If there is a market large enough to make production of this product feasible, good for Panasonic. But I wonder what percentage of the filmgoing public has a room in their home in which one can comfortably watch a show on a 103-inch screen.

This is the sort of thing that could kill the industry, except that the set will be so damn expensive and it has to be professionally installed.

Panasonic will sell a flat-panel TV with a 103-inch screen by the end of the year, the company said Wednesday.

Based on currently announced screens, the new television stands to be the world's largest flat-panel set.

A prototype was first shown at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas in January this year, but at that time Panasonic didn't have anything to say about a commercial product. However, on Wednesday the company's U.S. unit, Panasonic of North America, said it will be available in December this year. Pricing was not announced.

The widescreen panel has a full high-definition resolution of 1920 pixels by 1080 pixels and a 3000:1 contrast ratio.
