The Japanese consumer electronics giant Panasonic will soon start shipping the world’s first 3D plasma HD TVs. The device will support full 1080p and will be branded as VIERA VT2. The series will be available in two models, the 54-inch TH-P54VT2 and the 50-inch TH-P50VT2. The set will come with the 3D active shutter glasses included. Other important features include a 5,000,000:1 contrast ratio, 2.1 channel speaker system, 4 HDMI ports, a VGA output to connect your laptop/computer and also a D4 video output.
Although the 3D technology is the primary selling point, the VIERA VT2 by itself is a seriously well equipped HD TV. Initially to be launched in Japan sometime in April, the TVs will be prices at $4800 (50-inch) and $5900 (54-inch) respectively. Did we mention it will also feature an ethernet port?
