Product Description

3D Blu-ray Disc Player, Full HD Left/Right-eye, Viera Cast, Wi-Fi Ready


The DMP-BDT100 joins Panasonic's DMP-BDT300 and DMP-BDT350 Blu-Ray players in providing superior 2D and 3D picture quality, as well as VIERA CAST internet functionality, support for a wide variety of standards, video upconverting, re-sampling and remastering of audio at 96 kHz, and other great features. Step right into the 3D world with the DMP-BDT100.

The BDT100 outputs stunning and immersive Full HD 3D imagery to compatible HD displays. Click here for a larger image
Frame Sequential Technology: Full HD Signals for Each Eye

The BDT100 outputs stunning and immersive Full HD 3D imagery to compatible HD displays. Panasonic's GT25 series 3D HDTVs, for example, allow images for each eye to be alternately reproduced at the rate of 60 frames per second (fps), making a total fps for both eyes. Viewers watch the images through high-precision 3D Eyewear (not included), which opens and closes the left and right shutters in synchronization with the alternating images. As a result, a separate 1920 x 1080 full-HD image is sent to each eye. This addresses the image quality problems and blurring that were common to earlier 3D systems, and creates sharp, crisp 3D images.

Wide Format Support

The BDT100 player outputs full 3D HD, handles a wide variety of audio standards, and upconverts all standard definition video formats to 1080p, the highest-possible video resolution.

Users can also watch 2D images (JPEG) and movies (AVCHD*2/MPEG2*2) from digital cameras and camcorders via the integrated SD card and USB slot, as well as 3D Content shot by a Panasonic HDC-SDT750 Camcorder.

Serious Audio

The BDT100 will decode Dolby Digital Plus/Dolby TrueHD and DTS/DTS-HD high-resolution audio, with much higher fidelity than CDs and support for up to eight full-range audio channels. Lower quality audio is up-sampled and re-mastered at 96kHz, for rich audio presentation no matter the media format.

With the new P4HD Enhanced full HD upsampling, the standard definition movies in DVD also approaches full HD quality.
BDT100 PHL Reference Chroma Processor Plus
PHL Reference Chroma Processor Plus reproduces color data with twice the accuracy of conventional systems, for distinct borders between colors (left) and details and nuances matching the original movie (right).
Full-featured remote included.

Perfect your sound with tools like the Dialogue Enhancer, which increases the center channel volume to make dialogue easier to hear, or Night Surround Mode, which compensates for hard-to-hear surround effects when listening at low volume; or dynamic compression, which evens out soft and loud sounds.


Enjoy online content on the big screen with a wired or wireless (with purchase of wireless LAN adaptor) broadband connection. Panasonic's VIERA Cast service brings a variety of streaming services including Netflix, Amazon VOD, Pandora, Twitter, and YouTube Videos into the living room.

True to Cinema Picture Quality

Even with large capacity Blu-ray media, the great volume of master movie data cannot fully be saved onto a single disc. Master data must first be compressed to fit to the capacity of a disc, and the key to decode this compressed data faithfully is to know the master data. Panasonic has a long history of research in image compression technologies, and has authored plenty of Blu-ray Disc movies at Panasonic Hollywood Laboratory, working directly with Hollywood filmmakers. By incorporating this accumulated knowledge, Panasonic can provide true-to-cinema picture quality, enabling faithful reproduction of the nuances, touch, and atmosphere the filmmakers intended.

PHL Reference Chroma Processor Plus

PHL Reference Chroma Processor Plus is a high quality image-processing technology developed to precisely process each pixel of the Blu-ray Disc video signal in the vertical direction. It reproduces color data with twice the accuracy of conventional systems to keep colors faithful and sharp.

New P4HD Enhanced Full HD Upsampling

With the new P4HD Enhanced full HD upsampling, standard definition movies on DVD approach full HD quality. The picture is intelligently analyzed to have the best matching process done on each pixel, resulting in a sharper image with no false outlines, higher resolution for details, and less noise in unchanged parts.

Adaptive High Precision 4:4:4

The DMP-BDT100 reproduces the color signals in horizontal directions with higher resolution. This means not only full-HD movies in 1080p, but concert and documentary films delivered in 1080i resolution are now reproduced with greater details than ever before.

Half-Second Quick Start

The boot time from standby to power-on has been greatly reduced from prior models, allowing ultra-fast, half-second booting. Stop waiting and start watching.

VIERA Link Eco Function

The DMP-BDT100 automatically turns on/off depending on the TV status, for energy saving and longer product life.


x.v.Color is the new standard in high-definition color, which delivers up to 80 percent more color than standard HDTV for breathtaking realism and vivid, natural colors.

Panasonic's DMP-BDT100 Blu-ray 3D player is currently one of the least expensive options for 3D Blu-ray playback, but this doesn't mean it sacrifices performance for the sake of cost savings. The player offers a robust set of streaming options (Netflix, Amazon VOD, YouTube, Pandora, etc.) as well as very good DVD upconversion and outstanding Blu-ray playback, for the same price as many standard 2D Blu-ray players. UPDATE: VUDU is now also available on the BDT100 via a recent firmware and server update.

The player lacks some features compared to the top of the line DMP-BDT350: no dual HDMI output (only needed if you are using this with an older non 3D-compliant receiver), no multichannel analog outputs (for use with non-HDMI receivers) and no built-in WiFi networking (can be added via the Panasonic Wireless LAN Adapter). It also offers a fairly clunky user interface lacking the modern graphic-driven GUI that you see on current LG and Samsung Blu-ray players, though it is superior to the user menu on the Pioneer players. But the DMP-BDT100 provides all the basics, and several advanced features, as well as strong high def video and audio performance. The player passes all the upconversion and film cadence detection tests on the "Spears and Munsil" and "HQV Benchmark" DVDs and Blu-ray Discs with flying colors and also offers enhanced 4:4:4 color output with 24p (24 frame/second) output options for both DVDs and Blu-ray Discs. If silver discs are primarily how you watch your movies, then there is little to fault in the BDT100.

We did notice a peculiarity with Netflix streaming on the BDT100.

This player was thrown into the deal when I bought my Panasonic TC-P58VT25 TV two weeks ago. The TV is terrific. This player worked fine but was shipped with downlevel ver. 1.04 of the firmware. The Panasonic site had a download and instruction to update the firmware to ver. 1.14. Followed all the instructions, burned the update disc and followed the instructions for the update. Everything worked per the instructions except the last step. Tray opened and message on panel says UPDNG. OK so far. However I never got a finish message and can now do nothing with the player. Called Panasonic Tech Support which is a nightmare and I said it's been sitting on UPDNG for well over and hour without going to Finish. Was told the update normally only takes about 30 minutes and they had me try the update again with the same results. I even tried burning another disc in ISO 9660 format as per the instructions with the same results. Tech Support said they'd send me an update disc but will take 7-10 business days to arrive. I have doubts it will fix the problem and now my player is useless until I can try what they send. Anyone else have update problems and figured how to solve it? Except for this problem I was happy with the player and TV combo.

UPDATE: After getting nowhere with Panasonic help and having a player that did not work I managed to return the broken player and exchange it for another one. This time I waited until I had my ethernet connection in place and saw the message about a new version of firmware available. I followed the directions in the manual for a network update and it worked flawlessly. So I guess my advice would be to not try burning an update CD yourself. If you need to go that route contact Panasonic to mail you one (they will).

I waited to buy this Blue-ray 3D player because it was half the price of the BDT350. I was a little worried if it would be as good? I have to say this player is great. I first watched the movies Panasonic sent me for buying the 50inch VT25 3D TV. Now it is time to pick out some more movies! I am no tech, but the 3D is great on the movies they sent. I am glad I went with Panasonic they seem to have an edge on 3d! I wanted to buy more 3D glasses that is why I waited for the BDT100 to come out. Why spend the money on a player when you can outfit the whole family in 3D glasses! I made the right decision!

In the past 3 years I have own 5 different blu-ray players, all Sony, except for this one. I have the Panasonic DMP-BDT100 blu-ray for hooked up to a Panasonic TC-L37U22.

The overall rating of this unit is based on a variety of basic uses that most new customers will find important, I have also rated each of these uses individually, based on my experiences with the Panasonic DMP-BDT100.

Playback of blu-rays:
3 out of 5 stars
Every once in a while (not often) it will not read a blu-ray disc for reasons that are unknown to me. When this happens I just take the disc out, clean it with some blu-ray cleaning fluid and this almost always fixes the situation. When a blu-ray is first inserted into the machine it has to "load" (unlike a DVD) and a "loading" image comes up on the Panasonic main menu, as well as on the screen once the blu-ray is actually playing (it says "loading" on the bottom of the screen even after the blu-ray starts playing). The overall picture quality is very good; compared to other blu-rays that I have used it's no better and no worse. There is an excessive amount of noise coming from the player itself because a fan comes on anytime a blu-ray is being played. Although this is normal, it does not come on for DVDs. Also, the audio seems somewhat lower when a blu-ray disc is being played, I have tried adjusting the sound levels on both the player itself and on my TV and nothing seems to correct this. The unit does not say the name of the blu-ray on the home menu, also the unit does not have that very cool looking Back to The Future blue light that comes on anytime a blu-ray is being played.
