Panasonic' Consumer Marketing Company of North America's 2012 line of Compact Stereo Systems, the SC series is comprised of six distinct models, all of which feature outstanding sound quality and offer users a pure, direct sound system with noise reduction capabilities that allow users to enjoy a crystal clear listening experience.  The SC-HC57, SC-HC37 and SC-HC27 offer sleek, ultra-slim designs with smart networking technology and can play music from a variety of music sources including iPhone/iPod, CD-R/RW and FM Radio.  Additionally, the SC-HC57 Compact Stereo System features AirPlay® which allows users to wirelessly stream music from an iPad, iPhone, iPod touch or MAC/PC directly into the device through a home's wireless LAN network.  AirPlay allows lossless transmission for the finest sound quality playback of a personal music library and provides a multi-room listening function.  The Panasonic SC-HC series of Compact Stereo Systems will be available nationwide in April 2012 and will have the following SRP's: SC-HC57 $199.99, SC-HC37 $149.99 and SC-HC27 $99.99.    

Extending the 2012 line of Compact Stereo Systems, the SC-AP01 and SC-MC07 introduces users to a new micro system concept coupled with unique design styles and user-friendly functionality.  The SC-AP01 is a wireless, metal bar system that offers clear and dynamic sound in a slim and stylish design.  Featuring nano-sized bamboo cone speakers to create audio with clearer vocals and crisper dialog, the SC-AP01 utilizes Aero Stream Port to create rich and robust bass by controlling distortion and Direct-Vocal Surround to expand sound throughout a listening environment to mimic a concert hall and is equipped with AirPlay® to wirelessly stream music from supported devices.  The SC-MC07 is the smallest of the new compact stereo system products.  Bluetooth® compatible, the SC-MC07 streams music wirelessly from iPhone/iPad/iPod, Blackberry and other smartphone devices (with Bluetooth capability) to offer full digital, clear stereo sound in the compact size of a cookie to create an audio device that can be placed virtually anywhere, or even used on-the-go.  The SC-AP01 will be available in June with an SRP of $169.99.  The SC-MC07 will hit shelves in July with an SRP of $69.99.

Panasonic's new Full HD 3D Blu-ray Disc™ Home Theaters, SC-BTT490, SC-BTT195 and SC-BTT190 employ advanced technologies to reproduce clearer, enhanced, theater-like surround sound to skillfully match high-quality 3-D imagery and are equipped with 3D Cinema Surround as a standard feature.  Additional expanded features also enhance the home entertainment experience.  VIERA Connect™(*1) has been expanded to offer users a greater variety of online content and the DLNA function allows users to access, browse and view content stored on a home network server.  All 2012 Full HD 3D Blu-ray Disc Home Theaters feature a digital music connection for iPod /iPhone, which minimizes sound degradation allowing users to enjoy their favorite iPod tunes with pure sound that is highly faithful to the original source.  All Full HD 3D Blu-ray Disc Home Theaters will be available in April with the following SRP's: SC-BTT490, $499.99; SC-BTT195, $399.99; SC-BTT190, $299.99.
