SHARP ANNOUNCES TV/VCR COMBINATION UNITS FOR PROFESSIONAL USERS

 'Help Button' Provides On-Screen Guidance


Auto Repeat Function Enables Unattended Playback for P.O.P. Displays
 MAHWAH, N.J., April 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Sharp Electronics Corporation has combined the best elements of its television and VCR lines to introduce two new TV/VCR combination units for professional applications, such as conference rooms, trade shows, classrooms, churches or point-of-purchase displays. The 13-VTF100P and 20-VTF100P blend the quality of Sharp TVs and VCRs with the stylish, compact design and convenience of a single unit. The 13-VTF100P and 20-VTF100P have a 13- and 20-inch television screen, respectively (measured diagonally).
 The 13-VTF100P and 20-VTF100P simplify operation with a "Help Button" that provides on-screen operating guidance, almost eliminating the need for a manual. An easy to set up end-of-video auto repeat function, combined with "tamper-proof" capability enables these units to be operated unattended at trade show exhibitions, in hotel lobbies or in retail point-of-purchase displays.
 "Responding to the increasing popularity in TV/VCR combo units, Sharp has developed specially tailored units for professional applications," says Ron Colgan, general manager, Professional LCD Products Division. The simplicity of operation and space-saving design, combined with features such as auto-repeat and tamper-proof capability make these units ideal not only for executives and sales persons, but also for training instructors and educators alike."
 The VHS format VCR built into the 13-VTF100P and 20-VTF100P features a High Quality (HQ) picture system, Full Loading Rapid Response Mechanism. Digital Program Search System (DPSS), digital auto tracking control, auto head cleaner and full automatic playback function. A one- month, five-event program timer is programmable by the day or week. Other useful features include a real time counter, simple recording timer, and multi-language (English/French/Spanish) on-screen display.
 The TV features of both units include a 181 channel Phase-Locked Loop (PLL) tuning system with convenient front audio/video input jacks and a built-in closed caption decoder. A unified remote control further brings the TV and VCR together, making programming and viewing easier than ever.
 The 13-VTF100P is available now through Sharp's professional products dealer network, and has a suggested list price of $595. The 20-VTF100P will be available in July with a suggested list price of $695.
