Panasonic is set to launch its own dvd-playing device in 2020, as it looks set to follow in the footsteps of Sony, Sony Pictures, and Samsung, which have all made their own portable dvd readers.
The Panasonic dvds will reportedly be available in a range of colors, as well as the new dvd reader, which will be powered by Sony’s PowerDVD, as the company aims to compete with Samsung and Sony for the future of video content.
Panasonic’s dvd players are expected to be compatible with the new PowerDVD 10, which it plans to release later this year.
The company will also reportedly release a new model of dvdcards in 2020 that will include the new power cord, while Panasonic will also offer a new set of USB cables that will be compatible to the new reader.
Panasonic’s plans are in contrast to Sony, who has announced its own slate of dvd reading devices in 2020.
The company’s dvdplaying device, dubbed the dvdreader, will be available as an 8GB USB stick and as a 10GB USB drive.
Sony’s new dvplayer, dubbed “SNS,” will be the first portable dvdrone capable of playing multiple types of dvi movies.
The new dvi player will be sold as a 7.1-inch, 3200×1800 resolution touchscreen device.
The device will reportedly feature a 3.5mm headphone jack, HDMI port, and USB 3.0 port.
Panasonic will release a 12-inch model of the dvi, dubbed Panasonic dvi 5, in 2020 as well.
The device will be priced at £499 and will reportedly have the same screen size as the dvj player, which Panasonic describes as a “full HD IPS display” with a resolution of “1440×2560.”
The dvi will reportedly also have a 1.5-inch color touch screen and a 720p webcam.
