Panasonic has brought some new plasma panels to <a href=ifa2012.php><b>IFA 2012</b></a>. First, a 145-inch plasma TV with 8K resolution. Second, a 103-inch glasses-free 3D TV. We go â€śeyes-onâ€ť in a later article.<br /><br /><h3>8K, 4K and glasses-free 3D</h3>Panasonic demonstrates that the plasma technology still has potential, and has implemented 8K resolution in a gigantic 145-inch plasma panel. For a TV that large, 8K resolution should start to make sense.<br /><br /><p align=center><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/panasonic1458k.jpg" alt="Panasonic 145-inch 8K TV"><br><i>Panasonicâ€™s 145-inch 8K TV is huge</i></p><br />The TV boasts a resolution of 7680x4320 pixels and has been developed in collaboration with Japanese NHK that has also been involved in the <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1343898809><b>8K Olympics broadcasting</b></a> and <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1315414379><b>Sharpsâ€™ 8K TV</b></a>. Panasonic says that they have created an all-new pixel driving method for the 8K TV to avoid flicker.<br /><br />Panasonic has also brought an all-new 103-inch glasses-free 3D TV, which easily beats <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1315310380><b>Toshibaâ€™s glasses-free 3D TV</b></a>.<br /><br />Lastly, Panasonic exhibits a 20-inch LCD panel with 4K resolution. Need we remind you that our big, beautiful 40-55 inch LCD-TVs still come with Full HD resolution – four times lower than 4K.<br /><br />All of the panels are show-off events right now. Panasonic has no plans to start mass production right now. FlatpanelsHD will feature a hands-on article with the new display panels later to tell you more about how we experience the â€śfuture of display technologyâ€ť.
