Consumer Electronics Brand Expands Into IT Market
CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif., Aug. 30, 2004 - Westinghouse Digital Electronics, dedicated to making digital entertainment devices available to mainstream consumers, today announced that its line of 15 -, 20 -, 27 - and 30 -inch LCD TVs are now available nationwide through Tech Data Corporation's Digital Environments Specialized Business Unit (SBU).
"This alliance opens up new avenues for a traditional consumer electronics brand like Westinghouse to extend its reach to IT resellers and CE integrators, and we are committed to bringing premium, TV -grade LCD products into these new markets," said Douglas Woo, president of Westinghouse Digital.
"The convergence effect between IT and CE encompasses products, channels and producers, offering more crossover opportunity. Until now, most of the crossover has been IT companies entering the CE market. Westinghouse is now the leader in reversing that trend as consumer electronics enter the IT market with technologically superior LCD products that deliver the higher brightness and faster response times that the new convergent applications like gaming, Internet streaming and multimedia presentations demand," Woo said.
Tech Data is a leading global provider of IT products, logistics management and other value -added services. The distributor's Digital Environments SBU tailors its products and services offering to resellers targeting the converging IT and consumer electronics market.
"There is tremendous opportunity for resellers targeting the growing demand for LCD displays in both the residential and business markets," said Karl Werner, director of Tech Data's Advanced Technologies Group. "Westinghouse Digital's LCD displays are suitable for a wide array of audio/video solutions for use in homes, offices, airports and restaurants."
