AIRPORT CITY, Israel, Sept. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Today at the IFA exhibition in Berlin, SodaStream has unveiled the Fizz, the latest in its portfolio of home soda makers. The new model features the interactive Fizz Chip™ digital screen, a high-tech indicator designed to aid consumer understanding of their individual carbonation technique and usage. The patented Fizz Chip displays the amount of CO2 remaining in the carbonator (which powers the home soda maker) and also shows the strength of carbonation -- or "fizz" -- in the drink (light, medium or strong). This new technology enhances and adds value to the user experience in a manner never achieved before in the home carbonation industry.
"After three years of development, we are proud to introduce the SodaStream Fizz, bringing the category to a new level," said Daniel Birnbaum, CEO of SodaStream. "The Fizz offers a user experience breakthrough by helping to make homemade soda even easier. The interactive Fizz Chip indicator lets the user see how fizzy their drink will be and also how much CO2 remains in the carbonator. This helps the user know in advance that it is time to exchange their carbonator for a full one, or get an additional spare. I expect that the Fizz Chip will become a standard feature in home carbonation."
The SodaStream Fizz home soda maker is a countertop appliance designed with a modern, artistic style for a premium look, available in a variety of colors (white, black, green, metallic red and shiny blue) to fit any kitchen atmosphere. With the Fizz Chip indicator, consumers will enjoy the dual-benefit of making sparkling drinks that are perfectly carbonated to their personal taste, while monitoring the level of CO2 in the carbonator.
SodaStream has joined forces with leading communications agency Grey London, and the world-renowned illustrator Mat Maitland, to create colorful, fun, inspired graphics describing the Fizz as "incredibubble," "delectabubble" and "desirabubble." The global marketing campaign elements include TV, print, digital, 3-D video, and out of home media. The Fizz will be available for purchase during the upcoming holiday season in several markets across Europe and is planned for retail distribution in the United States beginning Spring 2011.
