Panasonic 55" VIERA Class UT50 Black Flat Panel 3D Plasma HDTV, Model TCP55UT50



  • Enjoy the Ultimate 3D Experience
    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
  • Crisp, Clear Moving Pictures
    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.
  • Expressive, Lifelike Colors
    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*.
    * Only for the VT, GT Series of Plasma TVs and WT Series of LCD TVs.
  • Smooth Reproduction of Web Movies
    Web Smoothe

    The blurring that often happens in web images is eliminated to produce naturally smooth motion.
  • Easily Convert 2D Images into 3D
    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.
  • Movie Content with Smooth Playback
    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.

    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.

    * Requires the downloading of a free app from VIERA Connect Market.
  • Inside the User's Manual

    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 select and display the eHELP from VIERA Tools.
  • Takes You to a New World VIERA Connect

  • Neat and Comfortable Wireless Internet Connection
    WiFi Ready

    It is easy to connect to the internet or a home network by using the Wireless LAN Adapter. 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 Wireless LAN Adaptor.
    * The Wireless LAN Adaptor is sold separately.
  • Get More Excitement Out of Gaming
    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.
  • Play Various Types of Formats Easily
    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.
  • One Remote Controls Them All
    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.


  • Environment-Friendly Panel
    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.
  • Years of Beautiful Images
    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.
  • Searching for Waste and Automatically Saving Power
    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.
  • Adjusts Screen Brightness to Suit the Room
    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.
  • Ecological and Easy
    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.
