Panasonic, a leader in High Definition and Full HD 3D technology, announced the debut of LIHD Celebrity Hookup – a television-style online program that will feature an inside look at how some of today’s most visible celebrities, athletes and entertainers utilize the latest in consumer electronics to enhance their lives. LIHD Celebrity Hookup will premier on LivingInHD.com on November 18 at 8:00 pm ET. The first webisode will feature TV and film actor Kevin Connolly, star of HBO’s critically-acclaimed series Entourage.
LIHD Celebrity Hookup is hosted by lifestyle technology expert Janna Robinson, who discovers from each featured celebrity their current consumer electronics needs and then “hooks up” their home with the products they need to meet those needs. Each new LIHD Celebrity Hookup webisode will run exclusively on Panasonic’s LivingInHD.com website. Following select shows, the featured celebrity will conduct a live web chat on LivingInHD.com to discuss the show. New webisodes will run approximately once each month and are expected to include a range of popular stars from TV, film, entertainment and sports. Details on future webisodes and celebrities will be announced on LivingInHD.com at a later date.
First launched in August 2007, the Living In HD program was created to help people get the answers they need about the emerging HD, and now 3D, products coming to market by communicating with real people who are actually using the technology in their everyday lives. More than 90 families have been given a suite of interconnected Panasonic High Definition products, including VIERA Full HD 3D Plasma IPTVs, 3D home theater systems, Blu-ray Disc™ players, LUMIX digital cameras and HD camcorders. They provide feedback on how they use the products in their everyday lives and share their own inspirational and creative project ideas through the LivingInHD.com community website.
“We are very excited about the debut of LIHD Celebrity Hookup and think our LivingInHD.com members and visitors to the site will really enjoy this new facet of the LIHD community,” said Tom Murano, Panasonic’s director of brand management who directs LivingInHD.com. “The goal here is to show consumers that everyone, celebrities included, are enjoying the benefits of all of the amazing, cutting-edge technology that is out there from Full HD 3D Home Theater and connected TVs with Skype video calling, to amazing digital cameras and HD camcorders that really open up your creativity, keep you connected with loved ones on a whole new level, and deliver entertainment into your home unlike anything ever seen before.”
LIHD Celebrity Hookup debuts at 8:00 pm ET on Thursday, November 18 exclusively at www.LivingInHD.com and will be followed immediately by a live video web chat with actor Kevin Connolly.
