Panasonic announced its new LRU60 Series of HDTVs for hospitality and digital signage applications, replacing last year’s LRU50 series. Five models are available including the 32-inch TH-32LRU60, 39-inch TH-39LRU60, 42-inch TH-42LRU60, 50-inch TH-42LRU60 and 65-inch TH-65LRU60. All of them use LED-backlit and have the industry’s lowest power consumption in its class.
The LRU60 series comes equipped with a built-in Pro:Idiom digital tuner for Pay-Per-View and Free-to-Guest programming support and an integrated LodgeNet b-LAN terminal adaptor. It also sports C.A.T.S. (Contrast Automatic Tracking System) ambient light sensor system to adjust screen brightness and contrast automatically based on the lighting condition of the room. The USB slot cloning feature allows users to copy TV settings onto a USB drive and install into other TV units.
The LRU60 Series starts at $535 and the 65-inch model will be priced at $3850.
