Panasonic TC-P65VT50 Calibrated Picture Settings (also, TC-P55VT50)
Calibrating the Panasonic VT50 Series TV
Calibration Notes and Processing Testing: The VT50 series has a full array of calibration options for ISF calibration in including an ISFccc Calibration Mode, Luminance adjustment control for Cyan, Magenta, yellow. It's as complete as a TV can get in this area. However, the menu system for calibration could use some improvement. In the CMS (color management system) to adjust red hue, saturation, and luminance, you have to exit out each time and go through the main menu navigation again from the start. The whole system makes it very difficult to take measurements, due in part to the menu popping up in front of the display that's being read. This just makes it a pain, but of course does not affect quality. Our recommended settings below will be best suited to a mid to fairly high brightness room. For lower light conditions, turn the contrast down to 90, or use the THX setting (which was better than expected). The THX bright room setting is also quite good.Software used for calibration: Spectracal CalMAN Pro V4.6.3
