Panasonic Upgrades Toughpad 4K Performance Tablet
The Toughpad 4K also supports HDCP 2.2 for digital rights management to protect content by creating a secure connection between the tablet and source.Consumer electronics giant Panasonic announced upgrades to the Performance version of its Toughpad 4K tablet, also known as the FZ-Y1D. The upgraded Toughpad 4K increases device performance while adding features to improve functionality for professionals across a variety of visual-intensive fields, such as photography, videography, computer-aided design (CAD), high-end retail and healthcare. The Toughpad 4K also supports HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) 2.2 for DRM (Digital Rights Management) to protect content by creating a secure connection between the tablet and source. "The Toughpad 4K 20-inch is a business rugged tablet, so rugged enough to travel with but not designed for regular outdoor use," Kyp Walls, director of product marketing at Panasonic, told eWEEK. "A 20-inch tablet provides much of the flexibility of smaller tablets but with a large enough display to been seen by multiple users and to make a big visual impression. With a HDMI 2.0 input, the newest Toughpad 4K can be used as a portable on-set monitor to check focus on 4K cameras or review stills."
To meet the horsepower needs of content management, production and editing, the Toughpad 4K Performance model now features an Intel Core i7-5600U vPro processor and an AMD FirePro M5100 graphics chip.
