"Visson entering the market with full force… Solid backing by VIA…"
"With the current trends in convergent technologies, car navigation systems and digital TV solutions is undoubtedly the way to go, and we are determined to enter the market with full force," said Sherry Tsai, Sales Director for Visson Technologies. "As a recognized member of the VIA Technologies Group, we receive all the benefits and a strong backing from our corporate business partner, enabling us to fully utilize our strength as a dynamic middle -sized innovation company," Tsai added. "Essentially, Visson is about innovation, creativity and passion - our driving force is to take on innovation challenges that the mere -manufacturer crowd steer away from, and being at the absolute forefront of technology. In addition, we aim to have a global conscience in doing so."

Combining Navigation with DVB -T
By combining DVB -T digital TV and a CD/MP3/VCD/DVD player with a navigation system, Visson's A2000T promises to offer the ultimate in -car entertainment experience, enabling motorists to watch DTV, see a DVD, and simultaneously utilize a navigation system along their journey. The navigation system benefits motorists from a road -safety and convenience point of view, by providing the best routes to destinations, pointing out obstacles, and offering numerous other functions. GPS will play a significant role in future automotive generations, similar to its role in aviation technology today.
