Just yesterday, we reported about Panasonic’s plan to start selling two 3D plasma TVs (a 42- and a 46-inch model) on the Japanese market next month. And today, the same company announced [press release in English] it will start accepting orders for another batch of three new 3D plasma TVs on July 1. Targeted at “professional users”, these TVs are bigger. Much bigger.

The lineup consists of a 85-, a 103-, and even a 152-inch monster screen (the TH-152UX1). The latter is, according to Panasonic, the world’s largest 4K 3D plasma TV. The company says it’s large enough to display life-size images of people.

Technically, buyers will get 4,096 x 2,160 pixels for the biggest model (full HD for the smaller ones), a native contrast ratio of 5,000,000:1, and two HDMI ports (four in the case of the smaller screens). The 152-inch TV weighs a whopping 590kg (almost double the weight of the smaller models combined) and is sized at an impressive 3,600×1,980×149.5mm.

Panasonic says they expect the TVs to ship both in Japan and the US in the fall, followed by other markets “soon” after. No word on prices yet.
