panasonic-2015-launch-multiroom-01

Panasonic has a second go with multi-room, streams CD and radio

The first time we saw Panasonic give multi-room audio a thwack, we saw something a little “me too”, with speakers for your home. This year, though, Panasonic appears to have some ideas of its own.

WD joins the Plex club with an app for MyCloud

With the amount of data we make at the moment, it’s probably not a bad idea to have a network storage device in your home, but if you’re already using a WD drive for movies and the like, things may get a little more interesting.

Onkyo introduces Atmos to another amp, but you’ll still need a grand

Dolby’s surround-heavy Atmos sound technology seems to be taking its time to get out there, and the lack of movies sure isn’t helping, but at least there’s one more model out there to choose from.

Panasonic’s 2015 TV range is mostly 4K, heavy on Firefox

If the past two years aren’t an indication, then let it be said now: 4K is here to stay, and while we’ve seen LG and Samsung show their Ultra HD wares, now its time for Panasonic to dish the goss and reveal what it has in store for Australia in 2015.

Blu-ray finishes the UHD Blu-ray, expect 4K BDs next year

Ultra High Definition content is next to impossible to find in this country, but Blu-ray could well be the saviour, with a new Blu-ray disc on the way.

Panasonic shakes the room with “air quake bass” sound systems

Will Smith and Jazzy Jeff might have gotten everyone shouting “Boom! Shake the room!” but an update to speakers from Panasonic could just to that itself.

LG goes wide for monitors, small for projectors in 2015

If you still like an external monitor or projector, LG will have a few options in both categories, with the emphasis this year being on size.

Sony dives into multi-room audio with amps, speakers

We’ve seen Samsung, LG, and Panasonic attack the world Sonos dominates that is multi-room audio, and now it’s Sony’s time to shine, with more than just speakers, arriving with an amp or two as well.
