Picture Quality


Enjoy the Ultimate 3D Experience

Active Shutter Progressive 3D Method

The display alternately shows images for the left and right eyes. The left and right lenses of the eyewear open and close in sync with this display timing to show separate images to the left and right eyes. By repeating this action at high speed, the brain perceives 3D images. And because this method displays FULL HD 3D images just as they are, both eyes receive 3D images in high, full-HD quality.

* 3D Eyewear is required for viewing 3D images.

Panasonic 'FULL HD 3D' is defined as follows:

  • Compatible with 1,080p 3D signal
  • Panel has native resolution of 1,920 x 1,080p display

Smooth Reproduction of Fast Motion

1,920 Backlight Scanning


In addition to increasing the generated frames from 60 to 240 frames per second, backlight control has evolved through area splitting. The backlight's fine blinking reduces afterimages, to produce smooth, fast movements without blurring. Sports scenes, action scenes and other fast-motion images are crisp and clear.


Reproducing Deep, Robust Blacks

Clear Panel Pro


Deep black expression is made possible by a new filter that suppresses external reflections. A new backlight area control technology also divides the display into 16 portions and provides detailed brightness control to produce images with strong contrast. Night skies are crisp with deep shades of black, and the surfaces of nighttime lakes and seas are vibrant and detailed.


Expressive, Lifelike Colors

Vivid Color Creation


The brightness, saturation, contrast and sharpness of colors are finely compensated in each scene. Highly vivid colors are produced with hardly any mutual interference. People's faces are also detected, and skin tones are beautifully corrected to ensure soft, natural complexions*.

* Only for the VT, GT Series of Plasma TVs and WT Series of LCD TVs.


Smooth Reproduction of Web Movies

Web Smoother


The blurring that often happens in web images is eliminated to produce naturally smooth motion.


Easily Convert 2D Images into 3D

2D-3D Conversion


Unique Panasonic technology converts 2D images into high-quality 3D images in real-time. The image depth is analyzed from the compositional, color and brightness data of each scene, to convert 2D images into naturally beautiful 3D images. In addition to ordinary TV programs, this method can be used to convert a variety of 2D images — such as web content, Blu-ray Disc™ media, and photos and movies saved onto SD Memory Cards — into 3D images with a high level of precision.

* When a 2D source is converted to 3D, the 3D effect is slightly less pronounced than with 3D sources.


Naturally Flowing Film Images

3D 24p Cinema Smoother


The system analyzes the frames before and after, and generates and inserts three new frames. By displaying images with 96 frames compared to the 24-frame original source, smooth images are produced without the blurring that is typical of movies.

* These images are for a 60Hz input signal.


Brilliant Images from Every Seat

Wide Viewing Angle


With VIERA's wide 178°* viewing angle, you see clear, vibrant images from every seat in the room. The backlight features a wide transmission aperture that enhances contrast between light and dark and improves response to provide smoother motion images.

* The range at which the contrast ratio is 10:1 or higher.


A New TV Sound Experience

3D Real Sound with 8-Train Speakers

Speaker System

8-Train Speakers

Eight dome-type microspeakers with reflectors deliver wide-ranging, high-quality sound. Only about 8 mm thick, these compact units also contribute to the beauty of the narrow-edge design.

Super Slim Sub-Woofer

The sub-woofer, which is mounted to the rear surface of the panel, delivers robust bass sounds. Its super slim design, with a thickness of only 11 mm, helps to keep the entire display attractively thin.


Sound Lifting Driver

Original Panasonic acoustic-field compensation technology produces highly accurate sound imaging. Matched to human auditory characteristics, the frequency for the bandwidth in which the sound is located is adjusted and the optimal compensation is applied.

Eco


Top Class LCD Energy-Savings

Low Power Consumption for LED LCD TVs


New liquid crystal materials* are employed in the IPS panel, which features a high aperture ratio for greater light transmission. The transmission efficiency is also improved. Power consumption has been cut approximately 25%** by combining this panel with an LED backlight that offers high brightness and power-saving efficiency. This all results in a better picture with less energy consumed.

* Only for the WT and DT Series.

** The rate of power consumption reduction varies depending on the model.


Searching for Waste and Automatically Saving Power
