Panasonic adds pearlescent buff to its Viera D28 HDTVs
Ever open to new ideas, Panasonic’s new Viera Pure line aims for maybe a slightly different demographic to the usual AV buffs. The LCD TVs are to be made available in a selection of different coloured frames from the industry standard black, including purple, silver and ice white. Panasonic have also added a pearlescent buff to each, claiming that they will take on different colours in different lit rooms.
While this may appeal to interior designers and not TV experts, the screens still pack an excellent LED lit IPS panel for those deep blacks and wide viewing angles. The excellent Viera Link network technology for all that internet interactivity with YouTube and more is included with the 32″ and 37″ models but don’t feel bad for the 22″ and 19″ models, as instead of Viera Cast, they boast iPod docks.
The 19″ and 22″ also have Freeview, with the 32″ and 37″ models coming equipped with Freeview HD and Freesat HD.
While these TVs are evolutionary rather than revolutionary, being able to get a TV for the bedroom or lounge that goes with your decor has until now been difficult – however now you can, and what’s more is that it’s from an excellent brand.
