Panasonic Introduces New Plasma Line at 2007 InfoComm

Panasonic
Professional Display Company, a division of Panasonic Corporation of

North America, introduced its 2007 line of Plasmas today
at InfoComm, the largest trade show of the professional audio visual industry.

From the
world’s largest Plasma display, the critically acclaimed 103-inch model
-recently awarded the 2007 Display of the Year Silver Award by the Society for
Display Information – to the 37-inch Plasma and the newest addition to the
line, the 58-inch Plasma, Panasonic boasts a deep, expansive line-up with a
size and solution for every application. All of the new 10 series are high
definition, with three models – TH-50PF9UK, TH-65PF9UK and the TH-103PF9UK –
featuring superb 1080p image quality. The high definition line is completed by
four displays that incorporate a resolution of 1366 x 768.

According
to Andrew Nelkin, president of the newly formed Panasonic Professional Display
Company, “We created PPDC to put an even greater emphasis on the
professional side of the flat panel business, led by our star, the 103- inch HD
Plasma. Commercial flat panels are a strategically important part of our
business and we intend to maintain and grow our leadership in both the
professional and consumer markets.”

Panasonic’s
professional Plasma display panels have a wide range of applications. Due to
Plasma’s deep blacks, high contrast, beautiful color reproduction and high
definition resolution, the 103-inch is perfectly suited for use in conferences
and presentations with large audiences, board rooms, theater lobbies, trade
shows, shopping malls, airports, hotels, sports stadiums and in TV studios. For
example, the 103-inch is currently utilized on the set of CBS’ “Early
Show” and NBC’s “Football Night in

America.” In addition, 103’s
have been installed in the newly renovated Planet Hollywood in

Las
Vegas, the Borgata, Miami Dolphins Stadium, Pechanga Resort and
Casino and the Hyatt in

Chicago.

Among the
system solutions offered by the 2007 line is the ability to utilize a wireless
presentation board. The user can mount a wireless presentation board to a
conference display unit that allows wireless connection of up to eight displays
and four PCs. Panasonic’s Plasmas also feature the industry’s best
expandability. In addition to the fixed input interface, the displays have
three interchangeable slots that let the user add different combinations of
optional terminal boards. “This gives our customer the flexibility to add
digital or analog capabilities, as necessary and to customize the system for
their specific needs, another example of Panasonic’s commitment to providing the
best solution to our end user,” added Nelkin.

“Our
new lineup is indicative of Panasonic’s commitment to providing the broadest
range of displays that deliver the crispest and clearest pictures available to
meet the widest range of professional applications. The variety of applications
is only limited by one’s imagination,” said Nelkin. “With brilliant
images, deep colors and cutting edge technology that doesn’t limit the line of
sight, our Plasmas are perfect for digital signage and any location-application
that calls for gorgeous images. Another advantage Panasonic has is that our
Plasma panels are mercury and lead free.”
