These LED bulbs are characterized by a nostalgic, warm glow. This video features the lighting ceremony and the new product line-up launch, at which Panasonic unveiled 55 new LED Clear Light Bulbs including the 60W.

Panasonic introduced an extensive LED line-up to the European market

The demand for LED light bulbs is on the rise in Europe with the ban of incandescent light bulbs on the horizon, in 2016. The LED Clear Light Bulb, which emits a warm glow from the center of the glass bulb, was initially developed with the European audience in mind. Overcoming various obstacles by developing innovative technology such as the "Center Mount Technology," which enabled Panasonic to place the LED substrate in the center of the bulb, technology that can cast a light with the same color and vertical uniformity, and the heat radiation technology, Panasonic launched the LED Clear Light Bulb in Europe in 2011. At the new product line-up launch, Panasonic introduced 55 new LEDs including the 60W LED Clear Light Bulb.
