Panasonic Rolls 103-Inch 3D Plasma TV
Panasonic, the world’s largest maker of plasma TVs, has begun accepting orders in Japan for a 103-inch 3D plasma high-definition television.
The price tag for the TH-P103MT2 is 8.5 million yen, a little over $101,000 U.S. The TV features a 1,920 x 1,080 resolution and comes with a pair of active shutter 3D glasses. It claims a contrast ratio of 5,000,000:1, and its dimensions are 241.2cm x 141.9cm x 14.1cm. The set weighs 440 pounds, which increases to 707 pounds when a stand is added, Panasonic said.
Not surprisingly, the set uses a whopping amount of electricity: 1,350 watts, without speakers. Panasonic is marketing the unit for commercial use rather than to consumers, according to CNET news. It comes with “high-speed driving technology” for superior high-definition viewing, Panasonic said, as well as a new engine that enhances colors.
