The TC-P50C1 brings glorious high definition to your home in a stylish, glossy black bezel. Curl up for your favorite movie with friends and family to enjoy the ultimate viewing experience. Image-enhancing features like 24p playback and Deep Color create vivid, natural images for movie viewing or gaming experience. Two HDMI inputs make way for most high definition components like a Blu-ray player or Play Station 3. A 600Hz sub-field drive smoothes out fast-moving scenes so details will never be lost.

The 50-inch plasma TC-P50C1 draws glances when neighbors visit. It’s gorgeous, but it’s not just a hunk of fine-looking flat panel. It’s loaded with intelligent technologies. Take the 600Hz sub-field drive, for instance. This technology produces razor-sharp images, even in high-speed chase scenes. Thoughtful additions like the pixel orbiter - an anti-image retention device, an Anti-Reflective panel, and an ENERGY STAR qualification add up to explain the impressive 100,000-hour panel life span.

The best images viewed on a Panasonic plasma don’t have anything to do with HDTV. JPEG photos can be shared and viewed on the TC-P50C1 through the set’s SD card slot. 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.

When talking about convenience, Panasonic’s VIERA Link obviously can never be omitted. You can operate (through HDMI connections) all your home theater components by pressing one button on the TV remote. An HDMI cable carries not only digital video and audio signals, but control signals too.

Films are recorded at 24 frames per second. Unfortunately, most television content is recorded at 30fps, so most televisions are designed to display motion pictures at this speed. Until now, the solution has been to interpolate, or add, artificial scenes into 24fps content in order to stretch it to fit a TV’s 30fps capability.

Recent demands on the part of movie lovers for an authentic home-cinema experience have lead to technological advancements making a 24fps experience possible at home. High definition video like that recorded onto Blu-ray Disc contains 24p (or, progressive-scan 24fps video content) that brings true film into your home.  While true 24fps film makes it from Hollywood to your Blu-ray player, just like a movie-house feature film, it needs a screen to be enjoyed - a flat panel needs to be able to display 24p content. The TCP42U1 with 24p playback does just this. This technology is fully capable of displaying 24fps video thanks to specific video processing that reproduces film-based images as video content.
