Panasonic Works with Bluebeam Software to Preview Cutting-Edge Tablet Application for Architects at CES 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 11th 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.
