[CES 2008] Biggest TV Bragging Rights Go To Panasonic (Holy Cow)

By Evan Ackerman

There had to be a winner in the giant TV contest this year, and there most certainly was (nobody else even came close):

Panasonic 150 Plasma

This monster plasma TV from Panasonic is 150 inches diagonal. That’s twelve and a half feet. Totally snubbing HD, its resolution is 2160 x 4096 (that’s 4x the resolution of HDTV). It requires 220 volts to operate (that’s twice what comes out of your sockets), and weighs I don’t even want to know how much. The picture below shows just how big it is; the pathetic little TV on the left is Panasonic’s 103″ model:

Size Comparison

Want one? Rumor has it that you’ll be looking at something in the low six figs.

  1. Those ain’t cows, those are pandas. 🙂

    For the record (and for the rest of us geeks): According to the blueprints/technical manuals, the view screen of the original Enterprise is 6 by 3.5 feet (1.8 by 1.1 metres), diagonal 83 inches; that of the 1701-D is 4.8 by 2.5 metres (15.7 by 8.2 feet), diagonal 213 inches.
