Panasonic SC-BT100 home cinema system

 

Blu-ray pioneer Panasonic scoops another world's first with the SC-BT100, currently the only Blu-ray system on the market with Profile 1.1 support. That means it'll play the picture-in-picture commentaries found on certain Blu-ray discs (such as...

Picture quality, features, looks, ease of use, Profile 1.1

Sound quality, expensive, rear speakers are extra

The SC-BT100 offers amazing picture performance, a healthy set of features and unsurpassed ease-of-use, plus its Profile 1.1 capabilities put it streets ahead of other BD systems on the market. But in our opinion not putting surround speakers in the...

Panasonic SC-BT100 review

 

Panasonic's SC-BT100 Blu-ray home cinema in a box system has been arousing a lot of interest on our Forums, so we thought it was time to try it out

Extensive specification ; fine Blu-ray images and effective DVD upscaling too

Sound is unyieldingly hard ; conspicuous speakers

A thoughtful and fairly neat solution - but sound quality is as important a part of the cinema experience as picture quality

Panasonic SC-BT100 Blu-ray HTiB

 

The SC-BT100 may be Panasonic's first HTiB system to include an integrated Blu-ray player, but that didn't stop the designers from loading on 2.4GHz wireless surround speakers, a built-in iPod dock, and a SD Memory Card reader. Oh, and the SC-BT100...

The Panasonic SC-BT 100 narrows the gap between lousy, low-end home theater systems and the ultra high end sound you can only hear in the movie theater

Consumer review by: Rob (reevoo.com)

Panasonic SC-BT100

 

Upscaling of standard dvd's to 1080p resolution is amazing. the sound quality is excellent, giving that 'cinema experience' feel. Fairly easy to use after having a quick flick through the user manual.

Could have done with extra speakers to take it to the 5.1 surround for the money that I paid. Disappointed that the HDMI & digital optical audio cables didn't come as part of the package. If you're paying for the highest quality sound & picture, it...

The product design is excellent and would fit in different room sizes. The sound was so good I kept having to turn it down because the floors were rumbling along with the movie.

Lots of wires hanging from the back of the system and to the TV

Product Specifications

Take your favorite movies to the next level with the Panasonic full-HD Blu-ray Disc home theater system. Blu-ray discs give you superior sound, stunning HD-quality images, and exciting new interactive capabilities like Final Standard Profile for enhanced commentary, audio mixing and picture-in-picture features previously unthinkable in the DVD format. With Blu-ray, you'll never have to leave the couch for a big-screen quality movie experience. Combining a PHL Reference chroma processor with advanced P4HD (Pixel Precision Progressive Processing) imaging technology, UniPhier - the precise digital video processor - reproduces crisp, natural colors that are extremely faithful to the original movie. It does this by up-sampling the color information in decoded video signals, while the super high-speed P4HD up-converts content recorded in 480i/p, 720p or 1080i format to 1080p by correctly generating each pixel according to information drawn from up to 60 surrounding pixels. The image motion of each pixel is then categorized into one of 16 levels, from stationary to super fast. Image quality is further enhanced by diagonal processing, which creates smooth, sharp diagonal lines, and 3:2 pull-down, which optimizes the processing accordingly for film or video making the images look natural and lifelike. In addition, the BT100's HDMI output is deep color compatible, with 4,096 steps of gradation for even smoother, finer-quality images that meet Hollywood's stringent demands, so you can experience movies just the way they were meant to be experienced. With precise digital audio, Blu-ray's beautiful images are complemented by exceptionally pure, accurate sound thanks to the included 5.1 channel surround sound of Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD and expandability to advanced 7.1 channel surround sound. Use of a highly rigid bamboo material in the center and front speakers helps achieve an extremely pure, clean sound. A Kelton Subwoofer system with a dual diameter structure delivers a deep, powerful bass. Whisper-mode surround allows you to enjoy rich surround sound even when watching movies at low volume. The built-in universal dock for iPod gives you a great new way to enjoy music and video. Just slip your iPod into the cradle and enjoy. The dock charges your iPod, allows you to use the home theater remote to control the iPod, has on-screen audio menus, and also plays back iPod video. You can also use the system's convenient SD card slot, which allows easy viewing of hi-def videos and photos on your VIERA HDTV. The newly enhanced VIERA Link displays a menu on the TV screen, making it easier to operate your connected Blu-ray Disc home theater system. For example, you can display a menu with a list of the movies or music stored on your iPod, and use the VIERA remote control unit to select one and begin playback.
