Key Features

  • 8th Generation Plasma Panel
    This provides clear, vivid display of the video signal after processing by the VIERA Colour Management System to create gradation equivalent to 8.6 billion colours. The result is deep, rich blacks and beautiful, sharp images with vivid colour even when viewing in bright light. The new G8 Plasma Panel uses a highly efficient discharge gas that illuminates at lower electric power levels, raising maximum brightness by about 10% (SD Panel: 20%) compared with previous models. VIERA now brings remarkably bright pictures with outstanding contrast.

  • Sub-Pixel Control
    The Sub-Pixel Controller reduces jagged or blurred diagonal lines and produces smoother edges. Unlike conventional systems in which the three RGB colours are processed together, this advanced system processes each colour separately for crisper, more natural-looking images.

  • Smart Sound Speaker System
    This superb system brings together technologies created specifically for televisions and hi-fi sound technologies, The compact, ultra-slim speakers - just 16mm wide - deliver the transparent high-frequency sound that define truly superior audio. Bringing the speaker units closer to the front than in previous models also enhances their acoustic clarity. The rounded left and right woofer units are separately driven to produce a rich, robust bass. Despite their small size, these units fill the room with deep, well-balanced bass sounds.

  • SD / PC Card Slots
    SD and PC slots on the front panel make it easy to view still images from a digital camera (or other memory card-equipped device) on VIERA's large, beautiful screen.

  • PC Input
    Equipped with a PC (RGB) signal input terminal, VIERA can connect with a personal computer and serve as a large-screen monitor for surfing the internet. The D-sub 15-pin RGB terminal is set right on the front panel for easy connection of a laptop PC.
  • VIERA Colour Management System
    Newly developed by Panasonic, this panel drive circuit is designed to unleash the full potential of the G8 Plasma Panel. By dramatically boosting digital processing precision, the VIERA Colour Management System helps deliver images optimally suited to the characteristics of the display. The result is superior gradation with the equivalent of 8.6 billion colours, sharp images with outstanding detail, and minimal noise. With the VIERA Colour Management System, you see images so vibrant and deep they will take your breath away.

  • Motion Pattern Noise Reduction
    The motion Pattern Noise Reduction circuit detects motion patterns that tend to generate noise, and make adjustments to maximise image quality. It helps produce clean, sharp images with outstanding gradation, even in scenes with considerable motion. The result is a noticeable improvement in moving picture quality.

  • SD Video (MPEG4)
    Recording/Playback (Recording via Analogue Tuner only).

  • HDMI Input
    VIERA comes with an HDMI terminal, the next-generation standard digital interface that digitally transfers video and audio signals over a single cable. Use an HDMI cable to connect VIERA to an HDMI-compatible DVD player or other device, and you get images with clarity that surpasses those you get with ordinary component video connections.
