LAS VEGAS (CES Booth #9826), Jan. 9, 2012 – The 2012 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) will showcase a new line of televisions, audio products and technologies by Haier. As the Official HDTV of the NBA, Haier will display connected televisions as well as key new design features and introduce the expanded line of audio solutions.
“As an international leader in the consumer electronics and home appliance industries, there are few platforms that allow us to showcase new, innovative products to a global audience the way that CES does,” says Douglas Lane, president of the Digital Products Group for Haier America. “This year, we are thrilled to highlight new trends in design as well as technology including items like integrated awarding winning Sonic Emotion 3D sound.”
Haier will display the 65” 3D EV Series with a new thin bezel design that provides a truly immersive viewing experience with a virtually edgeless picture. A 55” model will hit the US market in 2012. The ultra slim cabinet design provides a sleek, polished look that makes these units the perfect centerpiece for your home theater. 2D to 3D conversion creates a 3D-like effect when viewing non-3D video.
Haier will display the award winning Smart Home UI on the new EV Series 3D television.
Smart Home UI allows straightforward access to different functions at the same time while watching TV. There is total connectivity and interactivity between the internet, television, home electronics and appliances making it possible to operate and check the functionality of all compatible electrical appliances, turning the TV into the centerpiece of the household. It features intuitive navigation with the double-sided QWERTY remote control; one side of the remote allows access to key TV functions, the other side has an intuitive keypad for easy access to different available content and allows you to communicate instantly with friends. This technology received the Communication Design Award at IFA 2011.
