Panasonic 3D TV Hits the UK
Panasonic have entered the fray with this massive 50 inch flat screen P50VT20B 3D Plasma Television. Although it may not be the first 3D TV to go on sale in the UK, it is by far the most attractive of the 3D models on sale.
The first noticeable aspect about this television is probably that it’s a plasma model. Though LCD TVs have of late gotten the upper hand on their plasma rival, the technology is not at all substandard. In fact, Panasonic point to a number of advantages with using a 3D plasma TV over a 3D LCD Television. These include super clear images for any fast motion, improved luminance efficiency, cross talk reduction, and, evidently, better quality when viewing ordinary 2D content as well.
Unfortunately, no discussion about 3D televisions could be complete without talking about the dreaded glasses. The P50VT20B uses active 3D goggles, which means they’ll cost a lot (in the £100 range). Fortunately two are included by default, so you won’t have to immediately purchase more like with some Samsung 3D TV models. They also look quite stylish, resembling a new pair of designer sunglasses, in contrast to some of the very dorky pairs we’ve seen through the years.
