Digital products

Thanks to digital technologies, content can be compressed for storage and rapid distribution. In this new digital era, consumers can access an unlimited range of programs with interactive services.

Thomson multimedia is the world leader in many digital applications: decoders, DVD players, TV sets equipped with an electronic program guide, digital cable modems linking computers capable of providing Internet access at high speed...

The consumer audio market also maintains strong potential for growth with the development of digital and Internet technologies. Launched in 1999, the LYRA personal digital player memorizes and reads downloaded music from the Internet using CD audio or other digital formats. Thomson expanded its digital audio lineup with a product launch including discs encoded in the mp3 format.

Thomson multimedia also became an unavoidable leader in the digital home communications segment by combining its communications activity with Alcatel and creating ATLINKS, making the new company not only number one in the United States but in the world as well.

Finally, the Group entered the electronic book market by launching two modems in cooperation with GEMSTAR.

The ambition of Thomson multimedia is to offer products and solutions so that, in this transition phase, everyone can have easy access to services at his/her own rhythm.
