    I noticed when looking at the picture on my Panasonic PX70 carefully/close up, say on a paused DVD, some areas of the picture (mid tones/colours) have a slight speckling/fizzing to them.

    ie: They're not perfectly static but 'fizzing'...

    I suspect this is absolutely normal but would appreciate it if someone else could confirm it...

    I would have thought with a static paused DVD image the image should be rock solid - ie: just like your desktop on a PC?

    Hi

    It's normal... Especially noticible on dark areas with gradients.

    It looks like this because Plasma displays create the different brightness levels by rapidly switching the pixels on and off at different duty cycles.
