Panasonic Viera TVs (I've been looking specifically at the seemingly excellent TX-P50ST50B) have a setting called True Cinema. Can anyone explain how that differs to any of the other viewing mode settings?
What I'm interested is disabling as much image processing by the television as possible, so that the pixel values placed on the screen are as close to the source content as possible. I'm less concerned by the display's attempts to normalise levels, colour etc. than I am by sharpening, smoothing, frame interpolation and similar operations that attempt to "improve" the image I am seeing.
Which viewing mode will render the content as faithfully as possible?
And as a side question, I'm hoping that a TV such as the P50ST50B will be able to show 2D 1080p60 content ... can anyone confirm?
