Consumer Product Release: 2013 Roadshow9th April 2013     By: Panasonic Media

The annual Panasonic Roadshow hit the road yesterday starting off in Auckland to launch the line up of new products for 2013.

The roadshow will travel nationwide visiting 13 locations including all of New Zealand's main centres Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch plus smaller cities such as Whangarei, Hamilton, Rotorua, Napier, Palmerston North, New Plymouth, Invercargill, Dunedin, Nelson and Gisborne.

New products from all consumer categories are released at the roadshow and retailers are introduced to the new line up for the upcoming year. Product categories include Optical & Media, Home Appliances, Audio, DVD & Blu-ray and Viera TVs.

This year the stand out product at the roadshow is the MAX700 stereo system. Product Manager Reagan Parkes says the MAX700 is Panasonic's first high performance stereo of its type.

We have managed to find a gap in the current audio market for a stereo that is extremely powerful but available in retail outlets to the general public unlike most DJ equipmentReagan Parkes.

 

With the capability to turn any home into a nightclub, the MAX700 has to be seen to be believed. The MAX700 has 2300W of output power, 4 way giant speaker box, full digital triple amp plus MAXDJ effect, maximised bass sound and 4GB of internal memory with the capacity to store 1000 songs.

Other stand out products launched at the roadshow include the DMC-FT5 Tough Camera, DMC-TZ40 Compact Camera, SC-NP10 Tablet Dock and Full HD Plasma Panel (TH-P60S60). Each year the roadshow attracts over 600 retailers throughout New Zealand with up to 300 attending the Auckland show alone.

While there are a number of wi-fi enabled cameras currently on the market, the new top-shelf travel compact Lumix TZ40 takes the function's simplicity to a new level with Near Field Communication (NFC) technology.D-Photo / Adrian Hatwell.
