New LCD Line-up Includes 22-inch, 32-inch, 37-inch and 42-inch Screen Sizes and LED-backlit Models

Panasonic announced its new LCD HDTV line-up at the 2010 Consumer Electronics Show. They have increased screen sizes to include additional 42-inch class models and showcased new models employing LED-backlight technology. The majority of the 2010 VIERA LCD line-up features IPS Panel, delivering a 178° wide viewing angle and higher moving picture resolution for clear, bright images. Panasonic’s popular Universal Dock for iPod feature, which also works with iPhone, continues on select VIERA LCD HDTVs. To accommodate the expanded product line and continue to increase Panasonic’s presence in the LCD arena, Panasonic will open a new LCD factory in Himeji, Japan in July, 2010.

“Panasonic’s corporate philosophy is driven by listening to our customers and providing technologically innovative products that meet the consumer’s wants and needs,” said Bob Perry, Senior Vice President, Panasonic Consumer Electronics Company. “We firmly believe in providing options for the consumer and by producing LCD and Plasma HDTVs, Panasonic is doing just that. Panasonic’s commitment to providing the ultimate in picture quality and home entertainment is affirmed by the advances made in the 2010 VIERA LCD line to improve what was already a terrific quality and valued HDTV.”

Panasonic’s LED-LCD D2 series features two 1080p Full HD models – TC-L37D2, a 37-inch class (37″ measured diagonally) HDTV and the TC-L42D2, a 42-inch class (42.0″ measured diagonally) HDTV. The D2 series introduces LED-backlight technology to the 2010 model line-up. LED-LCD uses white LEDs arranged around the inside frame of the TV along with a special diffusion panel designed to spread the light evenly behind the LCD panel. This method of backlighting the LCD panel allows for the LED-LCD HDTVs to become extremely thin and offers a wider color gamut than traditional back-lit LCDs, which use fluorescent bulbs to provide the light source. Combined with the IPS panel, the viewing angle is enhanced, contrast is also improved and there is lower power consumption. The D2 series also features the proprietary Universal Dock for iPod; the VIERA Image Viewer™ to view digital still JPEG photos with music slideshow capability; VIERA Link™, – a technology that utilizes HDMI-CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) and allows a consumer to operate all VIERA Link compatible A/V components using only the TV’s remote control; a PC input; 24p Smooth film; 120Hz Motion Picture Pro 4; four HDMI connections and Clear Panel.
