Group optimistic of LED television demand

THE Motibhai Group is optimistic that growth in the local market for one of its latest gadgets will happen, but slowly.

More people of all ages and background are now getting more techno-savvy and trendy, thus anticipation for high demands of its latest Sony BRAVIA LED (light-emitting diode) television — similar to a LCD screen but with LED back-lights.

Motibhai Group marketing and business development manager Abraham Gomes, in his presentation at the launch of the SONY BRAVIA range of LED television at Prouds in Suva on Thursday night said, LED TV sales in South East Asia grew to 44.5 per cent from 17.2 per cent from last July to July this year. That, he said showed the demand for LED TV in the market.

"In Fiji, in fact, it is not going to be long where this kind of growth is going to happen. It will happen but not fast. There are people out there who are buying these things," Mr Gomes said.

He said the LED TV, made available in 24 inch, 32 inch and 40 inch, had five key benefits. He said the new product had a 50 per cent lesser power consumption; it had a longer lifespan — up to 34.2 years if the television was operated on eight hours a day for instance; it was lighter and slimmer design; and a sharp picture quality — recommended for those who love watching sports on television. "This LED TV produces less heat, which is the contributor to shortened life span of the screen," Mr Gomes said.
