HISENSE DEBUTS SLIM WIFI AND BLUETOOTH® SOUND BARS AT CES

Las Vegas, NV – January 6, 2014 — Hisense, an innovation leader in flat screen TV performance and form factor efficiency, today introduced complementary Bluetooth® and WiFi sound bars at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show (CES). The move provides consumers with a high performing, add-on audio solution for screens 39-inches and larger that is as good-looking as it is easy to install.

“As televisions have become slimmer, the need for dedicated audio systems has become more pronounced. This is a challenge that all manufacturers have faced and one that we are addressing comprehensively and elegantly with our sound bars that are debuting here at CES,” said Jonathan Frank, Vice President of Marketing, Hisense USA. “Hisense makes gorgeous UHD and SMART TVs for the home. It only makes sense to offer an audio equivalent – a truly elevated full sensory experience when playing detailed video games or watching high-impact movies and shows.”

The sound bars feature multiple drivers to accommodate full range audio and deep bass reproduction, and include analog, digital and HDMI-ARC connectivity options for easy hook-up. DTS TruSurround HD™ audio processing with up to eight presets delivers a superior audio experience for both movies and music across all three models.

The mid-level and entry-level models include optical and Bluetooth capability, perfect for the H7, H6, and the H5 series TVs. The high-end model comes with HDMI capability, and is Bluetooth equipped, DTS, DOLBY® Digital, and a wireless subwoofer for powerful, bass pounding sound. The slim metal design is carved out of high-end aerospace grade aluminum for a sleek lightweight look with excellent industrial design. The high-end sound bar works best with the H9, H8 and H7 models.

Look for the entire family of sound bars late 2014. Pricing to be announced later this year.

The Hisense sound bars will be on display at the Hisense booth 7243 during CES, January 7-10, 2014.

WorldStage Offers Viz:140, Merging Live Tweeting and Professional Presentations

Viz:140, the professional software tool that captures, curates, visualizes and presents social media on any number of displays, is available for rental exclusively through WorldStage Inc. Viz:140 (formerly called CommuniType) was developed by Pretty Extreme Inc. to give presenters, party planners and content producers ultimate control over social media content. Much more than a media server, Viz:140 allows users to program a show with any combination of data sources, filter that data into meaningful content, then visualize it onscreen in customizable and unique ways.

With the ubiquity of Twitter, the need to bring Tweets into the presentation environment and provide immediate, engaging media sharing to large audiences and visitor groups is greater than ever.

“Making Twitter beautiful is our goal,” says Shelly Sabel, director of design at WorldStage. “Other visualizers are very basic: they simply display the font that’s native to Twitter but Viz:140 makes the content exciting. It encourages engagement with event participants and is a great tool for experiential marketing, big conferences and trade shows.”

Viz:140 developer Josh Silverman has made the visually regimented Twitter “scalable and designable,” notes Sabel. Content can be branded and customized or users can select graphical themes – font styles, colors, backgrounds, images – created by WorldStage. “We have created templates for plug-and-play usage, which can be tailored for a variety of presentation modes” she explains. “We can also embed video content as a background behind incoming Twitter and Instagram feeds. In addition, this software can archive hashtags and output them as a word cloud. Viz:140 is a very flexible tool.”

Viz:140′s node-based display system can drive any number of displays and offers an integrated content production and control interface. In addition to Twitter feeds, data input modules receive inputs from SMS, email, RSS, files, network folders, Instagram and PollEverywhere.com.

“The direct link with Instagram is cool,” says Sabel. “If an image captured at an event has a hashtag it can be discovered or geotagged. And, we now have the ability to connect with PollEverywhere and create real-time audience interaction and response.” VIZ:140′s real-time functionality immediately transforms poll data into compelling bar charts, pie charts and backgrounds that engage event participants.

Viz:140 has been used for corporate events large and small; the system’s flexibility makes it an excellent choice for integration with an A/V system of any size or complexity.

Recently, WorldStage supplied Viz:140 to George P. Johnson for a dealer meeting in Chicago, to InVision Communications for Oracle Open World in San Francisco, and a number of recent HBO premiere events across the country. The system is available exclusively for rental through WorldStage Inc.

WorldStage Inc., the company created by the merger of Scharff Weisberg Inc. and Video Applications Inc., continues a thirty-year legacy of providing clients the widest variety of entertainment technology coupled with conscientious and imaginative engineering services. WorldStage provides audio, video and lighting equipment and services to the event, theatrical, broadcast and brand experience markets nationally and internationally.
