High Grade Audio Parts
High quality sound reproduction
High-precision audio processing by four independent 192 kHz 32-bit audio DACs for 7.1-channel sound ensure minimal noise. Highly durable corrosion-resistant gold-plated terminals maintain the high sound quality. The same high-grade capacitors found in top-class audio components are used for the signal and power supply circuits. The result is substantially less distortion, with smooth high frequencies and deep, rich bass. Insulators suppress housing vibration, greatly reducing noise interference and enabling faithful reproduction even of weak signal nuances that might otherwise be masked by vibration.
FULL HD 3D Blu-ray Disc™ Playback
Reproduction of all image data from
Hollywood 3D movies on discs
The advanced 2D image technologies of the Panasonic Hollywood Laboratory have also been applied to 3D image playback, providing high quality images of the film that is approaching that of film. Lifelike 3D for beautifully reproduced images that leap off the screen with enhanced depth, luster and texture.
Adaptive Chroma Processing
Faithful color reproduction
Adaptive Chroma Processing is a high quality image-processing technology developed to precisely process each pixel of Blu-ray Disc™ video signals in the vertical and horizontal directions. Vertical color data has been increased 1.5 times (compared with 2010 models), allowing Adaptive Chroma Processing to reproduce color data more faithfully than ever before.
Watch 2D images in 3D
2D-3D Conversion enables conversion of 2D images on DVDs and Blu-ray™ Discs into 3D images with natural depth perception. Screen type (flat or round), and frame color are easily selectable.
