"Version 6, planned for next year, will focus on full-high-definition capability, higher emitting efficiency and simplified circuitry. The target specs will be 3.5-lm/W efficiency and a 400:1 contrast ratio in bright ambient light. Based on the road map, a 63-inch full-HD panel will be available within 2006. Kim said Samsung SDI has already prototyped 80-inch and 102-inch full-HD panels."

Anyone see the 71" plasma on LG's website? I believe the model is the 71PY10. Contrast is only marketed at 1200:1, but its 1920x1080P. I stumbled upon it last night while researching their 50" products.

The LG is old news. $75K right now if you know who to find that can sell you one.


As for bright light, the answer is "no, not necessarily." They are quoting simultaneous or ANSI CR in a brightly lit room and they might get that by being super bright. But the blacks might still not be as dark or as detailed. So it's hard to judge dark-room performance from light-room performance.

Interesting, Mark. Still learning, here. It did bewilder me yesterday when I noticed them denote the CR on some products 'in dark room'.
