Panasonic has released information on its new Premiere Home Theatre Plasma series. The 65in and 50in Panasonic TH-65VX100W and TH-50VX100W are Full HD plasma TVs with a native 1080p resolution.

A 60,000:1 contrast ratio means that deep blacks and bright, clear whites are able to be displayed simultaneously, while an industry-leading 7160 steps of colour gradation allows colours to be displayed accurately and without loss of detail. In addition to targeting home theatre enthusiasts, Panasonic believes the screens are suitable for broadcast and production studios.

A series of picture adjustment options allows professional-grade colour management for 16 categories including colour, contrast, white balance and gamma. These settings can be saved independently for each input, allowing installers or production professionals to tailor the screen for different situations.

Panasonic’s newest generation of Dynamic Black Layer technology allows deep, solid blacks with a new coating to reduce pre-discharge light emissions from plasma cells. The VX100W series televisions feature an optical filter with a colour range covering 120 per cent of the HDTV colour standard, and an 18-bit digital signal processor converts video for optimum display on the panel.

The Panasonic TH-50VX100W plasma TV retails for $7138, while the TH-65VX100W plasma TV is priced at $13,749. Both models are available now.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
