Panasonic 85-inch plasma

At the Infocomm show in Florida on Wednesday, Panasonic showed off an 85-inch, 1080p plasma display based on the company's NeoPDP technology. Meant for use in business presentations and as an electronic billboard, the display lacks a TV tuner of any kind. The display is four times larger than a typical 42-inch HDTV. The static contrast ratio is rated at 40,000:1, while the dynamic ratio jumps to an extremely high 2,000,000:1.

Panasonic borrowed technology from its 103-inch HDTV that was released in 2006. The 85-inch panel is 3.9 inches thick and weighs 287lbs. It is about 40 percent lighter than the 103-inch plasma HDTV, but its per-inch weight is also 30 percent lower.

Connections include Ethernet terminals for network control, and there is DVI for input as well as dual-link HD-SDI for professional video system links.

The company is rumored to be developing a 150-inch plasma TV as well. Pricing for the 85-inch display has not been announced, but a US release is expected to come this fall. The 103-inch HDTV costs the equivalent of about $70,000. [via Impress]
