Even before you turn it on, the crystal frame design of the Panasonic TC-L55ET5 55" Smart Viera Full HD 3D LED 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-L55ET5 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 a Polarized 3D Method 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 high speed. 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. And the good news is that Panasonic includes 4 pair of 3D glasses with your TV so you can share the fun with friends and family.
Vivid color was prioritized in the TC-L55ET5's design from the start. Besides 3D, the IPS panel uses a high-speed drive and 360 degree backlight scanning technology to remove flicker and blur while rendering images with striking clarity. Gamers will appreciate the 1,080 lines of moving-picture resolution coupled with Game Mode which optimizes contrast and sharpness and accelerates image processing. And speaking of gaming, downloading games from Viera Connect Market allows you to utilize your tablet or smart phone as a game pad as well as a remote control for browsing the web. And you can do it wirelessly thanks to the TC-L55ET5's built-in WiFi.
If you're short of space, or you just prefer an uncluttered room, you'll appreciate the powerful 20W AV surround system. You can listen to music or view video and photos downloaded from an on-line source or from an SD card or USB drive thanks to the TC-L55ET5's convenient ports. Your TV's wide connectivity also includes 4 HDMI inputs as well as component, composite and optical inputs.
And if you have questions about this incredible entertainment hub, Panasonic has answers. Just press the help button on your included remote control for details as well as FAQs about peripheral devices and operating instructions.
Finally, your TC-L55ET5 is loaded with energy-saving features like auto shut-off and Intelligent Auto Standby that continue to save you money and reduce your carbon footprint long after your purchase.
