Mr. Ashfaq Khan, Regional Sales Manager, SANYO Gulf FZE, “With the summer season already here, the new line of XACTI waterproof dual cameras promises greater flexibility and mobility for taking photos and videos practically anywhere, making it the perfect all-weather photo and video companion for holiday adventures and other leisure activities. What makes these cameras even more attractive is that they deliver high-definition images and videos, capturing every precious moment in vivid colour and in full detail.”
“Moreover, the VPC-CA9 and the VPC-WH1 have been developed according to the most stringent environmental standards in line with SANYO's 'Think GAIA' brand vision, which offers a fusion of sustainability and SANYO's pioneering technology. Our ability to provide today’s consumers with eco-friendly, innovative technology solutions shows our steadfast commitment to help preserve and save our environment,” Ashfaq added.
Leveraging its sophisticated technological expertise, SANYO has developed built-in complex-shaped components for the VPC-WH1 and the VPC-CA9 that allow high-dimensional accuracy. Exemplifying SANYO's advanced technology, the waterproof cameras' microphone and speaker parts are covered with "porous sheet," which allows sound to pass through but is highly resistant to water.
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.
