The Ultra-Thin Hospitality HDTV Joins Other Members of the LRU60 Product Family That Received the Energy Efficient Designation in 2013

Newark, NJ, March 17, 2014 – Panasonic, a leading provider of hospitality technology solutions, today announced that its 65” hospitality HDTV TH-65LRU60 was recognized as a Most Efficient ENERGY STAR qualified products in 2014. Products that receive this designation prevent greenhouse gas emissions by meeting rigorous energy efficiency performance levels set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

For the hospitality industry, energy efficiency means less expenditure. Panasonic designed the LRU60 Series with innovative functions that greatly reduce power consumption while ensuring optimal performance. Energy-saving features include a built-in ambient light sensor feature called C.A.T.S.
