The Panasonic Smart Viera 47" Class DT50 Series Full HD 3D LED HDTV is yet another high-end display to ride the mounting tsunami of panels which turn traditional passive viewing into a completely interactive experience with radically immersive 3D technology. Cue up a 3D movie in your Blu-ray player and you're on your way. In fact, even if you don't have 3D content, the TC-L47DT50's
powerful processor can render regular 2D content into simulated 3D on the fly. Just add high-precision 3D eyewear to add a new "dimension" to your favorite classics and 2D programs. You can even view JPEG photo slide shows stored on a thumb drive, SD card or computer in 3D.
The sleek TC-L47DT50 is certainly going to attract attention even before you turn it on. Boasting full HD (1,920 x 1,080) resolution, the IPS Panel with proprietary Infinite Black technology, it starts out with some spectacular specs. But then Panasonic has added feature upon feature to improve an already excellent picture. Its Smart Viera Engine Pro improves the hue, saturation and brightness by precisely honing in on those colors that need correction while leaving others alone.
The TC-L47DT50 also has three USB ports from which it can play programming. With built-in WiFi it's easy to connect to the Internet or a home network without messy wires and cables. Panasonic calls it Viera Connect; you'll call it amazing. Imagine viewing YouTube and Picasa Web Albums on your TV with no PC or external boxes required! The built-in Web menu updates itself automatically as new content becomes available. The addition of Skype makes it possible to talk live to friends all over the world. Best of all you can talk for free as long as you like to anyone who's on Skype.
Finally, Energy Star qualified ensures that your TV will save you money while it helps preserve the environment.
Enjoy the Ultimate 3D Experience Via Active Shutter Progressive 3D Method
