Bring video-on-demand (VOD), catch-up TV, games and more to your living room via VIERA Connect. No matter the original source is 3D or 2D, the Panasonic TC-L47ET5 will present them with immersive 3D effect the way just like in theater. To further increase the entertainment, the ET5 series provides the consumer with four HDMI connections, two USB ports, DLNA connectivity and Wi-Fi capability for maximum input/output flexibility.
Delivering 3D Fun to Your Family A polarizing film on the display surface displays the left and right images for each of the odd-numbered and even-numbered horizontal scanning lines. When viewed through polarizing eyewear, different images are shown to the left and right eyes, resulting in the perception of 3D images. This method reduces the vertical resolution to one-half, but it is an easy way to view 3D images using light, economical eyewear. Plus, the unique Panasonic technology converts 2D images into high-quality 3D images in real-time. (When a 2D source is converted to 3D, the 3D effect is slightly less pronounced than with 3D sources.)
3D 24p Cinema Smoother VIERA gives you naturally flowing 24p images with the look and tonal characteristics of film, and familiar TV-like quality. This mode optimizes the number of frames of 24p images recorded from film sources onto media such as the Blu-ray Disc. Panasonic's advanced source analysis and frame generation deliver smooth, natural, lifelike images.
IPS LED LCD panel The IPS panel, which is known for its wide 178°* viewing angle and excellent light transmittance, is now further enhanced with a bright, energy-saving LED backlight. Images do not fade when viewed from any angle, and contrast is higher than in previous IPS models in spite of using less power. The IPS LED LCD TV offers superb color rendering and also contributes to the display's slim design. (*The range at which the contrast ratio is 10:1 or higher)
VIERA Connect VIERA Connect is an internet service for TVs based on the use of cloud servers. It brings you video-on-demand (VOD), catch-up TV, games, educational content, and lots more, through a wide range of apps. It's a great way to relax in your living room with family and friends.
Large-Screen Web Browsing with Your Family The browser supports HTML5 pages, so you can browse the Internet much like you do with a PC. Unlike a PC, though, the large screen allows the whole family or a group of friends to comfortably view a wide variety of content.
Neat and Comfortable Wireless Internet Connection It is easy to connect to the internet or a home network by using the WiFi Built-In function. There is no need for cords or cables, so the layout is flexible and the room stays neat and uncluttered. Using a wireless connection for VIERA Connect and employing the DLNA function make it easy to share photos and movies. (* A wireless LAN environment is required to use the WiFi Built-In function.)
This review is from: Panasonic 47" 1080p LED-LCD 3D HDTV TC-L47ET5
Pros: This TV has exceeded my expectations in many ways! I wanted smart functionality for streaming services and a range video format support. Amaz on Prime, Hulu Plus, Netflix, Youtube, are all present out of the box! Ethernet connected, streaming in HD has been flawless. Native .mp4 .mkv .avi playback.
This a passive 3D TV, the glasses are not powered. The lens are polarized so each eye sees 540x1920 px per frame. That might not sound to good, but your brain puts the image back together in fine form! It looks great, the glasses are light and you get 4 pairs. Also, any 2D video source can be turned into 3D with some algorithmic trickery! Its a more subtle effect than a true 3D source, but a nice option. The 120hz rate is butter and looks awesome without the dreaded "soup opera" look. Without any pairing what so ever, the Panasonic remote controls navigation on my PS3! The android app is very slick with DLNA. You can "flick" your content to the TV and it just works. Also, HDMI has ARC!
Cons: Only con I can come up with is that the smart feature user interface is a bit dated. You are presented with a grid of nine boxes. Each box is an app of your choosing. Its really not that bad, but I have seen better interfaces.
Other Thoughts: This TV has exceeded my expectations on many levels. I have years of experience building computers and researching the advancement of audio visual technology. This set is a tight package full of valuable features. Speakers are fine, but who cares. Thin design with a relatively thin bezel. The LED panel has a matte finish so reflections are minimal but I think contrast suffers a bit from it. You'll definitely want to spend some time calibrating the picture to really make this TV shine!
