After the massive $9.7 billion loss that plasma screens were largely responsible for, you'd think some time would pass before Panasonic came up with a new, ambitious project based on the technology.
Instead, less than two days after the publishing of that financial disaster, Panasonic is back on stage with a plasma screen in tow.
This time though, we're not looking at a TV or monitor, but a whiteboard substitute.
Measuring 65 inches in diagonal, the Panasonic TH-65PB1 is meant to be adopted by public schools.
The panel can be set both vertically and horizontally and, through a new electronic pen system, should quickly produce smooth and accurate writing.
No price has been given, but availability is slated for late June in US, Europe and Japan. Later, 85-inch and 103-inch versions will debut.
