Panasonic TC-P60GT50 Features

  • Active Shutter Progressive 3D Method: The display alternately shows images for the left and right eyes. The left and right lenses of the eyewear open and close in sync with this display timing to show separate images to the left and right eyes
  • Panasonic 'FULL HD 3D' is defined as follows: Compatible with 1,080p 3D signal, Panel has native resolution of 1,920 x 1,080p display
  • 2,500 Focused Field Drive: This original Panasonic technology detects image movements like the human eye, and optimizes the drive accordingly. By achieving instantaneously powerful light emission rather than finely divided emission, it reduces the afterimages that cause blurring
  • Vivid Color Creation: Enhancements to the panel and cells help reproduce images with smooth, natural gradation and deep, rich blacks - even when viewed in bright surroundings. In movies, deep blacks faithfully convey the intent of the filmmakers, adding power and realism to the viewing experience
  • 24,576 Equivalent Step of Gradation: Even highly nuanced black images in dark areas that were previously impossible to express are now rendered with incredible fidelity. Finer light emission due to a newly developed drive technology raises the steps of gradation
  • 1,080p Pure Direct: The 1,080p Pure Direct function transmits and outputs high-quality YUV 4:4:4 30-bit video signals directly to the TV. This reproduces colors that are highly faithful to the original
  • Pure Image Creation: Diagonal lines and edges are detected with high precision in each scene for all types of images, and optimal correction is applied to achieve beautiful, highly natural, noise-free lines
  • Vivid Color Creation: The brightness, saturation, contrast and sharpness of colors are finely compensated in each scene. Highly vivid colors are produced with hardly any mutual interference. People's faces are also detected, & skin tones are beautifully corrected to ensure soft, natural complexions
  • Web Smoother: The blurring that often happens in web images is eliminated to produce naturally smooth motion
  • 2D-3D Conversion: Unique Panasonic technology converts 2D images into high-quality 3D images in real-time. The image depth is analyzed from the compositional, color and brightness data of each scene, to convert 2D images into naturally beautiful 3D images
  • 3D 24p Cinema Smoother: Enjoy naturally flowing 24p films and familiar TV-like quality. In plasma displays, increasing the number of frames creates smoother images. When reproducing images from a 24p film source, VIERA's 24p cinema smoother function generates smooth, natural-looking images
  • THX 3D Certified Display: In order to enjoy the original image quality of a movie, you need to have a display that portrays the images exactly as the movie's creators intended. VIERA has cleared the high standards set by the THX Certified Display Program
  • 3D Real Sound with 8-Train Speakers: Eight dome-type micro speakers with reflectors deliver wide-ranging, high-quality sound. Only about 8 mm thick, these compact units also contribute to the beauty of the narrow-edge design
  • Super Slim Sub-Woofer: The sub-woofer, which is mounted to the rear surface of the panel, delivers robust bass sounds. Its super slim design, with a thickness of only 22 mm, helps to keep the entire display attractively thin
  • Sound Lifting Driver: Original Panasonic acoustic-field compensation technology produces highly accurate sound imaging. Matched to human auditory characteristics, the frequency for the bandwidth in which the sound is located is adjusted and the optimal compensation is applied
  • VIERA remote App Support: Smartphone Remote: VIERA remote App lets you use a smartphone or tablet device as a remote control. Tap and flick-based commands are intuitive. Text input is easy, too, with familiar keyboard operation. These handy devices also make great gamepads
  • Free Point Operation: More intuitive free-point operation for web browsing, by using the touch screen as a touchpad
  • Game Pad Operation: Gamepad operation for VIERA Connect game applications which can be enjoyed on the large screen
  • Browser Linkage: You can display the same web pages on VIERA and smartphone with easy operation
  • Media Flick: Enjoy photos, music and movies on VIERA and smartphone anytime
  • Simple Remote Control: This remote features easy-to-see characters and an easy-to-understand button layout. It lets everyone in the house operate VIERA quickly and easily
  • Multitasking: Multiple VIERA Connect applications can be easily switched with the task display. There is no need to open and close applications every time. This makes VIERA Connect applications more fun to use
  • VIERA Connect: VIERA Connect is an internet service for TVs based on the use of cloud servers. It brings you video-on-demand (VOD), catch-up TV, games, educational content, and lots more, through a wide range of apps. It's a great way to relax in your living room with family and friends
  • Web Browser: The browser supports HTML5 pages, so you can browse the Internet much like you do with a PC. Unlike a PC, though, the large screen allows the whole family or a group of friends to comfortably view a wide variety of content
  • WiFi Ready: It is easy to connect to the internet or a home network by using the Wireless LAN Adapter. There is no need for cords or cables, so the layout is flexible and the room stays neat and uncluttered

Amazing Picture

I waited a whole year for the new 60" model to come out and I'm glad I did. Last years 2011 model had wide borders and wouldn't fit into my cabinet space. This 2012 model has narrower boarders and fits perfectly in the space. Besides the amazing picture, the other great features including the built in Wi-Fi and internet make this 3D Plasma TV a excellent choice.

Dont buy this tv! Ours lasted 4 months before completely dying on us. And now, the repair company needs a part thats on back-order and will take "weeks" to get. So i spent 2 grand on a very large 60 inch paperweight. First and last panasonic i'll buy.

Terrible Market selection - won't approve Plex app

By

from Undisclosed

While the picture quality is very high quality, I am continually disappointed by the selection of "apps" in the VIERA Market. It pales in comparison to other competing "Smart" TVs. For example, Plex is a very popular media app that is available on every competing platform. It looks like someone actually built an app and submitted it, but they won't approve it. Very disappointed.

Excellent TV

By

from Orange County, CA

This TV is hands down the best TV I have ever seen. I knew going in the colors and blacks would be better, but wow. The quality of this TV is by far the best. Viewing angles are perfect, its very slim, easy to setup and the built in options are great. I am a video/audiophile and am very critical of TV's. I would never switch back to my LCD/LED TV's. The only con is it gets slightly warm after a few hours, but nothing compared to the early plasma TV's.

Plasma TV excellence

By

from Bethesda, MD  -  Power User

In a world inundated with LEDs (lights, TVs, car headlights), this Plasma TV has outstanding quality with a clear advantage in the 'least stress to the eyes' category.

the best tv ever

By

from New Jersey

I was a Sony customer for 49 years, but after spending 4000 dollars on a HDTV I had a bad experience with the television itself and a worse experience with Sony customer service. Thinking it was time to try something else, I bought a Samsung HDTV which after 3 days I had to return. I then decided to try Panasonic, and after 10 months I am still in love. The picture is the best, there are no problems with playing video games, and the movies are better than at the movie theater, even being impressive with the 3D.

Wow!

By

from Phoenix, AZ

We've owned this tv since June 2012. Blu-ray movies including 3D are spectacular. Glasses that work with this tv are very comfortable and easily fit over prescription eyeglasses. We use our home audio system for sound so can't comment on TV's built-in sound. We did have tv calibrated. Upscaled regular DVD's even look fairly decent on this tv. I find every excuse I can to purchase a new 3D movie so I can see it on this tv....LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! Netflix HD streaming looks good on tv also as well as Cox HD programming. I hope this plasma lasts forever...but, if it doesn't, I'm buying another Panasonic!

Great picture, loud buzzing

By

from NY

The pros of this TV include excellent picture and very good sound. The screen is pretty reflective, but not more than similar models, just don't plan on using this during the day in a room full of windows. Black levels on this are phenominal. Colors are good straight out of the box, but after calibration are stunning with good source material. The internet connectivity items, apps such as the web browser and youtube, are nice, but still need some refining, until they are sorted using a laptop connected via HDMI is a better bet. They feel like they were rushed out the door and that the programmers might be slightly embarrased about releasing them the way they work now. The bigest problem with this TV is the ambient noise it makes. Plasmas tend to be noiser than other big screens, but this model is exceptionally loud when displaying bright white images. Louder than any other large screen plasma model from other manufacturers I have encountered and I've purchased a few and tested many more. A under warranty visit from a tech confirmed that this is a recognized problem, but that the TV was within spec. and not out of order. If you like to watch ice hockey or winter/snow based documentaries at anything less than normal listening volume, do not buy this TV. It will sound like bees are about to attack. If you like loud action movies where the sound is going to be up all the time you might not notice it as much or be willing to live with it for the great picture.

JEFFREY K  Yes it's 2012 Model. No, it does not come with glasses.
Shopper  does it get a bright picture GT50 ?. yes.
DAVID C  As bright as you would want, in my opinion, unless your viewing area has a very high level of ambient light. I'm not a big LED fan, as many of them look unrealistically bright. I have two Panny plasmas and the realism is great, and isnt phony-bright. But it's plenty bright to enjoy it under most conditions....great picture.
