Panasonic 3D IFA
New set will appear in prototype form at CEATEC show in Japan next week

Just a few weeks after all the buzz about 3D TV at the IFA show in Germany, Panasonic has announced it has a prototype 50in Full HD 3D plasma TV ready to demonstrate to visitors to Japan's biggest consumer electronics show.

The set, which has been developed from the 103in screen demonstration the company showed last year, will be seen at CEATEC Japan 2009, which opens next Tuesday just outside Tokyo.

It sees the company bringing high-definition 3D down from large-scale show demonstrations to screen sizes likely to be more acceptable in the domestic environment.
