Crisp, Clear Moving Picture: 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.
Clear Images from Any Angle Viewing Angle Free
Self-illuminating plasma displays can be viewed from anywhere in the living room without any color fading, so images are always clear and beautiful. Each pixel appears exactly the same, so there is no difference in colors even when viewed from an angle.
Get More Excitement Out of Gaming with 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.
Play Various Types of Formats Easily 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.
One Remote Controls Them All: 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.
Environment-Friendly Panel: Mercury and Lead Free
Panasonic is committed to making our products more friendly to the environment. In line with this commitment, all VIERA plasma display panels are free of both lead and mercury. This reduces the impact on the environment years down the road when the TV is recycled or retired from use.
Years of Beautiful Images Long Panel Life
One important way consumers can protect the environment is by choosing high-quality products and taking care of them so they last for a long time. A high-quality VIERA HDTV can help. Thanks to a newly designed phosphor process and rear panel process, our plasma panels last for up to 100,000 hours before the brightness decreases by half. That's more than 30 years of viewing 8 hours a day.
Searching for Waste and Automatically Saving Power With Eco Mode
This mode automatically turns the power off and adjusts the brightness depending on VIERA's operating status. 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.
This setting adjusts screen brightness to reduce power consumption.
Adjusts Screen Brightness to Suit the Room 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.
Ecological and Easy 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.
Intelligent Auto Standby
Power consumption is minimized by using VIERA Link™ control for interconnected devices.
