It's hard to describe just how much of an impact a screen of this enormity has unless you're standing, jaw agape, in front of it. But to try and put in terms you might vaguely comprehend, its 103in screen would comfortably home no less than four 50in plasma or LCD TVs.

There's no doubt, then, that whatever visuals your business decides to run on this leviathan of screens will be seen. The only question is if the screen has anything more than simply enormity going for it. After all, while size helps, it definitely isn't everything

Given the bewildering array of different connection types used in the digital signage world, it's a relief to find the 103PF10EK adopting a modular approach to connectivity. For alongside fixed connections of a D-Sub PC port, 9-pin D-Sub serial port and audio ins and outs, the screen carries three separate bays for optional external connection boards.

A cool 13 of these boards are available, covering pretty much everything we could imagine anyone needing. Check out the specification box for a full list. The screen's other key specifications kick off with an inevitable full HD resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels, and a good by digital signage standards contrast ratio of 5000:1.

The screen is also compatible with a fearsome array of video and PC formats (check out the Specifications section), and Panasonic's professional division has tried very hard to make the 103PF10EK adaptable to the needs of different users.
