42″ Smart VIERA Plasma TV – with Easy Operation, Timeless Design, Advanced Picture Quality & Networking Capabilities (Energy Efficiency Class C)

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.

This original Panasonic technology detects image movements like the human eye, and optimises the drive accordingly. By achieving instantaneously powerful light emission rather than finely divided emission, it reduces the afterimages that cause blurring. As a result, fast movement is reproduced with excellent clarity.

 Improvements to the panel filter that blocks the entry of external light, and advances in the pre-discharge control that can cause black floating have enabled deeper, jet-black shades. And preventing light loss in the panel cells allows VIERA to portray bright, crisp images at all times. Even in brightly lit living rooms, deep areas within dark scenes and fine textures are rendered with meticulous detail.

In order to enjoy the original image quality of a movie, you need to have a display that portrays the images exactly as the movie’s creators intended. VIERA has cleared the high standards set by the THX Certified Display Program. It reproduces both 2D and 3D images with cinema-like quality. Enjoy beautiful images that are optimal for movies.

 VIERA Connect allows users to enjoy video and music, sports, games, and a variety of other content in addition to the standard movies and TV programmes on a high-quality large-screen TV through the simple operation of a remote control. The cloud-based Internet service also supports interactive services using applicable equipment as well as an Internet-based shopping function that allows such equipment to be purchased straight from the TV.
