The French brand Thomson returns to the market which has just brought a new and cheap LED TV to the market, the Thomson Alpha 32 with Linux based platform, several integrated streaming services, and 30W audio.
The immense Indian continent is often used by hi-tech companies, even by those active in providing services (just think of the low cost subscription of Netflix for mobile devices) and not products, as a test bed: in the smart TV sector , the market in question has seen brands differently known for other products take the field, as in the case of Nokia and Motorola, or a return to the limelight of brands that had been lost track, as in the case of Blaupunkt and Thomson.
The French brand, controlled by Technicolor SA, has returned to rely on the local licensee Super Plastronics Pvt to announce the arrival on the market, through the Flipkart e-commerce, of a new low cost LED smart TV, the Thomson Alpha 32 ( 935 x 440 x 110 mm for 5 kg), available for purchase since last June 26 at a price of approximately 121 euros (9,999 rupees).
The new Thomson smart TV (model number 32Alpha007BL), inserted in the Alpha (α) series, adopts very narrow bezels on 3 sides, in the name of a very elegant design: the lower edge is a bit of an exception, used to place the 30W speaker, for a defined surround sound, immersive. The 32-inch panel used, characterized by an aspect ratio of 16: 9, is of low resolution, or an HD Ready (corresponding, in particular, to 1.366 × 768 pixels), with excellent viewing angles (178 ° ) in favor of those who are not actually in front of the TV, but a little to the side.
The peak brightness of the Thomson Alpha 32 smart TV is 400 nits, while the refresh rate, from 60 Hz, does not make it ideal for gaming: it can also be wall-mounted, on the back it has several ports, including two USB, a jack for headphones, and three HDMI.
Coordinating everything is a processor with four A35 cores and a Mali G31 GPU that leverages 512 GB of RAM and 4 GB of storage for the smart, Linux-based platform, which integrates streaming services (which can be used thanks to Wi-Fi a 2.4 GHz) such as Prime Video, YouTube, Zee5, Sony Liv, and Eros now. Finally, other contents can be routed, perhaps from the smartphone, through support for the Miracast wireless transmission standard.
