Sylvania and Emerson sold out to Funai for Audio/Video devices, just say it!

It would be much more accurate to say that the "f" company acquired the rights to manufacture products under the Emerson and Sylvania names. Nobody "sold out".

Emerson Radio Announces Completion of License Agreement With Funai Corporation

10/30/2000

Television, Digital Television, and set-top-boxes

Emerson Radio Corp. (AMEX:MSN) reported today that it entered into a license agreement with Funai Corporation ("Funai") that expands its existing video license agreement to include digital technology products and future introduction of digital television (DTV), projection television, and set-top-boxes.

The video license agreement encompasses a three-year term and establishes minimum royalty payments to be received by Emerson for licensing the Emerson brand name to Funai and becomes effective January 1, 2001. Under the terms of the agreement, Funai manufactures, markets and distributes digital versatile disc (DVD) players and recorders, televisions, television combinations, set-top-boxes and video cassette recorder (VCR) and players (VCP) that bear the Emerson brand name in North America. This agreement replaces the license agreement that previously existed with Daewoo Electronics Co. Ltd. ("Daewoo"). Daewoo will continue to be a supplier of other product categories to Emerson.

Let's see . . . on the planet where I live, "acquiring the rights to manufacture products" is akin to "entering into a license agreement", so the post quite well confirms what I said.

It also pretty well confirms that in no way was Emerson "sold out" to "f" or anybody else. Certainly payment of royalties is not an uncommon practice and does not constitues a "sell out".

Finally, the citation is quite dated: indicating a licensing agreement signed in 2000 with a three year term. Means that it expired, in the cited form, about 4 years ago. mmmm, perhaps the planet where tippy lives uses a different canendar?

Thanks for the Sticky, good stuff!!
I too own an Olevia!! The more I live with it and see the difference between it and my downstairs toshiba projection, the more I LOVE IT!!!
HD over the AIR channels and the new slowly implemented Digital Channels are simply breathtaking!!!

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that i don't run into any problems down the line (like i did with my Westinghouse).

On a more personal note i can say that the Olevia customer care is great! Very knowledgeable and very helpful. Called to ask about the firmware upgrade once. Overall i'm a satisfied customer!

Default Very Bold

Pap, it was very bold to take a chance of posting your user opinions. I applaud your taking the risk and think your guide will indeed help many people select a good HDTV.

But what's up with the teeth dude? Didn't you save enough money on the Olevia to go to a dentist?

Sorry, no insult meant, the above post kinda raised my horns, just meant in fun.
