Panasonic UK will be bringing new plasma TV into its Viera lineup - TH65PV500 1366x768 8th generation panel with 3000:1 contrast ratio. Well, it is not the announced 1080p but still is a good move from Panasonic. This 65-incher includes a standard definition tuner that is capable of receiving NTSC, PAL, and SECAM signals. The TV has a neat feature of being able to record on to a SD card in MPEG 4 format. This is particularly useful for people who would like to take their shows on the road. In compare to other such technologies, one would have to transfer recorded show to a computer and then copy to the flash media. With Panasonic TH65PV500 it will become a snap. TV also has a PCMCIA slot to view still images. As you know you can buy a PCMCIA to whatever media type converter, so this feature makes it possible to view your pictures from virtually any kind of flash media.
As of today, Panasonic has not put any information on their UK web but there are merchants who already are taking pre-orders for TH65PV500.
