Panasonic introduced their new PT-50PD3 HDTV plasma TV today which boasts the claim of having the highest contrast of any plasma to date at 3000:1. Contrast is a key issue in flat panel designs with one of the biggest knocks on the super-slender monitors being their lack of black levels as compared to traditional CRT TVs. The PT-50PD3 is HDTV capable for both 720p and 1080I sources and is priced at $15,995.
