Even before you turn it on, the Panasonic TC-P42ST30 42" Class VIERA ST30 Series 1080p 3D Plasma TV enhances your environment by simply being a beautiful object. It's when you fire it up, however, that it becomes obvious that the TC-P42ST30 is at the frontier of a flat panel breakthrough which turns traditional passive viewing into a completely interactive experience with a radically immersive element: 3D.
Panasonic uses Full HD Frame Sequential technology to create its 3D images. Images recorded in 1920 x 1080 pixels for both the right-eye and the left-eye alternately flash on the screen at the ultra-high rate of 120 frames per second. When you view the screen through active-shutter glasses that open and close each lens in sync with the alternating images, you see breathtaking Full HD 3D pictures with stunning power and realism.
Vividness is the key word in the TC-P42ST30's design. Besides 3D, the 600Hz Subfield Motion technology ensures action with striking clarity while gamers will appreciate the 1,080 lines of moving-picture resolution coupled with Game Mode which optimizes contrast and sharpness and accelerates image processing.
The TC-P42ST30's extensive connectivity has got your media options covered with HDMI (x3), Component, Composite, USB (x2) and an SD Card slot.
Finally, Energy Star qualified ensures that your TV will save you money while it helps preserve the environment.
