Arguably the Best of 2013
The Panasonic ST60 series of plasma TVs may be the best television ever built. CNET has given the ST60 their first ever 5-star TV reviews; this feat alone speaks volume. This Panasonic plasma TV is not your everyday plasma; it has an outstanding picture quality for a very affordable midlevel price. The picture quality rivals top-tier flat-panel TVs. The critics over at CNET aren’t your everyday viewers, they’re tough critics. The ST60 doesn’t focus on Smart TV or 3D TV features, it focuses on what matters to everyone-great picture quality at an affordable price. The ST60 is also available in 50", 55", and 65" models.
This year’s ST series of Panasonic plasma TVs features technology that is generally received for flagship, or top-tier, priced flat-panel TVs. The ST60 is fully equipped with an Infinite Black Pro panel, fast switching phosphors, and Panasonic’s exclusive 2,500 Focused Field Drive technology to give you a crisp and clear picture regardless of content or the room’s ambient light. The ST60 also has a few more features that enhance its functionality like VIERA Connect, built-in Wi-Fi, a web browser, and much more.

Full HD Active 3D
3D is more immersive when you watching it from the comfort of your own home on your Panasonic 60" Plasma TV. Panasonic plasma displays use active 3D technology; this technology doesn’t filter any lines of resolution, leaving you with a Full HD 3D picture. To help counteract 3D judder and crosstalk, that’s inherent to active 3D technology, Panasonic has included their 3D Motion Remaster Technology. This technology employs special algorithms to reduce the time lag seen between the left and right 3D images – this is especially noticeable when two 3D objects "seemingly" crash into each other, when they’re actually crossing paths. 3D Motion Remaster accurately increases perceived depth to create lifelike 3D images.
2D to 3D Conversion
The TC-P60ST60 plasma TV features advanced conversion technologies that turn virtually all of your 2D content into beautiful 3D. With 2D to 3D conversion, your library of 3D content is nearly endless. Your media library, ordinary broadcasts, even your personal photos and videos can be converted to 3D.
Infinite Black Pro Panel
The Panasonic ST60 series panel generates deeper, truer blacks and it incorporates a Louver filter with fast switching phosphors. The Infinite Black filter prevents light loss in the panel cells – even in brightly lit rooms; dark scenes and fine textures are rendered with precise detail. The Louver filter allows the plasma TV to adjust the display’s brightness in proportion to the light in the room. Finally, the reformulated fast switching phosphors increase the overall luminous effect and minimizes afterglow – this reduces double image and displays clear, detailed 3D images.
Full HD 1080p Resolution
True greatness is in the detail and with Full HD 1080p resolution you’ll see why bigger is better. The Panasonic TCP60ST60 will remind you why you wanted a high-definition TV in the first place. Now all of your content, even personal media can look its absolute best.
600Hz Sub-Field Drive
Are you having a hard time reading the sports or news tickers? Tired of blurry jerseys and jittery motion? 600Hz Sub-Field Drive will help you with those troubles. Panasonic VIERA Plasma TVs are really fast, the images shown on-screen are created 60 times per second, with 10 sub-fields per frame (60 x 10 = 600). This blazing fast speed gives the 60" Panasonic TV a crisp, clear, and sharp image – even during high speed action scenes.
2,500 Focused Field Drive
The previously mentioned panel technologies all lead up to this one fantastic idea, Panasonic’s original 2,500 Focused Field Drive technology. This technology allows you to enjoy crisp, clear images, even during high-speed actions scenes, on your 60" Panasonic TV. The TC-P60ST60 plasma TV detects image movements like the human eye, and the TV’s sub-field controller optimizes light emissions at a rate of 1/2500th a second…that’s blazing fast and extremely accurate! This Panasonic plasma TV guarantees dynamic sports images and breathtaking fast action scenes rendered with stunning clarity.
With the DLNA enabled TC-P60ST60, sharing content is as easy as connecting all of your devices to your home network, wired or wireless. All of the content stored across these devices on your home network can be accessed and viewed right on your Panasonic Smart VIERA TV, regardless of where they’re located in your home.
