    Yep, 152 inch and super duper HD!!!


    By Charles Passy
    The pitch

    If that 55-inch TV set you bought last year suddenly doesn’t measure up to
    your game-day fantasies, consider this Super Bowl-size alternative: A 152-inch
    one, yours for a cool half-million. That’s the price tag on Panasonic’s model
    TH-152UX1, billed as the “world’s largest, 4K2K plasma display” (we’ll get to
    that 4K2K part in a minute). The set is indeed a massive one — equivalent to
    nine 50-inch screens and weighing in at a whopping 1,272 pounds. (For one
    installation at a restaurant, a forklift was used to put the TV in place.) But
    Panasonic says it’s not just about size: It’s also about picture quality — the
    4K2K refers to the resolution — meaning 4,096 by 2,160 pixels. In other words,
    it can deliver four times the resolution of a standard high-definition set, says
    Rick Albert, a Panasonic vice president. Albert adds that the resolution is key
    for commercial purposes, such as using the set to display graphics or charts at
    a large gathering — indeed, the set’s target market is the business crowd, not
    the high-end homeowner.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    I don't see why it shouldn't, but do you really want to read DU posts at that size?

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
