Panasonic Gets tru2way Certification For 42- And 50-Inch HDTV's, Selling By Christmas

vieratv_540x420(2).jpgPanasonic has the go-ahead to stock shelves with tru2way HDTV's before Christmas after receiving certification for a 42-inch and 50-inch set from CableLabs. tru2way if you remember is kind of the next generation of the CableCARD, but enables two-way communication between your set and cable provider without a set-top box. Interactive applications like video-on-demand content can be delivered straight to your HDTV. At the moment the Panasonic sets will however need a cable operator-provided CableCARD even to use tru2way. It'll be interesting to see how tru2way sets sell if they make it into stores by Christmas. We're not so sure the timing is right at the moment, and even though the CableCARD has largely been a failure, looking long-term we're pretty bullish on tru2way.
