Newly developed professional-quality engine doubles color reproduction
The new Professional-quality engine raises the color processing of each pixel from the conventional* 20-bit level to 30-bit processing. By faithfully reproducing all of the color and luminance signals output by image sources, it produces smooth, vibrant colors across the entire screen.
* PF12 Series.
Digital Cinema Color reproduces cinema-like colors
The color gamut of movies and other Blu-ray Disc™ images is carefully compressed by Hollywood colorists. This is why you don't get the same natural Digital Cinema* colors from Blu-ray Discs on conventional displays as you do on a cinema screen. To overcome this, Panasonic applied the know-how that it has accumulated at its laboratory in Hollywood to create a Color Profile based on color expression technology that was converted into digital data. Using the Color Profile, a process that is the opposite of the color gamut compression designated by the colorist is applied to expand the color gamut. This produces Digital Cinema Color that approaches the colors of a cinema.
*The color gamut used in current digital cinemas, which is also based on demand specifications compiled by major Hollywood movie companies for Digital Cinema standards.
Native contrast of 5,000,000:1* gives you high-quality images with rich textures
A high native contrast of 5,000,000:1* clearly distinguishes light areas from dark areas in the image. Even the tiniest stars in a night sky are strikingly rendered, in images with stunning detail. Textures are meticulously reproduced, right down to fine nuances in brightness and color.
* 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.
8,192 equivalent steps of gradation boost detailed expression
The extremely high performance that makes it possible to display FULL HD 3D images also translates to a remarkably high level of performance when displaying 2D images. The color expression that is achieved by 8,192 equivalent steps of gradation, and the smoothness with which it renders intermediate colors, combine to create tonal nuances that have never before been possible.
Superb motion picture image in sports and action movies
By shortening the display time (called the hold time) for each frame, these displays achieve a high, 1,080 lines of moving-picture resolution.* This clearly shows detailed motion even in fast-action scenes, and lends greater beauty to the high-resolution images that are unique to full-HD displays. Moving-picture resolution is also constant for images that include both slow and fast motion, to produce uniform, finely detailed images.
*According to the method for measuring moving-picture resolution to indicate motion-image display performance that was developed by the Advanced PDP Development Center Corporation (APDC). For 3D images, the left and right images are each measured.
