Panasonic on Friday unveiled its Toughpad 4K UT-MB5, the world’s first 20-inch tablet with a 4K resolution
display designed for sales, marketing and media professionals as part of a groundbreaking new Ultra-
High Definition Toughpad range.
A specialist performance model, ideal for 3D modelling and CAD applications, for use by technical professionals such as engineers, architects and designers will follow in the first half of 2014.
Offering a new digital viewing experience called 4K which is more than four times better than HD at 3,840 x 2,560 pixels, the Toughpad 4K UT-MB5 is a business rugged, portable tablet that breaks new ground in digital viewing with 4K resolution, collaborative working with touchscreen capabilities and a unique Panasonic Electronic Touch Pen for pin-point accuracy and annotation. The pen uses infrared signals to distinctly read every single pixel on the screen and communicates it with the tablet via Bluetooth, making it stand apart from commonly found capacitive digitizers. It is so accurate because it is able to recognize every individual pixel on the tablet screen, can recognize & record the pen tilt and can interpret 2048 levels of pressure, ensuring drawing or handwriting is reflected perfectly to the smallest detail.
