HD Plasma TV with 100Hz Double Scan, 2 mil:1 Contrast and VIERA Image Viewer
A plasma display that is driven at 50 Hz causes an annoying flicker due to a shortage in the number of pictures displayed per second. 100Hz Double Scan displays each picture twice. By changing the 50-Hz image signals to 100 Hz it reduces flicker, and produces images that are more natural and gentler on the eyes.
VIERA incorporates an improved panel production process and the new Real Black Drive system. A pre-discharge control system, the Real Black Drive system achieves next-generation black reproduction. When you’re watching movies, VIERA renders images just the way the director intended, even in scenes where it’s difficult to achieve a proper balance of light and dark.
It’s easy to view HD images with the SD card slot. Watch and show your photos and motion images right after you take them. Simply insert an SD Memory Card into VIERA to display photos and videos on the large screen. An easy-to-see, easy-to-use thumbnail display has also been added. You can select special background music, slideshow frames and transition effects from the setup menu.
In Game Mode, quicker image response increases the enjoyment of video games when a game console is connected to the TV. What’s more, VIERA produces the dark images in video games more clearly. This mode works with the anti-image retention (wobbling) function, too.
VIERA Link allows the interlinked operation of various AV devices using only the VIERA remote control, by simply connecting the devices to each other by an HDMI cable. VIERA Link performance has been further enhanced with LUMIX digital camera connection. By connecting a new LUMIX camera that has an HDMI output terminal to VIERA, you can use the VIERA remote to control the playback of images stored on the camera.
