'World's largest TV' sports super HD resolution

Four times the quality of 1080p, Panasonic claims

3 Big data security analytics techniques

IFA If you’ve got the wall space to spare, then perhaps you’ll be attracted by the world’s largest TV - which also features a resolution four times better than crummy old full HD.

Panasonic's 150in TV: has a 4096 x 2160 resolution

Panasonic unveiled its 150in Viera display at IFA in Berlin. It told Register Hardware that the monster screen sports a 4096 x 2160 resolution.

The company didn't say whether the 3.81m tall telly is based on aplasma or LCD panel - we'd say it's a plasma. Whatever, it delivers “crisp, beautiful images across the entire display”, Panasonic promised, even when displaying multiple picture-in-picture images.

Although pictures fail to do the set justice, its ability to create clear and rich images is exceptional. But we were forced to sit some way back from the screen in order to take in everything happening on the 150in beast.

It’s worth remembering that claims by firms to have created the “world’s largest TV” come and go like clockwork, so Panasonic’s 150in screen is unlikely to retain the title for long.

The set’s due to launch in the UK next spring and although the price hasn’t been unveiled yet, it’s sure to be expensive - very expensive. Just imagine the size of the box it'll come in too...
