[ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> What's up guys, I'm Brian Tong with CNET here at CES 2008. This time we're in Panasonic's Booth and we're checking out the TH46PZ850. I know you guys can remember this. Now this 1080p plasma TV is coming in 3 sizes, 46 inches, they've never done that one before plus a 50-inch and a 58-inch screen. Now, the contrast ratio here is gonna be 30,000:1 and that's gonna give you deeper blacks, it's the highest that they've done. Also, a feature we love about the Panasonic TV is the fact that they have an SD card slot on the TV, but the new thing about this, is SD cards with the ABC HD codec will now allow you to play HD videos through that card, so, that's pretty smooth as well. A few kind of other cool things, they have this thing called the Viera Cast, and what it does, is allows you access some fun web content like YouTube videos or also your photos on Picasa. And the other thing they have is a tough under force feature where a lot of people now, the perception is plasmas are kind of weak. You throw your Wii it might break, they've tested this, so, if something like that happens, they're gonna say, it's not gonna crack. So, there you have it, the series 850 from the Viera Plasma Display Line from Panasonic, I'm Brian Tong from CES 2008. ^M00:01:12 [ Music ]
