Anoto's unique dot pattern is ideal for digital writing on tablets and screens because of its accuracy, flexibility and almost unlimited application potential. The technology can turn virtually any surface, including large formats, into a "live digital surface" in which the dot pattern is read by a digital pen and converted into computer-usable data.

Panasonic will be on location at the 2013 International CES, the world's largest consumer technology event, January 8-11, 2013, in Las Vegas. This year's show features a keynote speech by Mr. Kazuhiro Tsuga, president of Panasonic and showcases the company's newest technologies including the "4K tablet" being demonstrated live at the show with the Anoto digital pen.
