The Panasonic TH-65VX300U Professional Plasma Display Named as CES Innovations 2012 Design and Engineering Award Honoree
2012 International CES
NEW YORK–Panasonic, a provider of professional display and digital signage solutions, announced that it has been named an International CES Innovations 2012 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree for the TH-65VX300U Professional Plasma Display. Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, engineers and members of the media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 32 product categories.
The 65” display’s color reproduction approaches digital cinema standards making it ideal for both the home theater and post-production markets.
The display’s ultra high-speed drive technology achieves clear and extremely detailed 3D video and also enhances 2D content. The advanced drive provides smoother gradation, which is double the smoothness of conventional models, resulting in richer gradation expression in a dark area of the screen allowing the viewer to see what is happening in extremely low-lit areas.
For home theater users, this high-speed drive technology makes images, such as those in sports and action films, crisp and clear. The display also features a scaler bypass function which allows for pure degradation-free images and the use of an external scaler. With 3D images, the TH-65VX300U Professional Plasma Display features phosphor improvements and original lighting controls that deliver clear images with virtually no crosstalk. The plasma display is housed in a durable, brushed aluminum frame, giving it a high-end look that matches virtually any room decor. Full specs for the TH-65VX300U plasma display are available online.
“This award is a testament to the design, quality and engineering that goes into all Panasonic products,” said Rick Albert, Vice President, Flat Panel Displays & Hospitality, Panasonic Solutions Company. “The 3D-capable TH-65VX300U Professional Plasma Display offers unmatched picture quality to those looking to take that movie theater experience home.”
The prestigious Innovations Design and Engineering Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), the producer of the International CES, the world’s largest consumer technology tradeshow, and have been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976. The Best of Innovations honor is awarded to the products with the highest judges’ scores and will be featured in the Innovations Design and Engineering Showcase at the 2012 International CES.
The TH-65VX300U will be displayed at the 2012 International CES, which runs January 10-13, 2012 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Honorees will also be displayed at CES Unveiled: the Official Press Event of the International CES from 4-7 p.m. on Sunday, January 8 in the Venetian Ballroom of the Venetian.
The Innovations entries are judged based on the following criteria:
• Engineering qualities, based on technical specs and materials used
• Aesthetic and design qualities
• The product’s intended use/function and user value
• Unique/novel features that consumers would find attractive
• How the design and innovation of the product compares to other products in the marketplace
Products chosen as an Innovations honoree reflect innovative design and engineering of the entries. Examples may include the first time various technologies are combined in a single product or dramatic enhancements to previous product designs.
Innovations 2012 Design and Engineering honoree products are featured on www.CESweb.org/Innovations, which lists product categories, as well as each product name, manufacturer information, designer, description, photo and URL.
