Unveiled: New Panasonic Large-Format 4K LED Displays

Share

When it comes to 4K TV, bigger is always better. More specifically, big TVs are always better if they’re 4K. Even though very little native 4K content is currently available, 4K TVs can up-convert standard HD content to near-4K quality. You see, once you get beyond 60 inches or so in size, full-HD TVs don’t look all that sharp, especially when viewed from a short distance. But with four times the resolution of 2K TVs, 4K TVs currently display the sharpest image possible from a 2K signal.

Panasonic just announced two new monster-sized 4K TVs, the 84" TH-84LQ70 and the 98" TH-98LQ70. These huge TVs will enhance any room that can accommodate them, but they’re really intended more for applications such as broadcast production, digital signage, control rooms, and so on.

The TH-98LQ70 and TH-84LQ70 have a native 4K resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels and they’re equipped with Panasonic’s latest image-enhancement technology that up-converts non-4K sources. The displays are protected by a scratch-proof glass panel and they also feature a rugged aluminum frame that also helps protect these monsters from damage. The displays can be installed vertically or horizontally, depending on the application, and they have the same screw holes as Panasonic’s existing large-format plasma displays to minimize installation time. The displays also feature SLOT3.0 architecture, which allows for easy interface changes. The 98" TH-98LQ70 and 84" TH-84LQ70 displays will begin shipping in September, 2014.

Please inform me when these monitors are available.

Unfortunately, we do not have the TH-98LQ70 and TH-84LQ70 up on our site/ in our system yet.  Once we do, you could choose the Notify When in Stock option on their pages, and we would send you an email when they came into stock.  Until we have them up on our site, you would simply need to check back periodically.

Please keep me updated on availability

Currently these monitors are not yet featured on our website.  We hope to have links on them up soon.  Once we do there will be an option to receive notifications on its availability there.  Until then we ask that you check back with us periodically.

Cool stuff but have to say screens this size are really unnecessary.

Are they also smart TV's? What is the actual width of the TH84LQ70 including the frame? Price?

Thank you.

Carl

These monitors are not smart TVs. The preliminary specifications for the TH84LQ70 indicate that the width is 87.9". Currently, Panasonic has not provided us with a price for this item, however as soon as it becomes available to us, it will be posted on the B&H website. Please check back periodically for updates.

would like to see examples.

 Will they be available for 3D viewing?

If so , passive or active?

Are they just "monitors" or are they full "Smart " TVs ?

I personally would prefer just a monitor, no speakers, no "Smart", not even a broadcast tuner really.

I have the audio and video source covered, like most folks who might be buying something like this.

Besides, why pay for stuff you'll never use?

Lets see prices ASAP ?

And sorry JH, screen sizes like this ARE necassary !

Hi Keith -

These monitors are not Smart TVs.    There are no tuners or speakers built into these monitor displays. They do not offer 3D functionality or features.  Currently, Panasonic has not provided us with a pricing.  As soon as pricing becomes available to us, we will post it on the B&H website. Please check back periodically for updates.

Below is a link to Panasonic's website with further preliminary information on the displays for you to review:

I have an application at church where a large screen is required. (unless the price is outlandish)

please send me more info on this

Below is a link to Panasonic's website with further preliminary information on the displays for you to regard:

Prelim specs:

http://panasonic.net/prodisplays/solutions/preliminary2014/lq70.html

These are pro displays, and as such are likely pretty pricy. Appears that networking is only provided for control, so likely no streaming directly to the TV. Edge lit/back lit depending on the model. They do have some small speakers.

Don't think these would be at home in a home theater. Look to be monitors with some tiny speakers. Very rugged build for outdoor use and those features will likely add significantly tothe cost and not needed at home. A "non rugged" version would likely be attractive to someone only wanting a monitor.

Pls advise pricing when available.

At the present time Panasonic has not specified a price nor indicated when they will become available.  Please check back on our website periodically and we should hopefully this information posted up soon.
