Haier, China's top home appliance maker, launched this week a high-definition (HD), streaming media television that can send captured video frames to a network printer.
Zeng Qingyuan, spokesman for Haier TV, said the new TV can capture HD color images and send them directly to a printer.
The TV set, supposedly the first of its type in the world, can share information directly with other digital home appliances such as digital cameras and digital videos.
Haier hopes the TV will help it capture a great market for this new type of TV, said Zeng.
As the world's fourth largest producer of so called white-goods such as refrigerators and air conditioners, it manufactures 15,100 products that are exported to more than 100 countries
Also in this week, China Electronic Chamber of Commerce, together with Haier, issued the standard for streaming media TV.
The establishment of the industrial standard will help consumers by standardizing the technology used for streaming media TV, said Zeng.
Haier's streaming media TV sets account for over 60 percent of the market globally, according to statistics of Sino Market Research Ltd., a leading market research and information agency in China. (Xinhuanet)
