Panasonic has led large-size high-quality display market globally, introducing the world’s largest 103-inch plasma display to the market in 2006.

With the move towards digitization in the broadcasting and content industries as well as convergence of communications technologies, there are increasingly diversified demands for large-size flat-panel displays. Based on its know-how in producing large-size panels that was cultivated with the 103-inch PDP development, Panasonic has developed the new 85-inch full HD plasma display integrating the latest high picture quality technology.

“Panasonic continues to deliver high-quality displays and the 85 inch Plasma is ideal for companies who are looking for an impressive medium to advertise their business, products or service offerings,” said Mr. Yasuo Yamasaki, General Manager, Panasonic Marketing Middle East.

The 85-inch display, having a screen size equivalent to four 42-inch panels, incorporates Panasonic’s NeoPDP energy-efficient, double luminance technology. With a moving picture resolution of 1,080 lines and a stunning contrast ratio of 40,000:1 (max. 2,000,000:15) – both the world’s highest to date – the panel delivers blur-free, crisp, true-to-life images with deep, rich blacks. With a viewing area of 1,889 mm (W) x 1,062 mm (H), about the same size as commonly-used projection screens, it is big enough to show a person in full size when installed vertically. The display measures only 99 mm in thickness.

The large and thin plasma display not only delivers dynamic images, but is outfitted with many convenient features for professional uses. With LAN (PJLink) terminals, it supports LAN control that enables connection with other PJLink compatible imaging systems as well as remote control of the display and input signal check. The display also features Panasonic’s own Function Slots that let users to add up to three different terminal boards8) such as DVI and Dual Link HD-SDI, according to their needs.

The 85-inch full HD display expands Panasonic’s large-size display line-up. Compared to the 103 inches, it is 30 mm thinner in profile and about 30 percent lighter per square inch and about 40 percent lighter in total weight (Approx. 130 kg) – achieving mobility and installation ease comparable to the 65-inches. The improvement on luminance efficiency made downsizing and high integration of parts possible, resulting in the reductions of thickness and weight.

Panasonic continues to pursue greener products. Panasonic has become the first company to completely eliminate lead from plasma display panels. Its plasma TVs have a long life of 100,000 hours.
