IFA 2010: Panasonic lanch three new 3D TVs and promise immersive gaming


It’s all about 3D for Panasonic’s 2010 IFA line-up and they’re releasing three additions to their glamourous flatscreen VIERA TV range. All show three dimensional images and they’re all are huge – two at 42 inches and one at 46 inches. There’s a pair of LCD screens and then one plasma panel in their current offerings.

LCD models first – the 42″ (42VT20) and 46″ (46VT20) models promise crisp and immersive 3D images and come with two sets of 3D eyewear. Obviously you’ll need to buy a few more if you want a third or fourth person to watch it too. Hard work has gone into a technology which smooths blurring.

Panasonic’s third new 3D TV is a plasma one – the 42inch TX-P42GT20 – offering most of the same features, just with the advantages of a plasma panel. Unlike the other models in the VIERA VT20 series, the TX-P42GT20E does not come with 3D eyewear.

They’ve also updated all their range with their NeoPDP technology – it offers very high visual contrast and speedy response time making it perfect for fast sports scenes, action movies and games.

Panasonic have also taken on board how big 3D will be for the gaming community and have partnered up with game-makers Ubisoft to get some top-quality three dimensional games on their customers’ screens. First up will be Shaun White Skateboarding coming out sometime in December.
