7 Reasons For
1,200Hz faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Panasonic TX-40DX700 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,400Hz, however the Panasonic TX-40CX680 is only a 200Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (1,200Hz slower) and the Panasonic TX-40DX600 is only an 800Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (600Hz slower). Read more

The motion interpolation frequency is the frame rate which the TV is able to artificially create by inserting additional frames into the picture between the frames included in the original video source. Motion interpolation technology can sometimes create some unwanted side effects such glitches when the technology suddenly activates during an action scene. Most modern TVs will have an option to switch off the motion interpolation if it is not desired.

A faster motion interpolation frequency will result in smoother action scenes, less motion blur and a more life like image.

Common interface (CI) Edit
The Panasonic TX-40DX700 has a common interface (CI), whereas the Panasonic TX-40DX600 does not. Read more
