(Century City, CA) On February 23, 2010, Panasonic had a press conference to present the launch of the upcoming HD3D TV. Of course any content viewed in 3D needs to be filmed in 3D. Get ready you can watch the World Cup this summer in South Africa in 3D. This is the first time a televised gaming sport is being taped in 3D.
Representatives from Panasonic held a press conference recently at the Intercontinental Hotel in Century City to introduce the new 2010 Home Entertainment Solutions, especially the Full HD3D plasma Home Entertainment Systems. The difference between this and all the other plasmas that have been out is the new 3D and 2D versions are coming out in 2010. The 2D plasmas are 3D compatible, the motion resolution is in 2D and the content has to be in 3D. The Panasonic TV’s have a lot more features by being wireless, ability to attach cameras to TV, IPod connecting feature, Wi-Fi, Skype and the list goes on. Panasonic is the #1 player in plasma TV’s.
Another added feature is a True to Cinema Surround which is a 360 surround player. This is optimal for the viewer who wants to have the immersive experience, the plasma 2D or 3D enables the viewer to watch motion such as Sports and Action Movies and Concerts in vivid detail. Last year they came out with the world’s first Blu-Ray player. The Panasonic team has also made their products more energy efficient. The 2010 model is 40% more energy efficient than 2009
