Description of Panasonic Smart Viera Plasma 42 Inch THP42X50
600Hz Sub-field Drive
Panasonic uses its own unique image-analysis technology. This technology converts the motion in each scene into data, and each frame is virtually displayed in a shorter length of time, to create crisp images.
Viewing Angle Free
Self-illuminating plasma displays can be viewed from anywhere in the living room without any colour fading, so images are always clear and beautiful. Each pixel appears exactly the same, so there is no difference in colours even when viewed from an angle.
Produces a depth-sound-image effect by early-reflection data based on actual room measurement, that is generated from the digital signal processor.
It is easy to connect to the internet or a home network by using the Wireless LAN Adapter. There is no need for cords or cables, so the layout is flexible and the room stays neat and uncluttered. Using a wireless connection for VIERA Connect and employing the DLNA function make it easy to share photos and movies.
A DLNA-compatible VIERA makes network connection super easy. It makes content easy to share by linking equipment over a home network. Enjoy photos, movies, music and more in the living room, bedroom, or any room in the house.
Games are much more fun when there's no lag in operation. VIERA automatically chooses settings that provide the optimal image, so you get super-fast response and no delays. Even dark scenes with delicately rendered details are beautiful and easy to see. Game mode makes all of the game apps on VIERA Connect even more fun to play.
Simply insert an SD Memory Card or USB memory stick into the slot to enjoy previously saved photos, video clips and music on VIERA's large screen. You can also add frames and other effects to your photos and videos, and create slide shows complete with background music. A wide variety of formats are supported, so you can listen to PC-based music files and web movies right on your TV.
VIERA Link interlinks the operation of various AV devices, so you can operate them all using only the VIERA remote. Setup is easy, too - simply connect the devices to each other via HDMI cables.
VIERA saves energy while it is in use. Depending on the usage environment and status, it detects wasteful use and automatically adjusts itself. In addition to its own TV functions, it also controls peripheral devices for smarter, finer energy-saving control.
Power Off Link
When VIERA's power is turned off, the power of connected devices is turned off at the same time. This reduces wasteful standby power consumption.
A group of energy-saving functions can be set with a single operation.
