SUBANG JAYA: It is official, the 3D HDTV craze is in full swing now with Panasonic being the latest company to hop onto the 3D entertainment bandwagon.
The company recently announced their 65in TH-P65VT20K and 50in TH-P50VT20K Viera Plasma TV models.
Expected to reach our shores in August, these models provide full 1080p resolution to the right and left eyes, thereby giving the viewer the ultimate 3D entertainment experience, Panasonic said.
It has partnered with RealD, a leading 3D technology provider for cinema, home and professional applications, to support its 3D offerings.
The partnership will see RealID supplying its shutter glasses and 3D content, which will be delivered via the stereoscopic RealD Format.
To provide users with an immersive viewing experience, the TVs are equipped with the NeoPDP technologies, which incorporates a range of innovations that are designed to bring every detail to life.
Among others, the TVs employ a 600Hz Sub-field Drive with Intelligent Frame Creation Pro to deliver ultra crisp sports and film action.
They also have a new infinite black filter and an ultra-high dynamic contrast ratio of over 5,000,000:1 that Panasonic said generates the best balance of black and white under bright environments.
That’s not all, both the TH-P65VT20K and TH-P50VT20K also feature the company’s proprietary enhanced Viera Cast, Viera Link and the SD Link functions.
With the Viera Cast, users are able to stream selected multimedia content from the Internet directly via the TV’s Ethernet port.
Two more applications, Skype and Twitter, have been added to its list of supported content channels that includes YouTube, Picasa Web Album, Bloomberg News and The Weather Channel.
Also, the enhanced version now supports USB, enabling users to hook up a wireless LAN adaptor, keyboard or thumbdrive to the TVs for better access when using the Viera Cast function.
Meanwhile, the Viera Link utilises the HDMI-CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) technology to allow users to operate compatible AV components such as a Blu-ray player or home theatre system via the HDTV’s remote control.
Finally the SD Link supports SD cards to allow users to view digital still photos and play AVCHD videos directly on the big screen.
Prices were not available at press time.
