Panasonic has brought some new plasma panels to IFA 2012. 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.
8K, 4K and glasses-free 3D
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.
Panasonicâ€™s 145-inch 8K TV is huge
The TV boasts a resolution of 7680x4320 pixels and has been developed in collaboration with Japanese NHK that has also been involved in the 8K Olympics broadcasting and Sharpsâ€™ 8K TV. Panasonic says that they have created an all-new pixel driving method for the 8K TV to avoid flicker.
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.
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.
