Just bought one of these, stunning Panasonic TH50PX600 with cabinet. Thought I'd spread the news about this bargain at Digital Direct!
The site says:
The Panasonic TH-50PX600 is a stunning 50" Viera High Definition Plasma Television with Digital TV tuner, Viera Colour Management System and SD-mpeg4/jpeg playback. This is the ultimate television experience with henced picture quality via panasonic´s v-real technology.
Viera´s V-Real Technology
V-Real is the collective name for Panasonic´s innovative picture-enhancing technologies. Proud to produce Viera´s key devices in-house from processor to driver to panel Panasonic ensures the very best in plasma performance. The V-Real processor processes the raw video signal it receives, outputting an incredibly high-quality signal recognised by the driver.
Crisp and Clear images made possible with V-Real
The PX600 range includes a new digital processing chip-set which processes the HD video signal in its original condition, without down conversion. Meanwhile, the Digital Re-Mastering Processor up-converts standard definition video signals to provide highly expressive images with exceptional detail.
Thanks to V-Real Gamma Control, maximum 11.5 bit video processing makes it possible to reproduce an outstanding 29 billion colours with 3,072 equivalent steps of gradation. The picture noise and black blocking that occur with insufficient gradation is suppressed even in scenes with intimate detail, resulting in rich texture to even the finest movie details.
Bright and beautiful colours made possible with V-Real
Panasonic´s V-Real technology offers vibrancy and richness to blacks and colours. The Advanced 3D Colour Management System achieves precise control based on 3D management in the colour difference plane and brightness directions. Colour, brightness and luminosity are independently detected to produce the optimal quality in each, resulting in reproduction of colours that are bright and beautiful.
Panasonic´s Contrast Management System 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
