"Mitsubishi Electric has consistently delivered big, bright, technologically-advanced displays from one of the world's largest HD video screen at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas, and now to our super-sized 92-inch 3D Home Cinema TV," said Frank DeMartin, vice president, marketing at Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America.

The 92-inch 3D TV joins the 60, 65, 73 and 82-inch versions in the 2011 Mitsubishi 3D TV line-up.
The 92-inch is not the only big thing that Mitsubishi will be showing off this CES, it will also unveil an OLED display panel for business use that measures a ground-breaking 155-inches, as well as the company's first 1080p full HD 3D home theatre projector.
