Panasonic Releases AS650-Series Smart TVs

Newark, N.J. — Panasonic on Friday released pricing and availability on additional models in its AS650 Life+Screen connected FullHD LED LCD TV line.

The lineup includes the 50-inch ($1,199 suggested retail) and 60-inch ($1,699) screen sizes in addition to the previously announced 55-inch ($1,499) screen size. The new models have launched exclusively through, the company said.

Panasonic said the line would be offered online “to start,” indicating that other retail distribution avenues may arise in time. It is one of only a couple of Life+Plus Screen-enabled TV series not sold exclusively, or in tandem with, Best Buy this year.

All three units support active-shutter glasses-based 3D playback and include Panasonic’s Beyond Smart features, providing an easy user interface and advanced picture quality.

The sets build on Panasonic’s My Home Screen personalization features introduced last year, including a more intuitive and personalized gateway with favorite apps and content, while the new My Stream feature enables seamless, automatic content recommendation. The sets are designed to learn user preferences and automatically recommend content that is targeted to each person.

Other features include a Voice Assistant to easily activate content searches and other functions with spoken commands; a My Home Cloud that allows downloading a variety of content and apps; and a new Remote Sharing feature to share video memos, messages and other information through mobile devices while away from home.
