Product Description

Panasonic’s 2012 Blu-ray Disc players focus on smart home networking, high-quality picture and sound, ease-of-use, eco-efficiency, and sleek design. The BDT-500 is a Full HD 3D Blu-ray Disc player that features expanded VIERA Connect functionaliy, Full HD 2D-3D playback, FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec) compatibility, and superior sound and image quality. It includes high grade audio parts -- gold plated terminals, high grade electric capacitor, and an insulator to reproduce audio content that is faithful to the original. It provides for 7.1 channel output and includes twin HDMI outputs, allowing one to be dedicated for audio output. This allows for less interference with the video signal and also makes the BDT-500 compatible with legacy amplifiers.

VIERA Connect -- More Fun Comes Via a Cloud Service

Connection to a 24p capable TV via an HDMI capable lets you enjoy a wide array of content with full cinematic picture quality. This feature requires a TV that supports 24p playback.*

Great Sound with the UniPhier Chip Processor

This Full HD 3D Blu-ray Disc player features UniPhier single chip signal processing that eliminates unnecessary wiring, resulting in reducing noise on the picture and sound signal to the absolute minimum. The DVD Super Resolution Processor helps produce natural pictures with no false contours, higher resolution for details, and a reduction in noise.

Share and enjoy digital photos (JPEG), music (MP3, WMA) and videos (AVCHD, WMV) by simply connecting to a home network (LAN).  VIERA Link provides connectivity to other VIERA Link compatible products and NAS compatibility. The BDT500 has a Wi-Fi system built right into the main unit so you can enjoy VIERA Connect and BD-Live content without having to connect with a LAN cable or wireless LAN adaptor. Players are also compatible with the NTFS format HDD.

Adaptive Chroma Processing

Adaptive Chroma Processing is a high quality image-processing technology developed to precisely process each pixel of Blu-ray Disc video signals in the vertical and horizontal directions to produce extremely high color resolution and beautiful edges.


To personalize the home theater experience, the new multi-user mode on the BBT01 allows you to register four users and each can record individual favorite settings. You can select a personal icon from 16 pre-installed images, or photos from an external source. You also have the option to customize the home screen with any image you choose. Features like the home screen customization as well as enhancement of VIERA Connect allow you to easily personalize your entertainment experience to fit your lifestyle. Download the exclusive Panasonic app and you’ll also be able to use your iPhone or Android smartphone as a remote control for your BDT500. The BDT500 also comes with a new remote control that has a touch pad for intuitive operation and easy navigation through the GUI on the screen.

Full HD 3D Blu-ray Disc Playback

The advanced 2D technologies of the Panasonic Hollywood Laboratory have also been applied to 3D image playback, providing high quality images. 2D-3D conversion enables conversion of 2D images on DVDs and Blu-ray Discs into 3D images with natural depth perception. Screen type (flat or round) and frame color are easily selectable. Watch your favorite DVD movie collection in 3D for even greater viewing enjoyment.

The picture and sound quality is awesome.
I highly recommend the Panasonic DMP-BDT-500 3D Blu-Ray Player (and the other two components as well).
The only thing I don't like is the remote control which has a touch pad.

The dmp-bdt500 is Panasonic's answer to the audiophile's desire to have a machine that offers superb video AND audio playback--they have succeeded. The highlights of this machine are the four Burr-Brown 192kHz/32-bit DAC's, 7.1 channel analog output, higher end capacitors and a more robust construction. I will express my opinion(s) about the design, engineering and performance. This machine is a Blu-ray player (and dvds of course), a cd player and is has built-in Wi-Fi for streaming movies, music and such. Therefore, it has the potential of being a 'one stop' solution for all of our home media needs and desires. And hopefully, it will have the ability to satiate the needs of the audiophile without sacrificing performance for the sake of convenience.


This machine is handsome, if not understated. It is sleek without being tiny. It is elegant--not ostentatious. It 'hits the mark' without trying too hard. Panasonic, though a quality brand, has not always had the prettiest components. For many years (of late) I found myself scratching my head at the eccentricities of some of Panasonic's designs. There were weird, translucent stripes buried within the skin(s) of their televisions and disc players. Panny's had conservative looking shapes in a market rife with "pretty" electronic sculptures, and digital displays that featured antiquated sticks rather than the more aesthetically pleasing dot matrix variety. For these reasons, I am very impressed with the design of the dmp-bdt500. The deck is a well built machine with a mirrored facade; the bottom third of the front facade fades from a mirror to a nice brushed silver finish. The "Panasonic" logo is centered onto the mirrored section of the faceplate.

One simple comment: A couple of months ago I ordered the Oppo 93 & 95 and I returned them to the seller. These players got great picture but the sound quality, contrary to many hyped reviews, is not worth the money. They just sound cold to me (I already use tube amplifications). But with the Panasonic I found the picture is just as great. More importantly, it sounds better than the two Oppo. Inner details, micro-dynamics, musicality, all are there for you. I am writing as a 20 years audiophile. I use Audio Note Amp., Conrad Johnson preamp., and JBL speakers. The Panasonic is a great product for the audiophile. Buy it. It's actually cheap by comparison. The Panasonic team deserves congratulations!

I bought this player specifically to replace a previous Blu-ray player that I was very dissatisfied with due to some audio problems (let's just say "Life wasn't Good"). What I didn't expect is that the Panasonic player would also substantially improve both the video and audio I had been experiencing.

The player was shiny and beautiful out of the box which I will have to work to keep it that way since I imagine fingerprints will easily show up. But the real beauty is on the inside. The first Blu-ray I watched was The Gremlins and I immediately noticed that the picture quality was better than I had with the old player. My TV is only 720p, but the quality and the contrast of the picture seemed better to me. I first thought I might be imagining it since one might tend to bias themselves towards new equipment, but the next day while watching High Fidelity a friend of mine asked if I had a different TV because he thought it looked better than usual.

There is two audio features on Panasonic players that will help improve the dialog to music ratios by compressing the dynamic range of the signal and mixing more of the center channel into the stereo field (the center channel is generally more dialog heavy). Since I only have a 2.1 sound system I found these features to be great when playing movies at night as I don't have to keep adjusting the volume when listening at less than normal levels. The neighbors probably are happy I use this feature too.

Some reviewers have also complained about the touchpad on the remote, but after using it a few times I discovered I like it since I have memorized the proper commands and can usually do everything without looking at the remote at all.

This review is to clarify why you would want this unit over other models. It is not entirely clear from Panasonic or some tech reviews. It is not a player for universal downloaded formats, it is a near audiofool unit at a consumer friendly electronics price.

I was shopping for 3D BD player with dual HDMI output for future use and analog surround out for immediate use. Few models caught my attention, as few are available. This model is 2-5X cheaper (based on Amzon July '12 promotions) than other well reviewed options. This unit is considered reference on BD and excellent on DVD playback by industry review, and on new VT50 TV I would agree. However this is not an accomplishment any more as models less expensive have the same rating. Infact, that is the purpose of digital media. What does spending 4-20X more money get you? Maybe less with more gimmick features.

But the real reason to get this model is this unit is equipped with four independent 192kHz/32-bit Burr-Brown DACs for 7.1 channel sound on analog outs. While inexpensive parts they are only seen on high end avrs. It also has separate sound and video HDMI options for legacy AVR without HDMI 1.4 pass through. It can easily down mix to 5.1 for older AVRs. I have legacy Marantz SR6200 (6.1). While you lose 'mostly useless' functionality of on board decoders going with analog outs on avr's, most of those features are not present on legacy systems anyway.

There is a TREMENDOUS difference between online streaming over optical out and HD playback such as VuDu HDX with 7.1 dolby digital decoded to analog ports. I got several unpromted responses. (I was not fishing for compliments.) There could be many technical reasons aside from signal source, but I am please with result.
