The True to Cinema Picture Concept
Panasonic has worked with Hollywood film studios at a laboratory that we have maintained in Hollywood over a long period of time to research image reproduction technologies. These activities have enabled us to accumulate the know-how necessary to faithfully reproduce original movie images on Blu-ray™ Discs. Now, we have applied these advanced 2D technologies directly to 3D movie reproduction, to achieve truly beautiful images with even more lifelike realism, depth and texture.
3D Effect Controller
The 3D Effect Controller lets you moderate the leaping effects of 3D images. It also lets you adjust the amount of depth, so you can view expansive images and enjoy movies with exactly the kind of 3D effects you want.
The 2D-3D Conversion makes it possible to convert images from DVDs and Blu-ray Discs into 3D with natural depth perception. So you can watch your prized DVD movie collection in 3D with real-life depth, for even greater viewing enjoyment.
FULL HD 3D Blu-ray Disc™ Playback
Advanced 2D image technology accumulated over the years at the Panasonic Hollywood Laboratory (PHL) has also been applied to 3D image playback, allowing high quality images to approach original film quality. Lifelike 3D images with dramatic leaping effects and enhanced depth, luster and texture are beautifully reproduced.
The True to Cinema Sound Concept
The Panasonic Blu-ray Disc™ home theater system was developed under the concept of reproducing an ideal cinema-like surround sound environment. Cinema Surround Plus increases the surround sound effect horizontally as with previous systems, and now enhances it vertically as well. The Anti-Distortion Speaker reproduces crisp, clear sounds to achieve True to Cinema sound quality.
Cinema Surround Plus
The Virtual Speakers created by Cinema Surround compensate for the lack of a surround effect to provide natural, smooth surround sound. Starting with the 2011 models, the same number of Virtual Speakers are arranged in the vertical direction as in the horizontal direction. This offers an enhanced surround effect not only horizontally but also vertically, so you can enjoy your favorite movies with a level of dynamic surround sound that you've never before experienced.
Clear Sound Digital Amplifier
The Clear Sound Digital Amplifier analyzes the difference between the input and output audio signals, and makes the necessary adjustments to produce an output signal with the same low distortion as the input signal. This results in sound that is highly faithful to the original sound source.
Built-in Wi-Fi System
A Wi-Fi system is built right into the main unit, so you can enjoy VIERA CASTTM and BD-Live content without having to connect the Blu-ray Disc™ player with a LAN cable or wireless LAN adaptor.
*A wireless LAN environment is required.
ARC (Audio Return Channel)
The home theater system is compatible with the ARC (Audio Return Channel) feature. ARC makes it possible to receive audio signals from the TV, on top of the preexisting HDMI function of sending audio/video signals to the TV with just one cable. This feature simplifies connection by eliminating the audio cable connection between the TV audio output and the main unit's audio input.
* ARC compatible TV is required.
VIERA CAST™ has been further enhanced with CinemaNow and Vudu, which allow you to stream movies. You can also access other content from the special VIERA CAST™ screen. And you can check weather and stock information on other sites.
