Panasonic Keeps CES Promise, Launches Twitter on VIERA CAST

Posted by at 3:30 pm on August 17, 2010

Panasonic announced the activation of  Twitter on Panasonic  VIERA CAST enabled HDTVs today. Twitter will also be available on VIERA CAST-enabled Blu-ray Disc Players at a later date. The planned addition of Twitter, a real-time global information network, was announced in January at CES.

Twitter is the latest feature to be added to VIERA CAST, Panasonic’s proprietary IPTV function. Earlier this year, Panasonic added Skype voice and video calling, Netflix, Pandora, and Fox Sports to an already robust list of popular entertainment and information sites including Amazon Video-on-Demand, YouTube, Google’s Picasa Web Album, Bloomberg and a weather service.

“Since we introduced Panasonic VIERA CAST IPTVs three years ago we have added more and more of the top entertainment and social networking sites in the world,” said  Merwan Mereby, Panasonic’s Vice President, Corporate Development. “The addition of Twitter to VIERA CAST further strengthens the interactive options Panasonic VIERA HDTV owners can now use to communicate with family and friends worldwide. Consumers with VIERA CAST-enabled HDTVs can now tweet on Twitter, video chat via Skype, share videos on YouTube and digital photos via Google Picasa right from the comfort of their living rooms.”
