Is it really a surprise that a big Japanese electronics manufacturer like Panasonic decided to make an in-dash Blu-ray player for automobiles? Didn’t think so. This unit was shown off at the Tokyo Motor Show in Japan this week and as expected, it can do Blu-ray playback with HD output ala HDMI. You can add surround sound to the mix too if you want to really bling out your Lexus/Mercedes/Aston.
No other details are available, but boy this is some sweet Blu-ray goodness.
