Polarized 3D Method

  • 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; great for watching with a group of people

Vivid Color Creation

  • The brightness, saturation, contrast and sharpness of colors are finely compensated in each scene
  • Highly vivid colors are produced with hardly any mutual interference

2D-3D Conversion

  • Unique Panasonic technology converts 2D images into high-quality 3D images in real-time; the image depth is analyzed from the compositional, color and brightness data of each scene, to convert 2D images into naturally beautiful 3D images
  • In addition to ordinary TV programs, this method can be used to convert a variety of 2D images — such as web content, Blu-ray Disc™ media, and photos and movies saved onto SD Memory Cards — into 3D images with a high level of precision

3D 24p Cinema Smoother

  • The system analyzes the frames before and after, and generates and inserts three new frames; by displaying images with 96 frames compared to the 24-frame original source, smooth images are produced without the blurring that is typical of movies

Wide Viewing Angle

  • With VIERA's wide 178°* viewing angle, you see clear, vibrant images from every seat in the room
  • The backlight features a wide transmission aperture that enhances contrast between light and dark and improves response to provide smoother motion images

VIERA remote App Support: Smartphone Remote

  • VIERA remote App lets you use a smartphone or tablet device as a remote control app and flick-based commands are intuitive
  • Text input is easy, too, with familiar keyboard operation; these handy devices also make great gamepads

Simple Remote Control

  • This remote features easy-to-see characters and an easy-to-understand button layout; it lets everyone in the house operate VIERA quickly and easily


  • No more need to search through the User's Manual; now you can find out how to operate and connect devices right on your TV screen
  • Just press the HELP button on the remote control to display the eHELP

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

C.A.T.S. [Contrast Automatic Tracking System]

  • This detects the brightness of the room and automatically adjusts screen brightness accordingly
  • When the room darkens, it lowers the screen brightness and adjusts the image quality for easier viewing while suppressing power consumption

Eco Mode

  • This mode automatically turns the power off and adjusts the brightness depending on VIERA's operating status
