RGB Curves

The Panasonic TC-P42GT25 also did rather well in the RGB color curve test. If you look at the chart below, you can see that the curves are relatively smooth and that the red, green, and blue channels move in unison. There's clearly some rough spots when the green channel gets bright – we'd expect to see some color banding there. However, we're impressed with the level of detail the TV maintained in both shadows and highlights. More on how we test RGB curves.
