LAS VEGAS -- April 10, 2013

Panasonic, a leading provider of integrated security and surveillance
solutions, today announced it will be showcasing its latest security
technologies here at the International Security Conference & Exposition (ISC
West), April 10-12 ^ in Las Vegas (booth # 14035). As part of the industry’s
most comprehensive portfolio of security solutions for businesses, schools,
healthcare facilities, government and other organizations, Panasonic will
demonstrate a range of new surveillance products and several integrated
solutions designed to improve efficiency and drive long-term value.

Highlighting Panasonic's dominance as an engineering and manufacturing
powerhouse, the booth will feature demonstrations of both new products ready
to hit the market, and cutting-edge technology under development for release
later this year. These include:

  *New Full HD Surveillance Products: A wide range of new surveillance
    products will be on display at the Panasonic booth, demonstrating its
    depth and breadth of offerings for a variety of markets and settings.
    These include an array of indoor/outdoor pan-tilt-zoom, 360° panoramic and
    compact dome cameras delivering full HD 1080p images, the WJ-GXE100 single
    channel H.264 encoder that converts any analog signal to an IP signal
    (available now); day/night indoor/outdoor analog surveillance cameras with
    Infrared LED (available in July); and a new hydrophilic “rain-resistant”
    dome coating for improved visibility during rainy conditions (available as
    a standard feature this month on three top-selling models with additional
    expansion in July).
  *Face Search: Panasonic will demonstrate technology available later this
    year that allows security personnel to conduct high-speed searches of
    recorded video for a specific face based on a single reference face. The
    ability to search video by face will enable security staff to more quickly
    find previous recordings of suspects, greatly improving investigation
    efficiency for example, to pull up past instances of a suspected
    shoplifter entering a store. The system can also be programmed to
    “recognize” when a reference face passes a live camera, for example,
    allowing a business to unlock a door when a known employee passes a
    surveillance camera, or to alert security staff when a prohibited person
    attempts to enter a facility. This technology will be released later this
    year as a software add-on for Panasonic’s ASM200 and ASM970 Video
    Management platforms.
  *Environmental Noise Correction: Panasonic will be demonstrating advanced
    digital signal processing functionality that reduces the appearance of
    snow in video images in real-time. Expanding on the existing capabilities
    of Panasonic’s 5 Series cameras to filter out fog and sand noise from
    video images, this server-based technology greatly improves picture
    clarity and contrast in snowy conditions. It will be available later this
    year as a software add-on for Panasonic’s ASM200 and ASM970 Video
    Management platforms. Demonstration video of this technology can be viewed
    in the i-PRO Technology section of the booth.

Panasonic's focus on providing solutions for specific market needs is being
demonstrated in several innovative system configurations at ISC West.
Solutions to be showcased include:

  *Mobile Security Control Room Solution: Designed to enable remote viewing
    and control of Panasonic IP-based i-PRO surveillance cameras and recorders
    using Panasonic Toughpad™ tablets. The Mobile Security Control Room
    solutions combine the rugged mobility of Toughpad tablets with Panasonic’s
    advanced line of surveillance technology, providing a truly mobile
    platform for comprehensive monitoring and control. Solution options
    include:

       *Toughpad FZ-G1 - WV-ASM200 i-PRO Management Software Solution:
         Offering all the capabilities of a fixed-location security command
         center in a rugged 2.43 lb. tablet, this enterprise-grade solution
         provides a powerful, full-featured mobile surveillance management
         platform. Utilizing Panasonic’s WV-ASM200 video management software,
         users can control and view live feeds from up to 256 directly
         connected network cameras, and access recordings from up to 100
         recorders, directly from their Toughpad tablets. The Toughpad FZ-G1
         is a fully-rugged, 10-inch tablet featuring the Windows® operating
         system and a 3^rd Generation Intel® Core™ i5-3437U vPro™ 1.9GHz
         processor with Intel Turbo Boost Technology.
       *Toughpad FZ-A1 - WJ-NV200 i-PRO SmartHD Network Disk Recorder
         Solution: Designed for remote viewing and full control of up to 16
         network cameras, this solution connects wirelessly to Panasonic’s
         WJ-NV200 Network Video Recorder offering an easy-to-use, economical
         method for mobile surveillance management. The fully-rugged, 10-inch
         Toughpad FZ-A1 can be equipped with Panasonic’s special Android
         Remote Control app, available in June, to control camera recording
         and viewing functions of the WJ-NV200 Network Video Recorder which
         enables full remote pan/tilt/zoom camera control and live viewing.
         The app also allows users to remotely search recordings by date and
         time for playback, and can register and access up to 50 recorders.
         The Toughpad FZ-A1 runs on a Marvell® ARMADA PXA2128 1.2GHz Dual-Core
         Processor with an embedded hardware security processor, making it
         FIPS140-2-(Level 2) compliant for U.S. government use.

  *Retail/POS: In addition to traditional uses such as loss prevention and
    compliance monitoring, Panasonic’s video surveillance technologies can
    drive additional return on investment for retail as part of an integrated
    technology solution. At the show, Panasonic will exhibit an integration of
    its surveillance technology with its point-of-sale products to identify
    targeted marketing opportunities, measure consumer shopping patterns and
    improve overall customer experience.

At the show, Panasonic also will feature collaborative solutions developed
through its Panasonic Solution Developer Network (PSDN) program, which works
closely with other leading providers and manufacturers of security and video
surveillance solutions to promote compatibility and interoperability. The
network extends and complements Panasonic’s offerings, delivering enhanced
functionality and additional value to customer and resellers with exciting,
new integrated multi-vendor solutions. PSDN exhibits will include a
demonstration of the interoperability of Panasonic’s line of IP Cameras,
Recorders and Video Management Software utilizing the ONVIF standard protocol
with thermal imaging video surveillance cameras developed by FLIR Systems.
PSDN also is working with key video management software and application
providers to integrate Panasonic’s new 360° panoramic surveillance cameras,
and improved integration of Panasonic video systems and recorders with access
control, PSIM, and video analytics solutions.

“Panasonic’s ISC West exhibit showcases our commitment to providing our
customers in a wide variety of industries and markets with the performance,
quality and reliability they depend on to keep their facilities protected and
secure,” said Greg Peratt, Panasonic video solutions integration team senior
director. “As a single-source provider, we design and engineer all the
products that comprise our comprehensive security solutions portfolio to
improve the overall user experience and provide long-term value.”
