My Home Screen provides instant access to your favorite Smart TV contents. The My Home Screen menu leads you to a wide variety of content in addition to TV, including smart apps, an Internet web browser, videos and photos. It provides complete access to everything as soon as you turn on the TV.
Selectable Apps
Selectable apps available from the My Home Screen menu include: Clock, Calendar, Weather, Reminder, RSS, Memo, YouTube, Skype, Facebook and more.
Voice Guidance
SMART VIERA Voice Guidance uses text to speech functions to verbalize text contents on TV. It works well for verbally reading out program information, SNS messages and web page contents.
Full HD 1920 x 1080p 3D Resolution
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 your left and right eye. By repeating this action at high speed, the brain perceives 3D images. Plus, since the TV is compatible with a 1080p 3D signal and the panel has Full HD 1920 x 1080p native resolution, you'll enjoy Full HD 3D images. Two pairs of 3D eyewear are even included.
2D to 3D Conversion in Full HD 1080p Resolution
With advanced 2D to 3D conversion technology, you can turn virtually any 2D content into crisp and clear Full HD 3D images. It allows you to turn ordinary TV broadcasts and recorded programs into exciting 3D content.
3000 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.
Infinite Black Pro Ultra
Enhancements to the panel and cells help reproduce images with smooth, national 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 realism to the viewing experience.
VIERA Connect Cloud-Based Internet Content Access
VIERA Connect provides cloud-based Internet content access. It brings you video-on-demand (VOD), catch-up TV, games, educational content and more - all through a wide range of apps. It affords virtually limitless content consumption from the comfort of your living room.
Built-In Wi-Fi with Easy-to-Understand Wireless LAN Settings
With built-in Wi-Fi, no additional equipment is needed to connect with an existing wireless router in your home network. Your Panasonic TV will automatically detect available networks and take you through an easy Wi-Fi setup process.
DLNA Certified
This DLNA-compatible TV makes content easy to share by linking equipment over a home network. Enjoy photos, movies, music and more in the living room, bedroom or any room in the house.
VIERA Remote 2 App
VIERA Remote 2 is a free app available for download to compatible iOS and Android mobile devices. It lets you use a smartphone or tablet as a second screen for watching private content or controlling the TV and adjusting TV settings. It provides intuitive tap and flick-based commands. Plus, it supports easy functions like Swipe & Share 2.0, which make the TV easier to use.
Swipe & Share 2.0
With Swipe & Share 2.0, you can use a one finger swipe to share and transfer video, photos, music contents and web pages between the TV and your smart devices by linking a smartphone or tablet to Panasonic's Smart VIERA TV. You can also share content with friends and family. With a two finger swipe, you can easily save video, photos, music contents and web pages.
USB Media Player & SDXC Card Reader
Thanks to the dual USB ports, you can use a USB memory stick to enjoy previously saved music, photos and video clips using the TV. You can also add frames and other effects to your photos and videos, as well as create slide shows complete with background music. A wide variety of formats are supported, so you can play PC-based music files and Web movies right on your TV. You can also use the SDXC memory card reader for playing media files.
C.A.T.S. (Contrast Automatic Tracking System)
The C.A.T.S (Contrast Automatic Tracking System) feature automatically adjusts screen brightness according to ambient light. When the room darkens, it lowers the screen brightness and adjusts the image quality, resulting in both easier viewing and power conservation.
Mercury & Lead Free Eco-Friendly Panel
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.
Long Panel Life up to 100,000 Hours
Thanks to an innovative phosphor process and rear panel process, this plasma panel will last for up to 100,000 hours before the brightness decreases by half.

        Comments about Panasonic 65" SMART VIERA VT60 Series Full HD Plasma TV:

        This is the best TV I have ever seen. I am using in my media room, which is dark so I can't comment on how it works in a bright room and it's connected to a 7.1 surround system, so I didn't care abut the TV's sound either but the picture, after a few minor tweaks, is absolutely the best I have ever seen. With this setup, I have no issues with glare or reflections either. I replaced an older Mitsubishi 65" screen and there is no comparison. I also have a couple of LED screens in other rooms and this one blows them away with better clarity, truer colors, clear motion with no blur and the blackest blacks.

        I use another (RF) remote so I can't comment on that either.

              If you haven't seen one of these do yourself a favor and go see what a TV should look like...my father couldn't fathom why I was spending this kind of money for a TV that was going out of production...the first movie I played on this TV and BOOM he'll tell his friends about this is the best TV he's ever watched and the black levels are unreal...cause they really are.

                Comments about Panasonic 65" SMART VIERA VT60 Series Full HD Plasma TV:

                Since Panasonic is ceasing production of it's amazing plasma displays this year, I decided to pull the trigger on this TV and I couldn't be happier. I was upgrading from a TC-42PX50U display, which I already thought looked great, and the difference is striking! Once correctly calibrated using the CNET recommendations, the picture is so clear & vivid creating a depth to the picture. There is almost a "3D" quality to it without using the actual 3D feature. The best way I can describe it is like watching through a window...it's that clear. Can't comment on the 3D feature set as I haven't used it yet, nor the speakers since I'm using my 5.1 Polk audio. However, if that's what you're focusing on, you're missing the point. I truly believe this is the best 2D picture you can get right now, short of the OLED displays costing 5x as much. B&H offered this set at a great price and quick convenient delivery through ABF. Long story short, this is a very satisfied customer.

                Overall, this is a great TV. Stunning looks and excellent picture. However, it has only 3 HDMI inputs and one shared component/composite input (one or the other). Not a big deal, but for the price they could have included at least one more HDMI.

                  This TV has been excellent! It was an upgrade to a smaller Panasonic plasma (42") that also performed brilliantly. The picture is unbelievable and setup is a breeze. I couldn't be happier so far! Amazing blacks, a feeling of depth you just completely lose in an LED, and a smoothness to action scenes that looks much more natural than other TVs. The only picture I've seen that comes close is from OLED, which costs 5x more. Highly recommended! Definitely heavy (90lbs), but the $90 RocketFish mount seems to be handling it well.

                  Picture quality wise this TV is *AWESOME*. I like the Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu software integration. The other SmartTV apps are somewhat gimicky.

                  I saw reviews the sound was OK. I disagree. It has a 20 watt sound system integrated and I think its just fine. I did buy a Onkyo theatre system with it. Haven't hooked that up yet as I need to get a different TV stand to hold the TV and the Onkyo. I do expect the Onkyo to have better sound than the TV but still think the TV has good sound available OOTB.

                  Sorry to know that Plasmas are on the way out. I bought the TV for the screen quality not the apps.

                    Comments about Panasonic 65" SMART VIERA VT60 Series Full HD Plasma TV:

                    As my headline sums it up, this is simply the best picture quality I have seen on an HDTV set, better than all LCD/LED TVs and the best Plasma currently available. I've used the picture settings from CNET for the VT60 and I am simply blown away. The black is truest black I have seen and the quality of the images is astounding. You see every detail and lose no quality in shadows or dark scenes once calibrated properly. However, the included THX Cinema mode is pretty close to awesome as well. Glare during daytime is somewhat distracting on this set since it is a glass panel and very glossy, but I have this in a dedicated theater room with theater black out curtains up so my light sources are controlled. The quality of the picture on this is just amazing, definitely worth every penny and I'm glad I bought this before Panasonic discontinued it. Even no lag for video games thanks to the plasma panel.

                    This is a really heavy TV, so two people will be needed to put on the stand or wall mount it.

                    Granted 4K TVs offer a higher resolution, but there are no native 4K sources and the human eye cannot really tell the difference at most distances on a 55" or 60" unless you have an 80" 4K TV, but those are $25,000!

                    If you have the opportunity to pick up a Panasonic VT60, do it while you can, or you will regret it. Simply amazing.

                    Comments about Panasonic 65" SMART VIERA VT60 Series Full HD Plasma TV:

                    I have owned a Panasonic Plasma for over 3 years and this is now my second. I have also owned, LCD, LED's, and DLP's as a comparison. After searching high and low for a comparable thin screened LED, none can touch the Pana Plasma's for the money, especially now that they are closing them out and on sale. B&H were excellent in their delivery with zero issues. The 65" is a big TV so make sure you have some extra hands around for moving it around and hanging. I'll spare you all the details about the TV itself, any searches with show you how good this TV is. We are using in our downstairs media room and have is currently connected to a PS4. The gaming is great in 1080p and 65"!!

                    After scouting around and wading through so many product reviews I settled on this TV. This TV over delivers in terms of picture quality, its like looking through a window the definition is so clear you are waiting to feel the breeze or smell! Set up was easy and the service from B&H made this a such an easy purchase. There are lots of folks who sell but B & H is my new favorite.
