NEWS Fast-growing Chinese consumer electronics firm TCL used IFA 2016 to unveil its X1 QUHD television range to dealers and the media. Combining cutting edge Quantum dot technology, JBL Harman powered speakers and sleek contemporary design, the X1 represents “affordable, premium technology for our core target market of young families,” said Ranjit Gopi, Marketing Director, Head of Overseas Marketing. According to Ranjit Gopi, TCL’s rapid growth across a range of product sectors is based on three pillars: “Investment in technology, investment in brand and investment in innovation. The enhanced viewing experience exhibited by the X1 shows why TCL is the brand of the future. We benefit from being a vertically-integrated company, the only one in China, one of the few in the world.” TCL’s group slogan: "The Creative Life" embodies the company’s aim to be one of the most innovative consumer electronics companies in the world. However TCL’s emphasis on technology, brand and innovation is based on a solid industrial foundation, added Marketing Director Europe, Antoine Salome: “We are worldwide leaders with the manufacturing capacity to deliver on our promise.” Crucial to the X1’s positioning is state-of-the-art design, which is Nordic with a touch of the Orient, said Flemming Pedersen, Vice President of TCL Multimedia and general manager of its Innovation Centre. “The 360 degree curved design is simple, clean with honest materials and no unnecessary detail. The Nordic element gives us a sense of innovation while the Oriental element is about refined, decorative style.” The X1 is as slim as it was possible to be without affecting the picture quality. Meanwhile, the 3-way speaker system from JBL Harman completes the ultimate entertainment experience.
