Panasonic’s latest multimedia audio system available in the US in this December
Remember our news back in October [CEATEC 09- Live] Panasonic All in One Multimedia Hands-On about the launch of this all-in-one multimedia device which serves not only as a photo frame but also an i-Pod dock, CD player, video player etc.? It’s been announced to be also available in the US in this December.
Panasonic today announced the debut of its first audio system with iPod dock and photo frame. The MW-10 combines several components into one sleek system, making it the ultimate multimedia solution for den, office, bedroom, dorm room or living room.
Sporting an elegant silhouette, the MW-10 sounds as good as it looks. It pumps out audiophile quality sound from its built-in CD player, and its FM/AM radio tuner has 45-station (30-FM/15-AM) Preset Memory. The speaker is constructed with rigid, low-density bamboo cones to achieve pure sound and crisp dialogue. Special diffusers installed in front of the speaker units disperse sound over a wide listening area. For robust bass sounds, the D.Bass function enhances bass in conjunction with the volume level.
The Universal Dock for iPod* plays music and video downloads. The MW-10 even has an included remote control which makes it easy to operate the iPod from a distance.
Boasting a 9-inch WVGA LCD, the MW-10 can display photos from a CD, SD Memory Card and internal memory. The 4 GB of internal memory stores image data for up to 6,000** photos and provides hours of viewing and listening enjoyment. With the CD playing background music, it can display a photo slideshow. In addition to a full-screen photo slideshow, the advanced display offers a versatile combination of screen options: clock and iPod track menu, calendar and photos, clock and photos, and audio and calendar.
An SD Memory Card slot and USB connectivity offer easy transfer of data from a PC or CD-R/RW. The MW-10 is Energy Star® qualified, and its UniPhier® LSI integrates all video signal processing circuits onto a single chip, which lowers power consumption and reduces the number of components.
Panasonic’s MW-10 will be available in December 2009 with a suggested retail price of $299.95.
