When it comes to picture quality, plasma still has the edge.
Experience what others just see. Panasonic's 81 series of Viera televisions has more choice than ever before, with screen sizes ranging from 32 inch to 50 inch.
One of the most obvious benefits of flatscreen technology comes when you look at the screen from the side.
Plasma and LCD Flatscreen Panels offer a natural, distortion-free widescreen image, but without the size and bulk of a traditional 'tube' television. Which means a Plasma flatscreen can be enjoyed just about anywhere or even mounted on the wall like a picture.
When it comes to finding out more about Plasma and LCD, there are a number of myths out there that can be confusing. Here, Panasonic responds to some misconceptions and offers new information.
Size matters when it comes to making a choice. LCD is at its optimum performance up to and including 32", whilst plasma offers optimum performance at 37" and above. Panasonic Viera Plasma TV is currently the UK's No1 best-selling large screen TV.
The energy consumption of both is actually about the same in normal operating conditions. An LCD screen consumption is constant whereas with Plasma it fluctuates according to the brightness of a scene, eg when a scene is predominantly dark , a Plasma will use less energy. All in all the energy efficiency evens out for Plasma and LCD.
Does Flat Panel TV need re-gasing? No. Plasma gases are inert and sealed within tiny cells that are sandwiched between glass plates. There is never any need to re-charge or refill the Plasma.
The life span for both is dependent on viewing habits, but if both are watched for the same duration, one would expect the life span to be approximately the same, 60 000 hours, roughly twice the life span of older CRT technology.
Recent independent European research for Panasonic (the first in Europe into customer preferences for medium to large-screen TVs*) has revealed that after viewing plasma and LCD large screens, 73% rated Plasma as superior.
A majority of two to one rated Plasma as providing the best image quality and 72% felt that the best black quality was created by large Plasma screens. The research replicated the typical viewing conditions found in the home and produced very clear results.
