Tasty Panasonic 3D TVs and Blu-ray players on the way

Following its new product reveals at CES 2012, Panasonic has finally dated its 2012 line-up of 3D televisions and Blu-ray players. Among the tech topping the bill is the 50-inch Panasonic Viera TC-P50ST50, with 3D, full HD, and built-in Wi-Fi and web browser, available from later this month. More like that, this way.

The 50-inch TV is just one of many new Panasonic launches heading to retail and online stores this month. Other TV sets due to launch include the Panasonic Viera TC-P5UTC50 and the Viera XT50 range.

On top of built-in Wi-Fi and web browsing, both sets offer full HD 3D viewing, and built-in 2D to 3D conversion. You’re also looking at DLNA connectivity to pair each TV up to your home streaming set-up, two HDMI inputs to hook up a Blu-ray player and games consoles, and two USB ports on each TV.

New LED televisions will also begin appearing in stores. The Panasonic Viera TC-L55E50 is a 55-inch LED TV that is Wi-Fi ready, comes with DLNA connectivity and has four HDMI ports. The more HDMI ports, the better: it means you won’t have to keep continually swap which machine you have hooked up to your telly.

Coinciding with the influx of Panasonic’s well-stocked television range will be the release of Panasonic’s latest full HD 3D Blu-ray players such as the Panasonic DMP-BDT500, capable of converting 2D images into 3D from DVDs and Blu-ray discs and DVD video recording.

Look out for all of the above trickling into stores from later this month through to May 2012. The televisions have yet to be priced, so do keep an eye out. We’ll bring you more when we hear more on the individual models, and where you can buy them.
