Continuous Evolution: The VIERA Mission!

This year VIERA has evolved even further, pushing the limits of design and technology, redefining the concepts of performance and value.

Australians love sport, and we love watching it on a big screen. No matter what sport you're a fan of, be it Formula 1, Rugby Union, AFL or soccer, detail in fast moving objects is always important. Panasonic Plasmas do not suffer from the blur or lag that affect some big screens and produce "trails" that take away from the viewing experience. Panasonic Plasma TVs have a virtually instantaneous response time that ensures clear viewing for fast moving action. This means that you can follow your team's performance in the comfort of your home with blur-free images and outstanding picture quality. Viera Plasma - Built for Speed.

In scenes that are deep black, it is the subtle expressions of the actors and the moodiness of the scene that captivate the viewer. VIERA renders each image in clear, sharp detail and with a depth that draws us in to the picture. In movie productions, huge sums of money are spent and meticulous care is taken to make the sets, lighting and other visual elements as compelling as possible. Only a television with the remarkable picture performance of VIERA is able to reproduce these carefully crafted images as the director envisioned them. The same superb performance that allows VIERA to unleash all the emotion and beauty of a movie also makes VIERA the best choice for viewing other types of content.

Key Features

  • 1080p Digital Processing Chip-Set
    This chip-set processes the full-HD video signal in its original condition, without down-conversion.

    The full-HD video signal allows the reproduction of highly expressive images with exceptional detail. Used in VIERA, this high-performance chip-set processes the HD signal without altering its natural specifications.

  • 1080p Digital Re-mastering Processor
    Up-converting various video signals into signals with higher image quality.

    This processor up-converts a variety of video signals, such as those from analogue broadcasts and DVD movies, to provide a level of image quality that approaches full-HD. The resulting images have sharper details and more lifelike realism.

  • Contrast Management System
    VIERA achieves superior expressive detail by applying optimal processing to each scene individually.

    Original Panasonic technology optimises the contrast by matching it to the images in each scene. Instead of losing gradation by making part of the image too bright or too dark, this new technology applies just the right amount of contrast correction for each part of the scene. The result brings natural beauty to all parts of the scene.

  • Real Black Creation
    Max.10,000:1 contrast provides crisp images with superb depth.

    Two original Panasonic technologies, the Real Black Drive System and New Deep Black Filter, help achieve exceptionally deep, rich blacks and Max.10,000:1 contrast in dark image areas.

  • Motion Pattern Noise Reduction
    Even scenes with lots of motion are clear and have excellent tonal expression.

    The Motion Pattern Noise Reduction circuit detects motion patterns that tend to generate noise, and makes adjustments to maximize 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.

  • Long Service Life
    Panasonic VIERA boasts a long service life of approximately 60,000 hours.

    By making the panel glass thinner, we were able to increase the light transmission to create a brighter picture with less power. We're also proud to have achieved a VIERA lifetime of about 60,000 hours.

  • Advanced 3D Colour Management
    Colours are reproduced in all their natural vibrancy and beauty. The Colour Management System achieves precise control based on 3D management in the colour difference plane and brightness directions. This finer level of control produces more expressive images.
  • HDAVI Control
    Now you can enjoy the beautiful sounds and pictures of high-quality AV equipment without all the messy, unsightly cables. With HDMI, a single cable carries the video, audio and control signals between two digital components. By using Panasonic HDAVI-Control compatible components, you can turn on the power for your entire home theatre with a single remote control button, and begin playback immediately. Operating your DIGA recorder is easier and smarter too. You can use the same remote controller you use with your home theatre. When you select Play on the DIGA recorder, VIERA's video input automatically switches itself for DIGA playback.

  • Excellent Brightness Even in Living Rooms
    Higher efficiency achieved improving panel materials and enhancing rib and electrode shapes. And Stable, high-speed discharge achieved to cope with the finely controlled discharge light intensity. These features combine to increase brightness.

  • New Deep Black Filter
    We reduced this filter's light transmittance, so you can enjoy clean, beautiful images with deeper, richer blacks. We also applied an original Panasonic anti-glare process to the filter surface, to suppress external glare and reflection.

  • Sub-Pixel Controller
    VIERA delivers smooth diagonal lines and sharp, crisp images in scenes with fine detail.

    The Sub-Pixel Controller eliminates 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.

  • Real Gamma Control
    A total of 3,072 equivalent steps of gradation for finely nuanced images.

    Maximum 16-bit video processing makes it possible to reproduce images with 3,072 equivalent steps of gradation. The picture noise and black blocking that occur with insufficient gradation is suppressed even in scenes with intricate detail, fine textures and subtle expressions. Even the most detailed parts of an image are rendered with beautiful smoothness.
