Panasonic 103-inch plasma

Panasonic has put into production the TH-103PF9, reputedly the largest plasma TV set in the world, TrustedReviews says. Measuring in at 103 inches, the set supports native 1080p resolution with 16-bit image processing, which is four times as powerful as 14-bit processing. This gives the set up to 4,096 color gradation steps and a contrast ratio of 5,000:1. Availability will be extremely limited for the forseeable future, however. Panasonic is aiming the display primarily at businesses such as airports and trade shows, and the few home units on sale will be prohibitively expensive. The TH-103PF9 is a European model that will retail for 30,000-60,000; Panasonic says that an American model, the TH-103PZ600U (pictured), will be available in December for $70,000.
