Trend Hunter already introduced you to the 150" TV a week or two ago, but the giant billboard of a screen has finally been unveiled.

TVs just keep getting bigger and better. At the Consumer Electronics Show, Matsushita unveiled what's officially been titled the World's Largest Flat Panel Television.

Matsushita also said it will sell TVs that can directly access YouTube.

"The new TV boasts four times better resolution than full high-definition 1080p picture quality and offers a screen the size of nine 50-inch plasma televisions," Reuters detailed.

At 150 inches, the Japanese TV is simply massive.

"Matsushita's new screen, which measures 12-1/2 feet when measured diagonally, tops the Panasonic brand maker's 103-inch plasma TV released last year. The 103-inch television has sold 3,000 units over the last year."

It's basically the size of some movie screens still found in retro cinemas, just with very hi res graphics.

Once it becomes available in 2009, Matsushita expects it will be used mostly for advertising as a moving billboard. Stats for 150" Flat Panel TV (FOLLOW UP) Trending: Older & Mild
