The awesome Panasonic TH50PZ80B features Vieras V-Real technology for outstanding picture quality. The Advanced 3D colour management system ensures that colour, brightness and luminosity are independently detected to produce the optimal quality in each, resulting in a picture that is bright and beautiful.
Thanks to 100Hz Double Speed motion technology images are smooth and flicker free. Youll also enjoy atmospheric sound from the integral V-Audio sound system and a wide selection of channels thanks to its integrated digital tuner. An SD memory card slot lets you run a photo slideshow for family and friends on the big screen.
This television is high definition ready which means it has the ability to display high definition signals with the addition of a separate HD receiver. HD broadcasts are at a much higher resolution than regular analogue or digital broadcasts and have greatly enhanced picture quality. The level of detail is astonishing with clearer, sharper and more vibrant images.
1080p is the purest form of high definition that a television can display. This leads to a smoother, more film-like image, which will satisfy sports and movie lovers alike. With a 1080p signal, the information that makes up an image is displayed progressively or all at once, rather than in an interlaced fashion.
