4/09/2012 12:01:00 AM Eastern

NEW YORK – Panasonic revealed additional prices
and availability on 2012 Smart Viera plasma and LCD
TVs, during a formal line unveiling for the press here
late last month.

Panasonic said models in the ST50, UT50 and
XT50 plasma series and the E50, ET5, E5 and X5
LED series will be available this month.

Also announced were ship dates on LED LCD
TV models in the 47-inch screen size (available this
month) and 55-inch screen size (available in April and
May).

In total, the 2012 LED LCD model line features 16
SKUs this year, up from seven a year ago.

All new LCD TVs offer LED edge-lighting systems,
and all new LCD and plasma sets feature newly restyled slim-cabinet, slim-bezel designs,
with many models employing a new
“glass and metal” design concept.

Panasonic is also spreading 3D
capability among the new sets and
is advancing its Viera Connect IPTV
platform to, among other things, include
open web browsing in step-up
models.

Select Smart Viera plasma models
employ NeoPlasma Black 2500 Focus
Field Drive technology that is said
to improve clarity in fast moving subjects.
The system produces subtle details
in dark scenes based on 24,576-
step super-fine gradation.

All 3D plasma models include
DLNA connections to network with
PCs and other devices to share digital
entertainment content between similarly
configured devices.

Plasma models in the VT/GT/ST series
feature a 2 million pixel dimming
driver, a new custom driver LSI, a fast
switching phosphor panel and 1080p
3D capability.

2012 Viera TV lineup follows:
