It Lives: The Shinoda 145″ PTA Plasma TV

May 7, 2009 by  

shinoda-145-inch-curved-plasmaShinoda is known for making some very large plasma tube array TV’s and they’ve been perfecting the technology since 2007 os so. You see, in Japan and Asian territories, Plasma is definitely NOT dead.

What started as a single 43-inch prototype that looked pretty nice grew to a monstrous 125-inches in mid-2008 or so. Now they’ve even topped that number.

Shinoda recently announced a gargantuan 145″ prototype with six PTA panels sewn together in a 2-meter x 3-meter square. The 960 x 720 res might not seem like a big deal, except it isn’t heavy: just 15.8-pounds? Now that is really impressive.

The panels of the plasma screen itself are only 1-mm thick, which set our salivary glands into overdrive. These displays are set to be used mostly for commercial applications for now, but some of this technology could find its way into our home TVs at some point or another.
