Panasonic’s 50-inch full HD 3D TV

Panasonic’s full HD 3D TV, the TX-P50VT20, has recently been made available for purchase in the UK. Now, Britons have two alternatives to choose a 3D TV from- Panasonic’s newly launched 3D TV or Samsung’s 3D TV UE40C700, which was rolled out last month.

The TX-P50VT20 comes with onboard Freeview HD and Freesat HD tuners. It is the first company to offer both free-to-air HD broadcast platforms on a single TV.

Panasonic has used its brand new NeoPDP display technology to build the TV. There is a new filter in the screen, the discharge gas is more efficient and phosphors are better. The firm has also altered the core cell structure in the TV.

The TX-P50VT20, which is available for more than 1,200 pounds, features built-in recording, which allows users to record video from TV’s HD tuners onto a USB hard disk drive.

Some of the other striking features of the TV include, 600Hz processor, four HDMIs, photo, video and music playback from both SD cards and USB storage drives. It offers optional WiFi, an Ethernet port that lets wired access to Panasonic’s VieraCast online service.

Panasonic’s 65-inch 3D TV, TX-P65VT20, will be launched later.
