[Hands-On] Panasonic’s and NHK 145-inch Ultra High Definition plasma display

[Hands-On] Panasonic's and NHK 145-inch Ultra High Definition plasma display

NHK & Panasonic has announced a 145-inch Ultra High Definition plasma display, with 16 times the resolution of a regular Full HD display. This follows the 85-inch LCD display announced by NHK last year.

This prototype was co-developed with Panasonic. It has almost 34 million 0.417 mm square pixels, 7,860 horizontally and 4,320 vertically, and a frame rate of 60 fps.

This display uses a new drive system to stabilize the picture throughout the panel, by scanning several pixels simultaneously in the vertical direction. Even in a panel with about 4,000 scan lines, this achieves a stable picture without flickering.

“Even when viewed from 1.6 m away, this Ultra High Definition display makes you feel as if you’re looking at a real scene. It doesn’t use 3D technology, but the picture is so realistic, you feel truly immersed in the scene.”

This is the world’s first Ultra High Definition plasma display. As the pixels of a plasma display are self-emitting and the display therefore doesn’t require a backlight, it has superior viewing angles, responsiveness and color reproduction.

“One major feature of this 145-inch Ultra High Definition display is that it gives a very even image at such a high resolution. Another big feature is, because it’s Ultra High Definition, it efficiently shows 8K x 4K pictures, which have a huge pixel count.”

“At present, we think this system will be used in commercial settings first, such as theaters, rather than in the home.”

This new plasma display will be on show to the public from May 24-27, at NHK’s Science & Technology Research Laboratories in Tokyo.

    And my cable TV will still freeze and pixelate, only now it’ll be at 145 inches!  ;)

    I can’t wait till these drop down to average consumer friendly prices because I’m tired of everyone pushing 3D. I’d take an Ultra Hi-Def TV over a 3D one any day.
