The new models will fall under the Viera brand and will offer new screen sizes, higher contrast ratio and improved picture quality.

The top range of the new line is the VIERA PZ800 series, featuring 1080p plasmas in four different sizes, the 42-inch TH-42PZ800, the 46-inch TH-46PZ800, the 50-inch TH-50PZ800 and the 58-inch class TH-58PZ800, respectively. Each screen will also be THX certified, said the company. A more important feature is an improved native contrast ratio of 30,000:1. Each will also include a PC input, VIERA link and four HDMI connections.

The middle of the road VIERA PZ85 series will include 1080p plasma displays in 3 different sizes, the 42-inch TH-42PZ85, the 46-inch TH-46PZ85 and the 50-inch TH-50PZ85, respectively. Each will include the same features as the VIERA PZ800 series but will also include an SD memory card slot.

The lowest of the range,the VIERA PZ80 series, still boasts nice specs. Each include HDMI connections, VIERA link, SD memory card slot and native contrast ratio of 20,000:1.

The company said it was committed to 1080p displays but still introduced two 720p HD plasmas in its lineup. The VIERA 42-inch TH-42PX80 and VIERA 50-inch TH-50PX80 will have improved contrast ratio of 15,000:1 among other common features of its more expensive cousins.
