To say 3D technology is fast warming up to multimedia audiences would actually just put the 3D enthusiasm down. More manufacturers are treading the 3D path now than ever before. Not wanting to be left behind in this race, Panasonic too announces the availability and pricing of its new Viera VT25 Full HD 3D Plasma TVs.
This unveiling is said to expand the company’s 3D offerings to four screen sizes. Encompassing a 50” class (49.9 inches diagonally), the TC-P50VT25 is the first model in the series. Next are the TC-P54VT25 54-inch class (54.1 inches diagonally), the TC-P58VT25 58-inch class (58.0 inches diagonally) and the TC-P65VT25 65-inch class (64.7 inches diagonally).
Fuelled with novel quicker screen phosphors, this line-up marries it with the 600Hz sub-field drive. Quite innovative for an authentic Full 1080p 3D image, the end result is apparently sporadic imagery at 60 frames per second to every eye. Complemented by the required Active Shutter Eyewear, users are offered a true-to-life Full HD 3D image.
Henry Hauser, Vice President, Panasonic Display Group, remarked, “The arrival of our VIERA VT25 Series truly defines the phenomenal capabilities of Panasonic’s Full HD 3D technology to deliver a new level of home entertainment to consumers. With Panasonic Plasma’s new short-stroke phosphor technology, Full HD 3D imagery is delivered in stunning realism and clarity to create a truly immersive viewing experience that will make the viewer feel that they have stepped in to the program they are watching.”
