NEWARK, N.J. — Panasonic declared its intentions to defend its share of the U.S. market from a host of new Ultra High-Definition TV players by giving the press an up-close look at its just-launched 65-inch L65WT600 Ultra HD edgelit LED LCD TV. The set, which is available now at a $5,999 suggested retail, packs a host of cutting-edge features, including HDMI 2.0 (supporting 4K/60p resolution) and Display Port 1.2a input jacks, and an advanced up-conversion system that the company believes will set it apart from the competition. During the demonstration, at Panasonic’s new eco-centric headquarters, here, the company put the new model up against similar 65-inch Ultra HD sets from Sony and Samsung for side-by-side comparisons.
