First was color, then HD.
Now get ready for the third wave 8211; Full HD 3D
Tremendous developments have driven TV technologies from the 20th century until today. Among them, color TV and high definition (HD) TV were two major advances. Progress was achieved in recording media as well, from tape to DVD, and then to Blu-ray Disc™, with Panasonic constantly leading the way in both TV technologies and recording media. Now, Panasonic presents a third breakthrough in the form of Full HD 3D 8211; and totally redefines image realism 8211; with advanced image technologies that aim to bring more lifelike viewing experiences to us all.

Frame Sequential Technology
Full HD Signals for Each Eye
The technology in which the left-eye and right-eye 3D images are sent to the viewer is key to the 3D image quality. For this, Full HD 3D uses something called Frame Sequential technology. First, the plasma display panel, which has a number of inherent advantages for moving picture resolution, was further advanced to allow images for each of the left and right eyes to be alternately reproduced at the rate of 60 frames per second (fps), making a total fps for both eyes. Viewers watch the images through high-precision 3D Eyewear*, which open and close the left and right shutters in synchronization with the alternating images. As a result, a separate 1920 x 1080 full-HD image is sent to each eye. This addresses the image quality problems and blurring that were common to previous 3D systems, and creates sharp, crisp 3D images.
* Included with each VIERA 3DTV is one pair of 3D Eyewear necessary to view the 3D content. To share this experience with others, additional 3D Eyewear may be purchased separately.

High-speed 3D Drive Technology
Greater Beauty for Both 2D and 3D Images
The Frame Sequential technology of Full HD 3D requires the images to be displayed at 1/120 of a second, which is twice as fast as ordinary full-HD images. If the luminescence time for each frame were simply shortened, the screen brightness would be lowered. To solve this problem, the luminescence time was shortened and the luminescence intensity was raised, which made it possible to produce bright, crisp 3D images.

Crosstalk Reduction Technology
Clear 3D Display with Minimal Afterimage
The Frame Sequential technology shortens the luminescence time for each frame. If the pixel afterglow remains unchanged, the previous image will remain as an afterimage when the next image is produced. Newly developed fast-decay R and G phosphors reduce the afterimage time to 1/3, to create crisp 3D images with no visible afterimage.

3D Eyewear*
High-Precision Shutter Control Sends Clear Images to Each Eye
Highly precise control completely closes the shutters for both eyes at the instant that the images change for the left and right eyes. This masks unwanted afterimages to enable clear and comfortable 3D viewing.*
* Included with each VIERA 3DTV is one pair of 3D Eyewear necessary to view the 3D content. To share this experience with others, additional 3D Eyewear may be purchased separately.

Infinite Black Panel Pro
Rich, Detailed Blacks
With Infinite Black Panel Pro, VIERA® HDTVs are able to display extremely robust blacks. A new panel and improvements to the cell discharge area dramatically increase contrast when viewing in brightly lit locations. And reducing the electrical pre-discharge that causes graying has greatly enhanced black gradation. As a result, deep, rich blacks are displayed in virtually any viewing area, from living rooms to bedrooms. Even in dark film scenes, clothing textures and individual strands of hair are clearly reproduced.

VIERA CAST™
Enjoy great web entertainment and home video conferencing

VIERA Cast's assorted online content just keeps getting better - in addition to the popular contents such as YouTube and Picasa Web Albums, it now offers Pandora Internet Radio, movies streamed from Netflix*, exciting sports from FOX Sports, tweeting web communications with Twitter, and even home video and audio conferencing with Skype. It also provides USB terminals for a keyboard and Wireless LAN Adaptor. No PC required.
Skype function requires an optional communication camera TY-CC10.
Skype service will be available late June 2010.
*Netflix unlimited membership required. Service on Viera Cast TV will be available summer 2010.
*Keyboard and Wireless LAN Adaptor are not included.

*Design and content are subject to change without notice.

Skype™ on Your VIERA® TV

VIERA Cast's addition of Skype makes it possible for people around the world to connect and communicate through voice and video calls from the comfort of their own living room on VIERA's large screen.

Skype function requires an optional communication camera TY-CC10.
Skype service will be available late June 2010.
* Broadband connection and a webcam required


THX® Certified Display
Real film experience

THX® reproduces film images as the filmmakers intended them. The overall aim was to improve the experience of cinema-goers and faithfully recreate the audio and visual ambience that filmmakers intended. To receive THX® certification, TVs undergo stringent tests to determine, for example, whether the exact same brightness and color are displayed at all screen locations, and whether black levels satisfy standard criteria. VIERA® meets the high standards set by the THX® Certified Display Program.

600Hz Sub-field Drive*
Crisp, clear moving pictures

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 dots. And each frame is practically displayed for a shorter length of time than in previous systems, to reduce aftereffects.

*When using cinema mode.


VIERA Image Viewer™
Easy viewing of full-HD photos and videos

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 Memory Card into your VIERA HDTV to display photos and full-HD videos on the large screen. You can also choose from among 5 types of background music and 5 display effects. It's much more fun when you can view them on a large screen HDTV with family and friends in 1920x1080-pixel high definition and a wide 16:9 aspect ratio.

VIERA Link
Operation with a single remote

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

*VIERA Link is a new name for EZ Sync. Not all VIERA Link features are usable with other VIERA Link and EZ Sync compatible products.

Reviews

TC-P58VT25 is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 20345.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Picture Quailty Hands Down!! Panasonic makes the best plasma HDTV's. This is my second HDTV from Panasonic. The 3D is excellent. Just got my Avatar Blu-ray from Panasonic and ca't wait to watch it. As on reviewer stated which I agree with, the sound could be much better, but at least you can hear it. I use a 7.1 surround receiver mostly. I also own a 65" TH-65PZ850U. Extremely happy with both TV's. Best picture quality hands down!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this TV! After months of looking settled on the VT25 3D. Am I glad I did. Since this is my first plasma I was a bit apprehensive but I am amazed every time I walk in my living room. My kids love the VT25 because their video games practically jump out at them. The 3D is a new experience for us. In Best Buy the Panasonic beat them all out. I bought a new stand with the elevated swivel post. That's the way to go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TOP OF THE LINE, BEATS LED dont waste time comparing, i did all that for you, i always want the best. by far this is the best.especially with all the incentives. Superior black-level performance and excellent shadow detail; accurate primary colors in THX mode; great color saturation; effective antireflective screen; reproduces 1080p/24 cadence properly; VieraCast provides access to select Internet services and improved customization; solid 3D picture quality; includes adjustable grayscale in THX mode; some artifacts in 1080p/24 mode; fewer streaming services and apps than the competition; Bottom Line: With both 2D and 3D sources, Panasonic's flagship TC-PVT20/25 series plasma TV delivers outstanding overall picture quality. Yes, it beats the one other first-generation 3D-compatible TV i've tested, and yes, it actually includes 3D glasses, plus 2 free from panasonic i think this TV's 2D prowess is unmatched. i also recommand panasonic home theater, small speakers but clearer than my $2500 system. happy holidays.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing TV I originally went to buy an LED TV but after talking with three different people at three different stores all of them recommended this TV over any other TV. It has the most amazing picture I've ever seen on a TV. 2D and 3D are both beautiful and the black levels are so nice. I am so happy with this purchase. Thankyou Panasonic for making such a beautiful TV.
