Panasonic Neo PDP TV Tech unveilied
 
Quote:

Panasonic’s got a new way of making plasma TVs. It’s called Neo PDP and makes the competition look bulky, slow and if we’re honest, a bit dim by comparison. Get all the details after the jump.

Panasonic’s Neo PDP screens are just one inch thick. They also use 50% less power than normal and have contrast ratios of 40,000:1 for deep blacks. By next year, Panasonic says its Neo PDP TVs will be just 8.8mm thick, and with a contrast ratio of infinity:1, rivalling OLED for deep blacks and rich colours.

Behind it all is Panasonic’s new plasma screen technology, with larger cells to emit more light at lower power. That makes the screen much brighter than normal. In fact, they’re 50% brighter than usual, using the same amount of power.

To help with black levels, Panasonic says it has also reduced the residual light in each cell of the screen, and it shows. The models we saw were spectacular.

The Neo PDP screens also refresh at an astounding 600Hz, creating 12 subframes for every frame of video they take in. The effect is massively smoothed video that looks slicker than a buttered snake.

Still not satisfied? All but the most basic G10 models also pack ethernet ports, Panasonic’s new Viera Cast on-demand service, media streaming from other DLNA-ready devices, such as networked hard drives and PCs and even DivX support.

The Neo PDP V10 model is also THX certified for pictures that are cinema-standard, with Lucas Film-approved colour matching, while the flagship Panasonic Neo PDP Z1 squeezes in everything, but measures just 1 inch thick and adds wireless HD streaming, sending uncompressed full HD 1080p direct to the screen without cables.

To put it mildly, we’re stunned. With Pioneer discontinuing the Kuro, we might have just found a new favourite plasma TV.

Saw this on a video at AVforums. How much I wonder?

Looks like an awesome display. Too bad I just purchased a Panasonic TH58PZ700U for the living room 14 months ago. No way the wife is going to let me upgrade it so soon.
Maybe this would look nice in the den....where's my stimulous check?

Move the old one to the den and get the new one and tell her she can leave the blinds open in the living room with the new one. :D

BTW, there is no stimulus check slated with the latest stimulus bill that passed. It is keep try to reduce layoffs and foreclosures for the most part this time around.

Good luck with the WAF. :lol:

I just wish they make them in 32in models too. It will be perfect for my bedroom.
