Panasonic, a division of Matsushita Electric Corporation of America, exhibited what it claims are several industry firsts during the CEDIA Expo 2003 on Thursday.

The consumer electronics maker said it introduced the nation's first cable-ready digital TV set, the widescreen (16:9) 53-in PT-53WXD63 (diagonal screen measurement), high-definition projection TV. The PT-53WXD63 is said to be the first to be certified by CableLabs.

The TV can reportedly connect directly to a digital cable and terrestrial broadcast system. With the use of an authorized CableCARD (which can be purchased from cable operators), the TV can receive digital cable services, including premium channels, without requiring a cable set-top box.

The manufacturer also introduced its SC-HT1000 home-theater-in-a-box system (HtiB) The system is said to be the first to feature a built-in DVD recorder.

Other exhibited HtiB products include the SC-MT1, SC-ST1, and SC-HT900 HtiBs, all of which include a set of acoustically matched home theater speakers plus subwoofer and feature a high-quality, progressive scan DVD player. The company’s SC-HT800V, SC-HT810V, SC-HT425D, and SC-HT405D also feature HighMAT, a new standard for sharing digital media between PCs and a variety of consumer electronics devices that was co-developed by Panasonic and Microsoft.
