So much news has been slamming the Web since this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2013 kicked off; it’s hard to keep up. For over four decades, CES (News - Alert) has been reaching out to global markets and connecting the industry to enable innovations in the consumer electronics market for future growth and success.
Panasonic (News - Alert), a featured exhibitor and keynote speaker, has made quite a splash at the show thus far, having revealed new innovations and industry-leading, thought-provoking strategies for the future. The consumer electronics giant, who offers everything from robust HDTVs and toughbooks to SIP phones, has certainly proven its continued consumer commitment and dedication to ensuring success. Because of this, it only seems right to provide a one-stop-shop of what the company has bestowed upon us so far.
For one, Panasonic unveiled its all new Bluetooth Bone Conduction Headphones this week at the event. Its unique RP-BTGS10 headphone sounds like a great idea and has many consumers crossing their fingers in hopes of seeing it stocked in stores soon. The company explained in a statement that what sets this product apart from the rest is that its wireless transmission is via bone conduction, which allows the user to listen in to simultaneously listen in to “other important sounds.”
While this may at first seem really hard to grasp, think about it – we all crave headphones that offer powerful, noise-cancelling sound, but on the other side of the spectrum, we hate having to always rip them off to listen in to an announcement or when we’re asked a question, etc. Because of this, Panasonic’s headphones boast a microphone that enables users to record their voice, take notes or even accept phone calls while listening to music or any other content, TMCnet reported, where the microphone picks up the song through vibrations in bone conduction.
“Panasonic has always been a leader in sound-quality and innovation and with the new RP-BTGS10 Bone Conduction Headphones, we are taking our headphone offerings to the next level of technological and sound advancement. The RP-BTGS10 model will be an ideal companion for sport enthusiasts including cyclists, joggers, runners and more, allowing them the freedom and flexibility of a wireless headphone while also giving them the opportunity to listen to their favorite music while not blocking out other outside sounds.” elaborated Tom Hanston, product category manager, Panasonic Consumer Marketing Company of North America.
Also this week at CES, Panasonic made countless headlines after revealing its advanced smart television. Its DT670 line of Smart TVs were especially impressive, reported TMCnet, which pushes the limits of user engagement and interaction. Touting a feature called “My Home Screen,” the new TV offers a personalized homepage that pre-organizes consumers’ favorite content from multiple sources. Another interesting functionality is its Swipe & Share 2.0, which allows users to share photos and videos from their smartphone or tablet. In other words, with just the swipe of your finger, you can transfer your, pictures to the TV, and then even write on them to create new images, which can then be sent by e-mail.
In addition, the company surprised many with the announcement of its 4K OLED HDTV, 20-inch tablet. The tablet, supported by Windows 8, is being touted as a “business product for photographers, engineers, architects, and other users who could use a very large, very high-resolution touch screen in the field,” according to one report. While many are very interested to see how this will fare among the sea of tablets out there, it is something which has not been exactly been seen on the market yet.
Rounding out this week is news of Panasonic launching two new Toughpads. Aimed for rugged and tough use, a 10-inch version FZ-G runs Windows 8 Pro, while the other – a seven-inch JT-B1 – runs Android (News - Alert) Ice Cream Sandwich. The company claims that the battery can run up to eight hours and also boasts an optional microSD slot, one report notes, making them ideal options for those involved in mission-critical, high-mobile fields such as the military, construction and healthcare. The tablets range from $1,300-$2,900 and will be available in March.
