Panasonic Corporation has already started taking orders for its professional-use ultra-large Full HD 3D plasma display panels (PDPs).

The displays include the world's largest 152-inch model, as well as 103- and 85-inch models. Shipments which started first in the Japanese and American markets were closely followed by other countries soon thereafter.

Panasonic has a wealth of experience in large-size 2D professional plasma displays; it launched a 103-inch Full HD model in 2006 and an 85-inch Full HD model in 2009, both of which have been widely praised for meeting the needs of a wide range of professional customers in applications such as digital signage and business presentation monitors. This popularity allowed Panasonic to achieve No. 1 share in the global professional flat-panel display market in the fiscal year ended March 2010.

Now, the professional Full HD 3D PDPs for which Panasonic will accept orders provide high quality Full HD 3D video on the world’s largest scale for a direct-view display, as well as ultra-high picture quality 2D displays.

To develop the new professional models, Panasonic has advanced its unique technologies employed in its VIERA Full HD 3D plasma televisions that were launched in the consumer market. The technologies include an industry-highest native contrast ratio of 5,000,000:1 for overwhelming black reproduction; a high speed driving technology to achieve the PDP's full moving picture resolution; and a crosstalk reduction technology, a crucial requirement for producing clear and crisp 3D images.

Softlogic, The authorised distributor for Panasonic in Sri Lanka recently jointly launched the 103-Inch Full HD 3D plasma TV to the local market. Other sizes available in the Softlogic Max and Softlogic showrooms are the 65’, 50’, 42’ plasma TVs and 40’ and below sizes in LED/LCD TVs.

The newly-developed ultra high-speed drive technology of the plasma achieves clear and highly detailed 3D video even on the ultra-large panels, while also, the newly developed built-in "professional quality engine" has doubled the color reproducibility with 30-bit processing in comparison to conventional models.


These advances allow the world’s first ultra-large Full HD 3D plasma display lineup to reproduce high quality 3D video sources accurately in a high quality and create an immersive experience that allows the audience to feel as if they were a part of the scene. The 152-inch display can even project life-size images of people. The models have also been equipped with Panasonic’s original function slots, "SLOT2.0," allowing various interfaces such as DVI and HD-SDI, offering expandability to flexibly meet the needs of professional users.

Offering a variety of 3D system solutions that will lead to the creation of new businesses, Panasonic continues to fulfill the needs of professional users such as corporations, stores, amusement facilities, educational institutions, art galleries and museums.
