PSCo introduces TH-80LF50, Panasonic’s first 80-inch professional LCD, to UK market with comprehensive support for channel partners

Reading, UK, 1 February 2013 – PSCo has announced that the Panasonic TH-80LF50 80-inch full-HD professional LCD panel is now available for customers of its Technical Distribution and trade Rental business. The panel’s light weight and high brightness, signature Panasonic reliability, and PSCo value-add, including custom mounting solutions and flexible purchase or rental packages, satisfy applications in sectors such as retail, events, corporate, finance and leisure.

The TH-80LF50 is the first 80-inch large-format LCD from Panasonic Visual System Solutions, and joins the company’s 70-inch, 85-inch and 103-inch displays also available through PSCo. Channel partners can see the TH-80LF50 in action alongside the Panasonic TH-55LFV50 55-inch video wall display and other high-performance displays from other major industry brands, at PSCo’s Reading Assessment Centre; the only such facility in the UK allowing direct side-by-side comparison of leading professional-quality systems.

“We have built a strong and successful working relationship with Panasonic, anchored in the outstanding quality and performance of Panasonic displays and comprehensive PSCo support services covering every aspect of our channel partners’ needs,” said Stuart Holmes, CEO, PSCo Group. “This new ultra-thin, power-efficient and durable large-format display, rated for 24/7 operation, enables us to help a broader range of customers to benefit from high-performance digital signage solutions.”
