How sweet would it be if this film was applied to Plasma televisions? Unbeatable black levels, lovely natural colours and the elimination of the biggest problem with plasmas - glare from the screen glass!

It's a shame Sony have dropped Plasmas in favour of LCD's. I would buy a plasma coated with this in a heartbeat!!

Panasonic could license this....

Hey, I can dream, can't I?
