Vidikron 65-inch Plasma

Home theater firm Runco this morning stepped up its efforts in the TV realm by releasing the Vidikron VP-6500VHD. One of the largest plasmas available, the 65-inch screen is the first to ever receive a THX certification for its quality, the company says. The panel is the American brand's first 1080p set but aims at image quality better than most of its rivals. A 16-bit video processor creates a subtler picture without any of the aliasing or banding artifacts seen on earlier displays; an equally special breakout box included with the system, known as the Imagix, provides its own video processing, dual HDMI ports, and RS-232 connections for linking the set with home automation equipment.

As the company's headlining model, the VP-6500VHD sells for $20,000 with the choice of either a black or silver brushed-metal frames. A specialty version known as the VP-6500VHDa is also available for those who live at higher elevations -- as high as 9,000 feet, Vidikron says. [via Engadget]
