Product Details

Panasonic 65" VIERA 1080P 3D Plasma Flat Panel HDTV - TCP65VT30

Step into the 3D World. The VIERA VT 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.

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.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 and the THX logo are trademarks of THX Ltd. which are registered in some jurisdictions. The THX 3D logo is a trademark of THX Ltd. All rights reserved. *Only the VT and GT Series

  • Deep Blacks in Bright Rooms Infinite Black Pro 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.

  • VIERA Connects You to a New World
    The exciting world of cloud based Internet service (Internet Protocol Television, or IPTV), is available for the entire family to enjoy. Now you can use an intuitive remote control while relaxing in your living room, having a variety of internet content at your fingertips.

  • Home Network Convenience DLNA / Wi-Fi Ready
    Connect a DLNA-compatible VIERA HDTV and DLNA-compatible AV equipment to your home network, and you can watch movies, listen to music, and view photos from any room in the house. VIERA HDTV's Wi-Fi capability gives you even more layout flexibility.

  • Memories Are Even More Powerful with 3D Image Viewer
    It's easy to view 3D photos and movies you shot yourself on the big VIERA HDTV screen. After shooting with your 3D-compatible camera or camcorder, simply insert the SD card into the slot on a 3D-compatible VIERA HDTV. The viewing is incredible, with images so realistic it feels as though you're right back in the moment. You'll find that lifes special moments are even more memorable when you preserve them in 3D.

  • Get Your Game Face On with Game Mode
    Games are much more fun when there's no lag in operation. VIERA HDTV's automatically choose settings that provide the optimal image, so you get super-fast response with virtually no delays. Even dark scenes with delicately rendered details are beautiful and easy to see.

  • One Remote Controls Them All with VIERA Link
    VIERA Link interlinks the operation of a variety of compatible AV devices, so you can operate them all using only the VIERA HDTV remote control. Setup is easy, simply connect the compatible devices to each other via HDMI cables.

  • Image Calibration Customized to Your Home ISFccc- Imaging Science Foundation Certified Calibration Configuration
    An ISF-certified installer can calibrate your VIERA HDTV, so that image reproduction is customized to the actual viewing conditions in your home and your personal preferences. The calibration process provides the settings that bring out the full expressive potential within the image signals. Settings for contrast, tint, sharpness and color are optimized to meet your home's lighting conditions for both daytime and nighttime viewing. *ISF and IMAGING SCIENCE FOUNDATION are trademarks owned by Imaging Science Foundation, Inc. *This function is exclusively for calibrator use. It is not intended for consumers.

  • Years of Beautiful Images Long Panel Life, Up to 100,000 Hours
    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 new panel technology, 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.

  • Environment-Friendly 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.

  • Easy Access to Helpful Functions with VIERA Tools
    The VIERA Tools user interface makes it easy to access and understand key functions. Simply press a function button, and an explanation appears on the screen. Keep the button pressed to activate the function immediately.

Absolutely phenomenal picture quality. Wins all the shoot outs. Infinitely customizable settings for your room. It is expensive, but when you compare it to the other top end panels you see that it is a better buy Half the price of the "best" LCD/LED panels and 1/3 of the Elites. For the money IMHO you can't beat this panel. The only downside is that it is not as bright as an LCD/LED panel. If you have very bright rooms, it is duller than the LCD/LED. That is the only downside I can come up with in regards to owning this panel. The prices are coming down lately as well. When you get it home, you will be amazed at the clarity and detail. You will want to upgrade the rest of your system to match the TV's capabilities. If you have not had a new TV in several years, you are in for a shock in regards to the picture quality. Amazing is an understatement. I personally do not know of anyone that is sorry they bought this television.

              Comments about Panasonic 65" VIERA 1080P 3D Plasma Flat Panel HDTV:

              This review (if you can call it that) is jumping the gun a tad as I don't have the 65VT30 yet. It will be delivered tomorrow. However, I had a good look at it in the shop and it looked amazing. Looking forward to a few weeks of tweaking and 3D bliss... I agree with everyone else that there should be more than one pair of 3D glasses included. Should be 2 pair of glasses minimum. I had the salesman 'throw-in' a second pair of glasses at no extra cost. I have heard that the anit-glare coating on the glass is very easily scratched... will have to be very careful not to clobber the screen surface... Looking forward to writing a indepth review in a few weeks....

                My Pioneer Elite 55" projection died after 17 years and I needed a replacement. I saw this TV in a store and the picture was incredible. With a blu ray dvd it seemed 3d the picture was that sharp. Abt delivered it to my home in Westchester, NY with no problems. I now have it connected to my home theater (receiver, cable box, DVD player, surround sound and sub-woofter). We don't actually use the speakers that came with the TV since they put out 20 watts and the receiver puts out 100 watts which connects to my surround sound speakers. The picture is still outstanding. Almost makes watching reruns worthwhile. Do be aware that this is the heaviest 65" TV on sale. With the stand it comes in at 139 pounds. We decided not to hand it on a wall so we had to make sure that the table it is on could support the weight. The 70" Sharp weighs less and the Samsung of the same size is around 90 pounds. We did try out the 3d and with the right movie it is impressive. The glasses are comfortable and are easy to recharge. Most of the 3d movies are animated and might keep the kids interest, adults not so much. We did get an universal remote, professionally installed, to make using the various components user friendly. I have not had a professional calibration and probably won't. We are very happy with the plasma in that the picture is not so bright that is blinding as are some of the LED sets. The plasma has more realistic color and is much easier on the eyes. My TV room has 4 skylights and even on a bright day we haven't had much problem with glare. You can also watch from some extreme angles without any picture degradation. Yup, one of the best decisions I've made in a long time.

                    the vt 65" has the best picture of any television I have ever seen. But come on Panasonic for what you charge you should give at least 2 sets of 3D glasses. Still love your your TV.
