Panasonic has introduced the lower priced Full HD VIERA GT25 Series 1080p Plasma HDTVs in 42-inch and 50-inch models.
- The TC-P42GT25 42-inch class (41.6″ measured diagonally) will have an MSRP of $1,699.95
- The TC-P50GT25 50-inch class (49.9″ measured diagonally) will have an MSRP of $2,099.95
Both models will be available in late August 2010. Active Shutter 3D Eyewear required for viewing 3D content is sold separately.
The VIERA® GT25 Series includes many of the same features found on the VIERA VT25 models including Panasonic's proprietary IPTV functionality, VIERA CAST which features USB connectivity, allowing for the addition of a wireless LAN adaptor, keyboard and USB memory. VIERA CAST now includes such favorite entertainment sites as Amazon Video-on-Demand, Netflix, Google's YouTube, Picasa Web Album, Bloomberg, Pandora, Twitter and a weather service, as well as Skype (TY-CC10W camera required, sold separately) on VIERA TVs. With ease of use as a major focus, VIERA CAST's interface implements quick keyword input (like a cell phone) to help retrieve favorite content faster and easier.
Another prominent feature of the GT25 series that is also found in the VT25 series is VIERA Link, which allows Panasonic owners to control their VIERA Link compatible audio and video products with just one remote. This feature also affords the consumer the opportunity to add a network camera to the mix. And THX® Certified Display certification insures that every Panasonic Full HD (1920×1080) 3D TV displays motion pictures and television content with the quality and color palette that the director intended.
Like its VT25 counterpart, the GT25 series also features 600Hz Sub-field Drive; 1080p Full HD resolution; 1080 lines of moving picture resolution; VIERA Image Viewer (for viewing of digital still images), 24p Cinematic Playback and new fast switching phosphors.
The GT25 Series also includes 2D to 3D conversion which can convert a 2D image or video to 3D. All Panasonic VIERA® Full HD 3D TV models are also Full HD TVs that display pristine 1080p content in two dimensions (2D) for conventional HD viewing.
