Panasonic 55" VIERA Class E50 LED Black Flat Panel HDTV, Model TCL55E50

Features:

Display

  • 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
  • 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

Easy Operation

  • 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
  • Gamepad 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
  • Media Flick

    • * Learn about the setup instructions, main features, FAQs and more information
  • 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 select and display the eHELP from VIERA Tools

Networking

  • 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
  • WiFi Ready
    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 wireless LAN environment is required to use the Wireless LAN Adaptor
    • * The Wireless LAN Adaptor is sold separately
  • 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
    • * Wireless LAN Adaptor is required for home networking
  • 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

  • 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

    • Power Save
      This setting adjusts screen brightness to reduce power consumption
  • C.A.T.S. [Contrast Automatic Tracking System]
