Panasonic - with its partners - enables Smart Cities

Together with its strategic partners, Panasonic strives to develop better ways of living. Smart Cities such as Fujisawa Sustainable Smart Town (FSST), Tsunashima SST and ‘Future Living Berlin’ are leading examples of how Panasonic’s relentless innovation brings together future living concepts today. Energy solutions ranging from battery storage to solar technology and heat pumps enhance these cities and elsewhere, demonstrating new methods of energy creation, storage, management and efficiency.

In the retail environment, Panasonic is transforming the shopping experience with various retail solutions. LinkRay, a new Panasonic technology, connects to people’s smartphones to enable brands to share personalised offers and information direct to the consumer. Meanwhile, Panasonic’s smart video analytics solution allows retailers to gain more insight into customer behaviour to optimise promotional areas in shops.

Lifestyle Showcase – Experience fresh food fast

Panasonic’s 2017 small kitchen appliance range is focused on the Japanese inspired ‘Experience Fresh’ philosophy which caters to the growing number of Europeans who are seeking a healthy, sustainable lifestyle and want to consume fresh food fast.

Promoting healthy eating, the very popular MJ-L600 Slow Juicer is now equipped with a smoothie attachment, and the latest SD-ZB2522 breadmaker continues to lead the way in great-tasting gluten-free recipes, to now include cake, pasta and wholegrain bread. Also on display is Panasonic’s new and powerful hand blender, MX-S401, (coming to stores in autumn), expanding the small kitchen appliance range, with an original 4-blades blending system and drive control for a high cutting performance. Finally, a new microwave oven range embraces healthy living by incorporating a steam cooking functionality to the grill category, for quickly prepared meals which retain essential nutrients from fresh ingredients.

Health and beauty just got sleeker

With 12 new products for men and women, including groomers, foot care and innovative oral care devices, Panasonic helps everyone to look and feel their best.

The new GD shaver/trimmer series offers men a high-end product range that allows for the perfect balance between power and precision, and features a new innovative design for even more controlled shaping and exceptional definition.

A professional barber will be present at the Convention to speak about his experience using Panasonic products, and specifically the new LV 5 Blade Shave series, as well as giving an introduction to the GD60 Shaving Trimmer, all featuring innovative Japanese blade technology.

For women, there are five new epilators and a new foot care device, all of which allow for salon-quality treatment within the comfort of the home.

Never miss life’s unmissable moments with a LUMIX camera

Panasonic’s leading range of LUMIX cameras ensure every moment can be easily captured, and Panasonic’s 2017 line-up is no exception. With the DMC-FZ82, Panasonic has just introduced a new model to its popular high zoom FZ bridge camera series. The FZ82 with its newly integrated 18.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS Sensor, and Lumix DC VARIO 20mm ultra wide-angle lens provides not only a 60 times optical zoom, but also 4K video and 4K photo.

For the first time in Europe: visitors can now see GH5 working samples and experience via touch & try an ultimate hybrid camera that seamlessly captures moments in 4K 60p / 50p video and faithfully reproduces 4:2:2 10-bit 4K video, alongside the largest micro four third lens line-up in the industry.

The GH5 will be featured in the entire booth, showing various applications, such as a ‘shooting corner’, a 4K movie-set-style shoot area, and an AF application - all to explain the remarkable capabilities of the device. This premium camera will offer exceptional performance for professional photographers, videographers and emerging photo/video-hybrid creators to capture their vision in ease and style.

Panasonic TV picture quality brings Hollywood Home like never before

Panasonic has put to use its years of experience in TV technology to develop visual systems that bring the cinema directly into the home, while being inspired by the latest principles of interior design. This year Panasonic’s groundbreaking 2017 OLED and LED series of TVs will be on display in the Hollywood cinema experience area.

The EZ1002 and EZ952 4K Pro HDR OLED TVs set new TV Reference Levels for 2017. The professional-grade EZ1002 and EZ952 unlock the full contrast and colour potential of the latest OLED screen technology, with unprecedented black levels and the most accurate colours ever seen, resulting in pictures of extraordinary accuracy and spectacular beauty.

The flagship EZ1002 also represents the ultimate blend of form and function with its powerful Dynamic Blade Speaker sound system, which is integrated into its stand, so that the screen seems to float magically above the speaker. Tuned by the engineers of the company’s acclaimed audio brand, Technics, the dynamic blade speakers will enable the very best sound for the OLED TV.

Encounter a new wave of music in Home AV

Panasonic’s range of home audio devices allows the user to listen without limits. On show this year is the ALL-Series range that can be set-up throughout the home to create a single system, high-quality audio, no matter where you are.

Also on display are Micro CD HiFi Systems, with enhanced high-res audio sound quality and the MAX HiFi Systems for an all-in-one audio experience with a trendy, urban design.

Setting new security standards in Smart Home cameras

Panasonic is bringing peace of mind to the home with its range of smart living products to make life more comfortable, safe and convenient. The KX-HNC800 Full HD Camera launched within the Panasonic Spring 2017 lineup will provide a live feed from the event, so visitors will see for themselves just how well the HD quality allows the user to monitor the home.

Important footage is never missed with an expedient pre-recording function, where imaging begins two seconds before the camera's motion sensor is activated. For those times when monitoring isn’t required, the camera includes a manual, sliding privacy shutter that covers the camera and mutes the microphone.
