Cameron to bring 3-D into living rooms
`Avatar` part of TV, Blu-Ray player push

James Cameron is taking his 3-D mission beyond the multiplexes, aiming to get a toehold in American homes with 3-D TVs and Blu-Ray players in a partnership with Panasonic while tubthumping his "Avatar" pic.
The manufacturer has been named exclusive audiovisual partner for the 3-D film and will promote it along with several of its upcoming products, including its Full HD 3-D technology, in a global advertising campaign.
A truck tour showing a clip from the film on a 103-inch 3-D HDTV will be part of the promo push.
