When Panasonic engineers set out to develop a home-use 3D theatre system, the aim was set to bring exactly the same richness and realism that you see in a 3D cinema, right into the living room. The result was Panasonic FULL HD 3D.


Panasonic Frame Sequential Technology


Panasonic FULL-HD 3D TV Overview

The Full-HD 3D's concept was inspired by Hollywood 3D movie theatre systems. Large capacity of Blu-ray Disc™ and excellent moving image performance of the plasma display finally enabled FULL HD 3D into the real system, in which the highest image quality for each eye will be kept in the most pristine form throughout the system.

The technology in which the left-eye and right-eye 3D images are sent to the viewer is the key to 3D image quality. For this, Panasonic FULL HD 3D uses something called Frame Sequential technology.

First, the plasma display panel, which has a number of inherent advantages for moving picture resolution, was further advanced to allow images for each of the left and right eyes to be alternately reproduced at the rate of 60 frames per second (fps), making a total of 120 fps for both eyes. Viewers watch the images through high-precision 3D Eyewear, which open and close the left and right shutters in synchronization with the alternating images. As a result, a separate high quality image is sent to each eye. This addresses the image quality problems and blurring that were common to previous 3D systems, and creates sharp, crisp 3D images. 



Panasonic Crosstalk Reduction


Frame Sequential technology shortens the luminescence time for each frame. If the pixel afterglow remains unchanged, the previous image will remain as an afterimage when the next image is produced.

Newly developed fast-decay R and G phosphors reduce the afterimage time to 1/3, to create crisp 3D images with no visible afterimage.


New Fast-Decay Phosphors

Newly developed Fast-Decay Phosphors are used for the red and green phosphors. This reduces the afterimage time to 1/3 that of conventional phosphors while simultaneously expanding the scope of color reproduction. As a result, brighter, sharper images are produced for both 2D and 3D content.


New Unipher Image Processor

The improved processing capabilities of this new engine make it an excellent match for the Frame Sequential technology used in FULL HD 3D. Its vibrant color reproduction faithfully renders the original quality of each 3D image.

Panasonic's unique technologies (PHL Reference Chroma Processor Plus and Adaptive High Precision 4:4:4) also reproduce colors and details with even the slightest nuances, textures, and atmosphere of full-HD movies in 1080p - just as the filmmakers intended.


Precision Active Shutter Eyewear Control


Highly precise timing control for the opening and closing of the shutters minimizes unwanted light leakage to enable clear 3D viewing.

The remarkable beauty of the FULL HD 3D images is further ensured by employing a totally Panasonic system - both VIERA 3D TV and 3D Eyewear - to achieve precisely linked operation.
