Panasonic Announces New Series of Professional Panels for Hospitality Industry
May 16, 2006 3:27 PM
Panasonic, America’s best-selling professional plasma brand, debuts a new series of displays created expressly for the hospitality market. The new models include two advanced high-definition panels—42in. TH-42PR9U and 37in. TH-37PR9U—and two lower-cost standard-definition panels—42in. TH-42PG9U and 37in. TH-37PG9U. The ultimate in-room amenity, these high-brightness, high-contrast plasma displays are also highly beneficial for lobbies, ballrooms, entrances and hallways, fitness centers, restaurants, retail shops, and more.
“Panasonic is the worldwide leader in plasma TV, and this is the result of unmatched image quality, simplified operation, and low-maintenance design. As the industry leader, we can offer excellent price points and value to our customers,” says Robert Harris, vice president, marketing, Panasonic Broadcast. “The new 9-series hospitality models and the Panasonic brand name are a perfect fit for premium hotels, resorts, and condominiums.”
Key benefits of the 9-series hospitality models include: exceptional brightness even in bright rooms; an ultra-compact design with the speakers positioned under the screen, facilitating the use of a larger display in a smaller space (a 42in. 9-series model is only as wide as a 32in. LCD TV with speakers on each side); an ultra-wide viewing angle, ensuring that images look the same from anywhere in the room; a durable, “child-friendly” scratch-resistant glass surface unlike standard LCD; and the ultra flexibility of a multi-function slot architecture for adding connectivity options and features, including a Tuner Board compatible with the major hospitality Pay Per View systems.
The TH-42PG9U and TH-37PG9U SD models will be available in May at suggested list prices of $2,395 and $2,195, respectively. The TH-42PR9U and TH-37PR9U HD models will be available in August.
