At IFA 2011 Panasonic provided some insight on next year’s TV line-up. In 2012 Panasonic plans to launch larger LED backlit LCD-TV and even larger plasma TVs. Internet connected Panasonic TV will now be called Smart Viera.

Panasonic’s 2012 line-up

Panasonic’s 2012 TV line-up will be unveiled at CES 2012 in January 2012 but at IFA Panasonic has shared some information about the upcoming TV line-up.

First of all, Panasonic plans to release significantly larger LED backlit LCD-TVs. Today Panasonic uses LCD-TVs for screen sizes up to 37-42 inches and plasma TVs in larger screen classes. But in 2012 that is going to change and Panasonic’s LCD/LED and plasma ranges will overlap in sizes.

In 2012, Panasonic also plans to release even larger plasma TVs with almost “no size limit”. Today Panasonic’s largest mainstream consumer model is 65 inches but Panasonic also sells professional 85 and 103 inch monitors.

In the future Panasonic will rename their internet connected TVs to Smart Viera and at IFA 2011 Panasonic introduced the option to buy TV Apps (free Apps have been available for some time now). One of the new Premium features is the Panasonic store where users can buy peripherals such as Panasonic’s 3D glasses.
