Will Panasonic ever include 96hz on a G series

by king_john_3 / November 20, 2010 7:07 AM PST

I've asked alot of questions over the past few months about the best gaming TV, Blu-Ray viewing, etc but I think what it all comes down to is will Panasonic ever include a 96hz function on a G series TV? I don't care about 3D and the G series is frustratingly close to the PQ of a VT but that little 96hz thing is the only hangup I have. Anybody have any idea at all? Thanks

I'm going to write no. And tell why.

Here's the why. To offer more options of Hz refresh we would need to control the pixel decay time. All current displays from CRT to LCD to PLASMA all use a technology where a pixel is set to some on value and then begins its decay to "off."

Now this is where it gets interesting. To hit 120Hz, 240Hz we need to used a pixel decay time from FULL on to HALF off in 1/60, 1/120 or 1/240 of a second. The math for this is easy.

To use 60Hz content on a 240Hz display we simply refresh the panel 4 times with the same image. You can work it out for 120Hz and so on.

96 doesn't work out as any multiple so this is the simple reason why you will never see 96 unless you are creating your own display from scratch (got billions?)

The Panny V lines have the 96hz option.

No they will not, panasonic has to give you options on why to upgrade to the V lines.

I have a 54G10 panny & have it set to 60hz, 48hz setting I see too much flicker. The 24fp direct in setting options (Hz) only works when playing a blu ray disk, DVD's & cable/Sat/OTA it is grayed out with default 60hz.

In reply to: Umm

It appears you found you want a "Panny V line".

If you knew this, why not share what stopped you?

what kills me about your question is...
by Pepe7 / November 21, 2010 11:07 AM PST don't even both to respond to the questions asked of you in your other thread regarding 'imperfections in blu ray'. Personally I think you are hung up on something you really aren't comprehending.
