First was color, then HD. Now get ready for the third wave – Full HD 3D
Tremendous developments have driven TV technologies from the 20th century until today. Among them, color TV and high definition (HD) TV were two major advances. Progress was achieved in recording media as well, from tape to DVD, and then to Blu-ray Disc, with Panasonic constantly leading the way in both TV technologies and recording media. Now, Panasonic presents a third breakthrough in the form of Full HD 3D – and totally redefines image realism – with advanced image technologies that aim to bring more lifelike viewing experiences to us all.
Frame Sequential Technology Full HD Signals for Each Eye
The technology in which the left-eye and right-eye 3D images are sent to the viewer is key to the 3D image quality. For this, Full HD 3D uses something called Frame Sequential technology. First, the plasma display panel, which has a number of inherent advantages for moving picture resolution, was further advanced to allow images for each of the left and right eyes to be alternately reproduced at the rate of 60 frames per second (fps), making a total fps for both eyes. Viewers watch the images through high-precision 3D Eyewear*, which open and close the left and right shutters in synchronization with the alternating images. As a result, a separate 1920 x 1080 full-HD image is sent to each eye. This addresses the image quality problems and blurring that were common to previous 3D systems, and creates sharp, crisp 3D images.
(* Included with each VIERA 3DTV is one pair of 3D Eyewear necessary to view the 3D content. To share this experience with others, additional 3D Eyewear may be purchased separately.)
VIERA CAST Enjoy Online Content on the Big Screen with a Wi-Fi System
VIERA Cast is powered up with Netflix and Amazon Video on Demand which allows you to stream movies. You can also access YouTube, Picasa, and other Internet sites from the special VIERA Cast screen. With the Wi-Fi system, you do not need to use a LAN cable to enjoy this exciting web content.
(*Netflix unlimited membership required. Service on Viera Cast TV will be available summer 2010.)
True to Cinema Picture Quality
Even with large capacity Blu-ray media, the great volume of master movie data cannot fully be saved onto a single disc. Master data must first be compressed to fit to the capacity of a disc, and the key to decode this compressed data faithfully to the original is to know what the master data was. Panasonic has a long history of research in image compression technologies and has authored many of the Blu-ray Disc movies at Panasonic Hollywood Laboratory working together with Holloywood filmmakers with understanding of their intention. By incorporating this accumulated knowledge, Panasonic Blu-ray Disc Players are able to reproduce movies faithful to the original. This provides true-to-cinema picture quality, enabling the reproduction of the nuances, touch, and atmosphere which the filmmakers intended.
PHL Reference Chroma Processor Plus
PHL Reference Chroma Processor Plus is a high quality image-processing technology developed to precisely process each pixel of the Blu-ray Disc video signal in the vertical direction. It reproduces color data with twice the accuracy of conventional systems to keep colors faithful and sharp

New P4HD Enhanced Full HD Upsampling
With the new P4HD Enhanced full HD upsampling, the standard definition movies in DVD also approaches full HD quality. The picture is intelligently analyzed to have the best matching process done on each pixel.
One output can be dedicated to an audio signal output. The twin HDMI gives better sound quality and matches the needs of the users to have the customized theater system with their legacy* audio equipments.

Adaptive High Precision 4:4:4 More Vibrant, Smooth and Truthful Color Reproduction
The DMP-BDT300 reproduces the color signals in horizontal directions with higher resolution. Not only Full-HD movies in 1080p, but concert and documentary films saved in 1080i are now reproduced with greater details than ever before.
0.5 Second Quick Start Stress Free Ultra Fast Booting
The boot time from standby to power-on has been greatly reduced from prior models, allowing ultra fast 0.5 second booting. With this improvement, movies can now be enjoyed with less stress by less waiting time.
(* With Quick Start on.)
HDMI Jitter Purifier Pure Music Experience, with Sound Faithful to the Original
In order to greatly reduce jitter error in the HDMI transfer, an HDMI Jitter Purifier has been added to the DMP-BDT300 Full HD 3D Blu-ray Disc Player. This addition will allow the maximum Blu-ray sound to potentially be achieved for any AV receiver or TV.
VIERA Link Eco Function Smart Energy Saving with VIERA Link
The DMP-BDT300 excels in features such as the VIERA Link energy saving functions. Blu-ray Disc player automatically turns on/off depending on the TV status.
