FULL HD signals for each eye — Frame Sequential Technology
The technology in which the left-eye and right-eye 3D images are sent to the viewer is the key to 3D image quality. For this, FULL HD 3D uses something called the Frame Sequential technology. The left and right images are alternately displayed at high speed (60 frames per second for each eye x 2 = 120 frames per second*). When viewed with special glasses that open and close shutters in sync with the displayed frames, the brain creates the sensation of depth from the visual disparity to form 3D images.
*The frame rate varies depending on the 3D image signal being reproduced. For example, 3D images are reproduced at 120 fps (frames per second) for a 60 Hz input signal, and 100 fps for a 50 Hz input signal.
•Included with each VX200 Series is one pair of 3D Eyewear necessary to view the 3D content. To share this experience with others, additional 3D Eyewear may be purchased separately.
•Someone in authority should responsibly convey the precautions for use of the 3D Eyewear to the user.
•In the event that you experience dizziness, nausea, or other discomfort while viewing 3D images discontinue use and rest your eyes.
•Parents/guardians should monitor children's viewing habits to avoid their prolonged use without rest periods.
•Use only the 3D Eyewear recommended for the VX200 Series.
Ultra-high-speed drive technology achieves clear 3D with minimal double image
3D images require a display speed of 120 frames per second (fps), which is twice the ordinary speed. A panel with slow response simply cannot keep up with the necessary image processing. As a result, a double image will appear when the images for the left and right eyes overlap on the screen (also called crosstalk). In addition to new short-decay-time phosphors that reduce the afterglow time to 1/3, and a new luminous control, high-precision Motion Vector Prediction function on the VX200 Series helps to achieve highly precise illumination. Ultra-high speed drive technology, which shortens the luminous time to 1/4 compared to previous models, also minimizes double image even on large screens to produce clear and detailed 3D images.
High-Speed Illumination achieved with high-precision Motion Vector Prediction
The VX200 Series features the world's first* high-precision Motion Vector Prediction function. Its precise luminous control predicts front/back movement as well as left/right and diagonal movement to increase the drive speed and produce clear 3D images even on a large screen.

3D 24p Smooth Film enhances 3D image depth
In order to show smooth 24-fps images, like those in film-based movies, the same images must be repeatedly alternated two or three times. However, because this sequence differs from natural vision, it was previously impossible to achieve complete smoothness. This is enhanced by the 24p Smooth Film function, which predicts movements and creates new frames between the original frames to achieve smoother 2D image reproduction. The technology is also applied to 3D images. New frames are created between the original frames for both left and right eyes, to produce exceptional three-dimensional depth.
High-precision 3D Eyewear control technology
Highly precise timing control for the opening and closing of the shutters minimizes unwanted light leakage to enable clear 3D viewing. The remarkable beauty of the FULL HD 3D images is further ensured by employing only Panasonic components — both 3D plasma display and 3D Eyewear — to achieve precisely linked operation.
