For 2012, Panasonic is going to be putting a lot more into some of its compact theater systems. Instead of having to put together a home theater with lots of separate components, the company says that its new Blu-ray 3D home theater systems should have everything you'd need. More importantly, all three are promising to deliver that instant home theater experience at an affordable price.
At last week's Consumer Electronics Show, the company unveiled the SC-BTT490, SC-BTT195 and SC-BTT190. All three are brand new Blu-ray 3D theater systems for 2012, and promise both 3D support and theater-like surround sound. Features across the entire line include smartphone control (via Panasonic's free Smartphone Remote Control app), DLNA support, integration with the iPod and/or iPhone, and Panasonic's own VIERA Connect service.
