Panasonic's VIERA NeoPDP plasma televisions feature breakthrough technology to bring deeper blacks and sharper pictures
NeoPDP - Continuing to Redefine Plasma Technology
Panasonic's VIERA NeoPDP is a breakthrough in plasma technology, featuring a range of innovations that bring every detail of life. The power behind NeoPDP is larger cell surfaces and improved phosphor mixtures of the display panel which ensure bright, true-to-life colours. What’s more, the cell’s pilot light has been minimised to achieve deeper blacks and higher contrast, while new & refined image processors bring out the very best of this ground breaking panel technology.
VIERA incorporates an improved panel production process and the new Real Black Drive system. A pre-discharge control system, the Real Black Drive system achieves next-generation black reproduction. When you're watching movies, VIERA renders images just the way the director intended, even in scenes where it's difficult to achieve a proper balance of light and dark.
VIERA NeoPDP achieves an outstanding dynamic contrast ratio of over 5,000,000:1 to deliver the deepest black ever. This is especially important to accurately reproduce even subtle differences in the blackness level. Blacks are purer & whites brighter – giving sharper, more lifelike and 3-dimensional pictures.
600Hz Sub-field Drive with Intelligent Frame Creation Pro
To ensure smooth and judder-free pictures, VIERA NeoPDP employs innovative 600Hz Sub-field Drive with Intelligent Frame Creation Pro. This is a Panasonic's unique image-analysis processor that converts the motion in each scene into sub-fields. The sub-fields are then optimised to display fast action scene in Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution with amazingly smooth motion. Each frame is displayed for a shorter length of time than in previous processor - virtually eliminating unsightly smearing & after effects.

THX Certified Display
THX reproduces film images exactly as the film's creators intended them. The overall aim was to improve the experience of cinema-goers and faithfully recreate the audio and visual ambience that filmmakers intended. To receive THX certification, Panasonic's TVs undergo stringent tests to determine whether the exact same brightness and colour are displayed at all screen locations, and whether black levels satisfy standard criteria. VIERA meets the high standards set by the THX Certified Display Program.

View Photos from your SD Card
It's easy to view full-HD images with the SD card slot. Watch and show your photos and motion images right after you take them.

In Game Mode, quicker image response increases the enjoyment of video games when a game console is connected to the TV. What's more, VIERA produces the dark images in video games more clearly. This mode works with the anti-image retention (wobbling) function, too.
VIERA Eco Link
VIERA Link uses the control signals that are transmitted through an HDMI cable for automated functions. Just press the VIERA Link button on the VIERA TV remote to control your entire Panasonic components including Home Cinema Systems, HD camcorder and Lumix digital cameras.
In 2009 the VIERA Link concept has been further developed, providing you even more functions. For example, Eco Link which helps you to save energy by putting all connected Panasonic devices into sleep mode when they are not used.
With VIERA Eco Link, you can connect and control all your Panasonic devices efficiently through your TV, without wasting power
Saving Energy with Eco Mode
As people become more aware about environmental concerns, the power consumption of their electronic products presents itself. To improve on the environmental impact of power consumption, Panasonic has introduced an Eco Mode as standard in most of its VIERA TVs. By activating the Eco Mode, a photo sensor measures the ambient light conditions of the room and the picture settings adjust automatically. As a result, the TV uses less power in darkly-lit conditions without any compromise of the picture quality.
Build to Resist – VIERA Tough Panel
Panasonic VIERA Plasma TVs are protected by a front sheet of glass resistant to impacts of up to four joules. This is particularly reassuring for families with small children who may otherwise inadvertently damage the screen when playing.
Also, the growing success of games consoles using motion controllers has led to an increase in TVs being accidentally struck and damaged by controllers which have slipped out of player’s hands. Thanks to VIERA plasma TVs’ Tough Panel you don’t need to worry. And what’s more, the protective panel makes cleaning easier too, simply wipe with a soft cloth when necessary.
Lower Power Consumption
With the NeoPDP panel, Panasonic has radically lowered the energy consumption of their TVs. NeoPDP televisions only need half as much energy as 2007 models to produce the same amount of brightness, doubling their efficiency. This has been made possible by expert engineers who have employed an improved luminous gas, larger cells and newly created electronic packaging. The result is an improvement in picture quality and eco-friendliness in equal measure.

Long-Life Design - up to 100,000 Hours of Viewing Enjoyment
Because a TV should have as little negative impact on the environment as possible, it must function for many years. That is why Panasonic Plasma TVs have been engineered to deliver an excellent viewing experience for up to an amazingly long 100,000 hours. So if you were to watch TV eight hours a day – that would be 30 years!
Panasonic lead-free Plasma TVs
Flat screen TVs that employ conventional technologies may contain a spot of harmful chemicals such as lead or mercury. These chemicals are then set free when the TV is taken to recycling at the end of its lifecycle. Already in 2006 and as the first manufacturer worldwide, Panasonic has completely eliminated the use of lead and mercury in their flat screen TVs.
