NEW ZEALAND newcomer Anyware Computer Accessories plans to introduce products to enable convergence between digital technologies and electrical appliances in the SOHO sector.
Along with its Australian parent company the company, which set up shop in Penrose earlier this year, Anyware was appointed as the official distributor for Korean digital multimedia vendor AL Tech in New Zealand.
Included in the AL Tech gadgets Anyware will bring to New Zealand is a device that transmits MP3 music files from storage devices and digital music players to FM radios and a wireless DVD player that connects to a PC to play back digital media files on a television set.
Director Garrison Huang says the Mediagate digital player should be in the country by the end of the month, while the Anydrive Car MP3 + FM transmitter will be available once compliance with local industry standards is met.
“The frequency range of the device was too wide for the New Zealand market,” he explains.
Huang says talks are under way with another vendor for the rights to bring to the country home automation products through which the operation of a range of electrical appliances can be controlled remotely and through a PC.
