Panasonic is busy at NAB 2015 these days, that’s the National Association of Broadcasters, and what better place to show off all of Panasonic’s latest 4K production products and 4K technologies, including an updated Panasonic Toughpad 4K Tablet model for 2015 to 2016?
The first Panasonic Toughpad 4K Tablet was launched in 2013, and it’s a 20-inch Windows tablet with a 4K display.
The new updated model will feature a 3840 x 2560 resolution IPS Alpha display with a 15:10 aspect ratio. With a 20-inch screen this works out to 230 ppi. To make it happen in the first place, it has 16GB of RAM, so this is no budget tablet, that’s for sure (the list price is also $2,999). The processor is a 5th generation Intel Core i5 vPro processor.
Panasonic Toughpad 4K Tablet have been built for professionals involved in video production or those who really need sharp images, like in medicine during complicated surgery. So with a focus on that, it has ports like HDMI 2.0 input, Mini DisplayPort, USB 3.0, in addition to full range 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and Ethernet port.
This is a Toughpad, so beyond the 3-year warranty, it is built with a magnesium alloy frame reinforced by a glass fiber case to protect it and keep it alive after 30-inch drops to the back, or 12-inch drops to the side.
The new Panasonic Toughpad 4K Tablet will be launched in July. Accessories include an official optical electronic touch pen, and even a 120-watt car charger to keep it powered.
To celebrate the 4K focus at Panasonic in April, Panasonic is even having a massive sale on 4K televisions, where the 65-inch 4K TV Panasonic AX800 Series 4K (UHD) Ultra HD TV TC-65AX800U is cut from $3,999.99 to $2,199.99in a sale that lasts until April 30 when used with the coupon code “4K4U” during checkout, says Panasonic.
