Panasonic Convention 2013 - Mon 11th Feb
« on: 09 February 2013, 11:36:03 AM »

David and I will be heading to Panasonic's annual convention which starts on Monday the 11th of February, where the company will reveal its 2013 range of Viera plasma and LED LCD TVs for the UK and Europe, as well as outline its product roadmap and strategies for the year ahead.

As usual, we'll be bringing you live text commentary (mostly done by David, the 100wpm typist  :worthy:) from the opening plenary where the "beyond the reference" Panasonic ZT60 plasma is expected to be unveiled for European markets.

The plenary starts at 1:30pm Central European Time (CET), but our chat room will be open 15 minutes earlier at 1:15pm. For those in Britain who wish to jot this down in their diary, please remember that CET is one hour ahead of GMT, so it'll be 12:30pm and 12:15pm UK time on the 11th of February instead.

Here's where you can find our live text coverage:

Warmest regards
Vincent

Slander! It's 120!  :lol:
But if we're talking cswpm (correctly spelled wpm) then it might go down to about 40 after dinner...

Or, indeed, on the morning of the second day...

We just saw that they're going to be demoing the ZT60 against one of the Pioneer Kuro models. That to me suggests confidence in the quality!

It also kind of suggests that Kuro were 5-years-ahead-of-its-time-cool. ;D

ST60 will be available in 42, 50 & 55 inches in the UK. No 65" due to lower sales last year.
