Vizio、米液晶TV出荷で初の通年首位

20100225twd006B001米市場調査会社のアイサプライによると、瑞軒科技(アムトラン)の自社ブランド「Vizio」が昨年の米国での液晶テレビ出荷台数で初の首位となった。



US-based Vizio became the leading LCD TV brand in the United States in 2009 as its shipments increased 92.1% on year to 5.9 million units in 2009 from 3.1 million in 2008, while Samsung Electronics took the top spot in the overall flat-panel TV market for the year, according to iSuppli.

Vizio's market share rose to 18.7% in 2009, up from 12.6% in 2008. Vizio led the US LCD TV market during every quarter of 2009, except for the third, when Samsung took the top spot due to the popularity of its LED-backlit sets.

The overall US LCD TV market increased 29% in 2009.

"Vizio continues to benefit from its strong brand recognition among US consumers," said Riddhi Patel, director, TV systems and retail services for iSuppli. "The company already has established itself as the price leader in LCD TVs. The company played to this strength in 2009 by offering attractive promotions to consumers. Furthermore, Vizio moved to make its LCD TV products more competitive with premium brands, adding higher-end features such as LED backlights and Internet connectivity."

Looking at the overall US flat-panel TV market, consisting of both LCD TVs and plasma sets, Samsung retained leadership in 2009.

Samsung's US flat-panel TV shipments rose to 6.6 million units in 2009, up 22.6% from 5.4 million units in 2008. The company ended 2009 with a market share of 18.4%, virtually unchanged from 18.5% in 2008.

"Samsung maintained its overall leadership in the US flat panel TV market due to the continued success of the LED-backlit LCD TVs and its strong price competitiveness in both value and premium TV segments," Patel said.

The second strongest performance among the Top-six LCD TV brands in the US in 2009 was posted by Japan's Toshiba, which achieved 81.7% increase in shipments for the year. The company ended 2009 with a 7.6% share of shipments, up from 4.2% in 2008, giving it a fourth-place ranking for the year.

"Toshiba's rise was due to its increased shipments of LCD TVs at aggressive price points, which are much closer to the value brands," Patel said.

Sony was the best performer in the US LCD TV market in the fourth quarter, with its share rising to 13.2%, up from 7.7% in the third quarter.

"Sony's strong fourth-quarter performance mainly was driven by its aggressive pricing and promotions for the Christmas season," Patel said. "Consumers were attracted by Sony's bundled deals combining LCD TVs with Play Station 3 video game consoles and Blu-ray players."

Sony ranked third in the US LCD TV market both in the fourth quarter and for the entire year of 2009.

米Vizioが、2010年度(2010.1~12)のLED LCD TV(以下、LED TV)目標出荷台数を明らかにした。

米VIZIO,液晶テレビにミリ波無線「WirelessHD」を採用へ

米VIZIO,Inc.は,同社の液晶テレビに,非圧縮HD映像の無線伝送機能を搭載する方針を明らかにした。
同社の液晶テレビの一部機種に,60GHz帯のミリ波を活用した無線インタフェース「WirelessHD」を採用する。WirelessHDは,最大データ伝送速度が4Gビット/秒(Version 1.0仕様)と高速で,1080pのHD映像を非圧縮で無線伝送できる。既に,パナソニックや韓国LG Electronics,Inc.などが,WirelessHD対応機器を発売していた。
VIZIO社は,WirelessHD対応の液晶テレビなどを,2010年中に発売する方針だ。
同社は,2010年1月7日から米ラスベガスで開催される「2010 International CES」において,対応するシステムの試作機を公開する予定。WirelessHD用の送受信チップセットには,米SiBEAM,Inc.の製品を用いた。
SiBEAM社は先ごろ,普及価格帯のAV機器に向けた第2世代のチップセットを発表しているが,VIZIO社は同製品を採用するもよう。なおVIZIO社は,業界団体「WirelessHD」に加盟することも明らかにした。
家庭のAV機器に向けたHD映像の無線伝送規格にはこのほか,AMIMON社などが推進する「WHDI」があり,既に複数のAV機器メーカーが採用している。このほか,米Intel Corp.などが推進するWiGigも,正式仕様を発表したばかり。今後,これら伝送規格を主導する企業や関連メーカーによる,業界標準を巡る争いが激しくなりそうだ。

LCD TVs in the US in the third quarter, while Vizio shipped 1.2 million LCD TVs, according to iSuppli.

 Amtran also said the joint venture it has set up in China with LG Display mainly targets clients in Asia and South America. It has received LCD TV OEM orders from the top-three China TV vendors, with shipments beginning in the fourth quarter of 2009 and expected to increase significantly in 2010, said Amtran.
