CES 2013: Panasonic WT Series TC-L55WT60

1:46 /

The WT60 series features a minimalist approach to aesthetics that is encompassed by a clear pedestal with an elegant metal bezel.

-Hello, I'm Luke Westaway for CNET here at CES 2013 taking a look at Panasonic's flagship LED television. This is the WT60 series. Okay, this television comes in 2 sizes. You can have an either 47 inches or if that's not quite big enough it comes in a 55-inch model as well. Let's take a look at the design for a moment 'cause I really, really love this slim metallic Bezel and I'm particularly enamored I have to say with this gloss effect stand. It gives the TV a kind of floating effect. I think it's quite attractive. Something else to keep an eye on up here while we're speaking about design is this camera. This is a webcam that pops up so that you can do Skype chats and stuff using your TV and it should pop up automatically, which is good news and save you a few seconds of precious effort. In terms of display technology, we've got local dimming kicking off in here. We've also got Panasonic's Clear Panel Pro tech. Now, it has to be said the previous versions were a little bit touchy when it came to black levels, so it remains to be seen whether these new versions can impress us and win our hearts back. Else way, you get all the modern comforts of a swanky internet connected television, so you get Viera Connect which is Panasonic Smart TV system that if you're web browsing apps. We've already mentioned Skype. You'll see get voice interaction so you can bark orders to your television if it's not doing what you think it should. And you get Swipe and Share, which means you can theme video or photo, things like from your smartphone on to your television. So, an early thumbs up from me on the design. Let's hope that the pitch quality can measure up. There's no word on pricing, but it will be out around spring time so we don't have a very long to wait. I'm Luke Westaway for CNET and this is the Panasonic WT60 LED series.
