Japan Broadcasting Corp. (NHK ) and and Panasonic have
jointly developed a 145-inch plasma display panel (PDP)
supporting the super-high vision (SHV) resolution - 7,680 x 4,320 pixels or 16 times the resolution of HDTV.
The self-luminous direct-view-type SHV display device
features a pixel pitch of 0.411mm, a 60ppi resolution
and opearates at a frequency of 60Hz. Other
specifications such as brightness, contrast ratio, color
gamut and thickness are equivalent to those of existing
PDPs. Panasonic suggests a 1.6m viewing distance for
the display, in order to enjoy realistic viewing.
NHK and Panasonic started the development of the PDP in
April 2007. This time, they made a prototype at
Panasonic's Amagasaki Fifth Plant, which is currently
not being used.
NHK and Panasonic are planning to develop 70/80-inch
models of the display for home use.
NHK and Sharp had also announced
an 85-inch LCD display
in May 2011.
