a new television
Since the invention of television, Thomson multimedia has offered
consumers the best picture and sound technologies.
Television is on the eve of a major change. With flat displays,
high-definition, and digital sound, television offers unparalleled
picture and sound quality. With digital broadcasting and interactive
televisions, television may receive thousands of information
programs from which viewers they may choose. With interactivity, the
TV experience is transformed to enable all of us to interact with
programs and access new information and leisure services.
To meet these needs, Thomson multimedia has joined forces to make television more personal and interactive with a new advanced RCA DIRECTV system equipped with the new Microsoft UltimateTV.
In addition the Group has launched LCOS (i.e Liquid Crystal and Silicon) TV sets in the U.S which are offering top picture quality in a flat 16x9 screen at a competitive price. This new technology enables Thomson multimedia to develop a new line of display products offering progressive-scan digital high definition. Finally Thomson multimedia has equipped numerous TV sets with the electronic program technology from GEMSTAR.
