3D and Amazing Picture Quality
The True to Cinema Picture Concept
3D from the heart of Hollywood - Since 1992, Panasonic has maintained a close working relationship with the top Hollywood film studios, establishing Panasonic Hollywood Laboratory on the site of Universal Studios. This close liaison has enabled PHL to accumulate the know-how necessary to faithfully reproduce original movie images on Blu-ray discs and has led to the development of the advanced imaging processors and chip-sets used in our range of DVD and Blu-ray players. The results are clear to see in our award winning models that achieve truly beautiful images with even more realism, depth and texture.
Full HD 3D Blu-ray Playback
Full High Definition resolution by 'Frame Sequential' 3D Blu-ray playback - the amazing picture quality of Blu-ray Disc is due to the increased number of pixels in each frame of the image. Full High Definition requires 1920 x 1080 pixels (that's about 5x more resolution than DVD) and exactly matches the resolution of Full HD TVs. However, 3D movies display twice as many frames as 2D due to the slightly different information contained in the right eye and left eye images. Only Blu-ray 3D discs can store Full HD for the left eye and Full HD for the right eye and deliver them alternately to the screen in rapid sequential frames. This means that none of the stunning resolution and depth of Full HD is lost when watching 3D.
2D to 3D Conversion
Watch 2D videos in 3D, even movies streamed "On Demand" - Of course it's going to take time to build your collection of 3D movies. So Panasonic offer 2D-3D Conversion that enables conversion of regular 2D DVDs and Blu-ray Discs into 3D images with natural depth perception. Watch your prized DVD movie collection in 3D for even greater viewing enjoyment. New for 2012, models can also convert content from the on-line VIERA Connect services, including Video-on-Demand, into 3D.
Full HD Upsampling with New Super Resolution Processor (New P4HD)
Get sharper, clearer images from standard definition discs. Full HD Up Sampling allows standard definition movies on DVD discs to approach Full HD quality. Using Panasonic's PHL developed image processor, the picture is intelligently analysed to optimise the processing of each pixel resulting in an improved picture quality that breathes new life into your DVD collection.
Smart TV and Networking

Enjoy Music, Video or Photo contents stored on your PC in another room - The Digital Living Network Alliance was set up by a number of software and hardware manufacturers to enable products to communicate with one another in a home network.
