The Panasonic is 103 inches, and has a price tag of about $63K. The giant 103 inch Plasma Display Panel by Panasonic, which debuted in the CES 2006 in Las Vegas, has 1080p HDTV resolution and can deliver more than two million pixels (1,920 x 1,080) of performance. In flat panel displays, plasma has technical advantages over other technologies, including LCD, when it comes to making larger size panels. Nevertheless, there are numerous technical challenges in making plasma panels that are larger than 100 inches measured diagonally while maintaining stable discharge and high picture quality across the entire surface of the panel.
The Panasonic monster set barely edges out the 102-inch Samsung. Samsung is all about being the biggest kid on the block so it likely it won’t take long for the Korean manufacturer to gain back the lead.
