3D and Amazing Picture Quality
The True to Cinema Picture Concept
3D from the heart of Hollywood - Since 1992, Panasonic has maintained a close working relationship with the top Hollywood film studios, establishing Panasonic Hollywood Laboratory on the site of Universal Studios, this state of the art research and development centre began working on the Telecine and encoding process for the development of DVD. It continues to this day but has evolved in to one of the key encoding and authoring houses for Blu-ray and 3D Blu-ray. These activities have enabled PHL to accumulate the know-how necessary to faithfully reproduce original movie images on Blu-ray discs and have led to the development of the advanced imaging processors and chip-sets used in our range of DVD and Blu-ray players. The results are clear to see in our award winning models that achieve truly beautiful images with even more realism, depth and texture.
Full HD 3D Blu-ray Playback
Full High Definition resolution by 'Frame Sequential' 3D Blu-ray playback: the amazing picture quality of Blu-ray Disc is due to the increased number of pixels in each frame of the image. Full High Definition requires 1920 x 1080 pixels (that's about 5x more resolution than DVD) and exactly matches the resolution of Full HD TVs. However, 3D movies display twice as many frames as 2D due to the slightly different information contained in the right eye and left eye images. Only Blu-ray 3D discs can store Full HD for the left eye and Full HD for the right eye and deliver them alternately to the screen in rapid sequential frames. This means that none of the stunning resolution and depth of Full HD is lost when watching 3D.
2D to 3D Conversion
Watch 2D videos in 3D, even movies streamed "On Demand" - Of course it's going to take time to build your collection of 3D movies. So Panasonic offer 2D-3D Conversion that enables conversion of regular 2D DVDs and Blu-ray Discs into 3D images with natural depth perception. Watch your DVD collection in 3D for even greater viewing enjoyment. You can also convert content from the on-line VIERA Connect services, including Video-on-Demand, into 3D.
Perfect Audio Clarity
High Grade Audio Parts
High quality sound reproduction, with high-precision audio processing by four independent 192 kHz 32-bit audio DACs reproducing 7.1-channel sound with 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. Insulator feet suppress vibration, greatly reducing noise interference and enabling faithful reproduction even of weak signal nuances that might otherwise be lost.
Twin HDMI Ouput
Create an ideal acoustic environment for the audio receiver - Full HD 3D video signals require a high-speed data transmission rate that older AV Receivers are not designed to handle. This can be an issue if you want to take full advantage of the improved surround sound signals from 3D Blu-ray Discs by connecting to a non-3D compatible surround sound AV receiver. Panasonic offer two separate HDMI outputs on our high-end Blu-ray players so that one output can be dedicated to an audio signal. The second output connects directly to the 3D display ensuring Full HD 3D capability. The Twin HDMI function achieves better sound quality and matches the needs of the users who want to utilise their older audio equipment.
Smart TV and Networking
Panasonic VIERA Connect
A whole host of on-line entertainment delivered to your TV - By connecting this device to your Broadband router, you can access a wide range of internet services such as catch-up TV, sports news, weather info, movies-on-demand and games. Viera Connect offers users greater convenience and 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.

The Blu-ray Disc players also feature a convenient and unique Auto Answering Video Message function. Skype requires the optional Communication Camera TY-CC20.
Smart Phone Remote Control
Convenient operation via a smartphone - Download the Panasonic remote control apps for free and turn your iPhone or compatible Android device into a versatile remote. By installing the Panasonic remote control apps onto your smartphone, you can easily operate your Blu-ray Disc Players and Home Theatre Systems by tapping and swiping the touch display. iPhone Remote Control App must be downloaded from the App Store (iTunes Store). For this function, a wireless LAN environment is required. System Requirements: iPod touch 3rd generation or later, iPhone 3GS or later, iOS version 4.2 or later.
Enjoy Music, Video or Photo contents stored on your PC in another room - The Digital Living Network Alliance was set up by a number of software and hardware manufacturers to enable products to communicate with one another in a home network. DLNA-certified Blu-ray Disc Players and Home Cinema Systems can share or stream content stored on other DLNA-certified products. Share and enjoy digital photos (JPEG), music (MP3, WMA) and videos (AVCHD, WMV) on a Windows 7 PC, for example, by simply connecting to a home network (LAN) either wired or wirelessly. You can even install a special app on your iPhone or iPad and use it to send files to your Blu-ray device. You can access, browse and view compatible media stored on the other DLNA device while in another room, without having to worry about shuffling discs or running long cables.
Easily connect to a wireless home network - A Wi-Fi system is built right into the main unit so you can enjoy VIERA Connect, BD-Live content and downloadable firmware updates without having to connect the Blu-ray Disc Players and Home Theatre Systems with a LAN cable or use a wireless LAN adaptor. A wireless LAN environment is required.
External HDD Playback
Easily enjoy stored content from external disc drives – BDT500 is compatible with 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. Connection is via USB and most drives are compatible, even the latest NTFS (New Technology File System) format. (Playback is not possible with some external hard disk drives).

Picture is crisp, and unit is easy to set up and use.
Touch pad is a bit of a gimmick, and it is easier to use the buttons.
Other makes get better reviews due to their web portal, I just want a great picture and I got it.
Better picture quality that was already very good. Even bigger improvement in the sound. Panasonic have made some tweaks and the result is a huge improvement with greater clarity and depth to the sound stage. Bass is tight and treble well controlled.
A really good player at an affordable price and compares to any £500 price bracket players.
since connecting this to my amp and watching blu rays all the lights on the amp (pioneer LX90) light up, which never happened before on previous models. one of which is HD MASTER. everything about this player is immense if you are adding it to a top end home cinema.
definatley worth a buy, you wont be disappointing and you get a proper full size remote (with touch pad and hard buttons) unlike the 320 and the fiddly touch pad.
The sound is much improved also and you can get 5.1 surround from most DVD's (couldn't get it from my Laurel and Hardy films - but that was expecting too much!!!. It did give a nice 3D feel to them however which was interesting!!!. One of my favourite films 'Oliver', recently came out in blu ray, so I can now watch this great film in top notch quality on max size picture with added 3D!! - again a real treat!!
The build quality is very good, but personally I would like to have more info displayed on the unit as the films play. It's all very dark without this. The remote is good, although perhaps a little top heavy and wants to fall out of your hand. The touch pad is great however and you can use easily in the dark!!.These points are really splitting hairs however, and all in all this is a fantastic unit with some brilliant features. The bottom line however is what is the picture like?? - in a different league!!
I'll keep this a simple review:
By far best picture/motion quality I have seen from any player (I have auditioned many in last 2 years from £100-600 models) including DVD up-scaler
Superb build quality-sturdy and heavy
Simple to set up
Gorgeous design-clean lines (no annoying shiny cheap plastic)
Whisper quiet (believe me-this has been the most common problem with budget-midrange players with driver noise)
Superb remote-people have been critical of the touch pad remote. Maybe its because I am used to iPhone but I find remote no problem at all. Its quite responsive and intuative
Excellent wi-fi capabilities
But without doubt........the icing on the cake........is the audio. I'm honestly hearing things I have not heard before. Big, strong and super clear. The seperation is spectacular.
To be honest.......I can't think of anything!
Guaranteed future award winner. Buy with extreme confidence, you will NOT be disappointed. If you are serious about film...buy this player. I didn't expect such an increase in quality from previous model. Thank you Panasonic, you did a great job with this one.
