Panasonic have unveiled their Viera RT2B 3D TV, an “all-in-one” set that includes a built-in 3D Blu-ray player and HDD recorder.
While people are still only taking tentative steps towards widespread adoption of 3D tech, Panasonic seem to have the right idea here. Priced definitely at the higher end of the market (around £3,500 when converted from Yen), it’ll allow people access to 3D content straight out of the box, providing they snap up a 3D Blu-ray disc to go with it.
The HDD and Blu-ray can also combine to make recordable Blu-ray discs from the content you’ve got stored on the drive.
Available in 46 and 42 inch sizes, the Viera RT2B 3D TV goes on sale in Japan on August 27th. We’ll keep you posted if Panasonic decide to bring it over to UK shores, which we very much hope they do.
