Teleco’s SMART TV wins a place on the podium in promobil tests
Prestigious German magazine promobil recently conducted in-depth tests on eight different European brand televisions for campers and caravans. The outcome, published in the 4th April issue, awarded the Teleco TEK 24DS Smart TV the “Recommended Product” (Kauftipp) mark due to its excellent value for money. The tests looked at televisions with a screen size of 22 - 24 inches in the 399 - 639 euro price range. Each television underwent a series of rigorous technical tests to establish performance on the basis of seven parameters that included audio and video quality, user-friendliness of on-screen and remote control browsing, speaker power and design.
The total points awarded across the various categories saw Teleco score an excellent 79 points out of 100. Indeed, the tests conducted by the German monthly magazine highlight the TEK 24DS television’s image quality, stability and sharpness of colour. Audio quality was also above average, but it was on the screen brightness front that Teleco achieved excellence, scoring 13 out of 15. In assessing user-friendliness, the technicians focused on the procedures that need to be performed to access platforms such as YouTube, Spotify and Netflix or access multimedia content from a USB stick. Once again, the results were excellent: Teleco scored 17 points out of 20. External appearance (8 points out of 10) and user-friendliness of the remote control (8 out of 10) also achieved good scores.
“We know that the German promobil journalists take these technical tests very seriously”, stated Vittorio Simioli, one of the two founders of the Teleco Group. "That’s why we’re proud to see such great results, which underscore the quality of our Smart TV models. Note also that these TVs incorporate both the DVB-S2 satellite receiver and DVB-T2 HEVC terrestrial receiver and have a control system for our satellite antennas, a Teleco exclusive. While this distinctive feature of the TEK TV range was not taken into consideration in this specific test, it is nevertheless something that only we provide and includes two special keys on the remote control for the Flatsat and Telesat satellite antennas: Automatic ON lets you automatically raise the dish and lock onto the last satellite in the memory while Sat PARK returns the dish to the parking position”.
Another great thing about the TEK range is that the special software automatically associates its program list with each country, offering a total of over 6000 satellite or terrestrial channels. Furthermore, these televisions can run not just on a 12 Volt system but also on a 24 Volt system and, thanks to their 9 V - 32 V application range, there’s not a single vehicle on which they cannot be fitted.
