    News - Panasonic goes 3D crazy at CES

    Panasonic thinks 3D is quite a big deal. About 152in across, in fact.

    Waste of time and space. Even if you find a concrete wall big and strong enough to hold it, and you have a fission generator to power it. 1080p isn't going to give you anywhere near enough resolution for a display that size. And plasma? Really?

    Well it apparently supports 4kx2k, but obviously TV won't be streamed in that quality, if that's what you meant.

    But actually, IMHO, it is going to be plenty. Because you're sitting at it across a room - and it would need to be a big room as well (152" is massive). For reference, my projector at a distance of roughly four metres produces a 100" image, give or take. That fills the wall, and I don't have a particularly small wall (although granted, it's not as big as in a decent-size living room), but even 100" is only 2/3rds the size in each direction of this mammoth TV.

    Plus - while for me, displaying 720p at 4 metres gives an unnecessarily large image with an annoyingly low resolution, my housemates have worse eyesight and for them it's a more appropriate size. And displaying 1080p gives a font size that's really too small for me to comfortably read text without zooming in. Increase the screen size by 50% and keep the resolution at 1080p and that'd be pretty much perfect.

    Obviously there are other benefits, like increased picture sharpness, with higher resolutions - for example with dpi turned up. But 1080p would actually be adequate for most tasks for most people at most distances. It's just nice to have the extra pixels there if your usage scenario is a little different - but for watching TV/blu-rays, you're not going to be sitting close enough that you notice pixellation in 1080p.
