Green lifestyle innovations on display at CEATEC

Panasonic Corp. is looking to promote the green revolution in the home and wider community with a display of cutting-edge gadgets and energy-saving devices for future generations at the upcoming CEATEC Japan 2010 exhibition.

The electronics giant is just one of around 600 companies that will be exhibiting at the annual technology show, the largest of its kind in Asia, and which organizers are hoping 200,000 people will attend this year. CEATEC stands for Combined Exhibition of Advanced Technologies and the title of the event this year is "Digital Harmony: Technologies for Comfortable and Eco Living."

Tying in neatly with that theme is Panasonic's offering, which is described as "various solutions involving the entire town for realizing a sustainable green lifestyle which is safe, comfortable and enjoyable."

The Energy Solution Zone, for example, will highlight the company's Home Energy Management System, which is designed to control the energy that is created, stored and saved in the home to achieve optimum energy efficiency that is in tandem with the homeowner's lifestyle.

The same zone will include intelligent Networkable Eco Navi Home Appliances that will elevate these everyday appliances to a whole new level as they are linked to other electronics.

There will also be solutions for environment-friendly cars, again linked to Panasonic's plans for the whole house, as well as "Energy Solutions for the Entire Town," which integrate the home with other buildings, shops and offices in a community through a common energy management system.

In the Network Audio-Visual Zone, the company will show off multifaceted three-dimensional presentations, including a 3D mass display that consists of 33 3D plasma screens ranging from 42 to 152 inches. The world's first consumer 3D camcorder and 3D-compatible Lumix G Micro System cameras with the world's first interchangeable 3D lens will allow consumers to create their own 3D content.

For professionals, Panasonic's 3D professional camcorders, 3D editing equipment and 3D imaging technology will also be on display.

CEATEC Japan 2010 gets under way on October 5 at the Makuhari Messe International Convention Complex, just outside Tokyo. Other electronics firms that will be exhibiting at the event include Fujitsu Ltd., Mitsubishi Electric, Toshiba, Murata Manufacturing and Nissan Motor Corp.
