Panasonic just unleashed the world’s largest full-HD 3D plasma display TV at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The 152 inch, 8.84 million pixel screen is part of Panasonic’s Plasma Display Panel line, utilizing a new process called super-efficient quadruple luminance efficiency technology. This 4K2K high tech panel can achieve the same brightness as a conventional full-HD panel in about one-quarter the amount of time, allowing it to keep up with rapidly-moving 3D imagery.
Equivalent to nine 50 inch screens, the 4K2K also incorporates crosstalk reduction technology, which minimizes overlap between what is seen by the viewers’ left and right eyes. The PDP reduces double images by displaying one full frame per eye at a time. This is ideal for rapid 3D displays because the set can refresh pictures a frame at a time instead of a line at a time. 3D TVs are expected to take off in 2010; manufacturers Sony, LG, and Panasonic are all showcasing their latest innovations, including sets with built in Internet telephone service Skype.
