Panasonic adds 2 new affordable plasmas In the opening of the 2007 CEDIA show, plasma television giant Panasonic announced that it is launching two new and more affordable 1080p plasma television sets to the masses. The TH-42PZ77 and the TH-50PZ77, 42-inch and 50-inch respectively are set to ship this month with a suggested retail price of $1799.95 and $2799.95.
Panasonic claims that the addition of these two new PZ77 based televisions give consumers the choice of even more high-definition plasma televisions capable of broadcasting in the highest possible Resolution to date, thereby expanding their already deep grasp on the plasma HDTV market. These two sets join the 700 and 750 series sets that all share features such as SD memory card slots so consumers can view pictures and video from their cameras in beautiful 1080p.

"CEDIA is the perfect environment to introduce Panasonic's expanded line of 1080p Plasmas," stated Dennis Eppel, Vice President, Panasonic Display Company. "Custom installers are a very important part of our business and with this in mind we are confident that the depth and outstanding picture quality of Panasonic's Plasmas will meet and exceed the installer's requirements. In the end, Panasonic's commitment to providing the highest quality ensures that we will continue to meet consumer desire for a High-Definition lifestyle."

To round out the features on these new sets, you can expect the usual 1920x1080 resolution, more than 2 million Pixels and a contrast ratio of 10,000:1. The screen itself features an anti-glare shield over each new set and connectivity comes by way of two HDMI inputs, three S-video inputs, three composite video inputs and two component video inputs. Another feature to note is the inclusion of Panasonic's EZ-Sync™ technology which connects all Panasonic home entertainment and video equipment together for ease of use with one remote control.
