    www.ilgroup.co.uk have just added an 84" vision plasma screen.
    Apparently it weighs 130kg, and costs 24000 plus vat.
    Queue here please!

    Are these the displays BBC has switched to in News programmes?

    Or are they humble 60"?

    If I was mad enough to even think about spending this amount of money on a screen then i'f ceratinly be looking at the T&C's. I bought a 50" last year and it was only thanks to good 'ol Pioneer itself did I avoid becoming a victim of restricvtive T&Cs (once bitten twice shy);)

    I hope this isn't an example as the contrast is dire. Thought they were back projection myself but you never know? Might explain the impending increase in license fee.:laugh:

    Some chap over on the Tag Forums (who I believe works for the BBC) said that the BBC screens were indeed back projection using JVC D-ILA projection kit (hope I spelt that right).

    Considering the amount of ambient light in a studio I'm not surprised the piccy looks a tad washed out. ;)

    Crikey, I paid that for a boat last year and had cold sweats at night! What if it goes wrong at 13 months!

    Very droll, Imean, what if you spent the 34k on the plasma. Bet you can't fix that either.

    They use Stewart Filmscreen reapro screens. For the national news the "studio/newsroom" in the background is just a reapro screen.

    two seams in the middle.

    It's 4 42" panels stuck together. The join is 3mm, which doesn't sound all that bad.

    Bear in mind a pixel on most of the 42"er's is 1mm, it'll be noticeable. Fine for public displays etc.

    2 x 42" = 84"


    They will be in a 2x2 setup.

    The dimension is diagonal. So 4 panels in a 2X2 formation are equivalent to 84"

    thanks for enlightening me, so it's four seams or one giant cross in the middle-at that price- no thanks.

    Considering a 42"is £3500, say, I make that 14000 for the screens, and a spot of money for hardware and software, like a video wall. Why so expensive then?
