Panasonic bow
Panasonic is putting a little holiday cheer into our summer with the release of its Canadian gift guide, and wouldn't you know it, there's some HD goodies in the works. Based on the product mix in the guide, we assume this stuff will make it to other regions in time for the winter holidays as well. Details on the gear are thin, but there's definitely some good stuff coming from Panasonic before the year is done. First up, we see the PT-AE3000 1080p LCD projector, a CAD $3,500 follow-up to the well-respected PT-AE2000U. Also on tap are a couple of Blu-ray players, named the DMP-BD35 and DMP-BD55. Both of those decks come with BD-Live functionality, but we're psyched about the 7.1-channel analogue outputs on the DMP-BD55 along with "audio grade components" (we assume that means "audiophile grade components"). No pricing on these Blu-ray players, but that can't stop you from starting up the not-so-subtle gift hint-dropping campaign, right? Hit the link for the full release.
