It has a 56-inch screen, weighs 27 pounds, and is less than half an inch thick.
They showed off the set during a CES keynote this morning in Las Vegas. Besides a TV, Tsuga also showed off a massive tablet and covered the company's efforts in energy management and batteries for cars, airplanes, and the home.
Tsuga and broadcast journalist Lisa Ling speak with Phil Aram, GM's chief information officer, about the Chevy Malibu Eco behind them that uses Panasonic technology for some of its systems.
Panasonic is adapting its home energy solutions to cars, Tsuga said. This includes automotive battery management, as well as the power management and heat management systems that are behind electric-vehicle batteries.
Panasonic's automotive partners include VW, Audi, Daimler, Chrysler, Ford, GN, Tesla Toyota, Nissan, Honda, and Mazda.
