Panasonic Viera TH-50PZ800U 50-inch 1080p Plasma HDTV
It's interesting to see the improvements within each display standard. This Panasonic Viera plasma model introduces a contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1. This means that whites appear pure white and blacks appear true black, not dark grey as with most flat panels. This also supports a high degree of picture fluidity such that fast-moving images don't have a "ghosting" effect.
