Viera TVs make extensive use of DLNA technology. DLNA is a networking standard used to stream content from one device to another on a home network. It only requires that all the devices be DLNA compatible. But that does help when a person owns only a single DLNA-enabled. Fortunately, Panasonic Viera televisions take further advantage of the built-in Wi-Fi.
Viera connect and Viera connect apps change the way people view television. Just like any app store, such as Android's and Apple's, Viera connect hosts full screen games, social networking, video and music applications.
Users can watch television and have Facebook or Twitter streaming live updates on the side of the screen. Without any added equipment, users can take advantage of all the popular streaming services such as Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, YouTube, Hulu and many others.
An Internet connection and a Viera enabled television gives you unlimited access to the Viera Connect Market. Many newer televisions come with some basic interactive apps installed, so it's hard to stress just how much more is available through Viera. Categories include: Video & Movie, Music, Sports, Games, Social Networking, News & Weather, Health & Fitness, Lifestyle & More.
And the Viera Connect Market is still growing. Panasonic opened its platform to third parties and developers. So expect to see a lot more coming to Viera Connect in the future.
Viera Makes it Even Easier
Panasonic makes Viera Internet-ready televisions easy to use with added support through various means.
The Viera Remote app gives mobile device users the ability to control their Viera features right from their phones or tablets. The app exists for iPhone, iPod Touch, the iPad and Android devices.
Clicker provides a cross-search feature for multiple VOD services, including the premium ones. With so much programming available through the various apps, the service Clicker provides is invaluable.
On a Viera remote, you will find the Viera Link button. Viera link allows you to connect multiple devices and then control them all with one remote. So instead of three remotes to control the television, home theater and DVD player; you can use one remote to control all three. Viera link is not just for Panasonic products. As long as the other components are connected to the television with HDMI, Viera link features are possible.
Panasonic's most recent offerings are pushing the boundaries of what televisions and home theater setups can do. Their Internet-ready televisions with the built-in Wi-Fi offers people a chance to experience the best combination of television and Internet with some social thrown in as well.
Panasonic has made the logical leap to app-enabled television sets with its Viera line of plasma and LCD/LED televisions. Much more than just apps however, the Viera line offers some of the most innovative connectivity options of any other Wi-Fi enabled televisions.
