Product description

Product description

With a 3000:1 contrast ratio and display of over 8 billion colors, the Panasonic TH-50PX50U offers an astounding widescreen picture that surpasses any LCD TV in this price range. Then Panasonic includes an ATSC tuner (in addition to the standard NTSC analog tuner) that lets you receive over-the-air widescreen HDTV broadcasts, when using an optional HDTV antenna. Got Cable-TV? This model has a slot for a CableCARD that (when used with a participating Cable service) eliminates the need for a cable box. With its native resolution of 1366x768, it's fully ready to display HDTV, in addition to older formats. In addition to composite and component video ports, this model also has an HDMI connector. HDMI is a true digital-optimized connection that delivers exceptional video and audio quality. Using 8th-generation Plasma technology, display performance is nothing short of fantastic. So if you're thinking of getting a widescreen TV for your home, here's a value-oriented TV that's ready, willing, and able to offer dependable pleasure to you. Built-In Tuners - NTSC/ATSC/QAM (SDTV and HDTV Broadcasts) CableCARD Ready Shades of Gradation - 2,048 V-Chip Program Lockout Sleep/On/Off Timers Built-In Closed Caption Decoder Photo Viewer (SD and PC Card Slots) Aspect Control - 4 - 3, Zoom, Full, Just, for TV/AV Modes; Normal, Zoom, Full for PC Mode Headphone Jack for use with optional headphone Video Input Labeling Video Picture Memory Unit Dimensions (H x W x D) - 32 x 50 x 4 / Weight - about 99 lbs Also wall mountable when using an optional wall mount Panasonic USA 1-Year limited warranty coverage.

Greet the day with widescreen, flat-panel excitement from Panasonic's 50-inch TH-50PX50U. The 1,366 x 768-pixel gas-plasma TV offers a 16:9 widescreen dimension to match the aspect ratio of your favorite feature films and an HDMI input for direct-digital connection with high-definition sources. Not that you necessarily need them--the set's built-in ATSC (DTV) tuner pulls HD signals (480p/720p/1080i) right from the airwaves, and its QAM tuner is fully compatible with unscrambled HDTV cable reception. A standard analog NTSC tuner receives standard-definition (SD) programming.

The set's authorized CableCARD port means the set will also receive digital cable television systems services directly from a compatible cable operator without requiring a bulky, external cable box. You'll enjoy plug-and-play convenience wherever you are.

A plasma screen renders vivid colors like you've never seen before (as in, up to 8.85 billion in this case), extremely wide viewing angles (wider, even, than those of most LCD screens), and easy placement due to a plasma monitor's slim profile--the TH-50PX50U is a mere 3.8 inches deep, one of the slimmest plasmas around--perfect for desk or wall mounting. Brightness tends to be extremely uniform across plasma screens, which are also impervious to the picture distortion and negative color balances that afflict CRT monitors when placed near lighting or sound systems. The TH-50PX50U's contrast ratio is rated at an extraordinarily lifelike 3,000:1.

The High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) offers uncompressed digital data transmission between compatible devices, as between the TH-50PX50U and a DTV satellite receiver. Other connections include dual HD component-video inputs, 2 each composite- and S-video inputs, and a set of composite-video-based AV outputs simplifies hookup with an external AV receiver and speaker system.

The TV's internal stereo speakers are powered by 8 watts per channel. Special surround processing creates spacious 3D effects from stereo speakers and a selectable audio leveler automatically adjusts the volume level on your TV to prevent wide variations in sound between different TV stations and types of programming.

Other features include V-Chip Program lockout, on/off sleep timers, a remote control, and closed-caption decoding.
