Panasonic Introduces New 10 Series Plasma Line at 2007 InfoComm


ANAHEIM, Calif., June 19 -- Panasonic Professional Display Company, a division of Panasonic Corporation of North America, the industry leader in professional/industrial Plasma displays, 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 in. model recently awarded the 2007 Display of the Year Silver Award by the Society for Display Information - to the 37 in. Plasma and the newest addition to the line, the 58 in. 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 in. 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 in. 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 3 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."
