The TV, which can also work as a personal computer, will be available in the market next month. Called ‘One Touch PC, One Touch TV’, the Windows 10 televisions come equipped with Microsoft Office, the Windows Store, All Cast app.
“In these changing times, we realised the needs of our consumers of having easy access to technology at their convenience and therefore designed the world’s first hybrid TV cum PC,” Videocon Head of Technology and Innovation Akshay
Dhoot said the company expects to have at least 5 percent sales of H2 period coming from the Windows 10 TV and 3 percent from the Android TV sets.
“Right now, we have launched only 32 and 40-inch models, which are popular in the consumer segment. Depending on the feedback from the market, we would launch 55, 65 and 24-inches also,” said Dhoot.
He added that the company would launch the larger screen sizes of 55 and 65 inches along with one small size of 24 inches by the end of this year after getting the response from the market.
Videocon, which has a network of around 55,000 point of sales, would initially introduce it to around 60 stores located in the upmarket areas and to other places in a phase wise manner.
Speaking on the occasion, Microsoft Director (Windows Business Group) Vineet Durani said Windows 10 has received good response from customers globally with over 110 million downloads.
“With this innovative product, we intend to extend the Windows 10 experience to more users… At Microsoft, it is our constant endeavor to help our partners enter newer categories and create innovative products in order to offer our customers the best user experience at affordable price points,” Durani said. The TV comes with a full-HD display, 2GB of DDR3 RAM, inbuilt Wi-Fi, MHL and HDMI ports, and 16GB of inbuilt storage that can be expanded via microSD card.
A SD card will normally work in a SDHC device (possibly with lower performance). SD cards are in the following capacities 4,8,16,32,64,128,256 512MB and 1GB, 2GB only. Currently mainly 2GB SD cards are being sold.
A SDHC card will not work in a SD device such as a camera or reader. SDHC cards are in the following capacities 4GB, 8GB, 16GB and 32GB
SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) was established to meet the growing demand for HD (High Definition) video and high resolution image recording now used in many SD-enabled devices.
SDHC is the same physical size and shape as standard SD but meets the new SD specification of version 2.0. If the SD card is 4GB or above, it is classed as a SDHC card. Currently, SDHC specifications allow for memory cards of a capacity between 4GB and 32GB.
SDA (SD Card Association) has also established a Speed Class rating (Class 2, 4, 6 and 10) for the standardisation of data transfer speeds (compulsory for SDHC cards)
CLASS 2 – a guaranteed minimum write speed of 2MB/s or higher*
CLASS 4 – a guaranteed minimum write speed of 4MB/s or higher*
CLASS 6 – a guaranteed minimum write speed of 6MB/s or higher*
CLASS 10 – a guaranteed minimum write speed of 10MB/s or higher*
*The minimum speed capability depends on the manufacturer of the host device and model.
All Class 2, Class 4, Class 6 and Class 10 SDHC cards are compatible with SDHC devices. Please note that if the device manual suggests a SDHC card of speed Class 4 as a minimum, the user should install a Class 4, Class 6 or Class 10 (faster) SDHC, NOT a Class 2 card as this may reduce performance of the device.
