Panasonic Full HD 3D: An All-New Viewing Experience
Imagine a sense of depth so realistic, you feel like you're being pulled into the scene. Imagine textures so natural-looking, you can almost touch them. It's all possible with Panasonic's new full HD 3D-ready HDTV, Blu-ray player and 3D Eyewear, now available for purchase in Best Buy stores (not currently available online).
The new 50" class VIERA 1080p 3D-ready HDTV offers unique panel technology that brings a breathtaking level of beauty to both 3D content and the 2D content you currently enjoy. The 600Hz refresh rate delivers an ultra-smooth display of sports and action, while Internet connectivity means you can have instant access to movies, music, news and much more.
The Panasonic full HD 3D experience includes:
Panasonic 3D-ready HDTV
Panasonic 3D Eyewear
Panasonic 3D-ready Blu-ray player
High-speed HDMI cable(s)
A/V receiver with HDMI 3D pass-through technology
(One pair of Eyewear is included with the Panasonic 3D-ready HDTV. Other products sold separately.)
3D content will be somewhat limited initially, but the number of 3D Blu-ray movies and TV channels will continue to grow in the coming years. This summer, for example, ESPN will be launching a dedicated 3D channel and featuring a minimum of 85 events within the first year. DIRECTV, in partnership with Panasonic, will be offering multiple 3D channels this summer (most likely a pay-per-view channel, an on-demand channel and a demo channel featuring sports, music and other content).
If you'd like to see 3D in person, over 250 Best Buy stores will have Panasonic 3D experiences starting March 21. We recommend callingyour local store(s)to see if they'll have a Panasonic display.
