What type of tv would give really a sharp picture with nice color and contrast?

I want to use this to proof images with clients in person.

I'm thinking refresh rate doesn't matter as much because we are talking about still images here.

I'm wondering what type. LCD, plasma, etc...720, 1080?

I also want to be able to calibrate this tv. I have a x-rite colormunki display.

Thanks

Does it have to be a tv? You can get a much higher res monitor, and it'll look much better.

Bigger is better though. I'm going 50" + probably.

This is replacing a projector.

Plasma. Better tonal range. LED TV's are overly contrasty.

I have a 37 in Samsung model 5000 led. after setting as extended desktop, matching frame rate and Resolution, the easy part. then I spent the better part of a day setting a ton of color settings to match desktop. looks awesome. On a large screen like you want should be awesome. 46 in model 5000 would do it. calibrating this tv will be faster and of couse way easier.
