PURE DIGITAL TEMPUS-1S DAB DIGITAL RADIO
London, 29th August 2007: PURE Digital – the world leader in DAB digital radio – presents the TEMPUS-1S, the third generation of the multi-award-winning TEMPUS family of DAB bedside radios.
To aid sleep and relaxation, TEMPUS-1S has been enhanced with "Natural Sounds" including birdsong, forest rain, thunderstorm and lapping waves. These digitally recorded natural sounds can be listened to as background music, used as an alarm tone or played for up to 90 minutes before gradually fading out to silence once the user is asleep.
TEMPUS-1S features a new OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) display, providing crystal-clear readability from any angle and a light sensor which automatically adjusts display brightness.
Other new features include: more station presets (30 DAB or FM); an auxiliary input to connect an iPod or MiniDisc player; Intellitext® for browsing stored scrolling text, textSCAN™ to pause and control scrolling text and FM with RDS for maximum station choice.
Features that made TEMPUS-1XT a multiple-award winner have been retained and include SnoozeHandle®, advanced alarm settings including weekday, weekend or one off, wake fade up and sleep fade down, full screen clock, crystal clear audio, USB upgradeability and an optional stereo speaker.
TEMPUS-1S is the third member of the EcoPlus range from PURE and has been designed to minimise environmental impact, with a standby power consumption of less than 1W, packaging made from a minimum of 70% recycled material, finished with water based varnish, and documentation printed with soya-based ink on 100% recycled paper. All EcoPlus products are designed and manufactured to minimise their environmental impact, with: reduced power consumption; use of materials from recycled and sustainable sources; optimum packaging size for transport efficiency; selection of components with minimised environmental impact.
The real wood, cherry veneer casework that encapsulates the TEMPUS's classic design has been subtly enhanced with a new grill, larger, easier-to-see buttons, metalised knobs and a light sensor to automatically set the display brightness.
TEMPUS-1S will be available on the high street at an SRP of £99.99 in September. For more information log onto www.pure.com or call 01923 277 488.
TEMPUS-1S is powered by the Frontier Chorus FS1010, which incorporates the revolutionary META multi-threaded processor and Universal Communications Core technologies developed by Imagination Technologies.
