SHARP AQUOS Technology Captures Real Beauty through Details, Contrast, and Colours

SHARP’s AQUOS technology demonstrates picture quality that is distinctly close to nature through real detail, real contrast, and real colours featured through 7 perceptions.

Capturing Real Detail

The X4 Master Engine Pro II Processor allows for 4K upconverting, the conversion to 4K is executed with the contour and texture information of the source video kept intact, producing superior 4K quality from standard definition or high definition sources. Video definition is also improved through enhancement of the contrast between detected edges and their periphery.

Along with the 4K Digital Noise Reduction, the MEMC algorithm generates an intermediate image between continuous frames to reduce blur and display a clear 4K image, keeping the digital image quality clean of undesirable pixilation, even after up conversion.

Capturing Real Contrast

With the 4K U HDR feature it allows for display of detailed texture in both light and dark areas, resulting is realistic contract and provides depth to the image. It enables non-HDR content to be reproduced to show natural contract through detecting and comparing the brightness and actively adjusting the backlight to the optimal level.

With the Comfort Luminance Display’s that uses a highly efficient LED backlight that recycles the light it emits, displays images optimally on the panel, increasing the depth in scenery and texture of the material content, producing life-like content.

Capturing Real Colour

The Deep Chroma Display technology adopts a “six axis colour management” which incorporates the complementary colours of magenta, yellow and cyan in addition to the three primary colours of red, green, and blue. As a result, subtle tones are depicted distinctly with colour balance kept intact to bring colour closer to that of nature. On top of this, the TV can demonstrate real colours through the 123% wider colour gamut, offering a larger palette of colours for viewers to enjoy.

With the Colour Optimizer, it adjusts and picks out the colours displayed to those that are naturally detected by the human eye. The Tone Optimiser provides natural colour tones with 64 times more colour levels as compared to regular displays, adjusting tones to be true to the eye. Both resulting in superb expression of light and dark tones and natural colour reproduction to create natural looking images.

AOX Introduces The World’s First Antioxidant Alkaline Water Filtration System That Incorporates An Active Oxygen Sterilizing Function For Homes.

AOX Compac O2+_1

AOX Pte Ltd, a Singapore company that designs and supplies alkaline water dispensers  launch the AOX Compac O2+ Antioxidant Alkaline Dispenser with built-in Active Oxygen Sterilizer.

Designed in Singapore, AOX Compac O2+ is the world’s first antioxidant alkaline water filtration system that incorporates an Active Oxygen Sterilizer function for homes. The newly designed alkaline water dispenser enhances users’ quality of life by addressing daily clean water consumption and sanitization needs for the whole family.

As standards of living improve, there is an increasing awareness of how clean food and water can significantly impact one’s health. AOX Compac O2+ is designed to provide not only antioxidant alkaline water but also the ability to sanitize meat, vegetables, fruits, and utensils as well. Using Active Oxygen Sterilization, the AOX Compac O2+ effectively removes pesticides from fruits and vegetables as well as bacteria and odour from utensils, baby milk bottles and even small toys. This is all done chemical-free!

AOX Patented Filter System

The Compac O2+ features a 7-stage water filtration system. A One-Micron Sediment Carbon Block Filter (F12-U) effectively removes sediments such as rust, particles and lead in the tap water. It also removes organic chemical substances such as chlorine, detergent, pigments and carcinogens. Foul smell is also eliminated during the filtering process, leaving fresh tasting water for consumption. It is equipped with Dual Dynamic Microbiological Interception (DDMI) filter to remove 99.99% of microscopic bacteria and other contaminants from water, such as heavy metals, fluoride, leaving filtered water containing only minerals desired by the human body. It also removes the need to boil water, which is a common habit of households.

Natural Antioxidants in Every Drop

AOX Antioxidant Alkaline Minerals filter makes the water dispense by the Compac O2+ alkaline and antioxidant in nature. The filter supplies essential minerals such as calcium, potassium, magnesium, sodium and silica to promote healthy cells, bones, joints, organs and skin. Furthermore, it decreases the size of water molecule clusters with abundance of negative ions.

Active Oxygen Sterilisation

Compac O2+ improves the quality of life by giving users easy access to food safety and hygiene. Our O2+ Active Oxygen Sterilizer can effectively remove toxins and bacteria from fruits, vegetables, meat and even your baby’s necessities. It can also clean the air and remove stubborn unpleasant odour especially after cooking!

The O2+ Active Oxygen Sterilisation function is subtly concealed and positioned at the top of the machine, preventing any accidental activation by children. An Active Oxygen Sterilisation air hose is housed neatly and conveniently at the side, where users can easily extract the air hose to release active oxygen into water receptacles for cleaning and sterilization functions. The system is optimally designed for easy cleaning and minimal maintenance.

Concept and Design

In households with babies and young children, it is common to have both water filter dispensers and sterilizers. These two systems when placed together, take up a lot of space on the kitchen counter. The AOX Compac O2+ is an amalgam of innovation, functionality and aesthetics. Minimalistic in design, it integrates subtly into contemporary kitchen designs, eliminating the need for two separate systems for drinking and sterilization.

The AOX Compac O2+ is an integrative, cost and space-saving water drinking and cleaning solution for homes and families. This project is funded by Enterprise Singapore in recognition of AOX Compac O2+’s innovation and unique design.

Pricing and Availability

The AOX Compac O2+ Antioxidant Alkaline Water Dispenser with Active Oxygen Sterilizer retails locally at S$2,780 and will be available from October 2020. Available in 2 colours, Rose Mist and Platinum White; it is now available for demo and pre-order at AOX Showrooms (Midview City & Square 2) and at TANGS (Orchard & Vivo City) AOX Counter.

The new BMW 5 Series now available in Singapore.

The new BMW 5 Series

 

BMW Asia and Performance Motors Limited today announced the availability of the new BMW 5 Series. A heightened sense of outward authority, an interior brimming with detail refinements, the efficiency-enhancing influence of electrification, and cutting-edge innovations in the areas of driver assistance, control/operation and connectivity help the new BMW 5 Series to cement its position as a particularly sporty, efficient and progressive addition to the premium end of the executive class.

The use of mild hybrid technology with a 48V starter-generator will be rolled out to all models in Singapore. The most important new features of the interior include the display and operation system, which now also encompasses a Control Display measuring up to 12.3 inches. Added to which, the introduction of BMW Operating System 7.0 now brings owners the services of the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant. The addition of, for example, the optional Steering and Lane Control Assistant – with Active Navigation and the likewise new automatic formation of emergency lane functions – to the list of driver assistance systems takes the new BMW 5 Series another few steps along the road to automated driving.

The wide variety of technological innovations on board paves the way for the most tradition-rich model range in the BMW line-up to write another chapter in its success story. More than 600,000 units of the BMW 5 Series have now been sold worldwide since the current model generation was launched. The new BMW 5 Series is produced at BMW Plant Dingolfing in Bavaria.

Exterior design: increased presence and exquisite sporting style.

The exterior design of the new BMW 5 Series is headlined by sporting grace and clean surfaces. Precise modifications showcase the car’s presence and exquisite sporting style even more vividly. The BMW kidney grille adds extra width and height, drops down further into the front apron and is framed by a single-piece surround. The slimmer contouring of the headlights brings a modern twist to the focussed look familiar from BMW’s past and present.

L-shaped daytime driving light sources arranged next to one another create a precise and modern light graphic. New full-LED headlights including adaptive cornering function, BMW Selective Beam non-dazzling high beam with matrix technology, and the High-beam Assistant are offered as standard while the BMW Laserlight is optional. The outer daytime driving lights also perform the role of turn indicators.

Black edging and a new L-shaped graphic give the rear lights of the new BMW 5 Series additional visual impact. The rear lights and brake lights are integrated into a shared light fixture, which now forms a single unit with the prominently three-dimensional external lens. Regardless of the equipment line and engine specified, all models of the new BMW 5 Series come with trapezoidal tailpipe finishers.

M Sport package, BMW Individual Air Performance Wheels and M Sport Edition raise exclusivity another notch.

The M Sport package brings a significantly more muscular design to both the front and rear of the car thanks to new, dynamically proportioned aerodynamic features. New exterior colours and the optional BMW Individual Air Performance Wheels – making their debut here – provide additional enhancements. The innovative construction of the exclusive light-alloy wheels brings about a reduction in weight and drag coefficient. In addition, a new M Sport Edition version of the new BMW 5 Series will be available from launch in a worldwide production run of 1,000 units while limited units will make its way to Singapore. Its exclusive specification includes the M Sport package, model-specific Air Performance Wheels, a Donington Grey metallic paint finish and new M multifunction seats – previously reserved for the BMW M5 – with integral head restraints and optimised side and shoulder support. Their range of functions includes electric adjustment of the seat position, backrest angle and width, thigh support and head restraint height.

Interior: 12.3-inch Control Display, new equipment options.

The now standard 10.25-inch (standard on the new BMW 520i and new BMW 530e) or 12.3-inch Control Display (standard on the new BMW 520i Luxury Line, new BMW 530i M Sport and new BMW 530i M Sport Edition), newly designed controls on the centre console and the standard sports leather steering wheel with newly arranged multifunction buttons headline an interior brimming with detail refinements. Standard equipment for the new BMW 5 Series now also includes automatic climate control with extended features. New additions to the options list include M multifunction seats with a wide range of adjustment, new interior trim strips and seat surfaces in Sensatec perforated trim.

48V mild hybrid technology for all models.

Mild hybrid technology will now offer enhanced performance combined with lower fuel consumption and improved driving comfort of the new BMW 5 Series. Fitting an extremely powerful 48V starter-generator and a second battery enables a significant increase in the amount of brake energy that can be regenerated and stored. This energy is used not just for supplying the electrical system, but also for lightening the combustion engine’s workload and boosting its power.

The starter-generator produces an electric boost effect that instantly puts an additional 8 kW /    11 hp on tap, bringing extra dynamism to overtaking and off-the-line acceleration. The powerful starter-generator also increases efficiency by assisting the engine when driving at constant speeds and improves comfort when the Auto Start Stop and coasting functions are in use.

Further developed powertrain and chassis technology.

The new BMW 5 Series comes with a choice of two petrol engines with power output of 184 hp and 252 hp, and one plug-in hybrid model with a combined system output of 292 hp. The direct injection system operates at increased pressure, meaning greater efficiency. All the engines link up with an eight-speed Steptronic transmission as standard.

There is a choice of sophisticated chassis systems designed to effectively enhance either agility and dynamism or driving comfort. M Sport suspension, Adaptive M suspension, and Adaptive M suspension Professional including active roll stabilisation can all be found on the options list. The latest version of the optional Integral Active Steering can come to the driver’s aid when manoeuvring by turning the rear wheels as required even at speeds under 3 km/h. Red callipers are now available as an alternative to the blue units as a visual differentiator for the M Sport brakes.

Driver assistance systems offering additional functions.

The driver assistance systems available for the new BMW 5 Series serve to both enhance driving comfort on long journeys and increase safety in situations where the driver does not have a clear view. The Lane Departure Warning system included with the standard Driving Assistant now also features lane return by means of steering assistance. The updated Steering and Lane Control Assistant included as part of the new Driving Assistant Professional package (optional) also brings Active Navigation.

The Parking Assistant’s range of functions has been extended with the addition of the Reversing Assistant, which takes control of the steering while backing up for distances of up to 50 metres. The new Drive Recorder lets drivers shoot and store videos of the scene around the vehicle. In addition, the 3D visualisation of the surrounding area in the instrument cluster provides an enhanced overview of the current traffic situation, the status of the driver assistance systems and the possible courses of action they offer.

New digital services: BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant, Smartphone Integration, Remote Software Upgrade.

Both the BMW Live Cockpit Plus (standard on the new BMW 520i) and the BMW Live Cockpit Professional (standard on all other variants) bring the new BMW Operating System 7.0 to the new BMW 5 Series, together with a host of extra digital services. The BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant with extended functionality is also now available in the new BMW 5 Series as a standard feature.

The standard Smartphone Integration function is now compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Remote Software Upgrade is another new feature that enables improved vehicle functions and additional digital services to be imported into the car over the air.

BMW Digital Key for the iPhone.

The BMW Digital Key for the iPhone will enable customers to just tap to unlock and easily get going by placing the iPhone in the smartphone tray and pushing the start button. Setup of the Digital Key can be done through the BMW Connected App. The car owner can also share access with up to five friends including a configurable car access option for young drivers which restricts top speed, horse power, maximum radio volume and more. Management of access can be done from inside the car as well as through Apple Wallet.

The new BMW 5 Series is now available for viewing at the Performance Motors Limited showroom.
