Panasonic Co-Create with YouTube Video Creators to Promote Its VIERA 4K TV

Panasonic Corporation is promoting its VIERA 4K TV, an ultra-high definition set with a massive 65-inch screen, as the perfect screen to enjoy watching online videos such as YouTube videos. To appeal to those who watch, the company decided to engage with creative people who produce such YouTube videos at the first place.

Through crowdsourcing platform eYeka, Panasonic connected with creative people from all over the world and invited them to create amazing, surprising videos showing how a story or creative moment would be transformed now that they have a bigger and more beautiful canvas for their creativity.

The competition had worldwide appeal with 34 videos received in the space of 5 weeks, from 13 countries as diverse as France, Japan, the USA, Russia, India, China and the UK. Some of the Japanese participants were students from the Nihonkogakuin College in Tokyo. The 3 winning videos, selected by WIRED magazine and Panasonic are:

1. "Dance FX" by niwina (France)

This work shows the amazing dance performance, effectively using a VIERA 4K TV. The multi-roles of video creation, such as performing, directing, filming and editing, by himself is remarkably impressive.

2. "Tiger in the living room" by JulianCa (Colombia)

This video successfully depicts the impact and sensation that the large-screen, high-definition VIERA can provide using animation, which is difficult to communicate with a small screen, like that of a smartphone.

3. "BMX" by aceblvd (France)

This work shows sensational BMX action with great background music by shooting with a LUMIX GH4 from the Panasonic 4K product line, and enjoying it on a VIERA 4K TV.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...
