Panasonic Japan have announced a pair of new plasma HDTVs, the 65-inch TH-P65V1 and the 58-inch TH-P58V1. Each features Panasonic’s latest neoPDP panel technology with a contrast ratio of 40,000:1, together with the usual VIERACast streaming media and internet widgets.
Each set also has an SD/SDHC card slot which can play back video, image and audio content, including AVCHD footage pulled directly from an HD camcorder. Obviously there’s 1080/24p Full HD support, plus a virtual 5.1 surround sound system that uses the HDTVs stereo speakers.
YouTube streaming video and a nifty CCTV system that integrates with up to four different wireless security cameras round out the main specifications. The two VIERA sets will land on September 15th, price to be announced.
