Arguably the Best of 2013
The Panasonic ST60 series of plasma TVs may be the best televisions ever built. CNET has given the ST60 their first ever 5-star TV reviews; this feat alone speaks volumes. 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 available in 50", 55", and 60" 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 65" 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
With the TCP65ST60 65" plasma TV, you have a nearly endless amount of 3D content. The Panasonic HDTV's advanced conversion technology creates a 3D image with virtually any 2D content. Ordinary broadcasts, your media library, even your personal photos and movies can be seen in beautiful 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 TCP65ST60 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
What’s 60 x 10? 600! In the time it took you to solve the math problem your 65" Panasonic TV just created 600 images. That’s really fast! With 600Hz Sub-Field Drive technology, 60 frames per second (60Hz) with 10 sub-fields per frame, your image will be crisp and clear with optimum sharpness regardless of content.
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 65" Panasonic TV. The TC-P65ST60 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.
Now it’s easier to view all of your personal content on your DLNA-compatible TCP65ST60 Smart VIERA TV. All you need is an existing home network and sharing files between devices is as easy as connecting all of your devices on your network, wired or wireless, and accessing the files from your Smart VIERA TV.
Panasonic includes a media player with a surplus of features unlike anything you’ve seen on a television to date. The TCP65ST60’s USB based media player allows you to edit your personal videos and photos in real time from your TV; you can add a frame to a photo or video, and you can even create a slideshow with background music. The media player also supports a wide range of formats, so you can listen to PC-based music and view web movies right on your 65" plasma TV.
Swipe & Share 2.0
Swipe & Share 2.0 makes it even easier to transfer your favorite content from your tablet or Smartphone to your TV so you can share it with your friends and family. The days of huddling around a 4.5" – 7" screen so you can share your favorite home video with friends and family are over. Simply swipe your finger across the media, on your smartphone or tablet, towards your Panasonic plasma TV and it’ll show up on the big screen. You can also swipe content from your TCP65ST60 "back" to your mobile device and take it where ever you go. It’s as easy as a swipe of your finger to transfer photos, videos, and even music to your 65" plasma TV.
VIERA Remote 2 App
Unlock new and fun ways to control and interact with your 65" plasma TV when you download the free Panasonic VIERA Remote Application – available from any iOS and Android store. It turns your mobile device into a fully functional remote control that can even work as a second screen for viewing personal media from a USB or SD card attached to your TV without interrupting the current program. The VIERA Remote Application allows you to adjust picture settings, as well as change the channel and volume.
2 Pairs of Active 3D Glasses Included
Along with your 65" Panasonic 3D plasma TV, you’ll receive 2 pairs of comfortable, stylish 3D glasses. The 3D glasses are lightweight to give you hours of comfortable 3D viewing with family and friends.
Electronic Touch Pen (Optional)
The Panasonic Electric Touch Pen releases the artist in you right onto your TCP65ST60. The touch pen turns your VIERA TV into a 65-inch Post-it pad. You can leave messages and memos to members of the household on the first appliance that gets turned on when they get home. You can even edit images by drawing or writing right on the picture; once you finish editing the image you can use Swipe & Share 2.0 and save it to your mobile device. The electronic pen is also useful for operating various applications and playing games.
Long Panel Life
One way you can help protect the environment is by selecting high-quality products and taking care of them so they last a long time. High quality VIERA TVs help; thanks to innovative designs, Panasonic’s plasma panels last for up to 100,000 hours before the brightness decreases. That’s more than 30 years of use for 8 hours per day.
Join Panasonic’s pledge to reducing their negative impact on the planet with their products. Panasonic TC-P65ST60 VIERA plasma display panels are free of mercury and lead, reducing the impact on the environment once it’s time for you to recycle or retire your TV from use.
Automatic Power Save
Panasonic Smart VIERA TVs are engineered to be good for the environment and your pockets. VIERA TVs conserve energy by automatically adjusting the brightness of the display depending on room conditions, and powering down after periods of inactivity.
