THX® Certified Display

THX reproduces movie images exactly as the movie's creators intended them. In the early 1980's, Lucasfilm, established the THX Standard to stipulate the audio and video quality criteria for cinema environments. The overall aim was to improve the experience of cinema-goers and faithfully recreate the audio and visual ambience that film makers intended. VIERA meets the high standards set by the THX Certified Display Program.

Slim Style

This design embodies the concept: the blending of images and sounds. This smart new VIERA form gives a nod to classic design schemes while bringing fresh styling to the large flat-screen TV.



600Hz Sub-field Drive*

600Hz technology lets you view superb full-HD motion and still images with 1,080 lines of resolution**. For even greater clarity with motion images, Panasonic uses its own unique image-analysis technology. This technology converts the motion in each scene into data. And each frame is practically displayed for a shorter length of time than in previous systems, to reduce aftereffects.

* when using cinema mode
** Based on APDC measurement method.


AR Filter

This advanced filter keeps images sharp, with minimal glare. While dramatically reducing reflections from external light, it helps to produce clear images. This filter creates pure, crisp images in a wide range of colors.



VIERA Image Viewer™

It's easy to view full-HD images with the SD card slot. Watch and show your photos and motion images right after you take them. Simply insert an SD card into VIERA to display photos and full-HD videos on the large screen.
You can also choose from among 3 types of background music and 4 display effects. It's much more fun when you can view them on a large-screen HDTV with family and friends in 1920 x 1080-pixel high definition and a wide 16:9 aspect ratio.



VIERA Link™

VIERA Link™ allows interconnected operation of various AV devices using only the VIERA remote control, by simply connecting the devices to each other by an HDMI cable.

* VIERA Link™ is a Panasonic Distinctive name for the function of HDAVI control. Not all VIERA Link™ features are useable with earlier VIERA Link™ compatible products.



VIERA Tools

With the new VIERA Tools user interface, simply press a button on the remote control and icons such as the photos or movies from the menu screen. Now you can just select the one you want. This kind of easy operation means you have more fun and less hassle.

* VIERA Tools screen design image is subject to change without notice.
** The screen display varies depending on the model.



Game Mode

In Game mode, quicker image response increases the enjoyment of video games when a game console is connected to the TV. What's more VIERA produces the dark images in video games more clearly. This mode works anti-image retention (wobbling) too.

Reviews

TC-P50G15 is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY It's old news now, but these tvs have a firmware problem where the black levels are adjusted too rapidly over time. In turn, this tv does not perform as advertised, I've had mine for 7 months and have watched the picture quality go from amazing to horrendous because of the black level getting brighter. This applies to all g10 and g15 models as far as I'm aware. Burn in has also been a huge problem with my particular set, as well as a rattle coming from the speakers if the volume is turned up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best TV EVER I love this tv. It is so nice and has the best features. I looked at other brands, but by far the panasonice 50g15 had best picture and color . We even paired it with a panasonic home theather. It took our home tv entertainment to a new level. I would recommened this t.v. to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME!!! This TV has great colors and stunning detail. In a temporary set up right now, so I am unable to use the Vera-cast feature but the concept looks cool. I watch Star Trek on Blu-ray via my PS3 last night and it looked even better on this TV then it did in the theaters. That’s no joke. Even my wife could believe how stunning it looked it even got her to watch the entire movie with me. The richness of the black is amazing. I am so happy with this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great HD This is simply a great TV for HD. Personally I would not recommend this TV if someone is primarily watching SD TV. I think the SD picture is fair to good. But if you primarily watch HD TV you will be floored by the picture. Blue Ray movies are incredible. It is gorgeous too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV After battling with myself over the decision to go with Plasma or LCD, and doing ample amounts of research, I finally decided on the TC-P50G15. This television rivals any television on the market aside from the beloved Pioneer Kuro in black levels, which in turn makes the colors "pop" on this television. I decided on this over the S1 series due to the internet connectivity and the THX certified display, both of which I have found to be great upgrade features. The THX gets reviews around the internet that claim it's too dark, but if you use it for its intended purpose and watch movies as the director intended them to look (i.e. in the dark movie theater), if you turn your lights off and watch it is really magnificent. The other nice feature of this television with the internet connectivity is that it automatically updates the firmware each time new updates are released. This essentially "future-proofs" the tv to ensure all upgrades are done timely. I combined this purchase with a sc-bt200 home theater system and the blu-ray movies look almost too real! The picture settings come out of the box looking great, and I would say unless you are a real videophile you will not need to spend the extra $ to get a professional calibration done. My recommendation is to buy this television, it is big and full of features and you will not be disappointed when you pull it out of the box and start viewing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV I don't know anything about HD TV and not that much about the difference between Plasma or LCD. On the recommendation of the sales man we chose the G15 Plasma. On the whole we like the TV the TV speakers leave a lot to be desired so we use our surround sound system for the audio and turn down the TV volume. We are having a small problem with the TV saying it is displaying 480 when the Satellite says 1080. The picture looks good, hopefully the satellite dealer can correct that problem.

  • I can access other Apps on my TV, but cannot access Netflix. How can I fix this?
    Symptoms:
    • When the Netflix app is selected, the Netflix splash screen appears, then Netflix closes and returns to the VIERA Cast home screen, Network Services screen, or HOME screen.
    • When the Netflix app is selected, "Unable to Connect to Netflix. Please Try Again Later" is displayed
    • Netflix can be accessed, but when a title is selected, "Unable to Play This Title Right Now. Please Try Again Later" is displayed.
    • Netflix can be accessed, a title can be selected, but during playback the picture blanks out, buffers, or freezes frequently.

    Additional Information:
    • Network applications on Panasonic products are only accessible on networks with high speed internet access.

    Suggested Solution:
    • Power the Netflix ready device on and allow at least 90 seconds for it to connect to the network before performing a Connection Test.
    • Once the Connection Test has passed, attempt to open the Netflix application. If the Netflix application fails to open, manually change the Primary DNS settings to 8.8.8.8 and the Secondary DNS to 8.8.4.4. If there is only one DNS setting available, change it to 8.8.8.8 (click here for a TV network troubleshooting tutorial.)
    • Once the DNS has been changed, perform another Connection Test.
    • Once the Connection Test has passed, attempt to open the Netflix application.
    • If none of your applications can be accessed, unplug the power cord of your modem or router for at least 10 seconds.This will reboot your modem or router.
    • If the Netflix application still fails to open, try another network application. If other applications function properly but Netflix does not click here for Netflix Help Center or call Netflix customer support at 1-866-716-0414.

  • The power light on the TV is on steady, but I do not have a picture, sound or both?
    This could be caused by a few factors:

    First check to ensure your TV is selected to the correct input (Source). If you are watching cable or satellite, following the cable from that device to the back of your TV.
    If it is connected to antenna, HDMI 1/2/3, component or video you must also have the TV input select to match that connection. On the remote push the input button to check what source is selected on your TV.
    Very important, you must ensure your cable box or satellite unit is turned on.
    On some cable and satellite boxes, you may get audio with no picture if the box is turned off. If this does not resolve your issue, you may require service.
