Breathtaking Realism


FULL HD 3D Blu-ray Disc™ Playback

Reproduction of all image data from Hollywood 3D movies on discs

The advanced 2D image technologies of the Panasonic Hollywood Laboratory have also been applied to 3D image playback, providing high quality images of the film that is approaching that of film. Lifelike 3D for beautifully reproduced images that leap off the screen with enhanced depth, luster and texture.

Adaptive Chroma Processing

Faithful color reproduction

Adaptive Chroma Processing is a high quality image-processing technology developed to precisely process each pixel of Blu-ray Disc™ video signals in the vertical and horizontal directions. Vertical color data has been increased 1.5 times (compared with 2010 models), allowing Adaptive Chroma Processing to reproduce color data more faithfully than ever before.

2D-3D Conversion

Watch 2D images in 3D

2D-3D Conversion enables conversion of 2D images on DVDs and Blu-ray™ Discs into 3D images with natural depth perception. Screen type (flat or round), and frame color are easily selectable. Watch your prized DVD movie collection in 3D for even greater viewing enjoyment. The new 2012 models can also convert content from VIERA Connect™* into 3D images of stunning depth.

24p Output for VOD

Cinematic playback for multi content

The Blu-ray Disc™ Players and Home Theaters not only play Blu-ray Discs™ and DVDs, but also video-on-demand movies content in the same 24p format as used at movie theaters. Connection to a 24p capable TV via an HDMI cable lets you enjoy a wide array of content with full cinematic picture quality.

*Requires a TV that supports 24p playback.

True to Cinema Sound Quality


3D Cinema Surround

3D surround feeling with additional depth

Cinema Surround is a state-of-the-art Panasonic technology that produces impressive theater-like surround sound. 3D Cinema Surround in the 2012 models provides authentic surround sound through a total of 30 real and virtual speakers. Sound is perceived as coming from the correct direction thanks to Panasonic’s proprietary direction perception control technology made possible by years of research. 3D Cinema Surround delivers a surround sound environment that satisfies like never before.

Anti-Jitter Digital Amplifier

Pure brilliant sound

Based on the phenomenal MASH noise shaping technology used for many years in Panasonic products, the Anti-Jitter Digital Amplifier markedly reduces jitter and distortion that can affect audio clarity, producing pure brilliant sound. The result is high quality sound with a full surround effect that rivals that of a real home theater.

SC-BTT490 is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 8.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice looking and good power The unit looks and sounds good. The documentation is very poor. It provides introductory information about features, but does not provide the user with enough information to use them successfully. I buy Panasonic for quality and reliability. In spite of these problems, I would expect this unit will live up to my expectations in those areas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wi-fi Home Theater I really love this equipment. I use Amazon Instant Video and Rhapsody and it works like a charm with my wi-fi connection. Blu-Rays look amazing on my Viera TV. Very happy with my purchase decision. As far as hardware goes I use the wireless rear speakers with it and it's just great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better then expected Having 3 kids and a small house, my very large speaker collection was getting complicated and in the way. I picked this as a SPIFF product for sales to unclutter my life. Didn't expect it to sound this good. It by no means replaces huge full range speakers with surround, but the centralized single unit with the upgraded video capabilities coupled with pretty good sound is impressive. If I had to do it again I would in a heart beat. My wife loves it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with this system. I bought the optional wireless rear speaker receiver and it works perfect. Adjustment of speaker output level was very easy which is a big plus.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product I purchased the ST50 55" and wanted a surround system to go with it. I purchased this during the promotional period. I have to say that it is quite impressive. I was able to free up 2 HDMI ports on the TV by hooking my XBOX 360 and PS3 to the receiver. The Viera Link feature is why I chose to have the same brand. I love that when I turn on the TV the surround system automatically fires up (less than 10 seconds) as well as any HDMI controllable device. It sounds pretty great watching movies and playing games. It only needs to be so loud, right? I have it setup in my living room (about 25 x 25) area. Not a lot of distortion while playing games, which is great. Of course the distortion level would depend on the actual source and its encoding. Overall I find this system to be great for the intermediate sound enthusiast. And for someone looking for an all in one DVD, CD, Blu-ray player, Radio, iPod/iPhone playback and charger, wireless, 5.1 surround, etc system. It's a great product...so far.
