Dumanis Shopping for Netflix-Savvy High Def TVs

San Diego county District Attorney and mayoral candidate Bonnie Dumanis has put out word that she's in the market for a few big screen "smart" TVs, equipped for interactive game playing and Netflix and Vudu video streaming.

According to a March 3 request for quotation posted on the county's purchasing site, the D.A. "has a requirement for five 60" televsion sets."

The specific Sharp Acquos model requested is described on Sharp's website as "a high-performance large screen LCD TV," featuring a "Full HD 1080p X-Gen Panel" that "produces a breathtaking picture quality that is second to none."

"This fully featured series also incorporates the Sharp proprietary AquoMotion 240 feature, which virtually eliminates perceptible blur and motion artifacts in fast moving video.

"With Smart TV the [unit] includes Netflix1,Vudu™ and CinemaNow streaming video capability, along with the industry’s leading online support system, AQUOS Advantage Live.

"And, with built-in Wi-Fi, connectivity is easier than ever. A built-in media player allows for playback of video, music, and photos via the USB port."

For a quick video game break, the unit features "Vyper Drive game mode [that] eliminates perceptible lag between game consoles and the TV display."

The units can currently be purchased for between about $1,400 and $2200 each, according to Amazon's listings.

The D.A.'s chief spokesman Steve Walker explained via email that the TVs are to be deployed "in training rooms at the East County Regional Center and the San Diego Regional Firearms Training Center (gun range)."

"After a review of a proposed computer systems upgrade," he added. "it was determined that replacing the TV monitors was a more cost effective solution.

"By the way, this is our contribution to the ongoing maintenance of operations of the range, which we share with the San Diego County Sheriff's Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation."

Probably that's how she keeps those Assistant D.A.'s around who hate her so much. She buys them fancy TV's to watch HD sports and 3D porn in the break room.
