600Hz technology lets you view superb motion images. For even greater clarity with motion images, Panasonic uses its own unique image-analysis technology. This technology converts the motion in each scene into data. And each frame is practically displayed for a shorter length of time than in previous systems, to reduce aftereffects. *When using Cinema mode
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.
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. Simply insert an SD Memory Card into VIERA to display photos and full-HD videos on the large screen. You can also enjoy special background music, slideshow frames and transition effects.
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 Link allows the interlinked operation of various AV devices using only the VIERA remote control, by simply connecting the devices to each other by an HDMI cable.
The VIERA U30 Plasma TV series includes a DVB-T2 tuner for Freeview HD providing you with a convenient, subscription free way of watching HD contents like sport, as well as your favourite soaps, dramas and documentaries in full HD glory wherever you are in the UK (Please ensure that Freeview HD coverage is available in your local area before using this TV).
Thanks to the Tough Panel on many VIERA Plasma TVs, you do not need to worry about serious screen damage. That is because the front sheet of glass on the TV is resistant to impacts of up to four joules, which is particularly reassuring for families with small children and gamers who use motion controllers.
A VIERA TV uses up to 55% less power* in darkly lit conditions. This is thanks to the Eco Mode, which is standard on most models. It uses a photo sensor to measure the ambient light in the room, then adjusts the panel’s brightness accordingly. * According to the VDE measurement 2008. Based on the 42-inch VIERA Plasma TV TH-42PZ80.
VIERA Plasma TVs are designed to provide a panel life of up to 100,000 hours, giving you up to 35 years of great entertainment. A panel life time of up to 60,000 hours can be achieved by Panasonic VIERA LCD TVs.
