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.

Panasonic TC-P54VT25
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.

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-P54VT25 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-P54VT25 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-P54VT25 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.

Customer Reviews

The tv itself is very attractive and the picture quality is outstanding.
Richard
The off-center viewing experience is dramatically better than any LCD TV... the picture is sharp and clear and colors are excellent well past 45 degrees off-center.
Akamai22
This TV was significantly less money (especially when you include the extras required to watch 3D).

Before I make any large purchase I make sure to try and do my homework. I had an 8 year old panasonic lcd projection tv that worked fine but it was time for an upgrade. After looking at CNET, Consumer Reports, avs forums and others there was a consensus that this TV was the best TV of 2010. This TV has the best 3d and among the best 2d with some of the best black levels this side of the pioneer kuros series.

After bringing it home and setting it up I am blown away. The 3d picture is fantastic to a point while watching Avatar with my son he said "Is this real!" The 2d picture is also spectacular with excellent black levels. I set this tv up with my PS3, xbox 360, and Wii and they all look fantastic. 3d gaming on the ps3 is an immersive experience.

Overall, the only thing is that it is not as thin or flashy as the LED's but they can't touch the picture quality this tv gets. Great product!

First of all, I'm not a technical expert on any of LCD/LED/Plasma TVs. I'm planning to buy a LED 3D TV/Plasma 3D TV on the Black Friday. I read very good reviews on Panasonic Plasma 3D TV than an equivalent LED 3D TV. I've not seen a 3D TV yet myself, so myself and my wife decided to go to BestBuy(BB) to check out practically. Even before we went ot BB, I checked couple of my friends and they said I should go for LED and that is the only way and that Plasma is dead and gone soon. We reached BB and went into the 3D center and saw a Sony 60-inch 3D LED TV(don't remember the model # but the cost is close to 4 grand) and Panasonic 54-inch 3d Plasma TV(model # TC-P54VT25 54" 1080p Plasma 3D TV). I told the technician that I wanted to see a 3D demo of the Panasonic Plasma 3D TV. He said the fixed mount 3d glasses are already attached in front of the Panasonic 3d Plasma TV and that I can go and watch the Avatar movie. I watched the movie in 3D and it's exactly like what we watched in the movie theaters and the colors are crisp and the picture quality is superb. My wife then watched it from the fixed mount and she said the 3D quality is superb. I then asked the technician to put the same Avatar 3D movie in the Sony 3D Bluray player attached to the 60-inch Sony 3D TV and asked for 2 pairs of Sony 3D glasses for the Sony 60-inch tv as there was no fixed mount 3D glass in front of the Sony TV. I watched by sitting in the front couch of the Sony TV and found the 3D tv reasonable. The tech asked me to stand up and move sidewards(any side) couple of feet and then there is the ghost image and the loss of the color and 3D effect. I did the same thing on the other side and the same problem existed. Then the tech asked to sit in the middle of the couch(my initial position).Read more ›

First, let me state my wife and I work on TV & motion pictures and consequently very particular when it comes to having a good picture and sound. I've studied a variety of large format (50"+) LED LCD & Plasma Flat screens for my living room. I can only equate it to car purchasing experiencing. Like most, I'm a true value shopper. High quality @ a super low price. I researched tons of consumer magazines and online experts including customer comments. It didn't really reconcile the dilemma of too many choices. The old saying, "the more you know, the more you know you don't know" holds true. I'm not as TV Tech savvy as a Best Buy TV salesperson and still felt overwhelmed. That said, I understand LED LCD Edge Lit is the "new rage" and Plasma is "fading fast," but I didn't want to get suckered into purchasing a screen just because thin is in or some "expert" told me this is for you. I was foolish and did just that. I went to Fry's, to buy an LG 55" 9500 3/D for $1,500. A steal considering msrp is $4,999. Of course, it was "limited to stock on hand" and they were completely sold out. I met a very nice Samsung Rep, who was very helpful understanding my needs and came home with a 55" LCD/LED Edge Lit Samsung 7000. My wife took one look and said, "I don't like it." Nuff said.

The "value electronics 2010 Shootout" was the most helpful. The judging and review by engineering experts & motion picture professionals backed up their top selections and rated them #1-6 with the specific technical reasons why. The comprehensive coverage of all the major brands will surprise you. Most people, including myself assume #1 would be priced way up there and not really a "consumer value." It's not true.

We had been planning on getting a 3D TV to replace our 2D 42" Panasonic plasma (now moved to the bedroom) We initially looked at the Samsung 58" and the Sony 55". When Panasonic made theirs available, we looked at it and preferred it. Recent sale offers from Amazon caused us to get it now.

First, the appearance of the set is superb. Sleek, glossy black exterior with a touch of silver and a stand that looks good but doesn't distract you from looking at the screen will fit many decors. OK, it isn't as "skinny" (front to back) as LCD/LED sets, but we've always preferred the color and contrast of a plasma set. Also, 3D appears more natural in plasma.

The initial setup is fairly straight forward, but there were items I encountered that I felt required more than a 0ne line on screen description or short sentence in the manual. There are many options for both video and audio, so you should find that things can be adjusted to your liking. I particularly like the THX setting.

I tested the set using the Avatar disc in 3D. The quality of the picture was outstanding. In some respects, it was even better than what I'd seen in theaters. There were some scenes that had a slightly layered look in the theater, but didn't appear so with the Panasonic. Now, if they will only release more good 3D content.

The only negative in this whole experience is the firm Amazon uses to ship TVs, Home direct USA and the trucking firm used from the nearest terminal to my home. The TV was picked up in Goodyear, AZ on 12/30 and arrived in Santa Fe Springs, CA on 1/3. Its projected delivery date was 1/5. When I'd heard nothing by 1/4, I decided to speak to a "customer care" person.
