3D Technology Checklist

This product is 3D-related. To help you get a great 3D experience, use our checklist below to ensure that you have everything you need. If you have any questions or want to learn more about 3D, we invite you to visit 3D 101--our center for everything 3D. To get started with 3D, please ensure that you have:

A Display

The first--and most important--item you'll need is a 3D-ready display--whether it be a 3D HDTV, 3D projector, or 3D computer monitor. These displays usually have a higher processing power than older models as they need to display one image for each eye to create a 3D effect.

A Source

While your display is ready for 3D playback, you still need a device to read 3D content (i.e., a movie or a show). This source can be a cable box with a subscription to a 3D channel, a 3D Blu-ray Disc player, or a PlayStation 3.

Content

In order to watch 3D, you will need to get some 3D content. This 3D content will come from the source mentioned above in the form of a 3D program, movie, or game. Please ensure that your 3D movies are in the Blu-ray 3D format, as this new format will provide the best 3D experience.

3D Glasses

All 3D HDTVs on the market require Active Shutter glasses to create the 3D effect. You will need to buy one pair of glasses for each viewer. Also make sure that the Active Shutter glasses you buy are compatible with your display--for example, buy the glasses from the same brand as your 3D HDTV.

HDMI Cable

To connect your source (such as a 3D Blu-ray Disc player) to your display, you'll need a hgh-speed HDMI cable. Cables with this designation--with bandwidth speeds up to 10.2 Gbps (gigabits per second)--will be able to carry the 3D signal without any loss of quality.

If you want to get more information about 3D, shop our 3D products, watch videos, or interact with other customers, visit 3D 101, our customer center about everything 3D.



(December 2010)
Panasonic's 50-inch VIERA TC-P50VT25 Full HD 3D Plasma TV is ready to put you right inside the action. With brand new 3D and proven 2D technologies for serious realism, THX certification, and a wealth of analog and digital inputs and outputs, it's perfect for experiencing cinimea in your own home. Add VIERA Cast for accessing Internet content, image viewing and video playback from SD cards, and 30 watts of high-quality audio, and you've got a cutting-edge foundation for your home theater setup.

Panasonic TC-P50VT25
The VIERA VT25 Series Full HD 3D Plasmas create an all new viewing experience by putting you inside the action and creating a new world of TV viewing realism.

Full HD 3D Realism

Frame Sequential Technology

The method used to send left-eye and right-eye 3D images viewers is key to the 3D image quality, and Full HD 3D uses what's called Frame Sequential technology. The VT25 series plasma display panel allows 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, which open and close 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.

3D Display Optimization

The Frame Sequential Technology requires images to be displayed at 1/120 of a second--twice as fast as ordinary full-HD images. If the luminescence time for each frame were simply shortened, the screen brightness would be lowered. To solve this problem, panasonic shortened the luminescence time and raised the luminescence intensity, to keep things bright and detailed. Additionally, newly developed fast-decay R and G phosphors reduce the afterimage time to 1/3, to ensure 3D images are displayed with no visible afterimage.

Panasonic 3D Eyewear

Included with each VT25-series VIERA 3D TV is one pair of 3D eyewear necessary to view the 3D content. To share the experience with others, additional 3D Eyewear may be purchased separately.

Award-winning picture quality.

The Eyewear can be easily adjusted to fit various face shapes and sizes, from children to adults, and their extremely durable hinges withstand repeated opening and closing. You can also use these glasses over your normal prescription glasses.

Stellar Video and Audio Performance

Infinite Black Panel Pro

With Infinite Black Panel Pro, VIERA HDTVs are able to display extremely robust blacks. A new panel and improvements to the cell discharge area dramatically increase contrast when viewing in brightly lit locations. And reducing the electrical pre-discharge that causes graying has greatly enhanced black gradation. As a result, deep, rich blacks are displayed in virtually any viewing area, from living rooms to bedrooms. Even in dark film scenes, clothing textures, individual strands of hair, and other fine details are clearly reproduced.

The Real Film Experience

This display is THX certified, meaning it reproduces film images as the filmmakers intended them. To receive THX certification, TVs undergo stringent tests to determine, for example, whether the exact same brightness and color are displayed at all screen locations, and whether black levels satisfy standard criteria. VIERA meets the high standards set by the THX Certified Display Program.

Crisp, Clear Moving Pictures With 600Hz Sub-Field Drive

600Hz technology lets you view superb full-HD motion and still images with 1,080 lines of resolution. For even greater clarity with motion images, Panasonic uses its own unique image-analysis technology. This technology converts the motion in each scene into dots. And each frame is practically displayed for a shorter length of time than in previous systems, to reduce aftereffects.

Panasonic Video Technologies

Panasonic offers a wealth of video technology with their displays, and the TC-P50VT25 is no exception. 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. 3D Color Management optimizes all colors to deliver pictures that are beautiful to the human eye. 24p Cinematic Playback displays movies in natural, cinematic motion, allowing you to experience theater-like viewing at home. And gaming mode optimizes all settings for quick response and great graphics when paired with your gaming system.

Solid Audio

The TC-P50VT25 boasts three speakers to deliver great sound (when you aren't listening through your home theater system, that is). Two full-range drivers and a woofer for the low-end deliver 30 Watts of crystal-clear sound. BBE's ViVA sound widening technology widens your stereo image, and a built-in surround effect makes things more immersive even without satellite speakers.

Connectivity and Convenience

Great Web Entertainment, Home Video Conferencing, and More

The age of the Internet TV is well underway, and VIERA Cast's assorted online content keeps getting better. In addition to the popular content such as YouTube and Picasa Web Albums, it now offers Pandora Internet Radio, movies streamed from Netflix (paid service), exciting sports from FOX Sports, tweeting web communications with Twitter, and even home video and audio conferencing with Skype (with the optional communication camera TY-CC10). It also provides USB terminals for a keyboard and Wireless LAN Adaptor.

VIERA VT25 Series VIERA Cast
Panasonic's VIERA Cast lets you access Internet content, from streaming movies to social networking.

Easy Viewing of Full-HD Photos and Videos

Thanks to Panasonic's VIERA Image Viewer, it's easy to view full-HD images off of SD cards. Watch and show your photos and motion images right after you take them. Simply insert an SD Memory Card into your VIERA HDTV to display photos and full-HD videos on the large screen. You can also choose from among 5 types of background music and 5 display effects. It's much more fun when you can view them on a large screen HDTV with family and friends. Throw some MP3s on that SD Card and you can also play them back, for a quick music solution.

Operation With a Single Remote

For those who own multiple Panasonic VIERA devices--VIERA Link allows interconnected operation of various AV devices using only the VIERA remote control, by simply connecting compatible devices to each other by an HDMI cable. The TC-P50VT25 is ready to integrate into your existing VIERA system.

VIERA Tools

Navigating your system's features is important, too. With the new VIERA Tools user interface, simply press a button on the remote control and icons such as the photos or movies from the menu screen. Now you can just select the one you want. This kind of easy operation means you have more fun and less hassle.

Everytime I turn this tv on, it brings a smile to my face. The picture quality is the best I have ever seen, especially the THX mode. Blu-ray discs become a must. The black levels are so good you may find yourself picking out blu-ray movies that feature dark scenes just to see how well they look. Dark games like Fallout 3 or Arkham Asylum look simply incredible. 3d Works well, I have tested it with the Killzone 3 demo on PS3 and you feel totally immersed. I did not see any "ghosting" affects. One complaint is I wish it had a wireless capability. It requires a wired connection or you need to purchase a separate adapter for wireless. Viera Cast stuff is good. Netflix is included as well as YouTube, Pandora, Amazon etc. Youtube for some reason has a pared down interface and I wasn't able to select HD resolution like I can from PC. But they could fix this in a firmware update and it can be done from PC so no big deal. I don't think there is any better TV you can buy at any price point, unless you are just getting a bigger size. The new vt30's will probably best this tv but they will cost a lot more. Recommend!

Edit: 3/17/2011. Unfortunately, the TV has burn in issues. We were very diligent during the first 100 hours, but then we started playing games thinking it was safe. My wife had been playing Fallout 3 the last month or so and the HUD from the game is now burned into the screen. Unbelievable that Panasonic isn't warning customers about this possibility. Instead, the warnings are focused on only the first 100 hours. We play in THX mode, contrast and brightness set to 70. I was led to believe that burn in was no longer a problem on these sets after the first 100 hours. Unfortunately, this is NOT the case. Lowered my rating of the set to 3 stars.

I did not think it would be as good as the movies we have went to see. It is better! My kids say it is better! My Grandkids say it is better! We have Directv so I can watch 3D any time of the day. There still is limited shows but I am hoping for more. I love this TV!! I bought it for the 1080p not the 3D. but the wife said get a HDTV with 3D it is the way to go. She reads Consumer Reports, so I checked all the reviews and this Panasonic was listed as top line! Something about Panasonic is the only 3D to use 1080p in both eyes? Directv also listed it as one of their advised 3D TV's to buy, it was the first on their list BTW! Now I am no techie, but my daughter told me after watching for 5 minutes that this 3D was so good I could sell seats in my house! LOL. I wish 2 sets of glasses came with the TV but hey if you can afford this set you can afford the glasses. I just hated giving them back and forth to the whole family all night. I bought my Pana here on AMAZON @ World Wide Stereo and they used CEVA to ship the TV the truckers came with the TV early (3days) and helped me get the box off too. Very nice delivery men BTW! The whole process from order to turning this TV was 5 Star for me. This is my second Panasonic HDTV the first is a 720p in our bedroom that I have had over a year and we are very happy with. I have watched how many ESPN 3D football games? How many 3D shows? People came in on Halloween and sat down and would not leave! they just wanted to see 3D!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Its better and better...

Originally I was looking at a LG 3d LED. I had two disasterous experiences at two different Best Buys and ended up going to the local TV/video store (Video Only, if you happen to be in an area with one). They really know their stuff, and pointed me to this beauty.
It's not as sleek as some of the 0.5" thick LED's (it's about 3.5-4"). It doesn't have built in WIFI. The internet applications leave something to be desired. But the picture quality can't be beat. Hands down, the best picture I have seen from a TV. I was skeptical of a plasma, but the quality, reliability and durability of the plasmas today outweigh the benefits of a LED tv. You can look up and compare the numbers, but the fact is that this tv "just looks better".
One thing to note is that LED's generally offer a "crisper" image (at least according to the guy at the store), but their color quality diminishes greatly when viewing from an angle. But let me say I haven't had any complaints about the quality. It is sharp and looks great.
The 3D capabilities of this look stellar. I played through Call of Duty: Black Ops single player campaign in 3D and was completely blown away by the quality and the effects this TV is capable of displaying.
Overall, this is a great TV. My only real complaint is that it's a bit pricey. I was able to score this set with a Panasonic 3D starter kit (2 3d movies and 2 extra pairs of glasses), a 3d blu ray player and another set of glasses (in addition to the set included with the tv and the two in the starter kit) included in the price. Awesome deal.

This TV is awesome. You don't have to be blown away by the 3D feature when the 2D looks this good. It's so clear with near perfect color that the 2D looks almost 3D. I ran a video test of the calibration of it and it didn't need any adjustment. This was a first for me. No red push. The only thing I can find fault with is only one pair of 3D glasses comes with it. Also, if you want to hang it on an already purchased wall mount it does not come with the screws that fit the four holes in the back. Other than that, WOW!
