Panasonic announced today, at the opening of the 2007 CEDIA convention, that it has expanded its line of 1080p High Definition Plasma TVs, to include two new, more affordable models- the TH-42PZ77 and the TH-50PZ77.
The TH-42PZ77 and TH-50PZ77 feature more than two million pixels and have a resolution of 1920 x 1080, with a contrast ratio of 10,000:1. The two latest additions to Panasonic's 1080p Plasma line also feature an anti-glare screen coating and a jack pack that includes two HDMI inputs, three S-video inputs, three composite video inputs and two component video inputs. The PZ77 series also incorporates an automatic pixel wobbling function - as does the entire 2007 Plasma line - for anti-image retention. The PZ77 series also features EZ-Sync, a technology that links Panasonic consumer home entertainment and video products to allow seamless control of the entire system using only one remote and the unique SD Memory card slot.
Scheduled to ship this month, the new 42-inch and 50-inch class Plasmas have SRPs of $1799.95 and $2799.95 respectively.
