And a new design. Man i hate panasonics display design.
As long as it doesn't ape the super-thin Samsung designs, I'd bite. I rather like the styling on the VT30 (or rather, grown to appreciate it).
Everyone is hoping for 10 lumen, but I keep reminding myself that this is Panasonic we're talking about. Seems unlike them to make such a leap without progressively milking every last cent out of the tech they are using now.
after so many years wait, even the 2012 model still can't compete with LCD for brightness, where's the 10 Lumen tech?
This thread seems dead so I'll post something here, LOL! The new Panasonic ZT60 "may" have some 10 Lumen tech built in. I can neither confirm nor deny this. The ZT has the most improved upon Kuro tech yet implemented into it though, so there is a chance.
Oh well... the ZT60 may also be "only" a VT50 backpanel with new red phosphors (like the VT60), a new filter layers bonding process (conductive and optic films) and a further improved dynamic driving system.
I don't know why but I just don"t buy the idea that ZT60 got a new panel structure (separate priming cell, black ribs etc...) or any Kuro tech.
The thing is, though, in the years that we’ve been waiting for OLED to become an actual thing, plasma snuck up and nipped its heels in all of those aspects. Panasonic’s ZT60-series plasmas are being hailed as the best display of the show by many of my colleagues, and deservedly so. The blacks are nigh perfect. Brightness is approaching LED/LCD levels. Colors are just startlingly good.
