Panasonic Still Pushing Plasma, Adds 3D Capability

Like the Boston Celtics (put a sock in it, Lakers fans), Plasma technology refuses to whither away quietly, no matter what fancy new technologies (like LED-backlit displays) try to takes its place. Don't believe it? Try telling that to Panasonic, which has just announced a pair of new large screen 3D Plasma displays, the 3D Viera TH-P46VT2 (46-inch) and 3D Vieria TH-P42VT2 (42-inch).

Other than the size, the specs appear identical, at least from what we can translate from Panasonic Japan's press release. Both sets require that you don a pair of active shutter system 3D glasses, which is pretty much a requirement for all large screen 3D sets now and in the immediate future.



Panasonic rates the displays with a 5,000,000:1 contrast ratio and both offer DLNA support, Skype compatibility, HDMI connectors, SD card slot, video-on-demand support, and a bunch of other goodies.

Three Optoma EH1020's+ eyefinity all with 3Dcapabilities= 900inches of 3D HD content projected onto your walls! Just one at 300" will cost the same or lees than most of these new 3D TVs, but they dont want you to know that!

I've heard that Plasma TV's use a whole lot more power than LCD screens do. Good enough reason not to get one.
