Panasonic’s large displays have received global acclaim in a wide range of commercial and consumer applications from business and public signage, education, broadcasting stations to home theater. With the move towards digitization in the broadcasting and content industries as well as convergence of communications technologies, there are increasingly diversified demands for large-size flat-panel displays. Based on its know-how in producing large-size panels that was cultivated with the 103-inch PDP development, Panasonic has developed the new 85-inch full HD plasma display integrating the latest high picture quality technology.
The 85-inch display, having a screen size equivalent to four 42-inch panels, incorporates Panasonic’s NeoPDP energy-efficient, double luminance technology2). With a moving picture resolution of 1,080 lines3) and a stunning contrast ratio of 40,000:14) (max. 2,000,000:15)) – both the world’s highest to date6) – the panel delivers blur-free, crisp, true-to-life images with deep, rich blacks.
