Panasonic TH-42PF20U (TH42PF20U)
42" 1080P FULL-HD Plasma Displays
Panasonic's new NeoPDP™ technology provides outstanding black detail and allows for more impressive presentations. This newly developed panel increases luminous efficiency by approximately 4x, and achieves the industry's highest contrast ratio of 5,000,000:1
To take maximum advantage of the inherently superior black expression of self-illuminating plasma displays, the Panasonic TH-42PF20U (TH42PF20U) new high-grade professional panel allows the PF20 series to emit light without the use of a pre-discharge. The industry's highest contrast ratio combined with deeper black reproduction forms the basis of its image expression that renders richer textures with more subtle shading and color differences.
Versatile video inputs and the new "Slot 2.0" function slot expands all display applications. You can input both analog (component video, video, PC) and digital (DVI-D, HDMI) video signals to this display. These standard-equipped terminals handle most of the commonly used video signals. And the new "Slot 2.0" function slot allows you add display functions that match the intended use. Mounting an optional function board allows the display to support a variety of applications.
PJLink™ - compatible network function, lets you operate displays by remote control and monitor their status through a LAN connection. Since it supports the PJLink industry standard, existing infrastructure can be used for effective plasma display operation.
Items included with the Panasonic TH-42PF20U:
- NeoPDP Technology
These panels are the latest to take advantage of our new plasma technology that not only improves image quality, but also enables them to be lighter, brighter, and more energy efficient. Along with improvements to contrast ratio and steps of gradation, both models have over a 20% decrease in their power consumption specification and over a 10% decrease in weight as compared to their respective 11 series predecessors.
- New Flexible SLOT 2.0 Architecture
The new PF20 series panels are our most versatile yet with a combination of fixed terminal inputs as well as a function slot to accommodate plug in modules for additional functionality. Fixed inputs now include:
These panels can be controlled remotely by a serial RS-232 connection or by new fixed LAN control port, enabling control and status monitoring over an existing network. The PJLink industry standard protocol is also supported so these panels can be easily integrated to environments that also use projectors such as conference rooms, lecture halls, and auditoriums.
