CES: Neue Panasonic 4k/Ultra HD-Fernseher mit Firefox OS

Panasonic kündigt auf der CES seine ersten 4k/Ultra HD-Fernseher mit „Firefox OS“-Betriebssystem an. Zusammen mit Mozilla wurde eine anpassbare Benutzeroberfläche geschaffen, die einen einfachen Austausch von Inhalten ermöglichen soll. Da Firefox OS auf Webtechnologien basiert, soll es zum Abspielen ausreichen, wenn sich die verschiedenen Geräte im gleichen Heimnetzwerk befinden. Für weiteren Komfort sollen eine Sprachsteuerung und der „Xumo“-Guide zum Finden von Inhalten aus verschiedenen Quellen sorgen. Erste Panasonic Ultra HD-Fernseher mit Firefox OS sollen im Verlauf des Frühjahrs 2015 in den Handel kommen. 

Press Release

Panasonic has collaborated with Mozilla to create an innovative, new, interactive User Interface powered by Firefox OS, which will be available on Panasonic’s new Life+Screen Smart TVs from this Spring. Panasonic’s 2015 line includes the CX850 Series, CX800 Series, CX650 Series, and CX600 Series.

New, Intuitive, Customizable User Interface

The new user interface is specifically designed to allow users to access preferred content, applications and content from connected devices quickly and easily, so they can:

Combine access to channels, devices, and applications into one single gateway for quick access.
Customize their experience easily by using the ‚Pin‘ function to bookmark their favorite apps, Web pages and even their paired connected devices for quick access.
Super connectivity across devices and platforms

As Firefox OS uses open Web technologies, you can send photos, videos or other content to your Firefox OS powered TV from any smartphone, tablet, or computer which has a Firefox browser or other compatible applications meaning that consumers do not need to be constrained into one ecosystem or brand.  Furthermore there is no need for any additional hardware to send content to your Firefox OS powered TV – you simply need to make sure that the device with your Firefox browser and your Panasonic Firefox OS powered TV are on the same Wi-Fi network.

Greater flexibility for Developers

Firefox OS provides superior flexibility to developers to create brand new applications and services through WebAPIs that unlock the power of the Web and enable connected experiences across platforms. In addition, for the first time, Firefox OS will allow TV on-screen notifications from applications, and, in the future, from compatible connected appliances.

Regarding Firefox OS on Panasonic’s 2015 Life+Screen Smart TVs, Andreas Gal, Mozilla CTO, said, „Firefox OS powering everything from smartphones to a new category of devices like TVs and streaming devices proves the flexibility and power of the Web as the platform. We’re excited about the collaboration with Panasonic because it offers consumer and developers a customized and easy to use way to take their Firefox Web experience across devices.“

Voice Assistant Pro

Panasonic’s 2015 Life+Screen TVs will feature advanced Voice Command functions.  Voice Assistant Pro* performs voice commands spoken directly to the TV without using a remote control. It is capable of performing various operations according to voice commands, such as changing channels and searching for content.

* Supported only by the CX850 Series.

Xumo® Guide

Panasonic’s 2015 Life+Screen TVs will also include Xumo® Guide, a built-in service that enables quick and easy discovery of content from multiple sources. One of the key features of Xumo® Guide is the ability to provide relevant content recommendations based on user’s viewing history, in addition, users can search for specific titles across multiple apps or browse content by genre from various VOD services.
