Panasonic unveils 85-inch Full HD plasma panel

18 Jun 2009 | Rasmus Larsen |

Panasonic has announced the development of an 85-inch full high-definition (HD) plasma display designed for professional users. The new display, to be showcased at InfoComm 09 from June 17 to 19 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, will become available through business channels worldwide starting from Japan and the US this fall.

Panasonic has led large-size high-quality display market globally, introducing the world's largest 103-inch plasma display to the market in 2006. 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.

The 85-inch display, having a screen size equivalent to four 42-inch panels, incorporates Panasonic's NeoPDP energy-efficient, double luminance technology. With a moving picture resolution of 1,080 lines and a contrast ratio of 40,000:1 (max. 2,000,000:1) the panel delivers images with deep, rich blacks. With a viewing area of 1,889 mm (W) x 1,062 mm (H), about the same size as commonly-used projection screens, it is big enough to show a person in full size when installed vertically. The display measures only 99 mm in thickness.

The 85-inch full HD display expands Panasonic's large-size display line-up. Compared to the 103 inches, it is 30 mm thinner in profile and about 30 percent lighter per square inch and about 40 percent lighter in total weight (Approx. 130 kg) - achieving mobility and installation ease comparable to the 65-inches. The improvement on luminance efficiency made downsizing and high integration of parts possible, resulting in the reductions of thickness and weight.

The panel has a long life of 100,000 hours. It’ll ship Fall 2009.

Bang & Olufsen could be a potential partner as they have already manufactured a 103” B&O plasma-TV with the 103-inch Panasonic panel.
