Panasonic has unveiled a new range of HDTVs in Japan called the G2 line. The sets use what Panasonic is calling a newly developed "black panel" that boasts a contrast ratio of 500,000,000:1. The new models are set to launch on February 5th.

Not all of the sets support 1080p resolution. The Japanese translation isn't that great, but that contrast ratio is apparently dynamic, as we would expect. The line has a sensor to automatically detect the brightness in the room and adjust accordingly.

The new screen also promises a reduction in power consumption of 30%. The sets ship with a VIERA remote that lets you control the TV and web content if the set is internet connected. The TVs also have a memory card slot for viewing photos on the memory card directly.
