NEC professional plasmas
Though better known for their PC monitors in North America, NEC has announced two new plasma displays intended for professional use, in realms such as the corporate boardroom. The PX-50XM6J is a 50-inch set, and by extension, the PX-60XM5J (pictured) measures 60 inches. Few other facts are in the public domain, but they do use NEC's Clear Crystal Panel technology, which should add 75 percent more brightness and 360 percent more contrast over previous models from the company. The sets are described as "HD Ready," supporting DVI-I and HDCP, but despite their sizes, are limited to 1365x760 resolution -- below 1080p.
