Even before you turn it on, the crystal frame design of the Panasonic Smart Viera 50" Class GT50 Series Full HD Plasma HDTV enhances your environment by simply being a beautiful object. It's when you fire it up, however, that it becomes obvious that the TC-P50GT50 is at the frontier of a flat panel breakthrough which turns traditional passive viewing into a completely interactive experience with a radically immersive element: 3D.
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 high speed. 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. And this TV is also THX 3D Certified, meaning that it meets rigorous standards that assure you that a movie is displayed exactly as its creator intended.
"Vividness," is the key word in the TC-P50GT50's design. Besides 3D, 2,500 Focused Field Drive technology ensures action with striking clarity while gamers will appreciate the 1,080 lines of moving-picture resolution coupled with Game Mode which optimizes contrast and sharpness and accelerates image processing. And speaking of gaming, downloading games from Viera Connect Market allows you to utilize your tablet or smart phone as a game pad as well as a remote control for browsing the web. And you can do it wirelessly thanks to the TC-P50GT50's built-in WiFi.
If you're short of space, or you just prefer an uncluttered room, you'll appreciate the 3D Real Sound with 8-Train Speakers. Panasonic employs acoustic-field compensation technology to match the soundtrack's frequency to human auditory characteristics. Eight small speakers with reflectors create surround effects enhanced by a super-slim subwoofer that adds rumble, thunder and realistic base notes to your programming. You can listen to music or view video and photos downloaded from an on-line source or from an SD card or USB drive thanks to the TC-P50GT50's convenient ports. Your TV's wide connectivity also includes 4 HDMI inputs as well as component composite and optical inputs.
And if you have questions about this incredible entertainment hub, Panasonic has answers. Just press the eHELP button on your included remote control for details as well as FAQs about peripheral devices and operating instructions.
Finally, not only is your TV eco-friendly, thanks to the elimination of mercury and lead, but it's loaded with energy-saving features like auto shut-off and Intelligent Auto Standby that continue to save you money and reduce your carbon footprint long after your purchase.
Enjoy the Ultimate 3D Experience Via Active Shutter Progressive 3D Method
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 the left and right eyes. By repeating this action at high speed, the brain perceives 3D images. And because this method displays Full HD 3D images just as they are, both eyes receive 3D images in high, full-HD quality.
Panasonic Full HD 3D
Your TV is compatible with a 1080p 3D signal and has a native resolution of 1920 x 1080p.
Crisp, Clear Moving Pictures - 2,500 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 - Deeper Blacks Even in Bright Rooms
Enhancements to the panel and cells help reproduce images with smooth, natural 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 power and realism to the viewing experience.
Richer Black Details - 24,576 Equivalent Steps of Gradation
Even highly nuanced black images in dark areas that were previously impossible to express are now rendered with incredible fidelity. Finer light emission due to a newly developed drive technology raises the number of steps of gradation by as much as four times over previous systems. Nighttime skies and other dark areas that were prone to blocked shadows are beautifully reproduced.
1,080p Pure Direct - Color Reproduction Faithful to the Original
The 1,080p Pure Direct function transmits and outputs high-quality YUV 4:4:4 30-bit video signals directly to the TV. This reproduces colors that are highly faithful to the original.

Diagonal lines and edges are detected with high precision in each scene for all types of images, and optimal correction is applied to achieve beautiful, highly natural, noise-free lines.
Vivid Color Creation - Expressive, Lifelike Colors

Web Smoother - Smooth Reproduction of Web Movies
The blurring that often happens in web images is eliminated to produce naturally smooth motion.
2D-3D Conversion - Easily Convert 2D Images into 3D
Unique Panasonic technology converts 2D images into high-quality 3D images in real time. The image depth is analyzed from the compositional, color and brightness data of each scene, to convert 2D images into naturally beautiful 3D images. In addition to ordinary TV programs, this method can be used to convert a variety of 2D images such as web content, Blu-ray Disc media, photos and movies saved onto SD Memory Cards into 3D images with a high level of precision.
3D 24p Cinema Smoother - Movie Content with Smooth Playback

THX 3D Certified Display - Turn Your Living Room into a 3D Theater

A New TV Sound Experience - 3D Real Sound with 8-Train Speakers
Eight dome-type microspeakers with reflectors deliver wide-ranging, high-quality sound. Only about 0.31" (8.0 mm) thick, these compact units also contribute to the beauty of the narrow-edge design.
Super Slim Subwoofer
The subwoofer, which is mounted to the rear surface of the panel, delivers robust bass sounds. Its super slim design, with a thickness of only 0.86" (22 mm), helps to keep the entire display attractively thin.
Sound Lifting Driver
Original Panasonic acoustic-field compensation technology produces highly accurate sound imaging. Matched to human auditory characteristics, the frequency for the bandwidth in which the sound is located is adjusted and the optimal compensation is applied.

Panasonic is committed to making products more friendly to the environment. In line with this commitment, 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 - Years of Beautiful Images
One important way consumers can protect the environment is by choosing high-quality products and taking care of them so they last for a long time. A high-quality Viera HDTV can help.

That's more than 30 years of viewing eight hours a day.
