  • Region Free 4k Blu-ray Players for Global Use

    region free 4k blu-ray playersThe newest Blu-ray technology is here, and it's 4 times the resolution of 1080p HD. 4k resolution, also known as Ultra-HD (UHD), has been in the works for quite some time now. The technology has actually been readily available with TVs for a couple years now but the market for 4k Blu-ray Players and 4k discs was lagging far behind. While several manufacturers released players in the past with 4k upscaling, it wasn't true 4k resolution unless the disc and the Blu-ray player had the actual UHD format.
     
    In the last year, three of the top manufacturers have released true Ultra-HD Blu-ray Players that perform in all their glory to deliver an astounding - and very lifelike - picture of 3840 x 2160 pixels. In unison with your 4k TV, you can now play 4k discs on a 4k Blu-ray player and experience the true, intended quality of Ultra-HD.
     
    What's more than the ever increasing availability of 4k Blu-ray disc titles and 4k Blu-ray Players? Region Free 4k Blu-ray Players. If you're not familiar with the term, let me break it down for you as quickly as possible. All discs are coded to play only in players purchased from the same region where discs are sold. Chinese Blu-ray and DVDs are not compatible with North American or European players and vice-versa. If you want to watch discs from other countries, you'll need a Region Free player. Furthermore, Region Free 4k Blu-ray players are compatible with any electrical voltage, allowing you to use the player anywhere in the world without a voltage converter. They even feature internal Pal/NTSC conversion which eliminates the need to use an external video converter for foreign TVs. In all reality, the Region Free 4k Blu-ray Player is a truly global player. It works universally, with any TV, at any voltage, to play any disc from anywhere in the world.
     
    Although there's only a few true 4k Blu-ray players on the market, it's already possible to purchase the Region Free models from reputable retailers such as ourselves. Our Region-Free 4k Blu-ray Players are not available in stores. Each and every unit has been professionally modified for worldwide voltage and region-free playback.

  • Multisystem TVs Provide Global Flexibility

    multisystem tvs for global flexibilityWhen we think of our TV, we usually don't worry wonder whether or not it will work in another country or a far-away part of the world. In fact, that idea probably never crosses the minds of most people, even though most of us own one or more TVs. Our TV is something that we use in our home for entertainment - there's no need or desire to travel with it, right? Well, not completely.
     
    In this day and age many of us are traveling the world, relocating for retirement, heading overseas for temporary business arrangements, careers, and the like. A growing number of businesses are also attending an increasing number of trade shows in different regions of the world. But where does the multisystem TV fit in to all of this? First you need to understand what a multisystem TV is and how it works.
     
    A Multisystem TV is a TV set that's been professionally modified for global compatibility. When you purchase a TV in your home country, that TV is designed to work with the standards used in that country - from the electrical voltage to the standard color system. If you tried to take your TV overseas - let's say from the US to Europe - you'd be in for a big surprise. Not only does Europe use a different voltage that isn't compatible with your North American TV, they also use a completely different color system. This means you'd need both an external voltage converter and an external video converter just to use your TV. While it might not be a major problem since most people don't travel the world with their TV set, it's a problem that's more common than you might think.
     
    If you're in the market for a new TV but know you'll be relocating overseas for retirement in 6 months, is it smart to buy a new TV or should you wait until you arrive at your destination and purchase one there? If you need a TV for a tradeshow display in China, should you purchase a TV in in China or should you bring one along and have to deal with compatibility issues? If you want a specific model of TV that's not available in your country, should you order one from the US along with a voltage transformer and video converter so it can be used? The answer to all of those questions is no. A multisystem TV is the simple and effective solution to all of these situations.
     
    Multisystem TVs are equipped for any voltage, from 110 to 240 volts. This allows them to be used in any country, in any region of the world. All you have to do is flip a switch to select the proper voltage and the TV is ready to go. They also feature internal video converters which gives them compatibility with any color system (Pal, NTSC, Secam). This ensures that they'll work with the local cable or satellite TV systems in any region of the world. There's no need for the extra cost and messy wires that come with voltage converters and video converters. The Multisystem TV is ready to plug & play, anywhere in the world, at any time.
     
    It's important to note that Multisystem TVs are not available in department stores or popular retailers. These are specialty products that have been professionally modified by experts and are available only from reputable retailers dealing in international electronics. These retailers will generally offer the same brands and models as your favorite electronics stores, with the only difference being that the unit is modified for global use. The other good news is that while there's a slight price increase for a multisystem TV compared to the same non-multisystem model, the price is negligible given the global flexibility. You're buying a unit that can be taken anywhere without any compatibility issues, guaranteed. That is the value of a Multisytem TV. It's all about convenience, flexibility and savings.
     
    As specialists in international electronics and Multisystem TVs for over 35 years, we have a huge selection of the top brand names and the most popular models. Due to our large volume of sales, we're also able to guarantee the lowest prices anywhere. For more information on multisystem TVs or to browse our inventory, visit our website here.

  • Voltage Converters for Germany

    voltage converters for germanyGermany is a beautiful country with a rich culture and many interesting things to see and do. If you're planning an extended visit to Germany and will be living there for awhile, it's important to take note of what you'll be bringing along on your travels. If your list includes any electronic devices or appliances other than a cell phone or laptop, you're going to need a voltage converter to ensure your electronics can be used safely and efficiently.
     
    A voltage converter is a device that converts electrical voltage, either up or down. Since different areas of the world utilize different electrical voltages, electronics from foreign countries are not always compatible. In the case of Germany, you'll need to know that the standard voltage is 220 volts. This means that the wall outlet delivers 220 volts of electricity. Electronics from North America (which are manufactured for 120 volts) are not compatible with Germany's higher voltage. Attempting to use a 120 volt hair dryer for example, could result in a damaged item, a fire, and even dangerous electrical shock. However, there's no need to worry about that because a voltage converter is a safe and effective solution to using foreign electronics in any country.
     
    The voltage converter plugs directly into the electrical outlet and internally converts the electricity from 220 volts down to 120 volts, creating a safe voltage for your electronics. The face of the converter has its own electrical outlets and that's where you'll plug your devices in to be used with the properly converted voltage. This specific type of converter is called a step-down converter because it's actually stepping the voltage down from 220 to 120 volts. There are a variety of types and sizes of voltage converters for Germany, and the one that will best suit your needs is a converter capable of handling sufficient wattage for your electronics or appliances. The wattages available vary from 50 watts up to 25,000 watts. The higher the wattage capability, the higher the price. However, the price doesn't increase drastically.
     
    To determine the wattage that you'll need to check the wattage of your appliances. This can usually be found on the manufacturers label, a instruction manual, or the devices electrical cord. If you have a device like a coffee maker that uses 900 watts, you'll need to purchase a converter with an absolutely minimum of 900 watt capacity. In fact, due to voltage fluctuations and to ensure proper function, it's always recommended to purchase a converter for double the wattage of your device(s). A 1500 watt step-down voltage converter would be a great purchase for a 800 watt North American coffee maker being used in Germany. Since you're dealing with electricity, it's always better to be safe rather than sorry. Aiming for double the necessary wattage is practically a must.
     
    One other thing to note is that most electrical outlets vary from country to country. You'll need to be sure to have the proper plug adapter for Germany so that your converter can be plugged in! If you can't plug it in, you can't use it and then you can't use your electronics. The good news is that anyone who sells voltage converters also sells foreign plug adapters.
     
    Now that you know what you're up against, you can make an informed purchase of a voltage converter for Germany. Remember that you'll need a step-down model with sufficient voltage for your devices. To see a variety of voltage converters for Germany and purchase your own, check out our selection here. Enjoy your travels in Germany!
