New Panasonic Plasmas

Panasonic introduced the 9 Series plasmas at InfoComm. Performance improvements incude higher video capabilities, greater flexibility and a thin, 15-percent lighter design. The new series includes three high definition panels 50” TH-50PH9UK, 42” TH-42PH9UK, and 37” TH-37PH9UK and the standard definition 42” TH-42PS9UK.

The 9-Series uses 16-bit processing, and is specified at 10,000:1 contrast level.

One really nice design feature is that they are customizable in terms of inputs so you just order what you need rather than get a bunch of inputs you don’t use. The 50” and 42” 9-Series panels offer three multi-function input slots concealed at the back so users can add different combinations of optional terminal boards. The 37” model comes with two interchangeable slots.

The 9-Series professional plasma displays will be available July 2006. MSRPs range from $2,595 to $3,999.
