The massive size and 8K resolution earn Panasonic some serious bragging rights.
The folks over at Panasonic have revealed their newest record-setting creation – a 145" plasma with an 8K resolution. This thing is ridiculous.
Hideo Toyoda, managing director and CTO of AVC Networks Company at Panasonic says that the resolution is such that you'll think you're looking at reality. "It doesn't use 3D technology," he adds, "but the picture is so realistic, you feel truly immersed in the scene."
Panasonic will almost certainly tell you that the reason they create these stunning TVs is because they want to show off their abilities and show up their competitors. We're under the suspicion that they're doing it just to spite us. "Here's a TV that you want bad, but we'll totally never release it." Jerks. Ah well, we'd have to make some big adjustments to our living arrangements to fit the set in there anyway.
