Product Description

Product Description

Panasonic TH-50PHD7UY / 50-inch / 1366x768 / Black / Plasma Display The Panasonic TH-50PHD7UY 50-inch plasma dislplay incorporates advanced digital processing technology, including a newly developed MACH Panel, Real Black Drive System, 3D Color Management System, and the New Super Real Gamma System. A host of Panasonic imaging technologies combine to achieve both the industry's highest gradation and outstanding 3,000:1 contrast. Dual Picture, Digital Zoom, multi-screen capability and other advanced functions enhance the usability of this display. The Panasonic TH-50PHD7UY provides pictures with the kind of breathtaking beauty that stirs emotion. Demand is rising for extra-large display screens, and Panasonic has the solution. Our new lineup of displays for professional applications includes a 50-inch plasma model that offers the superior image quality, extensive functions, and extendibility that make Panasonic anindustry leader. The new unit suits any application calling for a super-size display. Use it in a directory in a building lobby, an information board for an airport, train station or other large public facility, or a monitor at event sites. The ultimate in image quality - Expressivity that goes above and beyond previous limits The accuracy and detail our displays provide cannot be adequately expressed by specifications alone. Their overall image quality goes far beyond conventional standards. They provide pictures with the kind of breathtaking beauty tha

A member of Panasonic's seventh-generation Professional Series plasma displays, the 50-inch, widescreen TH-50PHD7UY is ideal for high-performance corporate installations, offering flexible and expandable input options as well as virtuoso features like horizontal/vertical image orientation and multi-screen options to create images as large as 200 inches in diameter (using 16 separate TH-50PHD7UY displays).

The monitor features super-high contrast (up to 3,000:1) and a native pixel count of 1,366 x 768 and can accept image inputs with resolutions of 1080p (24p/24sf), 1080i (50/60), 720p (50/60), 480p/i, and 576 p/i. It supports a range of PC input signals, including resolutions of VGA, SVGA, XGA, SXGA, and UXGA.

The TH-50PHD7UY is a display only, not a television per se, which means you'll need a DTV or cable set-top box fro any television programming you wish to view. It's also as basic as possible, beyond its many core display technologies, so you can tailor it to your application(s) without paying for features (like speakers) which you may well have no use for. The detailed user's manual provides an exhaustive list of optional accessories and their model numbers, from additional terminal (input) boards to assorted wall mounts.

The panel's multi-function slot lets you add or exchange a variety of optional IT networking or audio/video input boards. Further, the display boasts significant improvements over previous Professional Series models in the areas of peak brightness (more then 10 percent higher than earlier generations), displayable colors, and service life.

Onboard picture-improving technologies include Panasonic's Real Black Drive System, a Deep Black filter, a Super Real Gamma System, Adaptive Automatic Gain Control (AGC), Motion Picture Disturbance (MPD) noise reduction, 3D color management, and active I/P (interlace/progressive) conversion.

The newly improved Super Real Gamma System reproduces gradations in brightness steps equivalent to 2,048 shades, with up to 8.58 billion colors to produce astonishing image depth and ultra-subtle nuances in dark scenes. A new Multi-facet Asymmetrical Configuration Hyper-pixel (MACH) panel features a bounded cell structure and new phosphor material that dramatically improves the panel's service life to 60,000 hours while boosting peak brightness and increasing the display's resistance to static-image burn-in to the level of CRT displays. (Panasonic defines service life as the period during which the display's light output is 50 percent or more of its original light output.)

Adaptive Automatic Gain Control (AGC) increases contrast while maintaining a high signal-to-noise ratio; Motion Picture Disturbance detects motion patterns that generate noise and adjusts the image to maximum quality without diminishing the quality of stationary background objects; a 3D Color Management system provides finer independent control and corrects hue, saturation, and brightness; and Active I/P (interlace/progressive) Conversion reduces interlace-to-progressive conversion noise.

The Dual Picture feature combines any 2 audio/video signals and displays them in 3 different modes (2 picture-in-picture and 1 picture-out-picture modes); digital zoom enlarges a portion of an image up to 4 times normal size for full-screen display.

This ultra-thin (3.7-inch) display offers a wide viewing angle of more than 160 degrees, so it's easy to read even if viewers are sitting or standing well off-axis from a front-on view.

The panel is equipped with a host of energy-saving functions, and its Contrast Automatic Tracking System (C.A.T.S.) senses ambient light and adjusts brightness and gradation accordingly. The addition of "menu" and "enter" buttons to the front panel gives you control of onscreen display functions without recourse to using the supplied remote control.

What's in the Box
TV, remote control, remote batteries (2 AA), 2 ferrite cores (small, large), 2 fixing bands, a warranty card, a user's manual, and an AC power cord.

I have been researching plasma screens for about a year before I finally decided on a Panasonic. I was headed towards the consumer model with all the options, (which was a Consumer Reports best buy and the top rated CNET plasma), but then I found this model. It's the professional version with the same screen. It comes with inputs for component, composite, s-video, and PC. You can order other input cards for HMDI or any other input device if you want it. It doesn't have speakers or a tuner, which is okay for me since I have a DVR and I use my surround system. All I needed was a great looking screen and this is it. I shopped around for pricing on all the shopping sites, and there are some shady places that sell opened boxes or reconditioned screens for a "better price". Some try the old bait and switch or try to sell you the massive extended warranty. Panasonic won't honor the warranty from some of these stores too! Beware! The best price from a reputable place is from Tiger Direct. I hadn't ordered from them before, but I figured I'd have Amazon's buyer protection if I needed it. They shipped my order the same day and it arrived six days later via ABF Freight. I had ordered a Peerless SF-660P wall mount for it that arrived the same day, thank goodness! (I got it from the Peerless Industries website, if you're interested.) Everything is perfect and I couldn't be happier with how this screen looks on my wall. It has the best picture of any screen I've looked at. I highly recommend it.

After hanging on my bedroom wall for a half-decade and looking at the current crop of new available displays, I'm not looking to improve this (old) selection..
nothing equals this displays picture.
I picked up a cheap ($100) Magnavox Blu-Ray from WalMart and after my first movie, I don't think being without 1080P is a big loss in the long run, especially after viewing the current offerings..
Maybe when someone comes out with smell-o-vision?

This is by far the best for the highest quality 50" HDTV that you can find. New model 8 replaces this one -- only difference is 1080p, in addition to the 1080i which this model 7 is capable of. I have looked for this size HDTV for 5 years and have found this to be superior to just about everything on the market...the one caveat is that this is just a TV screen (no speakers are included). The optional TV stand works very well if you do not wish to hang the unit. My purchase from Tiger Direct was flawless -- product arrived quickly and in perfect shape.
