lru60_main.jpgWith all the power-hungry toys we feature here at HomeTheaterReview.com it's easy to forget the impact they can have on our utility bills. And, while, admittedly, it's not most people's biggest concern when buying a home theater component, it can make a difference. Panasonic seems to think so, at least, and is trumpeting the fact that its 65" TH-65LRU60 HDTV was named as a Most Efficient Energy Star-qualified product. Geared towards the hospitatlity industry, the TH-65LRU60's energy saving will be felt most by a venue that has dozens of them running all day long, like a hotel, restaurant or sports arena.

"As budgets tighten, hotels expect not only high levels of functionality and performance, but also energy efficiency for in-room HDTVs"

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. (Contrast Automatic Tracking System) that automatically adjusts the television's screen brightness and contrast to suit the lighting of the room, and helps to lower power consumption overall.

"At Panasonic, we aim to provide the hospitality industry with a wide range of leading edge, energy efficient displays to help them reduce electricity costs and offer their guests a best-in-class in-room television experience."
