Panasonic goes 3D-crazy at Munich product launch
European press not quite convinced by all the fuss
by James Rivington
Panasonic has come out with all-guns-blazing in an attempt to convince consumers that they should invest in 3D this year.
At the company`s annual product launch – this year held in Munich, Germany – new Lumix cameras, camcorders and AV systems were left in the shadow of Panasonic`s new 3D offerings.
The actual product announcements came yesterday before the event started. 13 new ranges of plasma and LCD TVs were launched, including new 3D-ready Viera VT20-series PDP TVs, and many other AV products – the biggest being the DMP-BDT300 3D Blu-ray player.
3D was always going to be a big thing for Panasonic at this show, but it was surprising to all who attended exactly how much time was spent going over the 3D products and the technologies inside them, at the expense of other product ranges.
