What do you think of a HDTV that is smart enough to recognise your face to tailor content to your liking? What if the TVs can also understand voice commands in two languages?

Panasonic Malaysia says that the new LED and plasma HTDV models for its Smart Viera range offers such smart features.

The TVs, says Panasonic, have built-in cameras which recognise the viewer, while the "My Home Screen" offers viewers quick access to their personalised content.

The built-in camera can also be used for making video calls via Skype or record a video memo.

Users can also link their smartphones or tablets with the TV wirelessly — this will allow them to upload content from their devices to the TV to watch it on the big screen.

Users can interact with the TVs by issuing voice commands either to the Smart Viera’s remote or a smartphone that’s connected to the TV to search the Internet or even adjust the volume.

At the moment, the TVs support two languages — English and Mandarin.

Panasonic says the new Smart Viera TVs will be available starting next month. The price for the plasma models start at RM2,599 and the LED TVs at RM3,199. — Chong Jinn Xiung
