Boy, I hope that Cow can show this URL -
http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=Search&A=details&Q=&sku=4...

This is B+H Photo, showing the 50" hi end Panasonic Plasma (the one that AJA used at NAB2006, but the "next gen" version) for $1799. IN STOCK.

Is this cheap, or WHAT ?

Probably trying to liquidate their stock to make room for the 1080p plasmas, I'd imagine.

Oh yeah, they are coming if not already here:

http://www.panasonic.com/business/provideo/proplasma/plasma_landing_page.as...

They are marked 'Full HD'

I just took delivery of the one Bob linked to before the holidays and it's an awe inspiring display. I work mostly in 720p, so having a 1080p display didn't really matter to me and as Bob has pointed out, the price was really right.

If you look at Panasonic's own website, you see that they show the 9 model 50" plasma much cheaper than the older 8 model.

I bought a 50" 9UK for $ 1,699 just before new years.

And it has a $ 100 rebate + 5 year warranty.

$ 1,599 is amazing for this panel.

I just saw the new Westinghouse 42" LCD display, with DVI, VGA, and analog component input.
This is a 1080p display, and it's $1300, but my client just bought 9 of these, and they got them from Best Buy for $900 each !!!!!!!!

The world is changing (and there is some guy out there saying "I'm still gonna buy that $35,000 Sony BVM HD CRT monitor").

The Westinghouse LVM-42w2 (42in) and LVM-47w1 (47in) are amazing displays. Both are native 1080P.

Beware - Westinghouse also makes some El Cheapo displays that don't stack up, but this LVM series are the "real deal" !!

Excellent blacks ! And the backlight is even adjustable.

One note: The way these come setup from the factory is awful, but anyone with a good eye (and/or a copy of Avia) can set one up perfect in a minute or two.

Hi Borjis -

let me answer your question "which is better". When you go to the NAB show in Las Vegas, and you see EVERY manufacturer of editing systems - AJA, AVID, Apple, Blackmagic - ALL using the Panasonic TH50 series monitor for their booths - even if there is a better display out there - you become very prejudice towards this model. With that said - money is money, and if you can "get away" with the cheaper display - then it becomes a good buy.

Most hi end houses that I am dealing with are simply buying the Panasonic 26" BT-LH2600W. If they have a monster display in the room (42", 50", etc.) - it's for a "client monitor".

Bob Zelin (I miss the Sony PVM-20L5/1 CRT monitor).

The Panasonic TH50 series have always been my favorite plasma display, but keep in mind the reason there are so many of them being used in trade shows and other public forums also has to do with Panasonic's liberal marketing policy. They seed lots of these displays to "partners" for little or no money so we patrons will see and fall in love with them. That being said, I personally prefer the Westinghouse LVM series over ANY plasma display. But that's just me !

I've not seen the Westinghouse yet, but so far I've seen nothing that's as good as our Panny displays. Paired up with our Sony PVML5's they look so good we turn off the PVM's and the client will watch the fully color corrected shows on our 50" model and soon the 42" will be up and running.

I know Bart has a critical eye when it comes to displays so I'll be interested in seeing how these compare to the Panny. Like I said, nothing I've seen comes close.

Hey are you guys getting any delay values with either the 50" Panny or Westinghouse? On my 42" client-side Panny, I get a small delay (I think something like 30 milliseconds or something if I remember) which I can dial out by the use of a digital delay setup. Without it, it feels about a frame off sync. Curious if these newer display models have eliminated this or not.

Thanks,

I have FCP set up in a 2 frame offset when using the Panny display with 1080i material. With 720p we go with 0. Not sure why, but there you go.
