I currently have an NEC 4010 LCD (40 inch) monitor in my office for small group presentations. It has a DVI video card that can support the 1360 x 768 resolution. The monitor has a DVI input. Using the native resolution with a DVI connection, as usual, produces awesome picture quality.
I would like to get a slightly larger monitor for a conference room (unfortunately, the physical attributes of the room do not allow a ceiling mounted projector).
I want a 46 - 50' LCD (or plasma). I could spend the $4000 and get an NEC MultiSync LCD4610 and be assured of crisp picture quality.
However, does anyone have experience with using a 50in LCD or Plasma TV? (I think I could save $2000 going this route.) I believe this would require a DVI to HDMI cable (unless someone knows about a $2000 TV with a DVI input). I still want to use a resolution of 1360 x 768. I am concerned that the picture quality with an HDMI cable would not be as crisp as a DVI to DVI connection. Any experience to share / suggestions? Would a plasma be less clear than an LCD at native resolution (with DVI connection)?
I would appreciate any help I can get.
Thanks in advance.
