Panasonic DMW-SDP1 HDTV Photo Player : At the press conference in Paris Panasonic introduced the HDTV Photo Player DMW-SDP1 that allows users to view photos taken by a Lumix or other SD-enabled digital camera, in High Definition quality on a large screen TV. Through simply connecting the Panasonic SDP1 (using supplied HD component cable) to a HD TV, such as a Panasonic VIERA, and inserting their SD/SDHC memory card into the slot, users can view their photos in 1080i high definition quality. The included remote controller allows you to sit back, relax and enjoy smooth playback of high definition images with your family and friends. Operation of the remote controller is as easy as that of a LUMIX thanks to its omni-directional cursor.|

The Panasonic DMW-SDP1 also supports motion JPEG playback, irrespective of TV system. In addition to the normal VGA (640 x 480), wide aspect VGA (848 x 480) motion images, which can be recorded with LUMIX, the Panasonic SDP1 offers dynamic motion image playback which especially benefits viewing on wide aspect HDTVs. Furthermore, you can even enjoy the awesome high definition motion image (1280 x 720, at 15 fps) with natural detail reproduction that is recordable with the LUMIX new model Panasonic DMC-LX2.
