Calibrating the Panasonic ST50 Series TV

Calibration Notes and Processing Testing: The TC-55ST50 has a very complete calibration setting options including 2-point or 10-point white balance settings. Below are the settings we recommend for this and all of the ST50 series. These will be best for medium brightness rooms with some incoming light from windows. In a lower light environment turn the contrast setting down to 90. There are no THX preset picture modes included on the ST50 series. The ST50 series calibrated well to D6500K but the menu system could be improved upon.
