Panasonic Launches Blog To Discuss AG-HVX200 And HD
Panasonic has announced the launch of a blog to “inform and educate video professionals” on the new AG-HVX200 HD/SD DVCPRO P2 camcorder and on high definition technology topics in general.
The blog, written by Tosh Bilowski , provides Panasonic “a forum to express its views and share its opinions on new technologies, products, features, and activities, as well as answer questions in a meaningful way.”
‘€œThis web log will serve as a centralized source for accurate information on the AG-HVX200, DVCPRO HD, P2, and on a host of technology subjects, and Tosh allows us to put a human face and personality to it,’€? said Jim Wickizer, National Manager, Marketing Services, Panasonic Broadcast. ‘€œIn the past, this type of information has typically been presented in a far-less-interesting manner. The on-line journal’€™s goal is to be helpful and relevant to video professionals and provide them with a useful reference.’€?
Thanks for letting us know about the Panasonic blog. However, do you know whether “Tosh Bilowski” exists? I’m thinking it’s very likely that this is a “character blog,” where authorship is attributed to a fictional character.
I just explained why I’m suspicious about this blog on Contentious:
It’s possible that Tosh Bilowski exists, of course, but what I’ve found looks very weird. I’d love to hear more from others on this. And I’ve also posted a query to “Tosh” as a comment to this DefPerception posting (http://snipurl.com/j86w), where he discussed his background in a colorful but non-verifiable way
Got any more info?

Just to update you, “Tosh Bilowski” is definitely a fictional character. The video tech enthusiast community has a mixed but mostly negative reaction to this blog. I’m covering that on: http://contentious.com.
