The Panasonic VIERA TC-P42S30 is a high definition plasma television built for fast-moving video. This is the base model of the series, followed by the larger Panasonic VIERA TC-P46S30 that has the same features. It uses a 42 inch display that works in 1080p resolution, and is built with fast switching phosphors that enable movement on the screen without artifacts. A 600Hz sub-field drive is used to ensure that all colors are as accurate as possible, and a Game Mode is available to reduce lag to a minimum when working with gaming consoles. Network connections support access to Easy IPTV content, and DLNA is possible for users that want to play files from a networked media server.
