Japanese paper Yomiuri is reporting that Panasonic will unveil a 150-inch plasma at CES to show the world who has the biggest flatscreen manufacturing capability.
Matsushita Electric Industrial Co. has developed a 150-inch plasma display TV panel--the world's largest, according to sources.
Matsushita, which is best known for its Panasonic brand, will introduce a prototype model of the television at the Consumer Electronics Show to be held next month in the United States. Commercial release is slated for 2009.
The new 150-inch display, which is about two meters by about 3.5 meters, is big enough to display a full-scale adult. Retail price, which is undecided, is expected to greatly exceed the 103-inch model's 6 million yen price tag.
