    Does anyone know if Panny have any plans to launch the PW6 in 37" guise. I know they do the 37PA20 with inbuilt tuner but I would rather go with a panel.

    No, I'm afraid. 42" or 50" only.

    I've seen a post of a press release on avsforum that suggests there is a Panny 37" with HDMI due to arrive in June. I guess this would be a series 7 model.

    PANASONIC DEBUTS VIERAä FLAT-PANEL DISPLAYS

    Panasonic’s Most Extensive Flat Panel Display Line Ever
    Includes Integrated HD Cable-Ready Plasma Sets and
    Newly Designed, Ultra Bright LCD TVs

    LAS VEGAS, Nev. (January 7, 2004) ¾ With the launch of its VIERAä series,
    Panasonic ¾ a leader in digital television ¾ continues to advance
    flat-panel display technology to new levels of performance. In its
    strongest flat-panel display line ever, the company is introducing ten
    High Definition and Enhanced Definition models, in screen sizes ranging
    from 14 inches to 50 inches (diagonal screen measurement). The VIERA
    plasma line features new designer cosmetics, a fully integrated ATSC
    tuner for high definition reception, built-in CableCARDÔ slot – Panasonic
    was the first manufacturer to receive certification from CableLabsÒ for
    an integrated digital television set (DTV) that connects directly to
    cable television systems and receives digital services without requiring
    a set-top box - and HDMI (High Definition and Multimedia Interface)
    input. The three high definition plasmas feature a 3000:1 contrast ratio
    for a brilliant, razor-sharp picture, while the two enhanced definition
    displays provide a 4000:1 contrast ratio.

    The VIERA LCD line includes three 4:3 displays and two High Definition
    models with 16:9 widescreen displays. The creation of this special
    collection, and the broad range of technologies it incorporates, confirms
    Panasonic’s strong commitment to the fast-growing flat-panel market.

    The worldwide flat-panel TV market reached 4.3 million units in 2003 and
    is expected to reach 13.8 million units in 2005. Recognizing this growth
    potential and in order to meet the rapid increase in market demand,
    Panasonic is strengthening its product line-up and production capacity
    for flat-panel displays.

    “We are committed to continually creating breakthrough technology in
    flat-panel displays,” said Ed Wolff, Vice President, Panasonic Display
    Group. “One of the reasons Panasonic developed the VIERA series was to
    affirm this commitment to the flat-panel market and to build upon the
    superior quality and reputation we have established in the flat-panel
    display arena. The concept behind VIERA can be summed up by the phrase
    ‘beyond borders’ ¾ the borders of conventional television. That is the
    philosophy that motivated Panasonic’s thinking in developing the VIERA
    name and line — pushing the borders of technology and design.”

    Among the new digital flat-panel displays being introduced at the 2004
    International CES are three High Definition plasma models, TH-50PX25U/P
    (50-inch diagonal screen measurement), TH-42PX25U/P (42-inch diagonal)
    and TH-37PX25U/P (37-inch diagonal), all featuring an ATSC integrated
    tuner, 3000:1 contrast ratio, Picture-in-Picture, SD Memory Card slots
    and HDMI input. With the use of an authorized CableCARD, these models are
    also able to receive digital cable television systems services directly
    from the cable operator1 without requiring a separate cable box.

    Models TH-50PX25U/P and TH-42PX25U/P offer both SD Memory Card and PCMCIA
    slots, while the 37PX25U/P features an SD Memory Card slot.

    Two Enhanced Definition sets, TH-37PD25U/P (37-inch diagonal) and
    TH-42PD25U/P (42-inch diagonal) complete the plasma line-up. They feature
    an integrated ATSC tuner, 4000:1 contrast ratio, HDMI input, 3/2
    pulldown, two-tuner Picture-in-Picture and SD Memory Card slots.


    Viera LCD Televisions
    The VIERA LCD line includes three 4:3 sets: models TC-14LA2, TC-17LA2,
    and TC-20LA2, and two HD 16:9 displays: models TC-26LX20 and TC-32LX20.

    All new LCD models feature a three-line digital comb filter. HD models
    TC-26LX20 and TC-32LX20 deliver a resolution of 1280x 768, and include an
    HDMI input, and PCMCIA and SD Memory Card slots to aid in network
    connectivity. All of the LCD flat panel models have a brightness of
    450cd/m2 and a 170-degree viewing angle. The TC-17LA2, TC-20LA2,
    TC-26LX20 and TC-32LX20 feature a 500:1 contrast ratio, while the
    TC-14LA2 delivers a 450:1 contrast ratio.
