Panasonic Debuts 98-inch and 84-inch Professional 4K LED Displays

Panasonic System Communications Company of North America, a leader in delivering technology solutions for government, enterprise and SMB markets, today announced two new large-format 4K LED displays along with other new professional AV technologies at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show.

As interest grows in 4K content capture, production and distribution, Panasonic engineered these 4K LED backlit LCD display store-produce stunningly sharp images in a streamlined form factor with the system expandability required for professional 4K applications. The 98" TH-98LQ70 and 84" TH-84LQ70 4K displays are ideal for a number of growing 4K resolution B2B applications including broadcast production, eye-catching digital signage for retail, rental and staging, design and simulation as well as command and control rooms. These displays, combined with Panasonic's imaging capture and workflow technologies, provide a one-stop solution for organizations with image creation needs.

These displays deliver exceptional clarity with an astounding 4K (3,840 x 2,160) resolution and are equipped with the company's next generation of image enhancement technology. This new technology up-converts non-4K sources to a higher level of picture quality - transforming ordinary Full HD resolution and a variety of PC signals into breathtakingly vivid images.

"We are receiving a growing demand of inquiries from our customers for high resolution workflow and display solutions, ranging from broadcast and industrial production to retail signage and event staging," said Art Rankin, Senior Director of Professional AV Technologies, Panasonic System Communications Company of North America. "With the introduction of our LQ70 Series of 4K displays, we're providing unmatched image quality in a slim yet ruggedized form factor to guarantee reliable, uninterrupted use by a wide variety of businesses, organizations and government agencies."

LQ70 Series displays are equipped with a protective glass and also feature a ruggedized aluminum frame. The series' durability was built on a strong legacy of durable Panasonic products including professional plasma displays and Toughbook mobile computers and tablets.

These displays can be installed both vertically and horizontally to meet a wide range of installation needs. Additionally, the LQ70 Series were designed with the same screw holes as Panasonic's existing large-format plasma displays to minimize installation time and costs. The displays are also built with SLOT3.0 architecture which provides for easy interface changes to match various applications. The 98" TH-98LQ70 and 84" TH-84LQ70 displays will begin shipment in September 2014.

do not hype about price... because there is word "Professional"... wich in buisness world means: "it is overpriced as furak... but don't worry, my proffesioanal buddy.... you are pro and whatever product you will be selling or creating with this overpriced screen - you can add extra price tag - so the cient is paying your this fancy crap... and in case if your client is also a company - then add word "Professional" to that product too". (of corsethere is also thing - that these products are only preoduced in very small amounts (and that fore - price thag must be cruel )

Yeah 40''-50'' size segment or even lower that will be interesting, this is just stupid they just connected 4 1920x1080 panels in to one, this is nothing new. Every manufacturer now days promoting 4k tvs over 60''+ there is no DPI increase ... ill skip every 4k tv until they come down to 40'' and 60hz same goes for monitors...

It is not designed to go into your living room. But rather it is used for in shop displays and the like.
