2D to 3D-Conversion


Infinite Black

Panasonic SMART VIERA 65" Full HD 3D Plasma Flat Panel HDTV, Model TCP65VT50

Key Features:

  • Progressive Full HD 3D
  • THX 3D Certified Display
  • 2500 FFD
  • Infinite Black Ultra Panel
  • VIERA Connect Wi-Fi built-in with Web Browser
  • ISFccc Calibration Mode with Advanced Calibration
  • VIERA Touch Pad Controller
  • 3D Real Sound with 8 train Speakers
  • VIERA remote App Support
  • Glass and Metal Design

Features:

  • Active Shutter Progressive 3D Method
    The display alternately shows images for the left and right eYes. The left and right lenses of the eyewear open and close in sync with this display timing to show separate images to the left and right eYes. By repeating this action at high speed, the brain perceives 3D images. And because this method displays FULL HD 3D images just as they are, both eYes receive 3D images in high, full-HD quality
    • * 3D Eyewear is required for viewing 3D images
  • Panasonic 'FULL HD 3D' is defined as follows
    • Compatible with 1,080p 3D signal
    • Panel has native resolution of 1,920 x 1,080p display
  • 2,500 Focused Field Drive
    This original Panasonic technology detects image movements like the human eye, and optimizes the drive accordingly. By achieving instantaneously powerful light emission rather than finely divided emission, it reduces the afterimages that cause blurring. As a result, fast movement is reproduced with excellent clarity
  • Infinite Black Ultra
    Improvements to the panel filter that blocks the entry of external light, and advances in the pre-discharge control that can cause black floating have enabled deeper, jet-black shades. And preventing light loss in the panel cells allows VIERA to portray bright, crisp images at all times. Even in brightly lit living rooms, deep areas within dark scenes and fine textures are rendered with meticulous detail
  • 24,576 Equivalent Steps of Gradation
    Even highly nuanced black images in dark areas that were previously impossible to express are now rendered with incredible fidelity. Finer light emission due to a newly developed drive technology raises the steps of gradation by as much as four times over previous systems. Nighttime skies and other dark areas that were prone to blocked shadows are beautifully reproduced
    • * When using Cinema mode
  • 1,080p Pure Direct
    The 1,080p Pure Direct function transmits and outputs high-quality YUV 4:4:4 30-bit video signals directly to the TV. This reproduces colors that are highly faithful to the original
  • Pure Image Creation
    Diagonal lines and edges are detected with high precision in each scene for all types of images, and optimal correction is applied to achieve beautiful, highly natural, noise-free lines
  • Vivid Color Creation
    The brightness, saturation, contrast and sharpness of colors are finely compensated in each scene. Highly vivid colors are produced with hardly any mutual interference. People's faces are also detected, and skin tones are beautifully corrected to ensure soft, natural complexions
  • Web Smoother
    The blurring that often happens in web images is eliminated to produce naturally smooth motion
  • 2D-3D Conversion
    Unique Panasonic technology converts 2D images into high-quality 3D images in real-time. The image depth is analyzed from the compositional, color and brightness data of each scene, to convert 2D images into naturally beautiful 3D images. In addition to ordinary TV programs, this method can be used to convert a variety of 2D images — such as web content, Blu-ray Disc™ media, and photos and movies saved onto SD Memory Cards — into 3D images with a high level of precision
    • * When a 2D source is converted to 3D, the 3D effect is slightly less pronounced than with 3D sources
  • 3D 24p Cinema Smoother
    Enjoy naturally flowing 24p films and familiar TV-like quality. In plasma displays, increasing the number of frames creates smoother images. When reproducing images from a 24p film source, VIERA's 24p cinema smoother function generates smooth, natural-looking images
  • 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 has cleared the high standards set by the THX Certified Display Program. It reproduces both 2D and 3D images with cinema-like quality. Enjoy beautiful images that are optimal for movies
    • * 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
    • * Certification pending for the 65 inch
  • ISFccc Calibration Mode with Advanced Calibration
    An ISF-certified installer can calibrate your VIERA, 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 installer use. It is not intended for use by ordinary consumers
  • 8-Train Speakers
    Eight dome-type microspeakers with reflectors deliver wide-ranging, high-quality sound. Only about 8 mm thick, these compact units also contribute to the beauty of the narrow-edge design
  • Super Slim Sub-Woofer
    The sub-woofer, which is mounted to the rear surface of the panel, delivers robust bass sounds. Its super slim design, with a thickness of only 22 mm, helps to keep the entire display attractively thin
  • Sound Lifting Driver
    Original Panasonic acoustic-field compensation technology produces highly accurate sound imaging. Matched to human auditory characteristics, the frequency for the bandwidth in which the sound is located is adjusted and the optimal compensation is applied
  • VIERA remote App Support: Smartphone Remote
    VIERA remote App lets you use a smartphone or tablet device as a remote control. Tap and flick-based commands are intuitive. Text input is easy, too, with familiar keyboard operation. These handy devices also make great gamepads
  • Free Point Operation
    More intuitive free-point operation for web browsing, by using the touch screen as a touchpad
  • Gamepad Operation
    Gamepad operation for VIERA Connect game applications which can be enjoyed on the large screen
    • * Gamepad operations can be used only for games downloaded from the VIERA Connect Market
  • Browser Linkage
    You can display the same web pages on VIERA and smartphone with easy operation
  • Media Flick
    Enjoy photos, music and movies on VIERA and smartphone anytime
  • VIERA Touch Pad Controller

  • Simple Remote Control
    This remote features easy-to-see characters and an easy-to-understand button layout. It lets everyone in the house operate VIERA quickly and easily
  • Multitasking TENTATIVE
    Multiple VIERA Connect applications can be easily switched with the task display. There is no need to open and close applications every time. This makes VIERA Connect applications more fun to use
    • * Some applications do not support the task display
  • Product Support Center
    Frequently asked questions (FAQ) about connecting peripheral devices and operating methods are explained using movies. They are easy for everyone, young or old, to understand. A video guide can be accessed from VIERA Connect
    • * Requires the downloading of a free app from VIERA Connect Market
  • eHELP
    No more need to search through the User's Manual. Now you can find out how to operate and connect devices right on your TV screen. Just press the HELP button on the remote control to display the eHELP
  • VIERA Connect
    VIERA Connect is an internet service for TVs based on the use of cloud servers.
    It brings you video-on-demand (VOD), catch-up TV, games, educational content, and lots more, through a wide range of apps. It's a great way to relax in your living room with family and friends
  • Web Browser
    The browser supports HTML5 pages, so you can browse the Internet much like you do with a PC. Unlike a PC, though, the large screen allows the whole family or a group of friends to comfortably view a wide variety of content
  • WiFi Built-In
    It is easy to connect to the internet or a home network by using the WiFi Built-In function. There is no need for cords or cables, so the layout is flexible and the room stays neat and uncluttered. Using a wireless connection for VIERA Connect and employing the DLNA function make it easy to share photos and movies
    • * A wireless LAN environment is required to use the WiFi Built-In function
  • DLNA
    A DLNA-compatible VIERA makes network connection super easy. It makes content easy to share by linking equipment over a home network. Enjoy photos, movies, music and more in the living room, bedroom, or any room in the house
  • Game Mode
    Games are much more fun when there's no lag in operation. VIERA automatically chooses settings that provide the optimal image, so you get super-fast response and no delays. Even dark scenes with delicately rendered details are beautiful and easy to see. Game mode makes all of the game apps on VIERA Connect even more fun to play
  • Media Player
    Simply insert an SD Memory Card or USB memory stick into the slot to enjoy previously saved photos, video clips and music on VIERA's large screen. You can also add frames and other effects to your photos and videos, and create slide shows complete with background music. A wide variety of formats are supported, so you can listen to PC-based music files and web movies right on your TV
    • * Applicable formats vary depending on the model
  • VIERA Link™
    VIERA Link interlinks the operation of various AV devices, so you can operate them all using only the VIERA remote. Setup is easy, too – simply connect the devices to each other via HDMI cables
  • Mercury and Lead Free
    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 the impact on the environment years down the road when the TV is recycled or retired from use
  • Long Panel Life
    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
    • * This measurement is based on the time taken for the brightness of the panel to reduce to half of its maximum level. The time taken to reach this level may vary depending on the image content and the environment where the TV is used. Image retention and malfunctions are not taken into account
  • Eco Mode
    This mode automatically turns the power off and adjusts the brightness depending on VIERA's operating status. Settings can be configured by selecting Eco mode from VIERA Tools
    • No Signal for 10 Minutes or No Activity for 3 Hours
      This setting automatically turns the power off when there's no image signal for 10 minutes or more, or when there's no activity for 3 hours or more
    • Power Save
      This setting adjusts screen brightness to reduce power consumption
  • C.A.T.S. [Contrast Automatic Tracking System]
    This detects the brightness of the room and automatically adjusts screen brightness accordingly. When the room darkens, it lowers the screen brightness and adjusts the image quality for easier viewing while suppressing power consumption
  • Power Saving Functions in VIERA Link™
    The power of each connected device is adjusted depending on usage to reduce wasteful usage
  • Standby Power Save
    When VIERA is turned off, the power consumption of connected devices* is minimized
    • * VIERA models for 2009 or above, and video products for 2009 or above compatible with Power Save or Quick Start
    • ** The power consumption value differs depending on the discs used in connected devices and the usage conditions
  • Intelligent Auto Standby
    Power consumption is minimized by using VIERA Link™ control for interconnected devices
    • * VIERA models for 2009 or above, and video products for 2009 or above compatible with Power Save or Quick Start
  • One Sheet of Glass
    Flat and lustrous, this single pane of glass is totally obstruction-free. It expresses a minimalist sense of beauty by stripping away all unnecessary elements

The VT50 is the consumer TV of the year as far as I'm concerned. I am a THX Certified Level II Video Calibrator and with one exception Panasonic really got it right this year. In the Custom or (calibrator accessible)Day and Night ISF modes a full set of calibration controls is available and this display calibrates very well. The single exception is that the luminance controls in the Color Management System are inoperative but will hopefully be fixed in a future firmware release. Despite that, the luminance is very close to correct from the factory and within accepted calibration specifications.

Another plus is that maximum brightness has been increased this year making the VT50 good for daytime bright room viewing.

      I knew I was going to be blown away by this TV going from a 15 year old rear projection unit but after a month I am still in awe of the picture quality. Out of the box the THX cinema setting provides an outstanding picture I have the professional calibration scheduled and I can't wait to see how that turns out. It's hard to imagine it being better but that is what I am told.

      Comments about Panasonic 65" 1080P 3D Smart Viera Plasma HDTV:

      This TV has a STUNNING picture. Very Natural. Arguably the best TV built in 2012. It has none of the inherent weakness of LCD like off center viewing or motion artifacts. Many power users love it and pay to have it calibrated, but many people also post the settings on the Internet for you to duplicate. One thing perhaps overlooked is the dual core processor. This thing runs rings around other Streaming or internet players for speed. I can tell that it is much cooler than previous Plasmas, thus more energy efficient. Only quible is the Chrome Trim around the edge. (It reflects a Lamp I have in the room) Keep in mind that many new Thin TV's are quite short on Input jacks other than HDMI. This one uses a strange Dongle to provide either ONE component or ONE composit input. So, if you have more than one older non-hdmi device, you need to run them thru a reciever. Sound is only fair, but not unexpected as with any thin TV.

            This television dwarfs my old 50". The features are top-notch, and the screen quality is honestly amazing. It's about an inch thick, and the glass covers nearly the entire front surface. With a blu-ray player, I upconverted Raiders of the Lost Ark on DVD, and it was magic. The sound is very muffled. A surround-sound system is impractical and unwanted for us, and I'm disappointed in the speakers. It sounds like somebody's sitting on the characters. The speakers are so ineffective that I originally thought the TV only had one speaker, which turned out to be the woofer. (There are two tiny speakers on the front bottom.) Even with the bass down and the treble up, the sound reminds me very much of Kenny McCormick.

            The television itself if amazing. It dwarfs my old 50" Panasonic. Many professional reviews say this is the best TV in the world, but what kind of TV has only monaural sound? I don't want surround sound cables running around my room; and I don't want to mount anything on my wall, so I don't want surround sound. The one speaker this TV has is muffled and useless.

                  We absolutley love the tv but wish the speakers were better. The picture is just outstanding CNET was correct in labeling this as the best HDTV for picture in 2012.
