Panasonic has extended its bonus promotion for James Cameron’s $2.8 Billion blockbuster, Avatar, in full HD 3D format in the run up to Xmas.
The new bonus 3D Avatar Home Theatre pack is on offer to customers who purchase any eligible Panasonic 3D TV between 1 November, and 31 December, 2010. The Home Theatre pack will include the 3D movie on Blu-ray disc, a 3D Blu-ray Home Theatre System, plus a bonus pair of medium sized 3D eyewear to the total value of $1,348.
Matt Pearce, Group Marketing Manager, Viera, Panasonic Australia, said: “We are excited to bring Avatar in 3D exclusively to Panasonic’s customers and for the very first time to lounge rooms.”
The promotion has been extended to include Panasonic’s range of Viera Full High Definition 3D TVs with the long-awaited TH-P65VT20A and TH-P58VT20A. These larger models join the TH-P54VT20A and TH-P50VT20A to offer consumers even greater choice in 3D viewing.
The move is set to drive sales of 3D TVs in the run up to Xmas. The movie, Avatar, has been chosen because it sets the standard for the 3D cinema experience, said Pearce.
“Panasonic through the use of Neo Plasma sets the standard for the home theatre experience by utilising the benefits of Neo Plasma technology. Superior speed, colour, contrast and moving picture resolution all ensure the very best home theatre experience possible. There really is no better way to experience Avatar than watching it on one of Panasonic’s Full HD 3D Neo Plasmas. We believe this promotion provides consumers with a really compelling incentive to embrace 3D this Christmas,” he added.
