Panasonic Wins Green TV of the Year Award

Panasonic has won the first ever EISA Green TV of the Year Award for 2005 and 2006. The winning 28-inch widescreen (model number TX-28PN1, for those of you keeping score at home) won because it shows how more efficient consumer electronics equipment can save energy and resources, all while providing top-notch quality and performance. The judges concluded that "this set is built on an eco-designed chassis with reduced wiring and a small transformer lead. It aims to reduce energy consumption both when operating and in standby mode -- plus it boasts a high level of recyclability." While both the EISA (European Imaging and Sound Association) and Panasonic are mum on the exact numbers, the EISA has the credentials to represent that they know what they're talking about; they're the largest editorial multimedia organization in Europe, with a membership of 52 audio, mobile electronics, video and photo magazines drawn from 18 European countries. ::EISA Awards
