Infinite Black Pro

Enjoy remarkable contrast with incredibly deep black levels, even in bright rooms. Enhancements we've made to the panel and cells allow for images with smooth, natural gradation and deep, rich blacks for heightened realism and power. Now you can experience movies the way the director intended, right in your own home.

2,500 Focused Field Drive — For Crisp, Clear Moving Pictures

Enjoy crisp, clear images, even during hi-speed action scenes, thanks to a combination of enhanced phosphors and original Panasonic technologies specifically engineered for motion image performance. With our advanced sub-field control optimizing light emissions at a rate of 1/2500th of a second, you're assured of dynamic sports images and breathtaking fast action scenes rendered with stunning clarity.

1080p Full HD Resolution, Full HD 3D

Not only will you enjoy the ultimate 2D picture quality with Full 1080p HD resolution, but unlike many other 3D capable TVs, you'll also get full 1080p resolution in 3D mode. The 3D effect is created when the display works in concert with special 3D eyewear to send separate and slightly different images to each eye. This generally means that each eye is seeing an image with only half the normal picture resolution. But with Panasonic Full HD 3D and our Active Shutter Eyewear, each eye sees an image with Full 1080p resolution for a 3D experience of incredible depth and realism.
  • 3D eyewear is required for 3D images

2D to 3D Conversion — in Full HD 1080P

This advanced conversion technology turns virtually any 2D content into beautiful 3D with crisp, clear, life-like images. Even ordinary 2D TV broadcasts and recorded programs become riveting 3D content!

Electronic Touch Pen (optional accessory)

Our innovative Touch Pen allows you to interact with the TV in a variety of ways. You can use the screen as a virtual whiteboard and write memos to other members of the household. You can also edit pictures by adding captions or drawing right on the image. It's also great for playing games and operating apps.

VIERA Connect

VIERA Connect provides cloud-based access to Internet content to bring you Video-on-Demand (VOD), catch-up TV, games, educational content and much more ... all through a wide range of apps. It's a great way to enjoy virtually limitless content on your Smart VIERA HDTV.
  • Requires broadband Internet service.

Web Browser

Share and enjoy web content on the big screen, thanks to the HTML5 compatible browser featured in Smart VIERA HDTVs. It's just like the browser on your PC, but much better for sharing content with family and friends.

VIERA remote 2

VIERA remote 2 is a free app, available for download from any iOS or Android app store, that lets you use your smartphone or tablet device as a remote control for the TV, allowing you to not only change channels, inputs and adjust volume, but also adjust settings like Color, Brightness or Contrast. It also lets you use your mobile device as a second screen to view personal videos or pictures loaded to the TV via SD slot or USB port. Now you can share content with friends and family on your mobile device, even while broadcast programming continues to play on the big screen.
  • Requires iOS 5.0.1 or later, and Android
  • Requires a wireless LAN connection.

Wireless LAN Built-In

Thanks to built-in Wi-Fi, no additional equipment is needed to connect your VIERA TV with an existing wireless router on your home network. The TV will automatically detect available networks and take you through an easy setup process.

Media Player — Easily Play Content Saved in a Variety of Formats

You can easily transfer content from a USB device to enjoy on the big screen. You can add frames and other effects to your photos and videos, and create slideshows complete with background music. A wide variety of formats are supported, so you can listen to PC-based music files and view web movies right on your TV.
  • Applicable formats vary depending on the model.

DLNA — A Home Network Linking Your Entire House

A DLNA-compatible VIERA makes it easier than ever to enjoy your personal content by linking all of your devices in a smart home network. Now you can access the content stored on other devices on the network, regardless of where they're located in your home, and view them on your Smart VIERA TV.

Environment-Friendly Panel — Mercury and Lead Free

Panasonic is committed to making our products friendlier 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 — For Years of Beautiful Images

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 design innovations, 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.

Automatic Power Save & Eco Mode

Smart VIERA HDTVs are engineered to be eco-responsible. They conserve energy by automatically adjusting brightness depending on room conditions, and by powering down after brief periods of inactivity.

TC-P60ST60 is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still great, but not perfect. I love my ST60. The colors and deep blacks are still amazing. It does have a slight lag for playing video games, so it's not perfect. I hardly use 3D due to the lack of content on DirecTV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ST60series60"plasma I bought this tv to replace samsung50" plasma.This tv has a excellent picture.The blacks are really black it's the first thing I noticed. I wall mounted it with a close mount tv is 1.5" from wall this tv is really thin and looks great.I have only had TV for 5 days. I did watch 3D movie avatar the picture blew me away the glasses are a lot lighter than I thought they would be.I would highly recommend this tv.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Theater Quality in your Living Room The first time we turned on our new Smart VIERA® ST60 Series Full HD Plasma TV, our ten month old daughter was frightened— she thought Mickey Mouse was about to hop out of the screen! The picture quality is startlingly realistic and the colors have a lot of depth. Whilst watching action movies or anything with speed, the picture moves very quickly. In video games, it’s almost as if the players come to life, making the gaming experience that much more fun. Watching a football or baseball game is just like being at the stadium. Cartoons are also that much better and our children are even more enthralled with their favorite shows! Another great feature of this t.v. is the ability to use a smartphone application to make your cell phone or tablet into a secondary remote. With two kids in the house, the remote is constantly lost so this is a very convenient feature and it is just as simple to use as the remote. The Swipe and Share 2.0 is also a really cool feature—it allows the viewer to beam pictures from the phone or tablet right onto the t.v. screen in one easy swipe! This is really great for viewing pictures on the big screen when guests come over to see photos--no more huddling over a small phone or tablet screen. The Home Screen on the t.v. allows you to set up a custom screen for multiple viewers or users. Just like a computer, you select the user and your custom home screen will pop up with the features and apps of your choice. For example, you could use a different background picture and set up difference applications. Each user could choose from a multitude of apps- weather, news, sports, cartoons…etc. I love turning on the t.v. and getting the news and weather simultaneously on my home screen. There are many apps to choose from, just like a smartphone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing picture quality! First thing you notice when you unbox the TV is how stunning it looks. I love the nice clean lines and the whole look of this high end TV especially at midlevel pricing. It is a plasma TV, but it does not have that bulky look like other plasma TVs have. I am not big fan of their TV stand, but since I hung the TV on my wall, it did not bother too much. Setting up the TV and getting it up and running was very easy. I am loving Pana’s Smart TV set up and apps. It was pretty much self-explanatory regarding the initial setup. By the way, I’m loving the Netflix button on the remote control. I stream a lot and this makes it very convenient to get to the home screen. TV Smart suite has tons of different applications: useful and not very useful. I actually was able to stream internet TV (sports) through the app on the TV. You can also use your smart phone/tablet to control your TV. I found it pretty useful since we usually lose our remote control. I had some small minor technical difficulties connecting to the TV, but after I connected it, it was a smooth experience. You also can transfer pictures to your TV. I found it to be a pretty neat feature if you have guests over and you don’t want everyone crowding around your desktop screen. And of course… the picture quality. Simply, it is just mind blowing (especially for this price range). The black levels are amazing! These are the deepest blacks I have ever seen and blow LED’s black levels. Super sharp image, wonderful contrast and nice viewing angles. My living room gets a lot of sunlight, but that does not affect the TV’s picture quality and you still have a nice sharp image.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best upgrade ever: big box projection to this! Once you see the blacks and the clarity and the resolution, you will not be disappointed. I even assembled the stand and put the panel on it by myself! DO NOT TRY THIS! That was me being stupid. This unit has so many inputs and outputs that it will support any configuration you want to use it in. There was a tiny problem with the Audio Return Channel, but we do not watch much broadcast TV and the optical audio out made this all work, anyway. The price was incredible. Had enough budget left over to go ALL HDMI. (except for Nin game box, not Panasonic fault.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great picture! Great Value! This TV has a stunning picture, with one caveat: the "standard" viewing mode is much too dark with the factory settings. Beyond that, I don't have any major complaints. The "home theater" and "cinema" settings look marvelous in the factory mode, although I plan to use a calibration disk to set up everything. Unlike others, I have been able to turn off the sound for use with my surround sound system, but I have to confess I am not sure how it happened. I could not find an "external speakers only" check box. The TV just seemed to turn the internal speakers off by itself. They do play when I use the "self test" mode, but are turned off with the surround sound hooked up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Picture Excellent, Good Value, Kind of Ugly Visually, with the panel turned off - it is really ugly. It has a highly reflective shiny black bezel, surrounded by an even more reflective silver border. Our 9 y.o. Panny Plasma had a dull black border as do most flat panel sets. The reflective bezel is highly distracting unless you are able to watch in a fairly dark room. When it is sitting on the wall, the mirror like borders look weird. That said, if you want one of the best plasma pictures ever -this is the one to get. It is the best value for the money by far. This is our first "smart" TV. It is not ready for prime time. Other than the built-in Netflix app (which is perfect), other apps do not work properly. We called CS about the Facebook app. She said that, in effect doesn't work and we'd have to access it via the browser. Attempting to do that causes the browser to crash within 5 to 30 seconds of logging on to Facebook. Youtube does seem to work ok. Our internet is very fast - 20Mbs+. There are dozens of settings and ways for you to adjust the picture to your likings. As with all thin panels, you may want to think about getting external speakers. Contrary to other posts, you CAN turn off the built in speakers by turning the sound volume down to zero. Bottom line - If you want one of the best pictures and best value, get this model. If you want a handsome piece of furniture to hang on your wall, look at a diff. model.

  • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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.
