Energy Guide The Panasonic TC-L32DT30 32" Class VIERA DT30 Series 3D LED TV is yet another high-end display to ride the mounting tsunami of panels which turn traditional passive viewing into a completely interactive experience with radically immersive 3D technology. Cue up a 3D movie in your Blu-ray player and you're on your way. In fact, even if you don't have 3D content, the TC-L32DT30's powerful processor can render regular 2D content into simulated 3D on the fly. Just add high-precision 3D eyewear to add a new "dimension" to your favorite classics and 2D programs. You can even view JPEG photo slideshows stored on a thumbdrive, SD memory card or computer in 3D.

The sleek TC-L32DT30 is certainly going to attract attention even before you turn it on. With its Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution and Clear Panel, thanks to proprietary Infinite Black technology, it starts out with some spectacular specs. But then Panasonic has added feature upon feature to improve an already excellent picture. Its 3D Color Management feature improves the hue, saturation and brightness by precisely honing in on those colors that need correction while leaving others alone.

The TC-L32DT30 also has three USB ports from which it can play programming. You can also use one of the USB ports to plug in a USB wireless LAN adapter. The set is already Internet-ready; with its built-in RJ-45 jack you can plug directly into your broadband modem or via a router. Panasonic calls it VIERA Cast; you'll call it amazing. Imagine viewing YouTube and Picasa Web Albums on your TV with no PC or external boxes required! The built-in Web menu updates itself automatically as new content becomes available. The addition of Skype makes it possible to talk live to friends all over the world. Best of all you can talk for free as long as you want to anyone who's on Skype.

Finally, Energy Star qualified ensures that your TV will save you money while it helps preserve the environment.

Frame Sequential Technology
Panasonic uses Full-HD Frame Sequential technology to create its 3D images. Images recorded in 1920 x 1080 pixels for both the right-eye and the left-eye alternately flash on the screen at the ultra-high rate of 120 frames per second. When you view the screen through active-shutter glasses that open and close each lens in sync with the alternating images, you see breathtaking Full HD 3D pictures with stunning power and realism
New 3D LCD High-Speed Drive System
In order to maximize the LCD drive speed, Panasonic developed a high-speed drive system together with a new panel. This faster drive speed produces the high level 3D LCD image quality and minimal double images
3D Panel with High-Speed Response
Panasonic also further improved the IPS Panel's high-speed response. By narrowing the gap between cells and using a smoothly flowing liquid crystal material, it was possible to increase the response speed. As a result, 3D images, which require both left- and right-eye images, are rendered on the IPS Alpha Panel clearly and vividly
High-Precision 3D Eyewear Control Technology
Highly precise timing control for the opening and closing of the shutters minimizes unwanted light leakage to enable clear 3D viewing. The remarkable beauty of the Full HD 3D images is further ensured by employing a totally Panasonic system with both VIERA 3DTV and 3D Eyewear to achieve precisely linked operation
2D-3D Conversion
Unique Panasonic technology converts 2D images into high-quality 3D images in real-time. The technology generates a detailed depth effect for each type of image, so the 3D effect is natural and realistic. Use VIERA to enjoy Blu-ray movies, DVD movies and even ordinary TV broadcasts in 3D. The Super Resolution function allows images that were converted from 2D to 3D to be displayed in sharp, clear 3D while minimizing crosstalk. 3D images with crisp contours are also produced from 3D broadcasts using the side-by-side method
240Hz Motion Picture Pro5
In addition to IPS LED Alpha panel features such as inherent fast response, Panasonic has achieved sharp, clear motion images by precisely controlling the backlight. Previous frames shut out any interference to frames other than the one being rendered, to effectively reduce afterimages. Fast-moving scenes, such as those in sports and action films, are produced in intricate detail
Wide Viewing Angle
With VIERA's wide 178° viewing angle, you see clear, vibrant images from every seat in the room. The backlight features a wide transmission aperture that enhances contrast between light and dark and improves response to provide smooth motion images. Range at which the contrast ratio is 10:1 or higher
Brilliant Luminance and Superb Blacks
By combining the highly light-transmissive IPS Panel and high-brightness LED backlight, Panasonic has attained both high contrast and low power consumption. Also, by detecting the contrasting parts of the scene, the backlight is adjusted to maintain a brightness that is optimal for each area. Deep blacks are reproduced with virtually no fading. The contrast between the brilliance of diamond-like stars and the deep black of the night sky produces a sharp, crisp image
VIERA Connect
The exciting world of IPTV, centering on TV, is about to begin for the enjoyment of the entire family. Now you can enjoy intuitive remote control while relaxing on the living room sofa, with a wide variety of content at your fingertips. In the near future, TV will also be able to link with a tablet device to achieve completely new forms of entertainment that you've never before experienced
3D Image Viewer
It's easy to view 3D photos and movies you shot yourself on the big VIERA screen. After shooting with your 3D-compatible camera or camcorder, simply insert the SD card into the slot on a 3D-compatible VIERA TV. The viewing is incredible, with images so realistic it feels as though you're right back in the moment. You'll find that life's special moments are even more memorable when you preserve them in 3D
24p Smooth Film
VIERA gives you naturally flowing 24p images with the look and tonal characteristics of film, and familiar TV-like quality. This mode optimizes the number of frames of 24p images recorded from film sources onto media such as Blu-ray Discs. Panasonic's advanced source analysis and frame generation deliver smooth, natural images that are faithful to the original
DLNA / Wi-Fi Ready
Connect a DLNA-compatible VIERA and DLNA-compatible AV equipment to your home network, and you can watch movies, listen to music, and view photos from any room in the house. VIERA's Wi-Fi capability gives you even more layout flexibility
Game Mode
Games are much more fun when there's no lag in operation. VIERA automatically chooses settings that provide the optimal image, so you get super-fast response and no delays. Even dark scenes with delicately rendered details are beautiful and easy to see
VIERA Link
VIERA Link interlinks the operation of a variety of AV devices, so you can operate them all using only the VIERA remote control. Setup is easy simply connect the compatible devices to each other via HDMI cables
VIERA Tools
The VIERA Tools user interface makes it easy to access and understand key functions. Simply press a function button, and an explanation appears on the screen. Keep the button pressed to activate the function immediately

          Its basically a good set, good 2D and 3D picture and acceptable sound. I like the TV quite a bit, BUT Panasonic needs to better support their App store. Specifically they need to add Apps like a web browser, which is a major omission on the DT30 internet connected range in my opinion.

            Comments about Panasonic TC-L32DT30 32" Class VIERA DT30 Series 3D LED TV:

            This television has great reviews by folks in Europe but in the U.S. I see a lot of people stating that it doesn't work with HDMI which is incorrect. I'm currently using this Panasonic as a primary computer monitor via HDMI with an MSI N560GTX-Ti Twin Frozr II/OC video card micro-HDMI to HDMI adapter and I have no problems running at 1080p. As it stands, I have it hooked up to DirecTV, an Xbox 360, a PS3, & my i7 970 self-built computer all via HDMI. I have also hooked up my Macbook Air via a Displayport to HDMI adapter & have had no problems. An internet dongle & remote come in the box although I don't use the internet applications on the TV & don't use 3D, so I can't comment there. I replaced a Sharp 32" LC-32GP1U Gaming TV because it gave off too much heat & used more electricity than this new Panasonic does.It has pixel mapping & is a bit expensive although my 32" Sharp cost me $1200 in 2006 so prices are relative. If you really want that $280 42" 720p display from [@] with no pixel mapping you should get it but don't complain about this product because it wasn't designed for you. This is a niche product that only a handful of people will appreciate.The display is glossy so in a bright room you will see reflections, in a dark room it's perfect. The input lag on this gaming tv is negligible, I can play Borderlands, Halo Reach, and the Call of Duty series games on this tv & not get too much of a headache & still be able to play competitively.The only problem is that I wanted the 37" but that television is too difficult to find.Although this tv is expensive, you have to remember that you are buying technology. This TV can be used as a PC monitor over HDMI w/ no problems. It's competitors are the Dell 30" which costs about or the Apple 27" and both are smaller in size than this Panasonic but the resolutions are a bit higher. The trade off is 32 inches vs. higher resolutions for either the Dell or Apple monitor plus this Panasonic is a TV, NOT a stand alone monitor.Here are some other reviews for this Panasonic TC-L32DT30 32" tv.

            The picture quality and features of this television are very good. I think it offers a good home theater experience for a small bedroom, but I find the 3D capabilities of the system to be somewhat limited to certain angles. In a large space, the 3D could work, but in tighter quarters, you could lose the active signal very easily--at least it did in my case. Still I am happy with the model.
