Double Whammy For SAMSUNG in EISA Awards

Two innovative products from Samsung Electronics have today won their categories in the prestigious European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA) Awards, demonstrating once again that the South Korean firm is driving the digital technology industry forward.

The two groundbreaking Samsung products to win awards are the SV-DVD1E: Dual Vision, which was named the European Combi Video Player of the Year 2001-2002 and the Photo yepp YVP-P300 which was named European Multi Media of the Year 2001-2002. This is the second year in a row that a Samsung yepp has picked up an EISA award.

Dual Vision is the first ever device to combine a DVD player and VCR and has been widely acclaimed throughout Europe as a masterpiece of design. The judges chose the product because it has the most desirable features, the most satisfying ergonomics, offers the greatest value for money and has features most likely to be appreciated by an enthusiastic public seeking high quality and creative facilities.

This is not the first award this revolutionary product has received as it scooped VCR of the Year in the 2001 Multi Media Totaal Awards earlier this year. The jury recognised the unique benefits that Dual Vision offers saying: "After 25 years of good service, the well-known VCR seems set to come to the end of its life cycle. The recordable DVD player is soon to take its place. But, this is still to come. The Samsung SV-DVD1E gives the VCR a new future by combining VCR and DVD into one product. The user-friendliness of this unique combination is astonishing."
Dual Vision, which can also play audio and video CDs, CD-R and MP3, boasts additional features such as virtual 3D surround sound, dual azimuth 4-head recording playback and user-friendly controls.

The Photo yepp YVP-P300 was cited by the judges as “not another MP3 Player but a new category of multimedia player.” This small, light, multi-functional digital audio/video player has a 120k pixel TFT-LCD display which can reproduce 65,000 brilliant colours.

Capable of storing JPEG, text, MP3 and WMA files, Photo yepp YVP-P300 benefits from a Synchronised Multimedia Integration Language editor which is ideal for producing music clips, studying foreign languages, or recording lectures. Designed for easy portability and able to hold up to 18 digital audio files and 4 hours of lectures, Photo yepp is expected to prove particularly popular within the youth market.

Speaking before the opening of Future@IFA 2001, Dr Daeje Chin, President and CEO of Digital Media Business said: “Dual Vision and Photo yepp YVP-P300 are just two of many amazing new products we have developed in the last year at Samsung. It is thanks to easy-to-use, fun, attractive and innovative products like these that we are moving closer every day to realising our ambition to be the world’s leading manufacturer of consumer electronic products as we move into the digital era.”
