Panasonic launches large 3D displays14 June 2010
Panasonic Professional Visual Displays Europe (PVDE) has unveiled professional-use ultra-large Full HD 3D plasma display panels (PDPs). The displays include the world’s largest 152-inch model, as well as 103- and 85-inch models.
Pre-orders for this 152-inch display will be taken in Europe from this summer on, and shipping will start in very early 2011.
Panasonic has a wealth of experience in large-size 2D professional plasma displays; it launched a 103-inch Full HD model in 2006 and an 85-inch Full HD model in 2009, both of which have been widely praised for meeting the needs of a wide range of professional customers in applications such as digital signage and business presentation monitors.
To develop the new professional models, Panasonic has advanced its unique Full HD 3D technologies, which include an industry-highest native contrast ratio of 5,000,000:1 for overwhelming black reproduction; a high speed driving technology to achieve the PDP’s full moving picture resolution; and a crosstalk reduction technology, a crucial requirement for producing clear and crisp 3D images.
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 colour reproducibility with 30-bit processing in comparison to conventional models.
These advances allow the world’s first ultra-large Full HD 3D plasma display line-up 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.
