Panasonic DMP-BDT500 overview

  • 1Description

Take your home theater experience to the next level with Panasonic's DMP-BDT500 Smart Network 3D Blu-Ray Disc Player. Feature-rich and built to wow, this showpiece is more than a Blu-ray player. While it pairs seamlessly with any HDTV, it also features Skype video calling, online streaming, support for interactive movie extras, and it even lets you kick back and use your iPhone as a remote control.

You can rely on the DMP-BDT500 to deliver stunning high resolution images in full HD 1080p as well as 3D content to create an immersive, wraparound experience in your own living room. Whether it's the latest Blockbuster hit on Blu-ray or a classic film on DVD, this disc player is capable of providing rich, vivid images fine tuned with Panasonic's PHL processing. And to give you the full cinematic experience, it supports several high resolution audio formats from Dolby and DTS so you can enjoy a detailed sound field whether you have a surround sound system or just two speakers.

One of the DMP-BDT500's biggest boasts is that it has twin HDMI outputs for audio and video. This means you can hook it up to a legacy A/V receiver and still enjoy 3D video with HD audio soundtracks simultaneously, even if your receiver lacks HDMI ports.

High Grade Audio Parts
High-precision audio processing by four independent 192kHz, 32-bit audio DACs for 7.1-channel sound ensure minimal noise. Highly durable corrosion-resistant gold-plated terminals maintain the high sound quality. The same high-grade capacitors found in top-class audio components are used for the signal and power supply circuits. The result is substantially less distortion, with smooth high frequencies and deep, rich bass. Insulators suppress housing vibration, greatly reducing noise interference and enabling faithful reproduction even of weak signal nuances that might otherwise be masked by vibration
Full HD 3D Blu-ray Disc Playback
The advanced 2D image technologies of the Panasonic Hollywood Laboratory have also been applied to 3D image playback, providing high quality images of the film that is approaching that of film. Lifelike 3D for beautifully reproduced images that leap off the screen with enhanced depth, luster and texture
Adaptive Chroma Processing
Adaptive chroma processing is a high quality image-processing technology developed to precisely process each pixel of Blu-ray disc video signals in the vertical and horizontal directions. Vertical color data has been increased 1.5 times (compared with 2010 models), allowing adaptive chroma processing to reproduce color data more faithfully than ever before
2D-3D Conversion
Enables conversion of 2D images on DVDs and Blu-ray discs into 3D images with natural depth perception. Screen type (flat or round), and frame color are easily selectable. Watch your prized DVD movie collection in 3D for even greater viewing enjoyment. The new 2012 models can also convert content from VIERA Connect into 3D images of stunning depth
24p Output for VOD
The Blu-ray disc players and home theaters not only play Blu-ray discs and DVDs, but also video-on-demand movies content in the same 24p format as used at movie theaters. Connection to a 24p capable TV via an HDMI cable lets you enjoy a wide array of content with full cinematic picture quality
VIERA Connect
This new platform not only offers users greater convenience but greatly enhances enjoyment as well. Now, you can enjoy an even wider variety of Internet content with family and friends from the comfort of your living room
Skype Functions
Record an original message and use it as your answering video message. The message will play automatically when you receive a phone call while you are away
Video Voice Mail Recording
Callers can record messages while you are away onto an SD memory card so you can watch the messages when you return home
DLNA-certified Blu-ray disc players and home theaters are easy to use with your home network. Share and enjoy digital photos (JPEG), music (MP3, WMA) and videos (AVCHD, WMV) by simply connecting to a home network (LAN). For example, you can install a special app on your smartphone and use it to access a DLNA-certified PC via a Wi-Fi router in another room. The PC works as a DLNA server where your collection of movies, photos and videos is stored. You can access, browse and view media stored on the server while in another room without having to worry about shuffling discs
External HDD Playback
The 2012 Blu-ray disc players and home theaters are compatible with NTFS (NT File System) format external hard disk drives, so you can enjoy music (FLAC, MP3), photos (JPEG, MPO), and camcorder video content (AVCHD, MP4) archived on an external HDD
