  • Multisystem Curved Screen TVs: A New Level of Depth

    multisystem curved screen tvMany of us consider our home theater to be an important part of our home. With the launch of curved "flatscreen" TVs a couple years ago, interest in this new technology spiked rather quickly. While curved screen smart TVs are not so "new" anymore, many of us don't really understand the benefits of the design. Let's take a look at what a curved screen offers, and finally, why you need to consider a Multisystem Curved Screen Smart TV.
     

    Better Depth and Immersion

    The curved screen design pulls the sides of the picture slightly closer to your eyes. This wrap-around effect helps the image seem more deep and lifelike by putting more of the image into your peripheral field of view. In some ways, it provides a look similar to 3D. While nothing is actually protruding from the screen, the picture itself is contoured towards you, delivering the increased perception of depth. Some models of curved screen TVs even have partial adjustments to the contrast in strategic areas of the screen to further improve the depth.
     

    Improved Contrast, Larger Field of View

    Due to their concave design, curved screen TVs naturally focus more light towards your eyes, improving contrast by up to 1.5 times. Flat screen TVs with the same level of contrast cannot focus the same amount of light into the eye, leaving the curved design as the definitive victor in the contrast department. The filed of view is also improved, but this is an issue of perspective. The curved screen produces the illusion of a wider screen, even if compared to an equally sized flat screen TV. A wider screen gives a larger picture, and this is what we see when viewing a curved screen.
     

    Uniformity

    The curved design seems to mesh better with the rounded shape of our eyes. The mellow curved shape provides improved sharpness and consistency, even at the edges and the very corners of the screen. With flat screen TVs, we sacrifice consistency that we never really knew we were missing. Once you try comparing a picture between a 65 or 70-inch flat screen and curved screen, it becomes quickly apparent that the curved screen delivers a better, clearer, more intense and higher focus image for our eyes.
     

    Multisystem Curved Screen TVs

    Why multisystem and what is it? Multisystem TVs are not limited by voltage or color formats and can be used anywhere win the world. Functional with any voltage from 110 to 240 volts, the multisystem curved screen TV offers better flexibility for global use and universal compatibility. With internal color conversion and tuners for PAL, NTSC and Secam, there's no doubt that a multisystem model is your best bet.
     
    Multisystem Curved Screen TVs are professionally modified units that are not available in major retailers or department stores. The multisystem versions are available in nearly any brand and model, but must be bought from a retailer who specializes in this technology. With over 35 years of experience in multisystem electronics and TVs, we're just one of the many trusted resources for purchasing a multisystem curved screen TV.

  • Global Electronics for International Use: What You Need to Know

    global electronics for international useAll electronics are not created equal. In fact, around the world - even if you purchase the same brand and model - there are various differences in both construction and performance. Not always visible to the naked eye, these differences can make or break your ability to utilize your electronics in other parts of the world.
     

    Most Electronics are NOT Universal

    While it might not be common knowledge to the average person, the truth is that most electronics are not designed for global use. From the different standards in voltage to the multiple audio & video formats used in various countries, there are many obstacles to overcome if you plan to purchase or use your electronics in other countries. With the exception of laptops - which usually feature a power adapter that works with any voltage - nearly all electronics are only useful in the country or region where they were purchased. While it's possible to use your devices in other regions of the world, it will usually require expensive converters, adapters, and a lot of messy cables.
     

    The Voltage Problem

    Voltage is just one of the many issues with electronics. The voltage problem also applies to personal devices and kitchen appliances; anything that uses electricity. While North America uses 120 volts, Europe uses 220 volts. This difference in voltage means that your US electronics will receive an overdose of electricity if used in Europe (which is very dangerous), while European-bought electronics won't have enough electricity to function properly. Either situation can result in damaged devices, fire, or even electrical shock.
     

    Color Systems and Formatting Issues

    Color systems are another issue, and something that we would hardly ever think to consider. TVs and blu-ray players use specific formatting to encode and decode the information that displays the image. The 3 main color systems around the world are PAL, NTSC, and Secam. Each color system is specific and it's not possible to use a PAL TV with a NTSC Blu-ray Player. PAL, NTSC, and Secam models are respectively manufactured and sold to regions that utilize those formats and are not cross-compatible without expensive converters.
     

    Disc Playback and Region Coding Problems

    This issue is similar to the rest but it only applies to DVD and Blu-ray Players. There are 3 different "regions" of Blu-ray and 7+ regions for DVD discs. In each region, the players are coded to read discs that originate from that region only. For example, Region 1 DVDs are only compatible with region 1 DVD Players. The reason for this is mainly to prevent copyright issues, minimize pirating, and to ensure timely release dates and fair prices in various parts of the world. Another aspect is political and religious environments in which much censorship demands that certain versions of media are not available, especially if they are deemed to violent or provocative.
     

    How to Solve it all?

    There is a simple solution to all of the challenges faced by traveling, purchasing, and using electronics from around the world. After all, it should be easy enough to simply plug & play without the headaches, right? Actually, it's much easier than you think.
     
    Multisystem electronics, global electronics and region-free players unlock the universal potential of your devices to guarantee compatibility regardless of where you are in the world. Specially, professionally modified and not available in major retailers, these units feature hardware/software advancements that give them the global flexibility and functionality that the manufacturers should have given you since the start.
     
    Multisystem TVs feature updated internal components and specialized software that allows them to work with any color system. They can also work with any voltage - all you need to do is flip a switch on the TV to change from 120 to 220 volts. This lets you use your TV with a Blu-ray Player from anywhere in the world, and to utilize the local cable TV without a mess of extra wiring and pricey video conversion gadgets. Region-Free DVD and Region-Free Blu-ray Players allow you to play discs from anywhere, on any TV (even non-multisystem TVs), with any electrical voltage from 110 to 240 volts. Universal personal devices such as curling irons and razors are compatible with any voltage, relieving you from any worries about a fire or damaging your device.
     
    The best part about these global, multisystem, and region-free electronics is that you can choose from your favorite brands and the latest models. It's important to find an experienced retailer who specializes in these modified units because they are not available in department stores or major retailers. They are professionally modified to give you the global flexibility that you deserve and most of them feature the same manufacturer's warranty.
     
    With over 35 years of experience in global electronics and international relocation, we're an authority on traveling with electronics. We carry a wide selection of electronics and appliances intended for global use, as well as hard-to-find 220 volt electronics from the top brand names.

  • Consolidate & Centralize Your Digital Media with a Smart Home Theater System

    centralize your media with a smart home theater systemWhen the term "home theater system" first originated, it was based on creating a theater-like experience with the use of a surround sound audio system. Over the years, the term Home Theater has taken on new meaning, encompassing all types of media - from music and movies to home video, photo albums and more. What was once the ability to enjoy great sound has transformed into endless entertainment possibilities. So what exactly does a Smart Home Theater System do? Practically everything!
     
    Thanks to the advances with television and Blu-ray technology in recent years, we're now able to consolidate and centralize media from multiple devices on our home network. Rather than acting only as a devices to watch Cable TV or movies, TVs and Blu-ray players have morphed into smart media hubs equipped with features like built-in Wi-Fi, voice and motion recognition, and the ability to make video calls with people halfway around the world. You can download and use apps that allow you to keep up with sports, surf social media, stream 4K Ultra-HD movies, listen to streaming music from thousands of channels, and even play video games. If your Blu-ray player or Smart TV are equipped with DLNA compatibility, you can watch movies or listen to your music playlist from a laptop in your bedroom, wirelessly, directly on your TV and surround sound system. The days of burning discs and messy cables are over - everything can be handled wirelessly through Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
     
    Screen mirroring is another great feature that allows you to share your smartphone or tablet's screen with your Smart TV. Let's say you want to watch a 45 minute documentary from the web on your big screen - just connect your phone with the TV, start playing the video on your phone and it will appear on your TV in full resolution with surround sound. This allows you to watch videos on a much larger scale, with improved audio and without the need to search for the video using the TV or Blu-ray Player's web browser (which can often be slow and fussy).
     
    Many Smart TVs and Blu-ray Players are now featuring dual-zone audio, which sometimes goes by different names. What this feature does is utilize a 7.1 channel audio system to set 2 channels to a different area. A great example of this would be to use two channels for the speakers for your outdoor patio, bar, or a basement. What's more is that while you can listen to your playlists from other devices, you can even use your smartphone as a remote control with many TVs and players. This means that when you're outside having a party (and listening to music that's both inside and outside your home thanks to dual-zone audio) you can use your phone's screen to access the user interface from the TV or Blu-ray player, select music, skip tracks, adjust the volume and more! If that's not impressive, we're not sure what is.
     
    Many people aren't aware of the true power of their Smart TVs or Smart Blu-ray Players. They can do a lot and they can do it all wirelessly. The technology is becoming more flexible, more capable, faster and more complete. When you're ready to consolidate your digital media for easy wireless access and playback on your TV and surround sound system, look into upgrading to a Smart Home Theater. For even more flexibility and universal use with any voltage, any TV and discs from anywhere in the world, look into purchasing a Region-Free Home Theater System - the ultimate in digital media flexibility.
     
    Don't take our word for it, start looking to create your own Smart Home Theater System today. You're going to be amazed by the features that come packaged with Smart TVs and Blu-ray players. It's easier than even to consolidate and centralize your music, movies, photos, and home videos with the smart interfaces they offer.

  • International Relocation Services with 220 Volt Electronics and Appliances

    international relocation services with electronics and appliancesIf you're like many people around the world who have relocated to different countries or continents, you're probably aware of the challenges. You may be moving to retire and live less expensively in a tropical paradise, or maybe you're relocating for work. You also might be moving just because you found the perfect place where you've decided you want to settle. It can be a very exciting and highly rewarding experience, but it's surely not without its setbacks. From legal documents regarding visas and citizenship, to banking, investments, and finding & securing property, there's no shortage of hoops to jump through. Moving overseas requires some definite patience. On the other hand, if you know what you're doing, you can streamline your international relocation and reduce the headaches.
     
    As specialists in international relocation, 220 Electronics offers services that cater to a rather important part of your move. As a global retailer of electronics and home appliances, we are constantly helping people who are planning to relocate or have already done so.
     
    You might be asking what electronics and appliances has to do with relocation, so let's answer that question for you in the simplest way possible.
     

    220 Volt Electronics and Appliances

    Around the world, different countries and continents use varying voltages of electricity for both residential and commercial services. In the US and North America, the standard is 120 volt electricity. In turn, all major electronics and appliances are designed to operate with 120 volt electricity. However, in Europe, for example, the standard voltage is 220 volts, where all electronics and appliances are designed for 220 volt use.
     
    What does it all mean? Well; you can't simply pack up your existing electronics and appliances and take them overseas with you. Furthermore, certain electronics such as TVs operate with specific color formats to display the picture and these formats vary from country to country. Others items such as Blu-ray Players are only compatible with discs purchased in the same region as the player, which means that you cannot play European or Asian discs on your North American Blu-ray Player. It actually gets quite complicated, but that's exactly what we're here for - to simplify things for you.
     
    We specialize in the sales and shipment of 220 and 240 volt appliances, multisystem tvs, region-free blue-ray players and more.

  • Multisystem Electronics: What's The Difference?

    multisystem electronicsIn today's fast-paced world of communication and travel, we expect things to be as flexible and convenient as possible. We have portable battery backups for our mobile devices, we can store our data on the cloud for easy access, and we can pay for our groceries - or our tab at the coffee shop - with a simple swipe of our cell phone. If there's a product or service that makes our lives easier, faster or more productive, you can be sure that people will want it.
     
    With electronics being one of the biggest markets in the world, it's not really a surprise that consumers and businesses alike are interested in the newest, most capable and most complete devices that money can buy. While many people won't even utilize a third of their electronic's capabilities, there are many of us who frequently squeeze every last drop of performance and capability out of our devices.
     
    You might be familiar with the term "multisystem" and you may have never heard of it - but it's another one of those technologies that allows for maximum flexibility, compatibility and usability. Multisystem technology allows people to get the most from their home electronics or personal devices when traveling abroad or moving overseas, and here's how it works.
     
    The term multisystem, generally speaking, represents a device that's capable of working with multiple systems. For example, a Multisystem TV can work at different voltages, with different standard color systems, and varying tuner frequencies. In different countries, continents and regions of the world, there are different systems for the delivery of data, electricity and audio/video compatibility.. A TV purchased in North America is not compatible with the voltage used in Europe, nor is it compatible with the european color system. In order to use your North American TV in England, you'll need a voltage converter and a video converter - at minimum. However, with a multisystem TV, it's plug-and-play. The Multisystem TV can be used with any voltage and any color system, without the need for any type of external converters. In basic terms, the multusystem TV is a global TV.
     
    Multisystem electronics are not limited to just TVs. Blu-ray players, surround sound systems and even personal electronics or small appliances are available to consumers who want products that will work anywhere in the world.
     
    Additionally, there is a wide array of products not considered to be multisystem per say, but that feature dual-voltage technology to provide global compatibility. These kind of products include home appliances and personal electronics such as hair dryers, electric razors and curling irons. They're designed to work at any voltage and can be used anywhere in the world. Both multisystem electronics and dual-voltage products are very valuable to anyone who travels, lives abroad or is planning to move overseas in the near future. These products - as mentioned before - are plug-and-play. They're designed to work everywhere without the need for additional converters, wires, adapters and the like. They completely eliminate any issues or worries about foreign compatibility, allowing you to focus on more important things than "Why did my curling iron just start on fire!???"
     
    If you're someone who frequently goes overseas or travels abroad for long periods, you'll surely understand these struggles of international compatibility - or at least have experienced it at some point. There's nothing like arriving in a comfortable hotel room after a week of hiking in the Swiss Alps; until you decide to give your face a much-needed shave and literally melt the internals of your razor because it's not designed for the 220-volt electricity used in Switzerland. It can be a rather stressful learning lesson, but it doesn't have to be. Whether you've experienced these setbacks before or are just learning about them, multisystem electronics and dual-voltage electronics can eliminate the hassles.
     
    As specialists in multusystem electronics, dual voltage electronics and international relocation with over 35 years experience, 220 Electronics can help you eliminate the worries about using your electronics and/or appliances overseas. We carry a large selection of multisystem electronics, dual-voltage electronics, and home appliances designed for global use and 220 bolt use. Better yet, we're the only retailer of these devices who guarantees the lowest prices in the world.

  • Multi-System and Region-Free.. What's the Difference?

    What are Multi-system, Multi-Region, Region Free and Code-Free Electronics?

    multisystem and region free electronicsIn the electronics world, devices are manufactured specifically for the area in which they're to be sold. From the device's labels and packaging to the default language and even retail price, there are many variations from country to country on what is essentially the exact same product. Additionally, these devices are manufactured to meet the specific requirements or regulations of these various countries, with one of the major factors being voltage compliance. Since different countries have different voltage standards (ranging from 110 volts to 240 volts) the electronics sold in any given country must be compatible with that country's voltage.
     

    Multi-System and Multi-Region

    When someone refers to "multi-system" or "multi-region", they're speaking of a device that can operate in foreign areas - usually because of its special voltage capability. Typically the device has been modified to operate at any voltage due to internal modifications. Common examples are TVs, DVD & Blu-ray Players, Stereo Receivers and other common items that might be taken along when moving, relocation or traveling abroad.
     
    Aside from the modifications that allow the device to operate at any voltage, there are also other changes in some cases. There are 3 major video formats used throughout the world - these are PAL, NTSC and SECAM. In order to use another video component with the TV such as a DVD or Blu-ray Player, both units need to use the same video format. While compatibility can be accomplished via an external converter, the best models will come with internal video converters which is the easiest option.
     

    Region-Free and Code-Free

    While DVD & Blu-ray players could fall into the multi-system category, they are more commonly referred to as being "region-free" or "code-free". The difference in names is mostly due to the fact that these types of devices are not only designed for a specific voltage, but also coded to only play discs that originate from the player's native region of sale. While there are many reasons for this which we won't get into, these types of devices need to be unlocked in order to play discs from outside regions.
     
    When utilizing a region-free DVD or Blu-ray player, there is no issue with voltage OR with playing discs from foreign countries. Some people purchase region-free or code-free players for traveling while others purchase them for the purpose of playing foreign discs in their native country - this is common with people who are collectors and enjoy watching foreign movies or those who purchase discs from overseas while vacationing or via the internet.
     
    It's advised that if you're using a TV that's not compatible with PAL, NTSC or SECAM, you should be sure that your video player is equipped with internal conversion. If not, you'll need an external video converter for compatibility.
