    Panasonic takes wraps off new plasma screen
    Panasonic has today revealed some information about its upcoming new 42in plasma screen. Dubbed the 42PW6, it's due for launch in July and looks set to be Panasonic's first serious attempt in ages to take its plasma screens to the next level. The key development without a shadow of doubt is the inclusion of an improved version of Panasonic's superb Real Black system. This apparently helps the screen's all-important contrast leap from the already impressive quoted ratio of 3000:1 to a frankly extraordinary 4000:1.

    Other advances over the current PW5 models are improvements in Panasonic's plasma AI system, resulting in more sharpness and less flicker, and improved luminance efficiency, leading to a reduction in power consumption.

    Apparently another couple of new plasma screens presumably incorporating the 42PW6's improvements are due around September – and we'll tell you more about these just as soon as we hear it.
