New Releases by Panasonic at CES 2011

The CES – Consumer Electronics Show held year after year showcase thousands of gadgets expected to hit the market within 4 to 6 months of the show. However, some of them never see the light of day. Each year brings in a new wave of technology that keeps transforming the world. The CES 2011 was no less dramatic, with Panasonic introducing a state –of –the -art 12  foot wide HD 3D TV. The Panasonic 12 foot wide TV besides being in the spotlight for its strength in H D also displayed a real super thin flat screened TV featuring Plasma technology.

History wise the I F A 2005 show in Berlin saw Philips introducing the 120 inch L E D screen TV which they launched at the C E S 2006 show. Since then, various companies have tried their hand at large size television, including Sony of Japan who introduced the 150 inch screen in the year 2008. However, commercially these products were yet to see the light of day. Panasonic, the new reigning king of plasma televisions at the C E S 2008 after its wimpy looking 103 inch Plasma TV presentation then, has broken all barriers in C E S 2011. Panasonic showed its 12-foot wide TV at CES 2011 and is termed to be the world’s first ultra-large full HD 150 inch Plasma flat screen TV. The TV provides high quality full HD 3D video on the world’s largest scale for a direct view display as well as ultra high 2D display.

The 2k x 4k resolution and universal 220 volt running system is really awesome. The Panasonic crosstalk reduction technology has been a crucial development in producing clear and crisp 3D images. According to Panasonic, the technologies used include one of the industry-highest 5,000,000 : 1 native contrast ratio for phenomenal black reproduction. Panasonic has now emerged the leader in full HD 3D ultra – wide Plasma televisions. Panasonic is one of the largest players marketing digital plasma giants as presentation TV screens and High Definition display against use of large L E D displays or color computer projectors.

Panasonic does not aim only setting a record in the Guinness book of world records but has also emerged as a focused player in the large sized high definition 3D TV market. Panasonic’s unveiling of the gigantic television measuring almost 13 feet across created ripples at the annual Consumer Electronics Show 2011 in Las Vegas, considered the Super Bowl of electronics and a Mecca for techies. Panasonics mega TV actually caught the convention’s eyes fair and square. This TV allows you to watch your 3D movies and sports programs without wearing those cumbersome 3d glasses which are really irritating. With the development in Blue ray DVD and 3G as also 4G internets, these large TVs are expected to really add value to vision.

New Rugged, Bright-Lens and Super Zoom Cameras from Panasonic

Panasonic which has been in the digital camera arena for some time has launched its new products targeting various consumer categories. These new products will be serving to the needs of various users and camera men who use the device in their own way. Some keep it delicately and while others don’t; some need high zooms and some need more clarity. Panasonic has launched its products for fulfilling such needs. The new models fall in the following three categories: the Super Zoom Cameras, Bright Lens Camera, and Rugged Cameras.

The bright lens cameras have been developed to cater the need of better picture quality and the clarity. This is done by letting the lens open more wide and capture more light into it. This extra light reaching to the sensor results in better picture clarity. The term “Bright lens” was introduced by Sony for promoting their wide lens cameras and now has become a criterion for selecting a camera for purchase. Conventional cameras open the lens only up to one third of the diameter due to which less light is captured by the sensor which results in low picture clarity. Panasonic’s Bright lens opens up to half of its diameter and results in considerable, rather amazingly improved quality. Bright lens as the name sounds has nothing to do with the lens but the electronics which allows extra light to enter in the camera. The best model launched by Panasonic under this category is Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 which will cost roughly around $500.

The other addition in Panasonic’s digital cameras list is its Lumix TS10. This falls in the Rugged category and as the category name tells it actually is rugged in nature. It can bear free fall from few feet and can also dive approximately 10 feet in the water without getting damaged. The sibling TS2 is a better diver and can withstand around 33 feet of water if drowned. This will really interest adventure photographers who want to carry there camera in the waters but cannot because of its fragility. This camera has already earned the editors rating because of its price which is around 400 Dollars. The less rugged TS10 will cost around 250 Dollars.

The last category introduced by Panasonic is the Super Zoom category and the Lumix DMC-FZ1000 makes its place in it. FZ1000 comes with whopping 24X zoom at a maximum of 14 Megapixels resolution. Not only the zoom is good but this camera also let the user to record video with stereo audio recording using a microphone. Microphone jack is something new launched by Panasonic and along with this the frame rate used for video recording is also quite nice. This camera captures 5 frames per second at best resolution of 14 Megapixels and 60 frames per second at low resolution of 3 Megapixels. This camera will cost around 500 dollars and if you find the price high then you can go for a slower version named FZ40 if you can compromise the quality and speed to an extent.

Predict TV niches coming from the top Manufacturers

TVs have undergone serious transformation in the recent years where the companies manufacturing them came up with overwhelming yet exotic devices to attract more and more people towards their brand. The competition started with simple slim LED models and then moved on to the plasma TV models that provided better quality compared to the LCD ones. The race then moved on to 3D world and it seems the hype is settling down a bit.

For a company as big as Samsung, Sony, Panasonic and Vizio, this isn’t the state to rest a bit rather they need to come up with something even better to stay on the top of the list in their respective niche. Its time that they start defining new trends and releases even with the previous inventions that they have been working on to stay in the market. There was a time when a TV was a TV only but things are not the same now. There are many other factors that have been involved into the selection criteria that include size, components, as well as features that make the product a distinct choice altogether. The products that these companies have recently introduced might make a clear guess of where are these great buyers heading.


Samsung has always been a technology renderer that has been providing with adequate expansion in the technology every time by coming up with a distinct product. It seems that the manufacturer will not be coming up with the LED or Plasma TVs anymore. The company is expanding in LED 3D TVs lately and offers the highest quality in the 3D televisions available in the market. The company is going very good internationally as out of 300,000 3D Televisions sold between March to June, 270,000 belonged to Samsung. Samsung has 18% share in the international market of LCD TV that is 7% more compared to previous years.


Sony was controlling 11.3% in the start of this year with respect to the LCD market and continues to control the market not only in the Television markets but also with the gadgets and other electronics as well. June marked the launch of a firmware update in PlayStation 3 that brought in the 3D feature. The company has recently filed a patent for split screen multiplayer gaming technology that too in 3D mode where each player has a different screen within the same Display unit. Sony even has TVs that are intelligent enough to turn off once there seems to be no one watching them. They have a wide arena to expand their technology apart from the TVs only.


Panasonic is leading the Plasma TVs in terms of fan followers and brand royalty. Plasma TVs from Panasonic account for 37% shares in the market that is the highest with Samsung following at only 14% comparatively. Many of the analysts and reviewers around the market consider Panasonic’s Plasma TVs to be the best in the market.


Despite facing a lot of competition, Vizio has placed itself on the top of the list of LCD televisions and has the leading technology involved in the price that many a people can afford easily. They sell low price HDTVs in large quantities to the common people so that they enjoy the technology just as the elite people can. They are coming up in the 3D arena with cheap technology again where the classes will cost no more then $10 compared to the next available for $100.

Now, it time that you make the decision of what niche of TVs are you after and you will certainly find this helpful for your next possible buy.
