We reported about the Panasonic one-inch thick plasma LCD Z1 last month, further details have now been officially published in the press release after the jump. However, as you will know, the Z1 wasn’t cheap at all, the official press release below still hasn’t addressed as to what the price tag on this badboy will be.
Did you know today marks an important day in the history of one of our favourite household furniture / appliance – the television! January 26th is a significant date in the history of the television, as it was the day in 1926 that John Logie Baird gave the world’s first public demonstration of a true television system. This happened in his laboratory at 22 Frith Street in the Soho district of London and present for the demonstration were members of the Royal Institution and a journalist from The Times. To celebrate this momentous day, Sony have put together an infographic which plots the history of TV production over the last 50 years. It covers landmarks in technological advancements, and as you can see, many of these coincide with Sony’s own landmark models, showing you guys exactly how much Sony have been involved in the development and advances relating to television technology.
Thanks Mark for sending this in!
