Panasonic launches worlds first largest Full HD 3D plasma displays
Panasonic will start taking orders for its professional-use ultra-large Full HD 3D plasma display panels (PDPs) on July 1, 2010. The displays include the world’s largest 152-inch model, as well as 103- and 85-inch models. The new professional Full HD 3D PDPs provide high quality Full HD 3D video on the world’s largest scale for a direct-view display, as well as ultra-high picture quality 2D displays. The newly-developed ultra high-speed drive technology achieves clear and highly detailed 3D video even on the ultra-large panels; while also, the newly developed built-in “professional quality engine” has doubled the color reproducibility with 30-bit processing in comparison to conventional models. These advances allow the world’s first*1 ultra-large Full HD 3D plasma display lineup to reproduce high quality 3D video sources accurately in a high quality and create an immersive experience that allows the audience to feel as if they were a part of the scene.
The 152-inch display can even project life-size images of people. The models have also been equipped with Panasonic’s original function slots, “SLOT2.0,” allowing various interfaces such as DVI and HD-SDI, offering expandability to flexibly meet the needs of professional users. Shipments will start first in the Japanese and American markets in autumn this year*3 followed by other countries soon thereafter. The company will also put these new models on display at InfoComm 2010 in Las Vegas, Nevada, from June 9.
