With the TC-L42D30 42" Class VIERA 1080p LED TV, 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 three 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.
