering technology. Our continued ability to bring out innovative yet eco-friendly electronic products demonstrates our steadfast commitment to preserve and save our environment.”
The new LCD TV, which uses AI image processing for optimum resolution, has a built in frequency synthesizer tuning system for easy fine tuning and configuration. Audio features for the 24-K40 include audio status memory, bass expander and balance, AV stereo connection (for DVD and Blu-Ray devices) and a sound equalizer.
The LCD 24-K40 will be available across the Middle East from May 2010 at a retail price of USD 245.
SANYO's diverse range of products and services, which include consumer electronics, home appliances, photovoltaic systems, HVAC/R equipment, digital imaging devices, personal navigation systems, home appliances, and electronic components, among others, are divided into the three domains of energy, ecology and electronics. The company synergizes its core technologies to promote its unique “Think GAIA” brand vision of creating solutions for a sustainable earth.
