Last year we found that using the 10 point Gamma controls could introduce unwanted artefacts but there appeared to be no such issues this year. The two and ten point White Balance controls meant that we could fine tune the RGB Tracking and the resulting greyscale is essentially perfect, with errors that are all less than one. The accuracy of the colour gamut was immediately improved by the reference greyscale, with white now measuring exactly at D The CMS allows for control of the Luminance, Colour and Hue of the three primary colours red, green and blue and the three secondary colours cyan, magenta and yellow and as a result we were able to fine tune the colour accuracy to a Panasonic Viera TX-P65VT50J TV standard.

The overall errors are now all less than one and the errors in all the other categories are also less than one, with the exception of a tiny amount of under saturation in the colours of both red and magenta. However this is an absolutely fantastic performance and this is simply one of the most accurate pictures we have measured. Above is a new graph that we have recently added to our reviews thanks to the latest CalMAN5 beta software and its enhanced features.

Panasonic TC-PVT50 review: Panasonic TC-PVT50 - CNET

We've only measured the saturation tracking on a few TVs so far, so we're still building up a picture of the comparative Panasonic Viera TX-P65VT50J TV of the various displays we have in for review. So overall we would class the P65VT50's saturation tracking as very good and certainly the best that we have measured to date. Contrast and Black Level Whilst you can never just rely on measurements to judge the performance of a display, we appreciate that a lot of people like Panasonic Viera TX-P65VT50J TV know the numbers when it comes to both full black and peak white.

This is of particular interest with the P65VT50 because Panasonic has limited the Panasonic Viera TX-P65VT50J TV output of the panel in the two Professional picture modes. This difference wasn't especially noticeable when comparing the two modes with real world material and we had no problems using the calibrated Professional picture modes for both day and night viewing.

However some people might feel they need the additional brightness during the day and as a result, some calibrators now calibrate the THX greyscale in the service menu in Panasonic Viera TX-P65VT50J TV to provide their clients with an alternative day setting. Using a full black screen we measured the THX Cinema mode at 0.

We should point out that there was some fluctuation in the measurements but overall the THX Picture mode did deliver a slightly better black Panasonic Viera TX-P65VT50J TV, although it also appeared to have slightly more dither noise in dark areas of the picture. Based on these measurements, the THX Cinema picture mode is capable of delivering an excellent 11, The P65VT50 performed superbly well in this test and as you can see on the graphic above, the Panasonic Viera TX-P65VT50J TV across the screen is very consistent in the perfectly calibrated Professional picture mode.

You are never looking at just a black or white screen, which is why the intra-frame performance is so important and these measurements show that the P65VT50 can deliver a fantastic contrast ratio and dynamic range with real world material. For this reason, whilst there might be an absolute difference between the THX Cinema and Professional picture modes, there was no real perceivable difference between them with normal viewing Panasonic Viera TX-P65VT50J TV.

Video Processing The Panasonic Viera TX-P65VT50J TV of the P65VT50's video processing was excellent, it reproduced all the detail and resolution tests correctly and scaled the standard definition images without any loss of detail or unwanted ringing. It also scored very highly in the jaggies tests, as well as performing very well on the diagonal interpolation test, with two of the three moving bars appearing smooth and only the bottom most extreme bar showing very slight jaggies. The P65VT50 was able to correctly detect both 3: We checked the high definition performance of the P65VT50 and it correctly deinterlaced and displayed both the video and film resolution tests provided The P65VT50 also showed very good scaling and filtering abilities, as well as extremely impressive resolution enhancement capabilities.


When it came to p24 content, the P65VT50 delivered incredibly smooth movement and even the Panasonic Viera TX-P65VT50J TV moving wedge tests on the Spears and Munsil disc were reproduced with little sign of moire or flicker. This resulted in a truly impressive dynamic range that delivered an excellent contrast ratio that was free of any clipping, as evidenced by the six concentric squares in the white, red, Panasonic Viera TX-P65VT50J TV and blue patterns on the Spears and Munsil disc. The P65VT50 could also handle a full luma and chroma bandwidth and delivered excellent resolution for both. In theory this should mean a slightly enhanced chromatic resolution and more detailed images, provided that the source is sending it correctly.

However, it certainly shouldn't cause any harm to leave the p Pure Direct mode on and benefit from any possible improvements, especially if your using the P65VT50 with one of Panasonic's latest Blu-ray players. We discuss motion handling in more detail in the picture quality sections but overall the motion handling on the P65VT50 was excellent and using the FPD Benchmark disc, Panasonic Viera TX-P65VT50J TV full lines of resolution were visible on the moving tests.


The addition of a Min setting is new this year and we found that it had little to no affect in testing, with the motion just appearing slightly clearer on the FPD Benchmark disc with no obvious artefacts being introduced. With the Mid and Max settings the impact was much more pronounced and whilst you could use IFC in conjunction with fast paced and video based sporting material, it should never be used with film based content. For exactly the same reasons you need to ensure that the Panasonic Viera TX-P65VT50J TV Smooth Film function is also turned off when watching 24p material.

The reality is that with Blu-ray content encoded at 24p, the P65VT50 didn't need any additional processing and the results looked spectacular. Gaming Performance Using our new input lag tester, we measured an input lag of 47ms with the P65VT50 in Game mode, which is comparable with measurements we have made Panasonic Viera TX-P65VT50J TV other Panasonic plasmas this year. Whilst a lag of 47ms might be a little high for the serious gamer, it is certainly good enough for most people and when gaming we were never really aware of any lag.

Plasma technology has the trait of showing up the low motion deficiencies inherent with games running under 60 frames per second Panasonic Viera TX-P65VT50J TV and the P65VT50 was no exception but it never bothered us.

Out-of-the-Box — Normal Mode: Thanks to the comprehensive calibration controls the P65VT50 was able to deliver a reference quality picture, with a perfect greyscale and colour gamut. As a result, regardless of whether you were watching standard or high definition content, the images always had a natural appearance.

Once you added the clean and detailed picture that was largely free from PWM noise and the strengths of the P65VT50 became Panasonic Viera TX-P65VT50J TV, especially on such a large screen. For at least the past two or three TV generations, Panasonic's VT series of plasma screens have represented the pinnacle of TV performance. Smart Viera TVs come with TV apps but Panasonic has also extended their 65” Panasonic TC-P65VT50 65” Panasonic TX-P65VT
