Panasonic Praises Onkyo's Decision to Use EZ Sync(TM) System Control in High-End Audio/Video Receivers as a Win for Consumers

Panasonic congratulated Onkyo Corporation and its Onkyo USA subsidiary for their decision to use the Panasonic-developed EZ Sync(TM) feature in their Onkyo brand audio/video receivers. EZ Sync(TM) simplifies the connection of audio and video devices in a home entertainment system and enables control with a single remote control.

"We are pleased to see EZ Sync being adopted by a well-respected home entertainment brand like Onkyo," said Hideaki Harada, President of Panasonic Display Company. "This is an excellent added benefit for consumers who have purchased EZ Sync-compatible Onkyo audio and video receivers. They can now link them with EZ Sync-compatible Panasonic Plasma TVs, Blu-ray Disc Players or DVD recorders to enable even greater home theater ease of use and convenience. We expect that the EZ Sync feature will continue to grow in popularity this year both in Japan and overseas." Introduced in 2006, the EZ Sync(TM) feature is a two-way communication protocol based on the HDMI standard.
