Beyond Smart TV
The hallmark of the Life+Screen AS650 line-up is the "Beyond Smart" concept
that provides an easy-to-use interface with a variety of functions. Building
on the success of Panasonic's "My Home Screen" personalization features
introduced last year, Panasonic Life+ Screens completely overhaul the user
interface and implement dramatic enhancements regarding learning the content
preferences of individual users, breaking different content out of its silos,
and making navigation far easier and more intuitive.

    gateway allowing users to personalize their screen with their favorite
    apps and content and access it all quickly and easily.
  oThe new my Stream feature enables seamless, automatic content
    recommendation. Panasonic Life+ Screens learn user preferences and
    automatically recommend content that is targeted to each person.* By
    using the my Button on the Touch Pad Remote, the TV conveniently learns
    the user's content preferences.
  oVoice Assistant lets the user easily search for their favorite content in
    a natural, conversational way.
  omy Home Cloud makes it possible to download a wide variety of content and
    apps, and to gain access to places for purchasing accessories via
    Panasonic's proprietary Cloud Technology.
  oAccess to a wide range of Internet Apps – video-on-demand content and
    applications covering everything from news and fitness, social networking,
    music and online shopping and gaming.*
  oA new Remote Sharing feature also makes it possible to share video memos,
    messages, and other information from my Home Screen through smartphone
    devices while away from home.
