Panasonic Starts Family Ad Effort

Secaucus, N.J. — Panasonic has launched a new advertising campaign — called Bring Back Family Time — that offers a comedic look at family life, as an element of its integrated Living In High Definition program.

The campaign made its debut over the weekend on ABC and in USA Today. The spots depict a family’s inability to connect due to their hectic schedules.

Also offered in the effort is an experiential program, in association with researchers from the Center for Urban Research and Policy at Columbia University that will document how high-definition technologies can enrich the lifestyles.

As part of the program, as many as 30 families will be awarded a $20,000 suite of high-definition products including plasma HDTVs, Blu-ray Disc players, HD camcorders, digital still cameras and other products and services.
