Panasonic doesn't seem to think that as some predict , plasma is a dying technology . They've just opened their huge new plasma panel factory -producing 100 inch plus panels down to 42 inch displays and 3 D capable panels as well . Good news for plasma fans !

Of course it's not a dying technology. It's just misleading advertisements, myths and ignorance that are thriving.

And what myth is that? Are people saying Plasma TV's are going to be obsolete very soon? :huh

Yeah. a couple of people have posted online articles asking whether plasmas will go away soon.

Should be interesting to see Panasonic pit it's 50" PDP 3DTV against other CEM's who will use LCD displays for their 3DTVs.

If you thought differences could be seen with PDP versus LCD with HD content - the bar is raised quite a few notches when it comes to 3DTV.

So are you thinking plasma will outscore LCD on an entirely new level with 3D? Or are you thinking plasma will have shortcomings with 3D compared to LCD?

I guess only time will tell.

Right now it appears Samsung is planning a big 3D launch with PDP in the Spring.
Both Samsung and Mits have been working with DLP versions (possibly to carry over to FP?)

Panasonic is working on 103" plasmas with 3D capability.
From what I've read so far, it appears only Philips & LG are seriously working on 3D LCD displays.

There you go. :thumbsup:

What was important before is going to be critical for 3D. Black level and response time become much more important. Errors will be much easier to spot with 3D. Issues like ghosting and cross talk have never been an issue for 2D HD. But they will for 3D HD.
