Panasonic - 2013 HDTV Line-up

The new 2013 HDTV line-up for Panasonic is here!

The 2013 line-up for Panasonic is here and Panasonic is holding true to their belief that Plasma is the better choice for cinema lovers and that it gives people a price break over LEDs for larger screen displays.

Panasonic introduces several new models in 2013. The WT60 and the DT60 series join the Panasonic LED family and the ST60, VT60 and ZT60 series plump up the Plasma family.

In 2013, Panasonic offers passive 3D on the LED TVs and active 3D for their Plasma TVs. The new models sport a hexa (6-core) processor to operate the Smart TV and their picture quality features more effectively. Voice operation, file flicking and writing on the screen give you myriad ways to interact with your TV.

Panasonic's LED 2013 Line-up

For 2013, Panasonic zeroed in on design and performance for their LED TVs. Skimpy only applies to Panasonic's bezel this year. Encased in a super thin frame and panel, Panasonic is still able to load up their new models with passive 3D capability, an IPS panel and hexa processor along with other updated Panasonic features.

Panasonic's Plasma 2013 Line-up

Panasonic's Plasma VT series was a success in 2012 and they are back and better in 2013. A reappearance of the high-end ZT series in 2013 comes bearing a pre-calibrated panel coined the "Studio Master". Design improvements continue in Panasonic Plasma TVs, showing none of the heft of older PDP (Plasma Display Panels) and far less bezel to impede your viewing pleasure.

The Panasonic ST, GT, VT & ZT models include a new interface device called the Touch Pen. With this accessory, you can make notes or drawings on pictures right on the TV screen then send the edited pictures back to your tablet or smartphone.
