Panasonic announces at the CES 2008 new products powered by tru2way technology, including Plasma HDTV, HD DVR set-top boxes and portable DVR devices. Panasonic also announces a line of IPTV enabled HDTVs.

tru2way is CableLabs’ OpenCable specifications that are being adopted by cable providers nationwide.
Panasonic did not get into the specific HDTV models that will support tru2way.

Panasonic is also introducing the flagship PZ850 series, which is the industry’s first IP enabled television.

Panasonic’s VIERA full HD 1080p PZ850 series features four models - the 46-inch class TH-46PZ850, the 50-inch class TH-50PZ850, the 58-inch class TH-58PZ850 and the 65-inch class TH-65PZ850. The introduction of the IP enabled televisions, a technology that provides access to on-line content directly from the TV with VIERA CAST™ technology, is one of many advances found in the PZ850 line. In addition, the PZ850 series features a Pro Setting Menu, allowing the consumer to access professional calibration software; an improved native resolution contrast ratio of 30,000:1 and a dynamic ratio of 1,000,000:1; Digital Cinema Color Re-Mastering; 24p native reproduction; Game Mode; an SD memory Card slot; RS-232C connection; four HDMI connections; increased luminous efficiency; lead free panels; 100,000 hours to half brightness and a PC input. The 850 series further expands the capabilities of the SD Card feature by utilizing the H.264 codec to display high definition video recorded on a HD camcorder equipped with the H.264 codec.
The Panasonic PZ850 is scheduled for a Fall release.

CES 2008 officially starts today. The flood gates to the CES show floor in Las Vegas will open and we get to see all the beautiful new TVs, gadgets and booth babes.
