Panasonic’s ongoing development
of "Plasma Reality Technology" is part of our pursuit of ultimate
reality in image reproduction. Plasma Reality Technology is a synergetic group
of picture-enhancing technologies including the Real Black Drive System, Advanced
Plasma AI, and Real Gamma Correction that lift plasma display image quality
to an entirely new level by dramatically boosting brightness, contrast and
Real Gamma Correction
The Real Gamma Correction
technology has enabled the industry-first reproduction of 1,024 shades of
gradation in a high-definition plasma display. By optimizing the gradation
in each scene, this technology results in far better reproduction of the low-light
portions of the image, a weakness in many conventional plasma displays. Up
to 2,048 shades can be reproduced by using the optional TY-42TM4D DVI Terminal
Board for a DVI digital RGB signal connection.
Real Black Drive System
Conventional plasma displays
tend to illuminate blacks, which lowers the contrast. In Panasonic
display monitor, however, the pre-discharge emission intensity is greatly reduced,
and the number of emissions per field is cut from the usual 12 to 1. This
dramatically reduces black levels and provides deeper, richer blacks. It also
achieves the industry’s highest contrast, with a 3000 : 1 contrast ratio.
Advanced Plasma AI (Adaptive
The Advanced Plasma AI increases
the discharge cycles for dark scenes, and produces extremely precise control
of the brightness level. The result is extremely vivid whites with unprecedented
The 3:2 Pulldown technology
automatically detects a 3:2 film-based source, then uses still-image processing
for each individual image to achieve clear, smooth-flowing images with a level
of detail that closely approaches that of the original film.
* Works with 480i and NTSC
New Asymmetrical Cell
The asymmetrical arrangement
of the red, blue and green cells results in a dramatically improved light-emitting
balance of the three primary colors. This reproduces purer whites while maintaining
a high level of brightness. The use of a new front protection glass filter
and new phosphors also expands the range of color reproduction, resulting
in more vivid blues and deeper reds.
With a native XGA resolution,
the Panasonic TH50PHD5UY plasma display monitor can accurately display personal computer signals
ranging from VGA and SVGA to XGA mode. It can also support compression display
of SXGA and UXGA signals.
Flat Panel Monitor
You can connect component
video inputs to the unit and view digital TV broadcasts in either HDTV (1080i
or 720p), EDTV (480p) or SDTV (480i) formats. The ultra-high resolution of
the Panasonic TH50PHD5U plasma display fully reproduces high-definition pictures from
720p HDTV signals.
* In order to view DTV programming,
the plasma display must be connected to a separate DTV digital receiver.
th50phd5uy plasma display
features a slot-type interface for easy expandability. The slot accepts an
optional DVI terminal board for direct RGB digital signal connection.
Select from a total of three
screen savers to minimize the risk of uneven phosphor aging. The White Bar
Scroll is designed for ordinary still-image displays, Screen Reversal is for
text-screen displays, and Side Panel Adjustment is for 4:3 format images.
All three can be started up in manual mode, or they can be set to automatically
start/stop at preset times in timer mode or for preset periods in interval
mode. To provide phosphor protection for 4:3 format images, all units are
factory set with the Side Panel Adjustment turned ON and the Aspect Control
set to JUST mode.
HD Digital Signage Solution
DVD-Ram/R HD Player iDVR100
The iDVR100 Digital Video
Replay server can be teamed with Panasonic plasma displays to deliver high
definition video for cost-effective presentation systems. The iDVR100 plays
stunning 720p and 1080i HD images plus surround sound. The iDVR100 is networkable
via Ethernet, allowing video content to be distributed to a specific iDVR,
or a group of iDVRs, over an IP network (either public internet or corporate
