Panasonic today announced the launch of its first fully wireless home theater system, the SC-ZT1, a total entertainment solution designed to impress even the most enthusiastic and demanding consumer.

“Technology must be designed to empower the customer, and with Panasonic’s wireless technology, homes across the Middle East can benefit from a cable free environment,” said Mr. Hitesh Ojha, Senior Manager – AV Categories, Panasonic Marketing, Middle East.

“A superior home theater system, the SC-ZT1 brings cinema environment into the living room. Panasonic’s new vertical speaker technology will allow enthusiasts to experience unrivalled sound quality.”

The SC-ZTI reproduces uncompressed audio data via a wireless 2.4-GHz frequency band that ensures high-quality sound. Four speakers placed vertically inside a slim pole helps achieve a parallel sound system, creating a lifelike virtual 7.1 sound from four ultra slim pole-type speakers.

Ideal listening conditions are achieved even when lying down or sitting in front of the TV. Also, because the sound is produced in a parallel configuration, it remains crisp and clear with minimal reflected sound from the ceiling or from the floor.

The speakers also boast an integrated subwoofer. This long-stroke woofer, with a diameter of approximately 12 centimeters, is built into the speaker stand and generates sounds from the low-frequency range to deep bass. Because it uses a Down-Fire structure, which releases the sound facing downward toward the floor, powerful and deep bass sounds are achieved within a compact body.

Even though the SC-ZT1 is a two-speaker system, Panasonic’s virtual technology lets users enjoy Dolby® TrueHD and DTS™-HD 7.1-channel surround sound. Users can take wireless freedom a step further by adding a VIERA TV, Panasonic Blu-ray DiscTM player, creating a totally wireless home theater system in which both images and sound are transmitted without cables. Even those with space constraints can enjoy vibrant sounds.

Features
Speaker cables are completely unnecessary with the SC-ZT1. This means you no longer have to worry about tripping over cables or put up with the hassle of hiding cables under your carpet. Audio data is sent uncompressed over a wireless 2.4-GHz frequency band to ensure high-quality sound. This wireless configuration keeps your home theater system neat and uncluttered.

Ultra Slim Pole Speaker
A unique pole design has been created by using Panasonic’s newly developed slim and flat type speakers. By arranging four speakers vertically inside the pole, a parallel sound system is achieved. This provides ideal listening conditions from virtually any position, standing or sitting. Also, because the sound is produced in a parallel configuration, it remains crisp and clear with minimal noise from ceiling or floor reflections.

Integrated Woofer
This long-stroke woofer, with a diameter of approximately 12cm, is built into the speaker stand and generates low-frequency sounds that are close to those in the range of a subwoofer. Because it uses a Down-Fire structure, which releases the sound facing downward toward the floor, powerful and deep bass sounds are achieved with a compact body.

7.1ch Virtual Surround
Even though the SC-ZT1 is a 2-speaker system, Panasonic’s virtual technology lets you enjoy Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD 7.1-channel surround sound by combining it with a DMP-BD60 Blu-ray DiscTM player. If you don’t have the space to install eight speakers, you can still enjoy life-like sounds that rival 7.1-channel systems.
