SAN DIEGO, March 14, 2005 – Sony Electronics today introduced a 42-inch flat panel plasma professional display.

The FWD-42PV1 plasma flat panel display has several features that make it well-suited for the demands of today’s business environment, including a category-leading 10,000:1 contrast ratio, W-VGA resolution (852×480), and the ability to display images and video from a wide assortment of inputs and formats.

It also features two slots to accommodate a television tuner and the BKM-FW32 network card, enabling users to monitor the display’s status and troubleshoot multiple networked displays from one central location.
