The New York-based Panasonic Communications & Systems Co division of Matsushita Electric Industrial Co has six new optical data storage devices, a colour scanner and a line of multimedia personal computer speakers, as well as three new optical disk drives designed to store and retrieve large amounts of data. They are two new multifunction rewritable drives, the LF-7300A and the LF-7304, and one write-once drive, the LF-5300A. Panasonic is also launching three new jukeboxes, the LF-J7324A, LF-J7328A and LF-J7350A, optical disk autochangers that serve as digital file cabinets for accessing multiple optical disk drives that can be used with both rewritable and write-once optical drive applications. The speakers, the EAB710P and EAB401P, offer magnetic shielding and Panasonic’s Super Bass Exciter structure. The desktop scanner, the FX-RS308C, is used to input colour photography and other existing colour images, as well as monochrome documents. The scanner comes bundled with editing software that enables the user to manipulate the image’s appearance or enhance its clarity. The optical drives suggested prices are from $3,700 to $4,000, the jukebox optical disk autochanger line from $17,000 to $35,000; the multimedia personal computer speakers between $145 and $250 and the colour desktop scanner for $1,400. General availability is planned for the first quarter next year.
