Use your Phone as a Remote. Enjoy!
0:00 We have here the new Panasonic Viera App version 2.0, which will be released in the Spring of 2012. Some of the new functionality on this app allows me to go into the media section of my phone and view the video, music, and images that I have been recording through this particular device. And for them to look at video, and choose to play any of those videos recorded, I highlight the video. This is a one-to-one experience: it’s small screen. Only I can really enjoy it. But this year, with the new applications, I can touch that video and I can then flip that image up onto the Panasonic Viera screen and enjoy the video to a wider audience!
0:49 I can then adjust the volume, or I can pause, fast-forward, and rewind that video . . . flip it. It is a nice application for this year!
1:02 I can also go back to my media list, and highlight. Lots of people use mobile devices for the still image. Again, I can share this with a wider audience by touching the screen, and flipping upwards!
1:18 The still image will appear on the screen. Of course, I have the slide-show function, where I can go through all the still images in this device. I can pause, fast-forward, and I also have some audio playing in the background.
1:38 One other feature this year is that we can enjoy the large screen television image on our mobile device! This is an Android-based platform. So I will go to the Viera viewer, and I can then enjoy the video – the picture – from the large screen Viera displayed on my mobile device. When it is displayed [points to mobile phone], then I can change the channel up and down, increase the volume, etc. This will also play images from the hard desk drive – if you have it attached to the television – the SD card, or the usb stick, on certain models of the Viera television.
2:23 You can also, if you leave the room, turn off the screen on your large screen Viera, and still continue to enjoy the video [unintelligible - "image" (?)]. When you come back to your large screen Viera, you can reactivate the screen, and we can come out of that particular application.
2:46 We also have the normal TV Remote functionality, where you can change the particular channel on your Viera television, or increase the volume. All your traditional remote control functionality is available on this application!
3:11 We can see here the Viera app on my iPad, where I can change the channel or increase the volume on it. But, if I choose to browse on my iPad or on my iPhone, then rather than doing it on this device – AGAIN – I can flip this image up on to the screen of my 2012 Viera, then enjoy surfing on a large screen environment! I can then use the iPad as a mousepad, then enjoy the surfing experience!
3:41 Another good feature this year is I can also bring the image DOWN from the television to the iPad, so that everything that can be seen previously on the television, and also all the internet server, can be brought DOWN directly to the ipad to enjoy!
