With the TC-L42E30 42" LED HDTV, Panasonic joins the growing number of manufacturers touting LED as tomorrow's technology available today. The vivid contrast, low operating cost, slim design and environmentally friendly attributes of LEDs are well known but recent strides in backlighting technology backed by decreasing cost have made these TVs increasingly popular. The magic starts with the IPS (In Plane Switching) Panel which provides optimal quality even when viewed off axis. Videophiles will be able to have all the benefits of the movie theater at home with 24p Cinematic Playback, which recreates the look of movies, shot for the theater screen at 24 frames-per-second.
Convenience features include two USB ports for viewing media directly from a memory card, and VIERA Link which allows you to control all of your compatible devices from a single remote instead of a basket full of them.
Lastly, connect a DLNA-compatible VIERA and DLNA-compatible AV equipment to your home network, and you can watch movies, listen to music, and view photos from any room in the house. Let's not forget VIERA's Wi-Fi capability gives you even more layout flexibility.
- Wide Viewing Angle
- With VIERA's wide 178° viewing angle, you see clear, vibrant images from every seat in the room. The backlight features a wide transmission aperture that enhances contrast between light and dark and improves response to provide smoother motion images
- 120Hz Motion Picture Pro 4
- Even fast-moving scenes are displayed sharply and clearly. With a 60Hz video signal input, 120Hz Motion Picture Pro 4 makes 120 frames/second from 60 frames/second. This increases the frame count to allow natural frame-to-frame transitions, for smooth motion images with high resolution. Motion Focus Technology also reduces flicker and effectively suppresses blurring and afterimages
- Brilliant Luminance and Superb Blacks
- By combining the highly light-transmissive IPS Panel and high-brightness LED backlight, Panasonic has attained both high contrast and low power consumption. Also, by detecting the contrasting parts of the scene, the backlight is adjusted to maintain a brightness that is optimal for each area. Deep blacks are reproduced with no fading. The contrast between the brilliance of diamond-like stars and the deep black of the night sky produces a sharp, crisp image
