11 Jan 2009 | Rasmus Larsen |

Don't miss anything from CES 2009. See our <a href=/ces2009fair.php><b>huge CES 2009 section</b></a>.<br /><br />Panasonic has introduced its expanded line of VIERA LCD-TVs at CES 2009. This increases the number of LCD-TVs from five LCD models in 2008 to 12 in 2009. In addition to the enhanced product line-up, Panasonic added an iPod docking station to four of the new VIERA LCD models and introduced a new screen size – a 19-inch class to the LCD family. To accommodate the expanded product line and to increase Panasonic’s presence in the LCD market Panasonic will also open a new LCD factory in Western Japan, with production scheduled to begin in 2010. When in full operation, the factory will be capable of producing 15 million 32-inch panels per year.<br /><br /><b>G1 series</b><br />Panasonic’s top-of-the-line LCD is the VIERA G1 series, featuring the 1080p TC-L37G1, 37-inch and the TC-L32G1, 32-inch model. Both TVs offer 120Hz Motion Picture Pro3 technology, IPS Alpha Display panels and the VIERA Image Viewer that provides the consumer with an easy way to view and share their digital photos via the TVs’ built-in SD card reader. <br />The G1 LCDs also feature VIERA Link, Game Mode, three HDMI inputs, and a swivel stand. The G1 series will be available in April 2009.<br /><br /><p align=center><img class="imgresponsive" src=pictures/panasonicg1lcd.jpg alt="Panasonic G1 series"><br><i>Panasonic G1 series</i></p><br />- <i>“Panasonic is one of the few companies that is technologically agnostic, and we believe that the choice of video entertainment is directly related to the consumer’s applications – where they will be watching the TV and what they like to watch,”</i> said Bob Perry, Executive Vice President, Panasonic Consumer Electronics Company. <br /><i>“With our expanded product lines in both LCD and Plasma, Panasonic firmly believes in giving the consumer choices for their entertainment decisions and we are perfectly positioned to do just that. Panasonic’s Plasmas have been an industry leader for years and we are fully committed to achieving that status with our LCD line-up. Last year Panasonic’s LCD TV was top rated in a leading consumer publication and we have every intention of building upon that success.”</i><br /><br /><b>S1 series</b><br />The VIERA S1 series, available in March 2009, features two screen sizes, both of which have 1080p resolution – the TC-L37S1, 37-inch and the TC-L32S1, 32-inch. These two televisions feature Motion Focus Technology, IPS Alpha Panels, and the VIERA Image Viewer. Other S1 features include VIERA Link, a PC input; Game Mode, and three HDMI inputs. <br /><br /><p align=center><img class="imgresponsive" src=pictures/panasonics1lcd.jpg alt="Panasonic s1 series"><br><i>Panasonic S1 series</i></p><br /><b>X1 series</b><br />Panasonic’s 720p VIERA X1 LCD series introduces both an iPod entertainment kit and the new 19-inch screen size to the 2009 LCD family.
