Your Future On The Big Screen

January 10, 2008 | Chris Payatagool
1_21_ces08_150_plasma.jpgLAS VEGAS - Bill Gates may be the visionary, but Panasonic trumps Microsoft in execution.

On Monday, Panasonic President of AVC Networks Toshihiro Sakamoto unveiled several new products at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) aimed at making the promise of "living in high definition" more of a reality--certainly more than the promises offered by Microsoft Chairman Gates the previous evening.


As expected, Sakamoto debuted the crowd-pleasing, 150-inch, high-definition plasma television, which now ranks as the world's largest plasma screen. The enormous screen, which was rolled out onstage, features 8.84-million-pixel resolution and is 11 feet by 6.25 feet. Calling the product Life Screen, Sakamoto said that "it gives new meaning to the words 'reality TV.' "

But like Alison in Wonderland, Sakamoto was also ready to scale in a different direction--very, very thin. He next showed off a super-thin, 50-inch plasma TV that is less than 1 inch wide, or 24.77 millimeters, to be exact. It weighs only 22 kilograms and is roughly one-fourth the thickness of older plasmas.
