The Network submenu includes an option for Easy Network Settings, which helps you set up the built-in WiFi but there is also a more detailed option called Network Settings.

Setting up the wireless connection is very easy and the BDT includes WiFi Direct WiDi which means it can connect with similar devices without the need to go through a router. After Network, there is another submenu called Ratings which given the limited number of options could probably have been included with the Network submenu. Features The BDT comes with WiFi built-in, so you can connect directly to your wireless network but Panasonic DMP-BDT220 Blu-Ray Player you don't have one then you can connect to your router or network using a LAN cable. The platform that Panasonic use on their BD players is essentially the same as last year's TV platform.


Whilst this is an improvement on last year's BD players it does mean that some features found on this year's TVs, like the Web Browser, are missing. However there are still a decent number of applications including the ubiquitous BBC iPlayer, Skype although you'll need the previously mentioned camera attachment to use itas well as Twitter and Facebook. Another addition is the VIERA Connect Market, where you can buy and download additional apps and games, although there is Panasonic DMP-BDT220 Blu-Ray Player payment feature. Besides having a wide choice of apps, the other important elements of an internet platform are that it is easy to access and responsive.

In this sense VIERA Connect was a success because it was simple to launch, you just press the Internet button Panasonic DMP-BDT220 Blu-Ray Player the remote, and whilst it was reasonably responsive, it isn't as fast as Panasonic's latest TVs. Our only complaint about Panasonic's internet platform is that in order to move from one page to the next, you have to select MORE or BACK, rather than just going directly to the next page but this is a minor quibble.

We downloaded the BD Remote app and found it was easy to connect and simple to use, providing an effective way of controlling and communicating with the BDT As we mentioned previously, the BDT provided for review by TPS Panasonic DMP-BDT220 Blu-Ray Player been modified and as a result it was capable of multi-region playback. The default setting is Region B for Blu-ray and Region 2 for DVD but it is easy to change it by entering a specific code on the remote.

Since we were reviewing the Panasonic P50GT50 at the same time, the BDT certainly had plenty of opportunity to show its 3D colours during the review process and we're happy to report the Panasonic DMP-BDT220 Blu-Ray Player player did a very capable job with 3D Blu-ray, resulting in no undue artefacting. The player also had no problems handling p Blu-rays encoded at 50Hz or 60Hz. As long as you selected the Cinema picture mode, there appeared to be no unwanted processing going on with p content and as a result, the suitably unadulterated p output looked great.

The player handled both the edge adaptive deinterlacing and cadence detection duties very well, which is an improvement on last year. Fine details were largely retained under movement and the player was able to lock on to both the PAL 2: Whilst it might not be quite as Panasonic DMP-BDT220 Blu-Ray Player as the likes of Sony and Samsung, in actual testing we found there wasn't any detail being taken away from the image and well transferred material looked very nice indeed. Subjective Audio Tests Unlike the video performance which can be measured using a series of established tests and viewed on a calibrated reference monitor, things are a little more subjective when it comes to the audio performance.

We tried different methods of connecting the BDT to our reference receiver, including HDMI, optical and 2-channel stereo via the analogue outputs. The result of all these permutations was that overall the BDT performed very well in the digital realm but it could hardly be classed an audiophile product, so if analogue sound is a priority there are better players to look at.

Panasonic DMP-BDT220 Blu-Ray Player feature turns off the video DAC in the chipset for playback over HDMI and turns off the video output completely for audio playback. Panasonic claim this will reduce electrical interference and thus improve the audio over HDMI but considering it's a digital signal we were sceptical. It was only 1 second from pressing the eject button in standby to the disc tray being open but it was an almost equally nippy 3 seconds even without Quick Start enabled.

The time it took to actually load a disc and reach the copyright notice ranged from 20 to 30 seconds depending on the disc. However, getting to the actual menu page could often take much longer, although in fairness this is Panasonic DMP-BDT220 Blu-Ray Player fault of the studios and not the BDT Energy Consumption In line with all of Panasonic's products this year, the BDT comes with some fairly serious green credentials and the energy consumption numbers were incredibly small.

In standby without Quick Start enabled the BDT measured zero on our meter which means Panasonic DMP-BDT220 Blu-Ray Player energy consumption was lower than 0. However, even when in operation and actually playing a disc, the BDT was only using a measly 9W, so Panasonic appear to be delivering on their promise of energy efficient products.


Colours are strong and vibrant without being overblown, and manage to lend a natural tone even on an animated film. The Panasonic is impressively stable compared with its rivals, and when coupled with a rich colour palette and good resolution this makes for easy and enjoyable viewing. We put on old favourite The Lord of the Rings: The picture is remarkably clear with plenty of details that remind you just how stunning and fantastical Middle Panasonic DMP-BDT220 Blu-Ray Player is. Black levels are smooth and inky-deep, with a great balance of colours and contrast that can handle action sequences and quiet atmospheric scenes with equal poise.

Panasonic DMP-BDT220 Blu-Ray Player levels are pleasingly low, too. The DMP-BDT 3D Blu-ray player lacks the design and features of its step-up sibling but with DLNA support, Viera Connect and dazzling.
