Matsushita BS Digital LCD TV System With DVD Player And Internet Browser
Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., Ltd. introduced a new 15.2-inch BS digital LCD TV system featuring a built-in DVD Audio/Video player and Internet access using a remote control handset. The new LCD TV will be launched in the Japanese market in February 2001 and available on the company's "PanaSense" and "LifeVit.com" shopping sites on www.sense.panasonic.co.jp (Japanese only) and www.lifevit.com.
The new LCD TV supports all of the BS digital broadcast services introduced recently in Japan—HDTV broadcasting, datacasting and BS digital radio broadcasting—as well as access to conventional Internet services, all through the remote control handset. Sending and receiving e-mail without a keyboard and browsing the Internet (using Internet Explorer) are possible using the handset system.
