Panasonic unveils new line of plasma HDTVs

  • Anaheim (CA) - Still resting on its laurels with the 103-inch display it debuted at last year's CES, Panasonic has introduced a new line of plasma HDTV sets.

    Announced at this week's professional A/V trade show InfoComm, Panasonic unveiled three new TVs with 1080p HD resolution.

    The TH-50PF9UK, TH-65PF9UK, and TH-103PF9UK join Panasonic's lineup of top-notch high definition TVs.

    The three are flagship entrants into Panasonic's new division, Panasonic Professional Display Company.  At such large sizes, ranging from 50" to 103", Panasonic says their main target is the professional market.

    Panasonic, one of few manufacturers still pushing plasma TVs exclusively, does not use mercury or lead in its displays and says it has improved on flaws that have traditionally plagues the format, like screen burn-in issues.

    The new TVs will be available soon and retail from between $5,000 and $50,000.
