A New Structure and Phosphors Boost Luminous Efficiency by About 15%*1
in This Innovative 3D Compatible Plasma Panel
A Level of Contrast That's Among the Industry's Highest
A new plasma panel structure has achieved 5,000,000:1*2 native contrast. From robust blacks to dazzling whites, images are faithfully reproduced with rich gradation and remarkable depth.

*2: The dark room contrast ratio of the panel unit that can be displayed simultaneously on the same screen. Measured in "Dynamic" picture mode using a white signal in a 4% window.
FULL HD Moving-Picture Resolution Speed of 1,200 Pixels/Second*1 (1,080 lines of Moving-Picture Resolution*2)
Fast-switching phosphors have increased motion image display performance to approximately 1.5 times*1 the speed of conventional Panasonic models. Afterglow has also been shortened to approximately 1/3*1 the previous level, so even fast-moving images are displayed with excellent stability and minimal blurring.
*1: This is a new motion-image performance index that was announced by the Advanced PDP Display Development Center Corporation (APDC) on January 27, 2011, as an advanced version of the conventional moving-picture resolution index. It expresses the ability to display motion images in Full-HD resolution based on the speed at which an image moves (the number of pixels that move per second).

Sharp, Clear 3D Images*1
When 3D images are shown on display devices that have a slow panel response, the left-eye and right-eye images often overlap to produce double images. In addition to incorporating fast-switching phosphors, the PF30 Series features original light emission control technology that reduces double images and displays crisp, clear 3D images.

Native Contrast of 5,000,000:1*1
To take maximum advantage of the inherently superior black expression of self-illuminating plasma displays, the newly developed panel allows the PF30 Series to emit light without the use of a pre-discharge. Its high contrast teams up with deeper black reproduction — which forms the basis of image expression — to render rich textures in images with subtle shading and colour differences.

Rich, Expressive Gradation of 6,144 Equivalent Steps
Panasonic plasma displays achieve rich shading with an incredibly accurate 6,144 equivalent steps of gradation in all scenes. These displays deliver richer gradation from brilliant whites to robust blacks, and faithfully reproduce the textural quality of the original video source.
Approx. 110%*1 of the Color Gamut of the HDTV Standard
High-definition broadcasts are based on the HDTV standard, rather than the conventional NTSC/PAL standard. Panasonic plasma displays reproduce a wide color gamut exceeding the entire color range specified in the HDTV standard (ITU-R, BT.709). This results in a natural and faithful color reproduction on a large screen. Digital Color Reality technology also assures images with immaculate details.
*1: Comparison based on color gamut
Dynamic Images Viewed from Any Angle
Panasonic plasma display panels use self-illuminating pixels to provide more vivid color and sharper images that never appear faded, even when viewed at an angle. Panasonic plasma displays deliver high-resolution images without losing the quality of the original video source.
Long Life of up to 100,000 Hours*1
The Panasonic plasma display panel offers a long life of approximately 100,000 hours*1, under normal operating conditions — providing gorgeous HD images for many years.
Long Life for Vertical Installations Too
Panasonic plasma displays can also be set up in a vertical format, allowing for more efficient use of limited space configurations. The long life of approximately 100,000 hours*1 and superb image quality are completely unaffected by vertical installation. When the portrait mode is selected in the initial display settings, the on-screen display rotates 90-degrees for easy reading. The cooling fan control also changes automatically for portrait mode.
*1: Guideline operating hours before the panel brightness is reduced to half when the panel is used to display motion pictures in the Standard mode. Afterimages (burned-in images) and malfunctions are not taken into consideration.
Tough Body with Impact-Resistant Front Glass Panel
The front of the plasma display is covered by a hard glass panel that provides strong resistance to impact and breakage, thereby providing extra assurance against damage when used in busy public spaces. It virtually eliminates any need for additional protective covering.
