PARIS, le 12 juillet 2016 /PRNewswire/ — « The world is looking at me » (Le monde me regarde). La veille de la finale de l’Euro 2016 de l’UEFA, un événement qui a retenu l’attention du monde entier, son sponsor Hisense, le plus grand fabricant de téléviseurs de Chine en termes de volume de ventes, a rempli sa promesse de lancer à Paris la première télévision cinéma laser à grand angle 4K au monde, bénéficiant d’une attention particulièrement importante.

Les télévisions LCD à rétroéclairage LED dominent à présent le marché, avec leurs écrans plus grands et vraiment plus onéreux. Le prix des téléviseurs LCD 4K 100 pouces est généralement de 600 000 yuans (env. 90 000 USD) par unité. La télévision laser lancée par Hisense, qui réalise ce que le monde n’a pas réussi à faire grâce à 217 technologies brevetées, des moteurs optiques extraordinaires, une lentille haute résolution et des processus de fabrication haute précision, apporte une clarté et une saturation des couleurs qui atteignent ou dépassent celles des téléviseurs LCD. Il est d’autant plus choquant de constater que la télévision de Hisense coûte à peine plus de 10 000 USD par unité, 1/10 du prix de vente des téléviseurs LCD pour la même taille d’écran. Le projecteur laser LCOS 4K déployé l’année dernière par la société japonaise Sony coûtait 50 000 USD par unité.

Le vice-président de Hisense Group, Lin Lan, a déclaré avec enthousiasme lors d’un discours que « le but ultime des technologies est de recréer des avantages en termes de coûts ». Permettre à chaque famille d’acquérir un home cinema est le rêve de la société ainsi que la stratégie d’Hisense pour jouer un rôle de premier plan parmi les fabricants de téléviseurs. Une fois que ce rêve sera atteint, Hisense entend devenir le leader incontesté sur le marché mondial des téléviseurs couleur.

PARIS, July 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — “The world is looking at me.” On the eve of the UEFA Euro 2016 Final, an event that has attracted much attention worldwide, its sponsor Hisense, China’s largest TV manufacturer in terms of sales volume, fulfilled its promise to debut the world’s first 4K wide-angle laser cinema television in Paris, garnering a huge amount of attention.

LED backlight LCD televisions now dominate the market, with their larger, decidedly more expensive screens. 100-inch 4K LCD televisions are typically priced at 600,000 yuan (approx. US$90,000) per unit. The laser television launched by Hisense, achieving what the world hasn’t achieved with 217 patented technologies, outstanding optical engines, high-resolution lens and high-precision manufacturing processes, delivers lightness and color saturation achieving or surpassing those of LCD TVs. More shockingly, the Hisense television is priced at just over US$10,000 per unit, 1/10 the sales price of LCD TVs with same size screens. The 4K LCOS laser projector rolled out earlier by Japan-based Sony are priced at US$50,000 per unit.

Hisense Group global vice president Lin Lan said excitedly in a speech that “the ultimate goal of technologies is to recreate cost advantages.” Making it possible for every family to afford a home cinema is the company’s dream and strategy for Hisense to take a leading position among television makers. Once the dream is achieved, Hisense expects to become the undisputed leader in the world’s color TV market.

Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa to visit Nkosi’s Haven in Johannesburg

Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa, will pay a visit to the Nkosi’s Haven village in Johannesburg on Wednesday, 13 July 2016, at 8h00, to launch the 5-Day countdown towards the AIDS2016 International Conference scheduled for Durban International Convention Centre from 18-22 July 2016.

Nkosi’s Haven is named after Nkosi Johnson one of the youngest victims of the HIV epidemic who addressed the International AIDS Conference held in Durban in the year 2000 and died in 2001 from the disease. The haven was established with the objective of providing a “safe and nurturing home environment for mothers, children and orphans left destitute by HIV/AIDS”.

South Africa is poised to host on behalf of the African continent the 21st International AIDS Conference, under the theme, “Access Equity Rights – Now”, with over 12 000 delegates from 180 countries around the world expected to attend the Conference. The Conference is organised under the auspices of the International AIDS Society.

The opening of the Conference on Monday, 18 July will coincide with the International Nelson Mandela Day. In this regard, the South African Government delegation will in honour of the later former President Mandela communicate the message that “it is in our hands” to create an HIV-free generation.

The government however recognises that the challenge to create an HIV-Free Generation will require the commitment and support of the international community, consistent investment in research and development that could lead to new options for vaccine and a functional cure for HIV.

South Africa is expected to utilise the Conference to highlight its globally acclaimed national programme and share with the international community lessons and challenges deriving from its efforts aimed at tackling the HIV and TB.
