For great 3D High Definition picture, sound and interactivity, the Panasonic Viera TC-P55VT30 is a super option. A 55 inch class Plasma flat panel HD TV, the TC-P55VT30 provides cutting edge quality active 3D video and sound for any 2D video source and superior 3D performance on native 3D content. With its video sampling producing 1080p High Definition resolution at 1200 pixels per second, 2D to 3D conversion and virtual surround sound, this 3D HDTV delivers cinematic full High Definition.
The TC-P55VT30 ships with one pair of active shutter 3D glasses so you can enjoy the 3D experience immediately. However, if you plan on sharing the experience also plan on buying another pair or two of the 3D glasses. If you don’t, someone will take over the pair you get with the set. Why spoil the 3D fun wrestling over the glasses. Just avoid confrontations and add them to your order.
This Panasonic Plasma 3D-ready HDTV picture is certified for a true 3D THX cinematic experience when used with the included Panasonic active shutter 3D glasses. For the whole family to view, you will need to purchase additional pairs of Panasonic’s 3D Active Shutter Glasses (TY-EW3D10U) separately. The contrast in brightly lit locations has been significantly improved with smooth transitions and deep, rich blacks. The 55.1 inch (diagonal) screen runs Panasonic’s 600Hz Sub Field Drive technology to eliminate motion blur and render full action video at the high standard of 1200 pixels per second. This is especially important in sports and action sequences. Panasonic’s, Game Mode prioritizes fast response to meet the demands demanded by modern games.
Panasonic uses full high definition Frame Sequential technology to create its 3D images. When you view the screen through active shutter glasses you see spectacular full HD 3D pictures with stunning power and realism. There is an SD card slot included for use with the Viera Image Viewer. This function can let you view H.264 (.mp4) video you recorded yourself with 3D playback. It will also let you convert and view 2D digital images in 3D. Those vacation pictures to the beach will be all too realistic now!
The audio features provide an immersive virtual surround sound experience from the TC-P55VT30’s 6-watt dual speakers and 10-watt woofer. The improved 2.1 speaker system brings superb sound to 3D video. The speaker layout produces clear, high quality highs and dynamic, fuller bass output. The dual speakers face front to provide clear highs, while the boxed woofer bellows from behind the set to improve the TV’s bass performance. Shipping with a volume leveling feature, the set automatically adjusts volume control for spikes during channel surfing or commercials.
Viera Connect, or Internet Protocol Television (IPTV), is the main application for streaming Internet entertainment to the Panasonic TC-P55VT30. Using the intuitive remote control, video and music internet streaming content as well as social application widgets for Facebook, Twitter, etc. are accessible through the TC-P55VT30. It can also run Skype in full with a compatible camera/microphone (sold separately). You will of course need to connect to your home network via the included wireless transmitter USB dongle or the wired LAN port.
The TC-P55VT30 has just a 2 3/8 inch thickness when wall mounted. The panel display is seamless, edge-to-edge glass with its “one sheet of glass” design. When using the included stand this 3D HDTV will be nearly 16 inches deep on a table top or entertainment stand and will weigh in at nearly 99 pounds. Weighing 85 pounds without its stand and having a 52 3/8 inch wide cabinet, you will definitely need assistance to get this 55 inch beauty placed on a wall or stand.
The Panasonic TC-P55VT30 TV features quick and easy channel setup with the on-screen menu and the intuitive remote control. You can begin to watch TV programs or movies in minutes. To watch video in 3D you will need to use the included Panasonic active shutter 3D glasses. Additional pairs will be needed for the whole family to view 3D content at the same time so they must be purchased separately.
Both analog and digital component connections are available and positioned on the rear and side of the TC-P55VT30. The Panasonic’s connections include four side mounted HDMI ports for your High Definition content video devices. There are two side mounted USB ports as well.

The wired local area connection and digital optical audio output connections are also on the lower input bar. This HDTV recognizes digital audio, video and image formats automatically, and includes an SD card slot. Using the SD card slot you can watch your homemade movies or images in 3D – a nice plus.

Actual User Reviews:
• “I have owned a few HDTVs over the last 10 years including a rear projection CRT, JVC HD-ILA, Samsung DLP and Sony LCD. This has by far the best picture of any. The blacks are deep, colors are vivid and the contrast is excellent. The setup was a breeze and the Vieracast was pretty straightforward to navigate. I have this as part of a home theater so I really can’t comment on the speaker quality and output range.” – C.Humeniuk (USA)
• “The quality of the picture is excellent! The preset picture modes are great. There is a custom mode in case you want to tweak the picture. Setting up the wi-fi Viera Cast and web apps was a breeze. I decided on this Plasma after reading about the picture issues with LED TV and I am extremely happy I went with this Plasma. It is thinner than you would expect for a Plasma this size.” – H.Alanis (USA)
• “We couldn’t be happier with our new TV. It was very easy to setup and we have enjoyed watching movies, sports and all the other “junk” out there in TV land. I went to several major stores (Best Buy, Fry’s Electronics, etc..) and all of the sales people raved about the Panasonic VIERA Plasma TV. I was able to find the best price on Amazon and am very satisfied with the entire process.” – Chandler (USA)
