Aspect Ratio
HDMI connection
The optimum size and aspect can be chosen, and you can enjoy finer images. (p. 11)
■Auto aspect: Auto aspect determines the best aspect ratio to use to fill your screen. It does this using a four step
process to determine if the picture being viewed is a widescreen picture.
If Auto aspect detects a widescreen signal it switches into the appropriate 16:9 or 14:9 widescreen mode. If Auto
aspect does not detect a widescreen signal then this advanced TV enhances the picture for optimum viewing
pleasure.
The text shown on the screen indicates how Auto aspect determined which ratio to use:
"WIDE" appears in the top left of the screen if a widescreen identification signal (WSS) is found or a signal found
through a SCART terminal. Auto aspect switches to the appropriate 16:9 or 14:9 widescreen ratio. This function
will also work in any aspect mode. "Auto aspect" appears in the top left of the screen if black stripes above and
below the picture are detected. Auto aspect chooses the best ratio and expands the picture to fill the screen. This
process can take several minutes, depending on the darkness of the picture.

HDMI (high-definition multimedia interface) allows you to enjoy high-definition digital images and high-quality sound
by connecting the TV and the equipment.
HDMI-compatible equipment (∗1) with an HDMI or DVI output terminal, such as a set top box or a DVD player, can
be connected to the HDMI terminal using an HDMI compliant (fully wired) cable.
HDMI is the world's first complete digital consumer AV interface complying with a non-compression standard.
If the external equipment has only a DVI output, connect to the HDMI1 terminal via a DVI to HDMI adapter cable (∗2).
When the DVI to HDMI adapter cable is used, connect the audio cable to the audio input terminal.
Audio settings can be made on the "HDMI1 input" menu screen. (p. 16)
Applicable audio signal sampling frequencies (2ch L.PCM): 48 kHz, 44.1 kHz, 32 kHz

A JPEG image modified with a PC cannot be displayed.
Images imported from a PC must be compatible with EXIF (Exchangeable Image File) 2.0, 2.1, and 2.2.
Partly degraded files might be displayed at a reduced resolution.
MPEG4 view can only show moving pictures recorded by this TV, Panasonic DVD recorder DIGA or mobile
camera D-snap.
When recording in MPEG4, format the SD card with this TV. The card may not operate properly if formatted with
different equipment.
Memory cards must be formatted with FAT12 or FAT16 in order to be viewed on TV. If the card is not formatted, it
may cause incompatibility with certain memory card adapters. If this happens, reformat the card using your digital
camera.
Reformatting the card will erase the images and pictures stored in it. Refer to your camera manual for more
information.
This function cannot display Motion JPEG and still image not DCF formatted (i.e. TIFF, BMP).
