Calibration report using these settings:

Below you'll find the settings I found best for viewing the Panasonic TC-P60VT60 in a dim room via the HDMI input. Your settings may vary depending on source, room conditions, and personal preference. Check out the Picture settings and calibration FAQ for more information.

Calibration notes: The television offers a high number of controls but it doesn't necessarily mean it's possible to get a more accurate picture. The W/B and fine Gamma controls were particularly unpredictable and changing one parameter meant that something else could be randomly affected. As a result I mainly stuck to "big" adjustments. Also not the 40 IRE spike in the chart isn't a calibration problem but a temporary reading giltch common to plasma.

I was curious about the difference i Picture settings myself
Jan 11, 2014 5:01PM PST

YEAH I wondered about the differences in the ZT and VT differences in calibration between the 2. When they are basically identical in everything with the exception of a bright room environment, I would think the setting would be the same also. I can only imagine that David did the review on the ZT series and not the VT, in which you will always find a difference in settings, when performed by two different people. I however used the settings for the ZT and input them on the VT and saw a difference(a little by the way). Try those settings on the VT that is submitted for the ZT by David, who always did the calibration settings on most other flagship Televisions. I feel he may have either a better experience in calibration on TV's or the extra brightness confirms the difference because it handles bright rooms better according to them.

ZT vs VT
Jan 18, 2014 4:19AM PST

I know calibration settings are room dependent and really need a professional calibration to be perfect, but I too am surprised that the ZT and VT suggested picture settings are so different. The sharpness setting really stands out, but so do the enormous differences in the pro settings. Hoping someone can clarify at some point. I own the VT and it just feels like something is off. I guess I could pay to have it calibrated but...

Worked Well for Me
Feb 6, 2014 12:08AM PST

I used these settings for my VT60 (although I started with the "Custom" picture mode), and the results were phenomenal to my eyes. We're obviously working with an outstanding TV to start with, but I was amazed by the picture quality after I made the adjustments. Flesh tones in live-action movies were as natural-looking as I've ever seen outside a theater. And when I popped "How to Train Your Dragon" into the Blu-Ray player (Panasonic DMP-BDT220), I was totally blown away. Highly saturated colors like flames were intense, but without the kind of color bleed I've often seen. At the same time, more "natural" colors like flesh tones, hair, and wood were subtle and natural-looking.

Thanks for posting these!
