Panasonic Launches a 152 Inch 4K2K Plasma

It's meant for commercial markets of course, but admit it, this is just plain cool.

There are three new plasmas that are shipping from Panasonic later this year, but 85 and 103 inch sets just don't excite folks the way they used to. They're the desires of years gone by. But 152 inches, that's a number we can get behind.

And if a 152 inch plasma isn't enough to get you going, keep in mind that Panasonic's display is 3D capable. Still not enough? How about a 4,096 x 2,160 resolution? That's right, it's a massive screen that can do 3D, and it's got a resolution that's over four times that of 1080p.

According to Panasonic's site, the TH-152UX1 weighs in at about 1,300 pounds, so if you want it, you'll have to consider the cost of a crew to move it. Oh, and you'll be shelling out for electricity too. The TH-152UX1 sucks down 4,500 watts.
