Panasonic Praises tru2Way Agreement
Panasonic on Monday praised the recent agreements between CE companies and a consortium of cable companies to roll out the cable TV technology known as tru2way. Pansonic, which backed the technology, has accepted the standard, as has Intel, PC Magazine reported this week, joining Sony, Samsung, and others.
“Together, with this landmark agreement, multiple innovative industries are expanding choice, convenience and confidence for cable consumers,” Robert Perry, the senior vice president of Panasonic Consumer Electronics Company, said in a statement.
In late May, Sony announced that it had agreed with the National Cable and Telecommunications Association to begin beaming cable directly to TVs using the tru2way technology. The NCTA is a consortium of the nation’s six largest cable companies- Bright House Networks, Cablevision, Charter Communications, Comcast, Cox Communications, and Time Warner Cable- which cover about 80 percent of the nation’s cable audience.
