Panasonic Announces High-Performance 20-Inch Toughpad 4K Tablet

Performance Model of World's First* 20-Inch 4K Tablet Powered by Intel® Core™ i7 vPro™ Processor, NVIDIA® Quadro® GPU to Serve as Mobile CAD, Video Workstation

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Panasonic, an industry leader in reliable and innovative mobile computers since 1996, today at the 2014 International CES announced the U.S. availability of the Toughpad 4K UT-MA6 tablet, the performance model of the world's first* 20-inch tablet with a 4K resolution display. Featuring an Intel® Core i7-3687U vPro processor with an NVIDIA® Quadro® K1000M GPU, and an advanced beyond Ultra HD 4K display providing a lifelike viewing experience unlike any tablet on the market, the Toughpad 4K performance model is built to serve as an ideal mobile workstation for professionals in visual-intensive fields such as computer-aided design (CAD) and video editing.

The Toughpad 4K performance model further expands Panasonic's Toughpad line to create the world's most comprehensive portfolio of enterprise-focused tablets. It expands the capabilities of the groundbreaking Toughpad 4K UT-MB5 tablet announced in 2013, a business-rugged tablet with a brilliant 230 pixel-per-inch display that goes beyond Ultra HD resolution. Optimized for the Windows 8.1 Pro operating system and built on the Intel® vPro platform, the Toughpad 4K tablet bridges the gap between the needs of IT professionals and workers by including unique hardware and OS-based enhanced security features, remote manageability and capabilities designed to increase end user productivity and data protection.

"Professionals in visual-intensive fields such as CAD and non-linear editing have traditionally been stuck working behind a desk away from where decisions are being made, due to a lack of mobile technology on the market with the large, high-quality displays and high-performance processors these users require," said Kyp Walls, director of product management, Panasonic System Communications Company of North America. "As a lightweight 20-inch tablet PC with beyond Ultra HD resolution and high-performance processing power, the Toughpad 4K performance model enables these workers to get things done in the field that previously were only practical at a desktop workstation, greatly expanding productivity, creativity and efficiency in a number of areas."
