Nuance is a company that has been around for a long time producing software for computers and other devices that allows voice interaction rather than typing. Over the years, Nuance has expanded its software from something available on computers for people who don't want to type for one reason or another to being used in cars and on many mobile devices. Panasonic and Nuance have now teamed up to make smart TVs even smarter.
Panasonic isn't just looking to get out of the plasma TV business but to shed its little-loved smartphone division too, Japanese reports claim, with HTC and chip fab TSMC tipped as potential bedfellows for the mobile team. Having seen its ELUGA range of waterproof phones fail to gain traction, Panasonic is considering shedding the ailing division altogether, the Sankei Shimbun reports, with insiders pointing to some unexpected interest.
The plasma television market has been shrinking for a number of years with some of the biggest companies in the segment having already ended production of their plasma TVs. Plasma TV technology has been quickly replaced by LCD technology over the years. One of the few companies still producing and selling plasma screen TVs is Panasonic.
Panasonic has unveiled pricing and availability for its new 2013 line of home theater systems. The new 2013 lineup includes the SC-HTB770, SC-HTB370, SC-HTB70 and SC-HTB65 home theater systems.

Windows 8's finger-focus has spawned some interesting form-factors, and following in the footsteps of Lenovo's IdeaPad Yoga comes the Panasonic Toughbook CF-AX2, a rugged twist on the 360-degree hinge concept we've been playing with here at CeBIT 2013. A compact 11.6-incher with a 1366 x 768 10-finger multitouch display, the CF-AX2 runs Intel's latest Core i5 processor for lengthy runtimes - Panasonic claims up to eight hours on a single charge - and, thanks to some hot-swappable battery magic, allows you to switch out for a new power pack without shutting down.
Panasonic has announced that it has a new series of projectors that are now shipping that don't have a lamp. The lamp inside normal projectors is a significant source of recurring cost because they have a limited lifespan and often cost several hundred dollars to replace. Panasonic's new Solid Shine series LED/laser light source projectors have no bulb.
Panasonic has created micro color splitters, which split the light directed at image sensors to create bright images in low-light situations. This both eliminates the needs for color filters and boosts the color sensitivity two-fold when compared to your average image sensor with color filters. This could have a positive impact on mobile device cameras and similar devices, which are notoriously poor in low-light settings.
