Full HD 3D Image Display Technology Panasonic uses full-HD sequential playback to achieve a level of reality that far exceeds conventional 3D systems. Called the Frame Sequential Method, it's the same method that is used in Hollywood's 3D films. It reflects Panasonic's commitment to 3D imaging detail. Separate images recorded are in 1920 x 1080-pixel resolution for both the left and right eyes and are alternately displayed at the ultra-high speed of 120 frames per second. Viewing them with high-precision 3D Eyewear produces 3D images in full-HD quality.
