Toshiba-SMMS-e-homeUK: Rugby World Cup sponsors Toshiba used the England v Fiji opening match on Friday as the stage for the UK launch of its new world-beating SMMS-e VRF.

While England may have underperformed on the night, Toshiba’s new SMMS-e looked like a world-beater when unveiled pre-match in the imposing Strawberry Hill House, close to Twickenham Stadium.

The new VRF offers a number of new developments which have pushed ESEERs to over 7 across the range.

Initially only available in two-pipe (a three-pipe version is promised within the next six months), the SMMS-e is being launched across Europe this month.
