News TVs and Cameras lead the showcase of Panasonic’s upcoming products.

Panasonic held its annual Media Convention at the Atlantis in Dubai yesterday where they revealed some of their upcoming products for this year. The event kicked off with presentations about how well Panasonic is doing in the region but we’ll leave all those boring details to business sections of newspapers.

Things got interesting when Mr. Abby Thomas, Senior Manager for Flat Panels, Panasonic, got on stage and introduced the line-up of new Vierra TVs. Panasonic will be launching no less than thirteen 3D TVs and twelve LED TVs this year. Abby mentioned that Panasonic continues to remain the leader in large screen displays which are categorized as displays over 50″. What caught everyone’s attention was the 152″ panel on the show floor.

The new displays feature “Infinite Black Pro” which is basically their marketing buzz for a contrast ratio of over 5,000,000:1. In other words, blacks will look as filmmakers intended them to look. Indeed, LCDs and LEDs can’t usually provide the deep rich black that Plasmas can. We had a chance to catch up with Abby at the event and here is what he had to say.

Along with impressive Black technology, these new displays will also feature VIERRA Connect that puts apps on your TV and can use your iOS based device such as the iPhone or iPad to act as a remote. The following is a brief demonstration of VIERRA Connect that someone sadly cut-off before it could be completed. :(
