Picture Quality


* The TV photos used in these illustrations may differ from the actual models being described.

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*.

Naturally Flowing Film Images

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clear picture I bought this tv because price was excellent. When I hooked it up the picture was so clear. I just wish I can get an inexpensive dongle to operate internet. Other than that Im so satisfied. Thank you Panasonic for a well put together LED tv.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! I ordered this TV and I had it in my home 4 days later! Great picture and easy to use. Very nice value for the money, Panasonic makes the best plasma TV's in the industry and I believe that this LED set is the beginning of them dominating the LED segment as well! I have made several purchases from Panasonic Direct over the years (on the web and over the phone). Sales and support staff are native english speaking individuals with the proper knowledge to help you decide on your purchase or assist technical difficulties.
