Panasonic readies monster 3D monitor for sale

152in beast sports 4096 x 2160 resolution

Build a business case: developing custom apps

Fancy a 152in, 4K-by-2K 3D plasma TV, anyone? Interested? Then call Panasonic, which will begin taking orders for the beast in July - six months after a prototype panel was demo'd at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES).

Be warned: you'll need a capacious wallet. Panasonic didn't say what it expects to charge for the monster monitor, but since the screen is aimed at "professional use" applications - casinos, corporate lobbies, shops, that kind of thing - don't expect it to be cheap.

In addition to that 4096 x 2160 resolution, the 152in PDP has a 5,000,000:1 contrast ratio, Panasonic boasted. The screen does 24p playback too.

The manufacturer will also offer 1920 x 1080 panels at 85in and 103in.

All three will initially be made available to well-heeled buyers in the US and Japan, but Panasonic said they will be offered to purchasers in other countries in due course. ®
