The first plasma display measured in feet instead of inches is available in the U.S. for the first time. LG Electronics continues to reshape the digital display landscape with the announcement of the U.S. availability of its 71-inch Plasma High-Definition Monitor (MW-71PY10), the largest in production worldwide. Reaffirming the company's position as a consumer electronics industry leader, the mammoth plasma offers consumers the finest in home entertainment with the most vivid and realistic viewing experience.

The MW-71PY10 boasts 1920 by 1080p display resolution, making it among the first plasma displays to offer the full HD specification, about twice the resolution of conventional plasma displays. The unit also incorporates LG's proprietary XD Engine technology, which takes the low resolution of analog signals to near high-definition levels, providing consumers with better overall picture quality and viewing experience. This offering can be broken down into six distinct processes that help to improve brightness, enhance detail and apply more accurate color and noise reduction with film-like high-resolution.

Advanced connectivity options include HDMI and DVI inputs, both with HDCP for digital connection. Multiple HD component inputs as well as composite and S-Video provide flexible options for a variety of source components. There is also an RGB input for PC connectivity. Flexible PIP, split-zoom and twin- picture features allows sub-windows to be moved, resized, swapped, and split into multiple windows (up to nine). With a 1,200:1 contrast ratio, the display offers a crisp, colorful viewing experience. The 71-inch plasma also boasts multiple LG technologies to minimize the likelihood of image retention.
