It's started shipping now and there are way too many small threads so I thought it's 'bout time to get organized, I think...


For official specs and 10-series brochure please find attachments - keep in mind that no speakers nor any pedestal/mount included by default (it's not a consumer model).

Manual for both TH50PF10UK and TH-65PF10UK

10-series Professional Plasma Displays general brochure


Besides the RS-232 serial port they come with 15-pin D-SUB VGA (fixed), 3xBNC component/RGB w/ 2xRCA stereo audio TY-42TM6A (slot#3) inputs plus the new 1080p24-capable 2xHDMI v1.2 TY-FB10HMD board (slot#2) installed by default so you still have one vacant (slot#1). Specs also indicate HDMI board can be moved into any other slot.

WRT 1080p24: a week ago I opened a ticket about it at Panasonic and got a call back few hopurs later. The engineer told me he hasn't seen this unit yet but when I asked whether the reason behind recommending 50Hz/100Hz for 1080p24 is that it displays at 48Hz/96Hz instead of doing a 2:3 pulldown for 60Hz, he answered "it will try to display the signal it receives as it is and if it cannot then starts tuning". I asked back does it mean 48Hz or 96Hz he said yes but remember, he hasn't seen the unit and IIRC he even mentioned there's not much docs about it either.

Long story short: it seems to be one of the first displays to do proper 24p BUT it needs to be cofirmed.

OK so the MSRP was originally set to a ridiculous $3,500 . I wonder if we could team up enough members to get AVS to organize a Power Buy...

The new dual HDMI board is supported in slots 1 and 2 but not in slot 3 (component only) following the convention of other boards.


I was told a 24p tidbit by a factory engineer, from what I could understand from the not so easy translation, 24p is doubled within the HDMI board to 48. It is similar to how the Kuros work except that they triple their signal to 72.


He gave no other information so I provide the above as stated without any further explanation.

Thanks for the great news, so it indeed seems to be a 48Hz/96Hz set!


Sorry about the HDMI board - in the manual I clearly see the "slot123" marking on the dual HDMI board's schematics...

That 48hz / 96hz info does indeed sound like great news. If Rance's tests prove everthing out, I think this is the one for me.


Could a power buy include 65's also, and have such purchases been more economical than the better published on line prices?

Does anybody have an reliable information concerning the availability of the TH-50PF10UK? I thought they were supposed to be shipping by now?

The 19UK won't be shipping for maybe 9 years



Visualapex shows the TH-50PF10UK as "IN STOCK"

Talked to VisualApex this morning and despite the info on their site they do not in fact have any TH-50PF10UK's in stock but I did find out that Panasonic has started shipping them.


Oh, I also found out that you were right about the 19UK's- the lead time on them is pretty far out

I have been following the PH10 and PF10 threads and posts all over the board. Thanks for starting the thread. This is my first post, I swear if I earned minimum wage for the hours I've spent reading everyone's posts for the last few months I coulda bought an MSRP anything by now.


My biggest hurdles which I hope the PH or PF10UK will handle is the buzzing issue and contrast. I live at 7200' and have a well daylit Living/TV room. So if I can see it and not hear it I'll have made the right choice, otherwise it's a bug zapper XBR4 or the new Toshiba LX LCD.


It seems in all the posts that Panasonics buzz the least (fewest complaints) and seem to out shine other brands in contrast, without pushing the settings to high (that is just a gut feeling I get from the posts). Would you Panny owners think that these sets will do well in a daylit room with no direct sunlight. Curtains are drawn for the good stuff.


My viewing habits are 80% direcTV, 20% movies and Santa is bringing a Wii for the kids in a few weeks.


Thanks

Doug

T2K,


Thanks for starting this thread.



Now allow me to display my ignorance...



If it displays at either 50 or 100Hz, would this not seem to be directed at the PAL market instead? Otherwise, why not just call it 48/96HZ?


Any idea as to how the 100 (or 96) figures in? Is it capable of quadrupling the input as well as doubling it?


This definitely has my interest peaked.

Ditto T2K for starting this thread. Here are some screen shots of my Panasonic TH-65PF10UK. I am very pleased with what I have been testing. It is not perfect but EXCELLANT for me. I am testing my last years Panasonic Model 65 inch 600U against the new one & I am seeing very slight differences between the two. Also I would like to compliment Chris with Cleveland Plasma where I bought this Th-65PF10UK. This was my first experience with mail ordering something this expensive. Mine arrived fast & in perfect condition with not even one bad pixel that I can find. Very nice indeed.


T2K asked if I could set the computer to display 48 , 50 & 100 hertz to see how it behaves. I will do this on Tuesday & post back.

Excellent input Rance, thanks!


Could you also run some judder tests at those frequencies, movie pans etc...


If also using a PC, use judder test and a sweeping white bar test if poss.


Any pics of letterboxed movies to show black bars?


TIA!

You can see 4 UFOs chasing 3 helicopters that are chasing 2 speed boats
! The UFOs are my over head lights in this small room with the big screen. This shows the glare issues with Plasma. This new Panasonic is better than my 600U with glare.

Pics look good. However, is this display covering your window?

Yes it is covering the bottom part of a non functional small window. The sun doesn't shine in much because of the 16 inch sophit overhang & this is on the north side of the house. The sun shines on the south side in my location.
