- Updated

A senior Panasonic official has confirmed to the press that Panasonic has developed its last plasma display panel.

Speaking at the launch of the ZT60 TV in New York (in the UK the model is sold as the ZT65) the vice president of Panasonic Display, Kiyoshi Okamoto, told The Verge that plasma panel development has ceased, and that the new flagship set uses ‘the last plasma panel’ to come out of its research and development operation.

However, he also said that the company will continue to make and sell TVs at least into next year honouring its commitment to the company’s customers.

Okamoto says there are no plans to restart plasma development at any time in the future, and that ‘OLED is one of the key future products’ for the future.
