LAS VEGAS -- January 8, 2013

Today during the opening keynote address at the International Consumer
Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada, Panasonic^®  Corporation
announced the development of a new “4K Tablet” with a 20-inch 4K IPS Alpha LCD
and a high precision pen. It is expected to significantly enhance the way
Architects, Engineers and Construction (AEC) professionals view and interact
with digital drawings. Targeted to become available later this year, the
tablet’s 20-inch IPS Alpha LCD panel contains more than four times the
resolution of Full High Definition. It leverages the touch capabilities of
Windows 8 and includes a high precision digital pen for making notes on the
panel’s screen. This lightweight and less than an half inch thick tablet is
incredibly slim, portable and represents the future of design review, bid,
estimation, RFI response, and plan room access to drawing sets.

To help introduce this new technology to the AEC industry and demonstrate its
endless possibilities, Panasonic is collaborating with Bluebeam^® Software, a
leading developer of PDF-based collaboration solutions for the design and
construction industry, for R&D, product testing, and promotion.

“The upcoming 4K Panasonic tablet emulates the way design and construction
professionals interact with printed drawings while giving users an incredibly
high resolution view, making it simple to migrate from paper-based to digital
workflows,” said Bob Dobbins, Vice President, Corporate Planning & Strategic
Initiatives at Panasonic Corporation of North America. "The potential of this
technology is magnified when combined with the power of Bluebeam’s PDF-based
markup and collaboration solutions for the design and construction industry.”

“When we first saw the prototype for the 4K tablet, we were blown away by the
opportunities this device will offer project teams in the office and at the
jobsite,” said Richard Lee, CEO and President at Bluebeam Software. “We are
excited to work with Panasonic and lend our knowledge and expertise of the AEC
industry to bring this must-have technology to AEC professionals everywhere.”

Bluebeam Software’s flagship product, Revu®, ^ is an award-winning PDF
creation, markup and collaboration solution used by the world’s top
architecture, engineering and construction firms to digitally share and review
project information. Revu enables users to electronically redline 2D and 3D
PDFs with industry-standard markups and measurements, track all comments in an
integrated Markups list, compare drawing revisions, store project files in the
cloud and collaborate with others in real time.

The Panasonic 4K tablet is on display today through January 11^th at CES in
Panasonic booth C9806. Bluebeam Software representatives are also available to
explain how Revu can be used to easily review and redline PDF drawings on the
tablet.
