Panasonic - Covering You from All Aspects

From digital signage, to outdoor TVs, to projectors, to plasmas—Panasonic offered a lot to see in a short amount of time.

Notable was their 85-inch interactive plasma, which was running a full Windows operating system. The unit was also available in a 65-inch version. The 65-inch version may find it’s way into the educational market as a touch and learning tool for students. I don’t know about you, but I surly would have retained more in school if it were interactive.

Like Sony, Panasonic also was debuting a Laser Projector; sadly all available on hand ‘experts’ were occupied, so I don’t have any specs. It is exciting to see new projection technology at the show—not just based in resolution, but also based in the mechanics and life of the unit.

An issue with outdoor displays is the internal temperature of the unit. Once it gets too hot, the screen goes black. Reacting to this issue, Panasonic had introduced a new series of outdoor units with built-in fans. This keeps the units cooler and was demonstrated with a blaring light shining on the unit. It was still cool to the touch and I was there at the end of the day. The only wrinkle is this adds filer replacement, but it only needs to be done once a year. These units are a fully outdoor unit—able to handle weather from any direction.
