Panasonic 42" VIERA Class ET5 3D LED Black Flat Panel HDTV, Model TCL42ET5

Features:

  • Polarized 3D Method
    A polarizing film on the display surface displays the left and right images for each of the odd-numbered and even-numbered horizontal scanning lines. When viewed through polarizing eyewear, different images are shown to the left and right eYes, resulting in the perception of 3D images. This method reduces the vertical resolution to one-half, but it is an easy way to view 3D images using light, economical eyewear. Great for watching with a group of people
  • Vivid Color Creation
    The brightness, saturation, contrast and sharpness of colors are finely compensated in each scene. Highly vivid colors are produced with hardly any mutual interference. People's faces are also detected, and skin tones are beautifully corrected to ensure soft, natural complexions
    • Only for the VT, GT Series of Plasma TVs and WT Series of LCD TVs
  • 2D-3D Conversion
    Unique Panasonic technology converts 2D images into high-quality 3D images in real-time. The image depth is analyzed from the compositional, color and brightness data of each scene, to convert 2D images into naturally beautiful 3D images. In addition to ordinary TV programs, this method can be used to convert a variety of 2D images — such as web content, Blu-ray Disc™ media, and photos and movies saved onto SD Memory Cards — into 3D images with a high level of precision
    • When a 2D source is converted to 3D, the 3D effect is slightly less pronounced than with 3D sources
  • 3D 24p Cinema Smoother
    The system analyzes the frames before and after, and generates and inserts three new frames. By displaying images with 96 frames compared to the 24-frame original source, smooth images are produced without the blurring that is typical of movies
    • These images are for a 60Hz input signal
  • Wide Viewing Angle
    With VIERA's wide 178° viewing angle, you see clear, vibrant images from every seat in the room. The backlight features a wide transmission aperture that enhances contrast between light and dark and improves response to provide smoother motion images
    • The range at which the contrast ratio is 10:1 or higher
  • VIERA remote App Support: Smartphone Remote
    VIERA remote App lets you use a smartphone or tablet device as a remote control. Tap and flick-based commands are intuitive. Text input is easy, too, with familiar keyboard operation. These handy devices also make great gamepads
  • Free Point Operation
    More intuitive free-point operation for web browsing, by using the touch screen as a touchpad
  • Game Pad Operation
    Gamepad operation for VIERA Connect game applications which can be enjoyed on the large screen
    • Gamepad operations can be used only for games downloaded from the VIERA Connect Market to SD Card
  • Browser Linkage
    You can display the same web pages on VIERA and smartphone with easy operation
  • Media Flick
    Enjoy photos, music and movies on VIERA and smartphone anytime
  • Simple Remote Control
    This remote features easy-to-see characters and an easy-to-understand button layout. It lets everyone in the house operate VIERA quickly and easily
  • Product Support Center
    Frequently asked questions (FAQ) about connecting peripheral devices and operating methods are explained using movies. They are easy for everyone, young or old, to understand. A video guide can be accessed from VIERA Connect
    • Requires the downloading of a free app from VIERA Connect Market
  • eHELP
    No more need to search through the User's Manual. Now you can find out how to operate and connect devices right on your TV screen. Just press the HELP button on the remote control to display the eHELP
  • VIERA Connect
    VIERA Connect is an internet service for TVs based on the use of cloud servers. It brings you video-on-demand (VOD), catch-up TV, games, educational content, and lots more, through a wide range of apps. It's a great way to relax in your living room with family and friends
  • Web Browser
    The browser supports HTML5 pages, so you can browse the Internet much like you do with a PC. Unlike a PC, though, the large screen allows the whole family or a group of friends to comfortably view a wide variety of content
  • WiFi Built-In
    It is easy to connect to the internet or a home network by using the WiFi Built-In function. 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 wireless LAN environment is required to use the WiFi Built-In function
  • DLNA
    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
  • Game Mode
    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
  • Media Player
    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
    • Applicable formats vary depending on the model
  • VIERA Link™
    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
  • Eco Mode
    This mode automatically turns the power off and adjusts the brightness depending on VIERA's operating status. Settings can be configured by selecting Eco mode from VIERA Tools
    • No Signal for 10 Minutes or No Activity for 3 Hours
      This setting automatically turns the power off when there's no image signal for 10 minutes or more, or when there's no activity for 3 hours or more
    • Power Save
      This setting adjusts screen brightness to reduce power consumption
    • C.A.T.S. [Contrast Automatic Tracking System]
      This detects the brightness of the room and automatically adjusts screen brightness accordingly. When the room darkens, it lowers the screen brightness and adjusts the image quality for easier viewing while suppressing power consumption
    • Power Saving Functions in VIERA Link™
      The power of each connected device is adjusted depending on usage to reduce wasteful usage
    • Standby Power Save
      When VIERA is turned off, the power consumption of connected devices is minimized
      • VIERA models for 2009 or above, and video products for 2009 or above compatible with Power Save or Quick Start
      • The power consumption value differs depending on the discs used in connected devices and the usage conditions
    • Intelligent Auto Standby
      Power consumption is minimized by using VIERA Link™ control for interconnected devices
      • VIERA models for 2009 or above, and video products for 2009 or above compatible with Power Save or Quick Start.
  • Crystal Frame
    The slim screen is surrounded by a delicately colored bezel and transparent, crystal-like frame to produce VIERA's unique floating appearance

        This is our 3rd Panasonic but out 1st LED TV. Purchased this 3D version for best picture quality. 2D to 3D works but 3D is probably something I would use infrequently. This set works great in our bedroom. Very little motion blur (football). Wi-Fi pereforms extremely well. Easy to set up and great to watch. Sound is acceptable but a sound bar would be better.
