Panasonic to roll out another two large-screen 3D plasma TVs

It seems Japanese companies are releasing 3D displays on an almost daily basis. Yesterday, we reported about Toshiba’s 3D HDTV, and today Panasonic Japan announced [JP] two new 3D plasma TVs for their VIERA line-up, the TH-P65VT2 (65 inches) and the TH-P58VT2 (58 inches).

Both TVs require active shutter glasses to view images in 3D (the TY-EW3D10W, pictured below). They have the following features:

  • full HD panel
  • 5,000,000:1 contrast ratio
  • 6×4cm×2 speakers
  • VIERA link
  • Ethernet
  • Video-on-demand-enabled
  • YouTube-optimized
  • DLNA support
  • Skype support
  • four HDMI interfaces

Panasonic plans to start selling the TVs in Japan from May 28. Prices: $7,500 for the 65-inch model and $6,100 for the 58-incher. The 3D glasses sell for $110, but Panasonic throws in a pair when you get one of their TVs.

Both plasmas are following two smaller models Panasonic showed back in February. The company has already entered the American market with its 3D devices.
