IPS LED LCD Technology
The IPS panel, which is known for its wide viewing angle and excellent light transmittance, is now further enhanced with a bright, energy-saving LED backlight. Images do not fade when viewed from an angle, and contrast is higher than in previous IPS models in spite of using less power. The IPS LED LCD TV offers superb color rendering and also contributes to the display's slim design.

LED Backlight
This system places LED backlights on the top and bottom of the panel, and sends the light toward the center of the screen. Using light guides and diffusers, it distributes the light over the entire panel to provide backlighting. There is no need to cover the entire rear surface with LEDs, so the panel module is thinner and a great deal of energy is saved.

Dynamic Contrast 2,000,000:1 with IPS LED LCD Technology
Brilliant Luminance and Superb Blacks
Both high contrast and energy-saving efficiency have been achieved in the IPS LED LCD TV by combining the IPS panel, which is known for its wide viewing angle, with a bright, energy-efficient LED backlight. Even dark scenes like night skies are naturally rendered with delicate shades of black. The Intelligent Scene Controller further boosts the image quality.

120Hz Motion Picture Pro 4
Crisp, Clear Moving Pictures
Even fast-moving scenes are displayed sharply and clearly. With a 60Hz video signal input, 120Hz Motion Picture Pro 4 makes 120 frames/second from 60 frames/second. This increases the frame count to allow natural frame-to-frame transitions, for smooth motion images with high resolution. Motion Focus Technology also reduces flicker and effectively suppresses blurring and afterimages.

Universal Dock for iPod
The iPod Entertainment Kit lets you control and playback your iPod music and video directly through your VIERA HD TV.

24p Smooth Film
Smooth Film Images
Enjoy naturally flowing 24p films and familiar TV-like quality. This mode optimizes the number of frames of 24p images recorded from film media such as a Blu-ray Disc. Advanced source analysis and frame generation produce smooth images that are faithful to the original.

Wide Viewing Angle
Beautiful Images from Any Angle
The wide 178 viewing angle ensures clear images even when viewed from an angle. The backlight's wide transmission aperture enhances the contrast between light and dark, and improves motion-image response.

VIERA Image Viewer
Easy viewing of full-HD photos
It's easy to view full-HD images with the SD card slot. Watch and show your photos right after you take them. Simply insert an SD Memory Card into your VIERA HDTV to display photos a on the large screen. It's much more fun when you can view them on a large screen HDTV with family and friends in 1920x1080-pixel high definition and a wide 16:9 aspect ratio.

Operation with a single remote
VIERA Link allows interconnected operation of various AV devices using only the VIERA remote control, by simply connecting compatible devices to each other by an HDMI cable.
