Matsushita Electric Industrial Co, a Japanese electronics conglomerate, has unveiled on Monday a 150-inch plasma television; saying it is the world’s biggest television ever made.
The new plasma TV boasts four times better resolution than the current full high-definition picture quality, 1080p, and offers a screen size of nine 50-inch plasma televisions. It was shown to the public at CES in Las Vegas by Toshihiro Sakamoto, president of Panasonic AVC Networks Co.
The new screen, which measures 12 1/2 feet when measured diagonally, tops the previous record of a 103-inch plasma made by them as well. The 103-inch plasma has sold over 3,000 units over last year alone.
The new screen will be available in 2009 at a price that is yet to be disclosed. The new plasma would be mainly used for billboards.
