Enter the World of 3D

Be Captivated By NeoPlasma

Panasonic is taking television to the next level with the new VIERA NeoPlasma TV line-up, which delivers brilliant picture quality in Full HD 2D and 3D. Never miss a detail when watching movies, sports or playing the latest games. With NeoPlasma, you can always be sure to get the best picture quality.

600Hz Sub-field Drive
Enjoy crisp &Clear moving pictures thanks to the 600Hz sub-field drive.
Brilliant Motion Clarity with 600Hz Sub-field Drive

The 600Hz sub-field drive in combination with the newly developed Fast Switching Phosphors offers crisp &Clear moving pictures. This unique image-analysis technology converts the motion in each scene into data for faster display of frame images compared to previous 600Hz systems.

The UK broadcast system is sent at the rate of 50 frames per second (50Hz), so every second of watching, 50 pictures are sent to the TV. Each of the 50 frames consists of sub-field images based on the brightness &Tonal characteristics of a picture in a frame.

With VIERA Plasma TV with 600Hz sub-field drive, up to 12 sub-field images per frame are displayed. It is said that the higher the number of subfields the greater the colour is &The smoother the picture is. This is why our 600Hz system delivers rich colour and smooth motion pictures.

*When the Cinema mode is selected.

active shutter glasses
Active shutter glasses help to create stunning FULL HD 3D.
Active Shutter Glasses

When you watch 3D on a TV, even a slight blur can negatively affect the level of immersion. To get the best 3D picture quality possible, Panasonic employs Active Shutter Glasses which are synchronised to the frame sequential driving of the TV. With this technology the viewer enjoys a cinema-like resolution of 1920 x 1080 for each eye. Viewers can then enjoy a gripping 3D experience without resolution and viewing angle deterioration.

Highly precise timing control for the opening &Closing of the shutters minimises unwanted light leakage (minimising shading ratio of over 1/1000) to enable clear 3D viewing. Both shutters on the 3D Eyewear close completely during the short gap between the right &Left plasma signal emission to match the luminescence characteristics of the plasma display.

600Hz Sub-field Drive
Latest screen technology minimises mutual interference from left and right frames. .
Clear 3D Images

New phosphor technology prevents crosstalk in 3D - The use of new fast switching phosphors has significantly reduced the afterglow time. The emission time and process have also been improved to minimise mutual interference of the frames for the left and right-eye images to greatly reduce crosstalk. The resulting 3D images are extremely high in quality.

Deeper Blacks &Higher Contrast

In new VIERA models, contrast and black levels have been significantly improved especially in bright surroundings. Enhancements to the panel and cells help reproduce images with smooth, natural gradation and deep, rich blacks. In movies, the true, deep blacks faithfully convey the intent of the filmmakers, adding power and realism to the viewing experience.

Energy Efficiency

A VIERA TV uses up to 55% less power* in darkly lit conditions. This is thanks to the Eco Mode, which is standard on most models. It uses a photo sensor to measure the ambient light in the room, then adjusts the panel’s brightness accordingly. * According to the VDE measurement 2008. Based on the 42-inch VIERA Plasma TV TH-42PZ80.

VIERA Plasma TVs are designed to provide a panel life of up to 100,000 hours, giving you up to 35 years of great entertainment. A panel life time of up to 60,000 hours can be achieved by Panasonic VIERA LCD TVs.
