FULL HD 3D Plasma with Infinite Black, 600Hz Sub-field Drive Intelligent Frame Creation Pro and THX Mode

FULL HD 3D makes you feel as if you’d stepped out of your living room and into the world on the screen. The viewing experience has never been so lifelike and compelling.The technology in which the left-eye and right-eye 3D images are sent to the viewer is the key to 3D image quality. For this, FULL HD 3D uses something called the Frame Sequential technology. A separate high quality image is sent to each eye. This addresses the image quality problems and blurring which is common to previous 3D systems, and creates sharp, crisp 3D images.

600Hz Sub-field Drive technology lets you view superb full-HD motion and still images with 1,080 lines of resolution. For even greater clarity with motion images, Panasonic uses its own unique image-analysis technology. This technology converts the motion in each scene into data. And each frame is practically displayed for a shorter length of time than in previous systems, to reduce aftereffects. *When using Cinema mode.

A contrast ratio of 5,000,000:1 enables VIERA to display extremely robust blacks. A new filter, improvements to the cell discharge area, and enhanced cell performance have greatly increased luminous efficiency to produce crisp blacks. And minimising the electrical pre-discharge helps to both raise contrast and save energy.

THX reproduces film images exactly as the film’s creators intended them. The overall aim was to improve the experience of cinema-goers and faithfully recreate the audio and visual ambience that filmmakers intended. To receive THX certification, TVs undergo stringent tests to determine, for example, whether the exact same brightness and colour are displayed at all screen locations, and whether black levels satisfy standard criteria. VIERA meets the high standards set by the THX Certified Display Program.
