IFA 2011 Trade Show: 70-inch HDTV Prototype. A Windows 7 PC. A Whiteboard

A German company Hannspree at the IFA 2011 trade show in Berlin, showed off the Lounge TV 70. The product shown at Hannspree’s booth was a massive 70 inch 1080p HDTV that also had a PC running inside it with Microsoft’s Windows 7 operating system. Also, it was running some kind of business application that allowed people to “draw” images on the huge TV screen. It basically turned this TV-PC combo into a whiteboard product as well.

“Seeing someone drawing on an HDTV — on the actual screen with an actual electronic pen — stopped a lot of IFA show-goers by German LCD maker Hannspree’s booth. We were all gawking at woman’s face being sketched on the Lounge TV 70, a 70-inch 1920-by-1080-pixel HDTV.

Except the artist isn’t technically drawing on the “TV,” because in addition to it being a regular, old HDTV, the Lounge TV 70 also a full-blown Windows 7 Pro Edition PC. She’s using one of the business apps that’s part of whatever Hannspree spruced up the OS with,” reports Dvice.com.

The report did not have any information on the hardware specifications of the PC parts inside.

Neither, there’s any word on pricing for the Lounge TV 70 nor any indication of a release date.

It’s possible that this TV is being made just for the German market.
