Panasonic 55" VIERA 1080P 3D Plasma Flat Panel HDTV - TCP55VT30

Step into the 3D World. The VIERA ST 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.

Key Features:

  • Full HD 3D (1 Pair of Glasses Included)
  • One Sheet of Glass Design
  • Infinite Black Pro 2 Panel
  • VIERA Connect WiFi Ready

Features:

Fast Switching Phosphor The use of fast switching phosphors has significantly reduced afterglow duration and reproduced clear 3D and 2D images. Fast switching phosphors are used in all full HD models.

Improved Pre-discharge & Filter Minimizing pre-discharge has made it possible to produce crisp blacks with minimal graying. Improving the filter shape has suppressed glare and reduced internal reflections in the front glass panel. The contrast in bright ambient light has been raised to enable rich, more robust blacks.

Improvement in Luminous Efficiency Achieves Low Power Consumption Everything - from the materials and panel structure to the drive method - has been re-engineered. These improvements are a result of the new phosphor and new electrode (fish bone) structure.

FULL HD 3D Infuses Reality into Every Image Frame Sequential Technology - Panasonic uses Full-HD Frame Sequential technology to create its 3D images. Images recorded in 1920 x 1080 pixels for both the right-eye and the left-eye alternately flash on the screen at the ultra-high rate of 120 frames per second. When you view the screen through active-shutter glasses that open and close each lens in sync with the alternating images, you see breathtaking FULL HD 3D pictures with stunning power and realism.

Full HD 3D

Smooth Film Images 24p Cinema Smoother - Enjoy naturally flowing 24p films with familiar TV-like quality. In plasma displays, increasing the number of frames creates smoother images. When reproducing images from a 24p film source, VIERA HDTVs 24p cinema smoother function generates smooth, natural-looking images.
*Only the VT, GT and ST Series

24p Cinema Smoother

Easily Convert 2D Images into 3D 2D-3D Conversion - Unique Panasonic technology converts 2D images into high-quality 3D images in real-time. The technology generates a detailed depth effect for each type of image, so the 3D effect is natural and realistic. Use VIERA HDTV to enjoy Blu-ray movies, DVD movies and even ordinary TV broadcasts in 3D. The Super Resolution function allows images that were converted from 2D to 3D to be displayed in sharp, clear 3D while minimizing double image. 3D images with crisp contours are also produced from 3D broadcasts using the side-by-side method.
*When a 2D source is converted to 3D, the 3D effect is slightly less pronounced than with 3D sources.

2D-3D Conversion

Crisp, Clear Moving Pictures 600Hz Sub-field Drive - Panasonic uses its own unique image-analysis technology. This technology converts the motion in each scene into data, and each frame is virtually displayed in a shorter length of time than in previous 600Hz systems, to create crisp images.
*When using Cinema mode.

600Hz Sub-field Drive

Even Faster Images Are More Precise Full-HD Resolution Speed of 1,200 pps - Full-HD Resolution Speed, the new standard for moving picture measurement announced by the Advanced PDP Development Center Corporation (APDC), indicates the maximum moving picture speed that can be enjoyed with full-HD resolution. VIERA HDTV's achieved 1,200 pps (pixels per second) under this new standard. Even images that scroll left or right at the extremely high speed of 1,200 pps are able to be correctly displayed at the maximum resolution of 1,080 lines.

Full-HD Resolution Speed of 1,200 pps

Real Movie Experience 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 HDTVs have met the high standards set by THX Certified Display Program, reproducing both 2D and 3D images with cinema-like quality.

THX 3D Experience

Deep Blacks in Bright Rooms Infinite Black 2 - In the new VIERA HDTVs models, contrast in brightly lit locations has been improved. 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, the true, deep blacks faithfully convey the intent of the filmmakers, adding power and realism to the viewing experience.

Infinite Black 2

Years of Beautiful Images Years of Beautiful Images - One important way consumers can protect the environment is by choosing high-quality products and taking care of them so they last for a long time. A high-quality VIERA HDTV can help. Thanks to a newly designed phosphor process and rear panel process, our plasma panels last for up to 100,000 hours before the brightness decreases by half. That's more than 30 years of viewing 8 hours a day.

100,000 Hours Panel Life

Environment-Friendly Panel Mercury and Lead Free Plasma Display Panel - Mercury and Lead Free Plasma Display Panel Panasonic is committed to making our products more friendly to the environment. In line with this commitment, all VIERA plasma display panels are free of both lead and mercury. This reduces impact on the environment years down the road when the TV is recycled or retired from use.

Environment-Friendly Panel

    I had the 54VT25 last year and that was an excellent tv, but this tv is a whole different beast. The black levels are just that, black as night and actually blends with the bezel. Movement on this tv is as perfect as I have seen. I don't know how they improved on last years model but the processing seems faster and smoother. Lastly if you were put off by previous years buzzing noise coming from the screen you don't need to worry any longer because this tv is almost dead silent. Much quieter than my ps3 or cable box IMO. Anyways, if you have the money and want the best of the best look no further.

    Bought it less than a year ago. 3 weeks shy of 1yr, technician came out and was on the line with Panasonic, determined it was the SC Board that shorted out and needed replaced. Problem was that Panasonic has had this board on back order since early December (almost a month and a half) and has no ETA on when this part will become available. I'm fortunate that I was under a protection plan and will get a new TV. I will be getting another Panasonic VT series and hopefully this was an issue that will be resolved in the newer model. Other than that, This TV has been amazing, best picture ever. no need to g to the movies.

                                Comments about Panasonic 55" VIERA 1080P 3D Plasma Flat Panel HDTV:

                                After watching a Panasonic 25 inch monitor reciever for 23 years it finally had its first problem. I had my best excuse to finally get one of these V series plasmas. I've looked at these for a few years now. Wow what a tv. It was worth the wait. If you can't get a good picture with all the many settings and adjustments you need to learn how easy it is by someone who can show you. This tv is fantastic. My cable company just offered new HD boxes with HDMI outputs. 1080i with the box is great. They keep adding more HD channels. Panasonic beat all the brands big time. Great job..The other brands have some catching up to do.
