Samsung Electronics Philippines Corporation (SEPCO) set an exciting course for continued growth in the Philippines today as the annual Samsung AV Roadshow opened at the SMX Convention Center. Samsung unveiled its breakthrough line up of Full HD 3D solutions that will be available to the Philippine market later this month. The company also showcased innovative new offerings in the areas of digital imaging and audio-visual technology.
Before hundreds of media and partners, a team of executives led a showcase of Samsung’s 2010 product line-up, highlighted by the company’s award-winning solution of full HD 3D entertainment products announced earlier this year.
Samsung’s executives also discussed strategic initiatives and exciting new products to the digital imaging and audio-visual divisions. These are critical emerging areas of growth for Samsung to build on its 2010 success. Samsung also reaffirmed its commitment to the environment both in terms of innovative new product features and new green initiatives.
“Samsung overcame a difficult economy in 2009” said KC Park, President SEPCO. “In 2010, we must continue to tap into the fervent passion for consumer electronics in this region by providing our consumers a relentless stream of new products based on technology, superior design and service.”
Creating the Future of Home Entertainment
Last year, in 2009, Samsung created the LED TV category, selling more than 2.6 million units worldwide. This year Samsung is breaking new ground in 3D. This month, Samsung will be the first to deliver to the Philippines a comprehensive 3D TV and AV product line-up, which includes a range of Full HD 3D televisions (LED, LCD and plasma), 3D Blu-ray, 3D home theater systems, 3D glasses and even, 3D content.
Roadshow attendees have had the opportunity to take a look at the rich features of Samsung’s new LED TV line-up - the C7000, C8000 and C9000 LED TVs. All of Samsung’s Full HD 3D products possess Samsung’s unique built-in 3D processor and emitter that enables compatibility with multiple 3D standards. Samsung televisions and Blu-ray players will feature Internet@TV, which provides access to the world’s first HDTV-based application store, Samsung Apps. Applications are available from leading brands such as YouTube, Twitter and Gameloft.
Samsung is offering Full HD 3D content on a number of fronts. This will be available primarily from Samsung’s exclusive partnership with Dreamworks, as announced earlier this year. To get customers started, the 2009 blockbuster “Monsters vs. Aliens” in 3D will be exclusively bundled with all Samsung Full HD 3D televisions.
