Although the Viera TC-P54Z1 might not have as many adjustable picture settings as some other HDTVs on the market, it still has enough of them to satisfy most consumers. The main picture menu includes adjustable settings for the usual suspects such as contrast, brightness, color, tint, and sharpness. You have five color temperature presets to choose from, and you can employ the set's color management system if you want.
Digital Cinema Color, which is said to give the TC-P54Z1 the ability to show a wider color space than most HD televisions, can be toggled on and off. To help clear up picture, there is a video noise reduction setting. The main picture menu also offers a C.A.T.S. option that will adjust the picture's brightness according to ambient light when engaged.
It is here as well that you can choose from one of six preset picture modes, each of which has its own combination of settings to adapt best to what you are watching or using the television for. There is a Studio Ref mode that attempts to mimic the picture found on studio monitors. Game mode offers quicker image response and deep black levels to give gamers the best experience possible.
If you are a bit of a picture adjustment newbie, you may elect to use the THX mode. The THX mode is somewhat of a one-step calibration that adjusts several settings at once, such as shadow detail, color accuracy, and more to give you an optimal picture without having to do any the work yourself.
If you enjoy tweaking settings on your own, you can engage the Custom mode, which will allow you to adjust several options. Custom mode settings are independent per input, while the other five picture modes are not, but you can still adjust each if you wish.
For those that are more versed in picture settings, there is a Pro Setting menu with plenty of adjustable options. To access the Pro Setting menu, you must first be in the Custom picture mode. Once there, you have the ability to change such settings as panel brightness, white balance, gamma, and much more.
As far as aspect ratio options are concerned, you get five for HD sources, such as Normal, Full, Zoom, Just, and Conventional 4:3. There is also a Full for PC mode. If you are worried about your expensive plasma getting ruined by “burn-in” or image retention, the TC-P54Z1 is equipped with some settings to counteract the problem should it occur, or that will help prevent it from happening in the first place.
