PRODUCT OVERVIEW

Panasonic TCP50GT50 50" 1080p Plasma TV


PICTURE QUALITY

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.


Deeper Blacks Even in Bright Rooms
Infinite Black Pro

Enhancements to the panel and cells help reproduce images with smooth, natural gradation and deep, rich blacks - even when viewed in bright surroundings. In movies, the true, deep blacks faithfully convey the intent of the filmmakers, adding power and realism to the viewing experience.


Richer Black Details
24,576 Equivalent Steps of Gradation

Even highly nuanced black images in dark areas that were previously impossible to express are now rendered with incredible fidelity. Finer light emission due to a newly developed drive technology raises the steps of gradation by as much as four times over previous systems. Nighttime skies and other dark areas that were prone to blocked shadows are beautifully reproduced.

* When using Cinema mode.


Color Reproduction Faithful to the Original
1,080p Pure Direct

The 1,080p Pure Direct function transmits and outputs high-quality YUV 4:4:4 30-bit video signals directly to the TV. This reproduces colors that are highly faithful to the original.


Beautifully Reproduced Crisp Lines
Pure Image Creation

Diagonal lines and edges are detected with high precision in each scene for all types of images, and optimal correction is applied to achieve beautiful, highly natural, noise-free lines.


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.


Smooth Reproduction of Web Movies
Web Smoother

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.


Turn Your Living Room into a 3D Theater
THX® 3D Certified Display

In order to enjoy the original image quality of a movie, you need to have a display that portrays the images exactly as the movie’s creators intended. VIERA has cleared the high standards set by the THX Certified Display Program. It reproduces both 2D and 3D images with cinema-like quality. Enjoy beautiful images that are optimal for movies.

* THX and the THX logo are trademarks of THX Ltd. which are registered in some jurisdictions. The THX 3D logo is a trademark of THX Ltd. All rights reserved.

* Certification pending for the 65 inch and the 60 inch.


A New TV Sound Experience
3D Real Sound with 8-Train Speakers
Speaker System


8-Train Speakers

Eight dome-type microspeakers with reflectors deliver wide-ranging, high-quality sound. Only about 8 mm thick, these compact units also contribute to the beauty of the narrow-edge design.


Super Slim Sub-Woofer

The sub-woofer, which is mounted to the rear surface of the panel, delivers robust bass sounds. Its super slim design, with a thickness of only 22 mm, helps to keep the entire display attractively thin.


Sound Lifting Driver

Original Panasonic acoustic-field compensation technology produces highly accurate sound imaging. Matched to human auditory characteristics, the frequency for the bandwidth in which the sound is located is adjusted and the optimal compensation is applied.

ECO

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.


Design
Stylish Metal Frame

Both simple and stunning, the fine metal frame surrounds the stylish face of this TV and clearly delineates the images that float onto the screen.

Got a Great Deal on a TV with a Near-Perfect Picture

By: Paul Ritchie
Date: Thursday, January 17, 2013
I purchased this TV (to replace a Panasonic TC-P50ST2) because I wanted a TV that had ultimate picture quality performance. Specifically, I wanted a better black level than the TV I had, which was no slouch to begin with. The 50GT50 delivered 100%. It has all the settings and adjustments you'd expect in a better-model TV set. If you buy this TV, buy it for the exceptional picture quality, and you will not be disappointed. I have not tried to view any 3D content. Be advised that this TV does NOT come with 3D glasses. However, the basic picture is so lifelike and appears very 3D in it's own right, I really don't see much reason why anyone would feel the need to even buy them? The only place it falls flat is its Net-Connected features. I connected it to my WiFi, and it worked for several hours, but it won't reconnect after a power cycle. As a workaround, I used a cabled connection, which has proven to be reliable, but a little inconvenient. There is an Android App that can be used as both a game controller and a remote control. It's not intuitive, but the app communicates via wifi, so you'll need to connect the TV to your wifi (wireless or wired) to use the app. When I used it with this TV, the app continually crashes. I can't tell if it's the TV, the network, or the app, though all suspicions suggest the TV is to blame. The Panasonic manual specifically calls out compatibility with a "Game Controller". However, Panasonic does not actually sell a game controller for this TV, and when I called their customer service to purchase one, they admitted that even though page 144 did in-fact say you could use a game controller with the TV, they had no idea which ones would be compatible, or where to buy one. It's not like there are a huge number of apps available on the TV anyway, but I did find a few interesting ones that were suitable to kill some time. However, playing action games using an InfraRed remote control is not optimal, because it has an unpredictable delay. Again, it's a TV, not a game console. This weakness is not a deal breaker. But I can't figure out why they included the feature in the first place, and apparently neither can Panasonic Customer Support? The only network features I will give them high marks for are that Netflix and Amazon Prime work very well. There's even a dedicated button on the remote that goes directly to Netflix. I definitely recommend this TV to anyone wanting a top-notch home theater experience. Just don't expect it to replace your PS3 or XBOX.

Panasonic 50GT50 Plasma

By: Martin Butt
Date: Tuesday, June 19, 2012
I can recommend Paul's TV for purchases. Very fast delivery, very careful shipping and easy to deal with online. Panasonic Plasma is a great TV. I shopped for LED TV around 50". After much looking, we looked at Plasma and are very impressed with the current generation. LED TV does not match the picture quality in my view. The Panasonic GT series offers an excellent picture with very fast refresh rate. We were concerned it would be 'warm' in our enclosure cabinet. But it is not warm. Our previous 37" LG LCD seemed just as warm. Internet feature is easy to use. We haven't tried the 3D feature. I learned buyers often prefer the Logitech Universal Remote to TV remotes including Panasonic's remote.

Works Great

This is my fourth Panasonic Plasma but my first 3D TV. I also bought two packages that contained two of the Medium Size glasses, TY-ER3D4 each for a total of four glasses. I have Comcast and they have a lot of free 3D movies. It is kind of tricky to make 3D work but once it is working it is fine. I think that it will just take practice. These glasses are Bluetooth (radio waves). The previous generation was infrared. I can see why Bluetooth is much better. "Line of Sight" like in infrared does not have to be maintained with radio waves. Here is something weird. It is in a bright room. If the three D is working then looking out a window on a sunny day is freaky. The shutter action is obvious. You will have to close the curtains for using three D. Picture and sound are great. Also this thing is light and easy to put together. I have a 48 inch wide opening. Techincally there is not enough clearance on the side but it is in an open non-enclosed area and there is no heat build up. A fifty inch set in a 48 inch opening! Not many widescreen TV's can do that. Not up to the specified clearance but it works for me. The inputs are sideways. I may get new HDMI cables that have a right angle plug. Maybe... You cannot really see the cables when in use. For those with Panasonic Plasma familiarity here is the summation: Very beautiful when off, Nice solid stand that does allow the screen to rotate. Very thin. Very light. Great sound and picture. The three D works. I am going to have to decide if I like it or not enough to use routinely. Comcast does have a sports channel in 3D. Sports are really much better in 3D. I think that is where I will use it primarily. Charging the glasses is very easy. It uses an included micro USB plug in the glasses box (micro not the mini). I used a combo of computer USB connections and also the one that comes with the iPod for charging. The glasses are very light. They are "medium" and I wear an XL motorcycle helmet but they fit over my glasses easily. This product easily exceeded my expectations.
