Panasonic TC-L42ET5 overview

  • 1Description

Energy Guide Even before you turn it on, the Panasonic TC-L42ET5 42" VIERA 3D LED HDTV provides breathtaking full HD 3D pictures with stunning power and realism. And the good news is that Panasonic includes four pair of 3D glasses with your TV so you can share the fun with friends and family.

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 1080 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 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-L42ET5's built-in Wi-Fi.

Finally, your TC-L42ET5 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.

Crystal Frame
The slim screen is surrounded by a delicately colored bezel and transparent, crystal-like frame to produce VIERA's unique floating appearance.

Power Saving Functions in VIERA Link
The power of each connected device is adjusted depending on usage to reduce wasteful usage
Standby Power Save
When VIERA is turned off, the power consumption of connected devices* is minimized
Intelligent Auto Standby
Power consumption is minimized by using VIERA Link control for interconnected devices
C.A.T.S. [Contrast Automatic Tracking System]
This detects the brightness of the room and automatically adjusts screen brightness accordingly. When the room darkens, it lowers the screen brightness and adjusts the image quality for easier viewing while suppressing power consumption
Power Save
This setting adjusts screen brightness to reduce power consumption
No Signal for 10 Minutes or No Activity for 3 Hours
This setting automatically turns the power off when there's no image signal for 10 minutes or more, or when there's no activity for three hours or more
Eco Mode
This mode automatically turns the power off and adjusts the brightness depending on VIERA's operating status. Settings can be configured by selecting eco mode from VIERA Tools
3D panel: Yes (Polarized)
3D 24p cinema smoother: Yes
2D-3D conversion: Yes
Dedicated 3D eyewear: 4 included
VIERA Link interlinks the operation of various AV devices, so you can operate them all using only the VIERA remote. Setup is easy, too - simply connect the devices to each other via HDMI cables
Media Player
Simply insert an SD memory card or USB memory stick into the slot to enjoy previously saved photos, video clips and music on VIERA's large screen. You can also add frames and other effects to your photos and videos, and create slide shows complete with background music. A wide variety of formats are supported, so you can listen to PC-based music files and Web movies right on your TV
Game Mode
Games are much more fun when there's no lag in operation. VIERA automatically chooses settings that provide the optimal image, so you get super-fast response and no delays. Even dark scenes with delicately rendered details are beautiful and easy to see. Game mode makes all of the game apps on VIERA Connect even more fun to play
A DLNA-compatible VIERA makes network connection super easy. It makes content easy to share by linking equipment over a home network. Enjoy photos, movies, music and more in the living room, bedroom, or any room in the house
Built-In Wi-Fi
It is easy to connect to the Internet or a home network by using the built-in Wi-Fi function. There is no need for cords or cables, so the layout is flexible and the room stays neat and uncluttered. Using a wireless connection for VIERA Connect and employing the DLNA function make it easy to share photos and movies
Polarized 3D Method
A polarizing film on the display surface displays the left and right images for each of the odd-numbered and even-numbered horizontal scanning lines. When viewed through polarizing eyewear, different images are shown to the left and right eyes, resulting in the perception of 3D images. This method reduces the vertical resolution to one-half, but it is an easy way to view 3D images using light, economical eyewear. Great for watching with a group of people
Vivid Color Creation
The brightness, saturation, contrast and sharpness of colors are finely compensated in each scene. Highly vivid colors are produced with hardly any mutual interference. People's faces are also detected, and skin tones are beautifully corrected to ensure soft, natural complexions
2D-3D Conversion
Unique Panasonic technology converts 2D images into high-quality 3D images in real-time. The image depth is analyzed from the compositional, color and brightness data of each scene, to convert 2D images into naturally beautiful 3D images. In addition to ordinary TV programs, this method can be used to convert a variety of 2D images - such as web content, Blu-ray disc media, and photos and movies saved onto SD memory cards - into 3D images with a high level of precision
3D 24p Cinema Smoother
The system analyzes the frames before and after, and generates and inserts three new frames. By displaying images with 96 frames compared to the 24-frame original source, smooth images are produced without the blurring that is typical of movies
Wide Viewing Angle
With VIERA's wide 178° viewing angle, you see clear, vibrant images from every seat in the room. The backlight features a wide transmission aperture that enhances contrast between light and dark and improves response to provide smoother motion images
VIERA Remote App Support: Smartphone Remote
VIERA Remote App lets you use a smartphone or tablet device as a remote control. Tap and flick-based commands are intuitive. Text input is easy, too, with familiar keyboard operation. These handy devices also make great gamepads
