FISHER AUDIO/VIDEO ANNOUNCES FIRST 'WALKABOUT' PERSONAL PORTABLE CD PLAYER WITH ANTI-SHOCK MECHANISM (Product Announcement)

 FISHER AUDIO/VIDEO ANNOUNCES FIRST 'WALKABOUT' PERSONAL
 PORTABLE CD PLAYER WITH ANTI-SHOCK MECHANISM
 LAS VEGAS, Nev., Jan. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Fisher Audio/Video today announced the first personal portable CD player that can be used while walking or in an automobile -- without skipping. The PCD7 ($499.95) (available in April 1992) will be demonstrated at a news conference at the 1992 Winter Consumer Electronics Show with Fisher's exclusive Optitrak(TM) Fast Multi-Trace (FMT) electronic read-ahead anti-shock mechanism.
 "Fisher's electronic read-ahead circuitry brings true portability to 'portable' CD players, giving consumers the ability to enjoy today's most popular digital format while engaging in a variety of activities," Vice President of Fisher Marketing Michael Shoemaker commented.
 The Optitrak FMT system resists shock-induced interruption by storing CD music in the unit's integrated circuit (IC) memory. Digital information is read at twice normal speed and stored in the 4-megabyte IC memory before digital to analog conversion.
 When the unit's 3-beam laser tracking system is disturbed, memory writing stops for a brief time while the pickup moves back to its original position using a high-speed access system. Since the memory writing speed is twice as fast as musical output, a constant stream of data is maintained in memory for uninterrupted listening during most activities.
 An LCD remote control displays the operational status of the unit at all times and offers convenient command of all major functions. Playback functions include intro scan, 5-way repeat and 22-memory random programming to vary the order of CD selections.
 Ultra slim design and a high-stress metal case make the PCD7 durable and small enough to carry virtually anywhere, with rechargeable NiCd batteries for a constant supply of power. A 16-bit DAC filter with 8x oversampling ensures quality CD audio playback.
 Activities such as running are not recommended with the unit, since sharp and continuous shock might result in playback interruption.
 Also included is a 3-position electronic equalization system, auto power off to conserve battery life, and an AC adapter.
 Headquartered in Chatsworth, Calif., Fisher Audio/Video is a division of Sanyo Fisher (USA) Corporation ("SFC"), which markets a complete line of quality audio, video and home appliance products. SFC is a subsidiary of Sanyo Electric Co., Ltd., a major worldwide electronics manufacturer.
