We went eyes-on with Panasonic’s impressive new plasma screen range at CES 2012, and came away gobsmacked by the quality of the VT50 series.
Two different models will be headed to shops; the 55-inch P55VT50 and the 65-inch P65VT50.
Designed using a single sheet of glass and ultra thin bezel, the screens manage great black levels through the company’s “infinite black ultra panel” design.
THX certified, the 3DTVs can also convert 2D images for added depth, as well as smoothing 24p 3D using Panasonic’s new “3D 24p cinema smoother”.
24,576 steps of gradation let colour reproduction shine naturally, gently weaving subtle colour shade changes into pictures, a notable addition considering the problems older plasma panels have with this issue.
