If they keep going big like that... Who will want a front projector?

The price had better come down considerably before anyone would even think this.

I imagine you will always have a market for projectors. Some like the picture, and then there's the motion enhancements that new tvs continue to add that many don't like.

8k? How soon will they have anything that would take advantage of that properly?

I admire the engineering ability that came up with something like this but it's starting to get a bit ridiculous.

I think it is great that A/V companies are producing these large 8k displays.

But, my question is in this economy is it worth while? Meaning, with the high expense that these display's sell at, will they be able to make money on them? If the economy was better, I can see it happening but with a down economy it would be hard to make the return unless they are just targeting to the 1% who have the money and desire for these displays even thou 4k content is not here yet.

If they are not able to make profit from these 4k displays, then they will shelf the displays and potentially not produce them again..

A 145" plasma! can you imagine the heat generated by that beast not to mention the power it needs. I would not be surprised if it had to have a dedicated 30amp circuit.
With OLED around the corner I would think that Panasonic would be smarter to go that rout in that size.

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20
Panasonic TC-P50ST60, HD-PVR & WDTV Live, Harmony 900
