Connect a PC and experience web surfing, gaming, and even DVD playback using a large, crisp, high-resolution display. View Digital Programming Without A Cable Box Panasonic HDTVs with CableCARD slots can accept a small card that allows you to receive standard definition and high definition digital broadcastsâno bulky set-top cable box. Contact your cable company to find out if they offer this service in your area. Receive Over-The-Air HDTV Broadcasts Sports, movies, and original network programming are all available in high definition from many local broadcasters. Receive and view local over-the-air broadcasts on this plasma instunning HDTV clarity using the built-in HDTV tuner1. If your cable company passes through HDTV broadcasts from local broadcasters, you can decode and tune those as well. A Single Cable Carries High-Quality Digital Audio and Video If you have even a moderately complicated home theater setup, you probably have a pile of tangled cables on the floor behind it. Imagine replacing all those cables with a single cable that carries both digital video and audio at the same time. With the new HDMI standard, that’s exactly what you get. The HDMI connector on this TV accepts high-quality digital video and audio via the same thin cable, allowing you to run one cable from the source to the TV. Share Digital Photos On the Big Screen with Photo Viewer The best images you can ever view on a Panasonic plasma don’t have anything to do with HDTV. Share your JPEG photos taken with a Lumix® digital camera on a Panasonic plasma using the built-in SD card slot2. Simply insert the SD card, which is about the size of a postage stamp, into the SD slot on the TV and enjoy a photo slideshow. A Cinema-Style Viewing Experience A Prepare yourself for perfectly flat big-screen excitement with Panasonic’s PT-52LCX65 high-definition television. The 52-inch, liquid-crystal projection set offers a native resolution of 1,280 x 720 and a built-in ATSC (DTV) tuner so you’ll be set to receive free HD broadcasts right out of the box. More pixels translate into less stair-stepping artifacts, so curved and diagonal image edges look smooth and natural.
The set offers a total of 12 separate inputs, including 3 component-video inputs, an HDMI digital video input for a direct-digital connection with a DTV set-top box, and a front-panel PC input capable of VGA, SVGA, or compressed XGA resolution. A handy flash-memory slot is perfect for viewing digital slide shows of your favorite photos right off your digital camera (accepts 8 MB to 1 GB SD Cards).
A built-in CableCARD slot lets you receive standard-definition and high-definition digital broadcasts via a small card–no bulky set-top cable box required. (Contact your cable company to find out if they offer this service.)
The PT-52LCX65 is considerably less bulky than most rear-projection televisions and consumes less energy. Further, LCD displays don’t suffer from misconvergence or flicker, like their CRT counterparts. The Panasonic multimedia display incorporates thin-film transistor (TFT) technology, also known as active matrix, to improve color reproduction, eliminate ghosting, and boost response speed.
The model’s motion-adaptive 3D Y/C comb filter enhances resolution by removing blurred edges between colors and reducing dot crawl (tiny, moving dots of color along a sharp color separation in a vertical line, as in a depiction of a character’s striped T-shirt).
Many TVs force you to cycle through every video input in sequence when you want to change inputs. This can result in pushing the “video” button 5 or 6 times before you reach your desired source. The PT-52LCX65 lets you select video inputs directly so you can jump right to the input you need.
The set’s 100-watt HID (High Intensity Discharge) lamp is easily replaceable, extending the life of the set well beyond the life of a single lamp. The TV’s 2-way stereo speakers are powered by 15 watts per channel, and BBE ViVA HD3D Sound makes sure every program sounds its fullest and liveliest.
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is a lossless, uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface to link the set with any audio/video source (such as a set-top box, DVD player, or AV receiver). HDMI supports standard-definition (SD), enhanced definition (ED), or high-definition (HD) video, plus multi-channel digital audio–all using a single cable. It transmits all ATSC HDTV standards and supports up to 8-channel digital audio, with bandwidth to spare to accommodate future enhancements and requirements.
