LAS VEGAS--Not to be outdone by its competitors, Panasonic has displayed its own 4K OLED screen at CES with claims of it being the world's biggest.

Like the 4K display from Sony, the Panasonic 4K OLED is only a prototype but is the first OLED from a company that has thus far concentrated on plasma technology.

The 56-inch TV features a 3,840×2,160 resolution, weighs 27 pounds, and is less than half an inch thick. The bezel also appears very slim and equivalent to a mainstream LCD.

The company boasted that its new printing technology enabled it to make TVs that were larger and more competitively priced than its competitors.

The TV will be shown at the Panasonic booth at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Look out for a hands-on very soon!
