Product Description

The U50 is the lone non-3D in Panasonic's 2012 HDTV Plasma model line-up. The model features 1080p Full HD resolution, fast-switching phosphors, media player, and 600Hz sub-field drive.

Operate Multiple Systems with Just One Remote Control through VIERA Link

The U50 features VIERA Link, a technology that allows a consumer to operate all VIERA Link compatible AV components using only the TV’S remote control. In addition to operating a VIERA HDTV, video source, and home theater receiver can be connected to a VIERA HDTV and controlled via VIERA Link remote. Users can then watch their child, pet and/or property by installing the camera and networking to the VIERA HDTV via Ethernet cable.

A Large Screen Full HD All-Round Performer: A Suite of Technologies

600Hz Sub-field Drive
Panasonic uses its own unique image-analysis technology. This technology converts the motion in each scene into data; and each framd is virtually displayed in a shorter length of time, to create crisp images.

Game Mode
Games are much more fun when there's no lag in operation. Select "Game Mode" under the picture mode option and VIERA automatically chooses settings that provide the optimal image, so you get super-fast response and no delays. Even dark scenes with delicately rendered details are beautiful and easy to see.

Media Player
Simply insert an SD Memory Card or USB memory stick into the slot to enjoy previously saved photos, video clips and music on VIERA's large screen. You can also add frames and other effects to your photos and videos, and create slide shows complete with background music. A wide variety of formats are supported, so you can listen to PC-based music files and web movies right on your TV.

Skype Communication

An optional Skype Communication camera (TY-CC20W) allows the consumer to communicate with friends and family via a large TV, rather than on a small computer or smart phone screen.  Record an original message and set it as your answering voice message. Callers can record messages onto the SD Memory Card*, while you are away. *Minimum 512MB required

Environmentally Friendly

Panasonic’s commitment to sustainability and producing products that are ecologically sound is evidenced in the 100,000 hour life span of the Plasma Display panel and the lack of lead or mercury in the panels. Thanks to a newly designed phosphor process and rear panel process, Panasonic's plasma panels last for up to 100,000 hours before the brightness decreases by half. That's more than 30 years of viewing 8 hours a day. Plus with Eco Mode, Panasonic TV's turn off and adjust brightness depending on the VIERA's operating status. Settings can be configured by selecting Eco mode from VIERA Tools. The Power Save setting also adjusts screen brightness to reduce power consumption.

Inputs/Outputs : 2x HDMI Audio/Video In (Rear), 1x USB 2.0 Audio/Video In, 1x RCA Composite Video In, 1x RCA Composite Audio In, 1x RCA Component Video In and  1x RCA Component Audio In.
