Getting Started
Positioning
How you set up your speakers can affect the bass and the sound field.
≥This system is a 5.1ch sound system.
≥Place speakers on flat secure bases.
≥Placing speakers too close to floors, walls, and corners can result in excessive bass. Cover walls and windows with thick curtains.
NOTE ≥For optional wall mount, refer to page 43.
≥Keep your speakers at least 10 mm away from the system for proper ventilation.
Setup example
Place the front, center, surround speakers at approximately the same distance from the seating position. Using “SMART SETUP” (> 14) is a convenient way to
get the ideal surround sound from your speakers when you are unable to place them. The angles in the diagram are approximate.
Center speaker
Subwoofer
Front speakers
45º to 60º
Put on a rack or shelf. Vibration
caused by the speaker can
disrupt the picture if it is placed
directly on the TV.
Place to the right or
left of the TV, on the
floor or a sturdy shelf
so that it will not
cause vibration.
Leave about 30 cm
from the TV.
Main unit
To allow for proper ventilation
and to maintain good airflow
around the main unit, position
it with at least 5 cm of
space on all sides.
Surround speakers
120º
Position the speakers as illustrated and place them
at the same height or higher than ear level.
Set your surround sound free!
Optional Panasonic wireless accessory
(SH-FX70)
You can enjoy surround speaker sound wirelessly
when you use the optional Panasonic wireless
accessory ( SH-FX70). (> 42)
For details, please refer to the operating
instructions for the optional Panasonic wireless
accessory.

TIPS
≥Use only supplied speakers
Using other speakers can damage the unit, and
sound quality will be negatively affected.
≥You can damage your speakers and shorten
their useful life if you play sound at high levels
over extended periods.
≥Reduce the volume in the following cases to
avoid damage:
– When playing distorted sound.
– When the speakers are reverberating due to a
record player, noise from FM broadcasts, or
continuous signals from an oscillator, test
disc, or electronic instrument.
– When adjusting the sound quality.
– When turning the unit on or off.
≥Positioning speakers in front
It is possible to locate all the speakers in front
of the listening position. However the optimal
surround sound effect may not be obtainable.
If irregular colouring occurs on your TV
The center speaker is designed to be used close to a TV, but the
picture may be affected with some TVs and setup combinations.
If this occurs, turn the TV off for about 30 minutes.
The demagnetising function of the TV should correct the problem. If it
persists, move the speakers further away from the TV.
Caution
≥The main unit and supplied speakers are to be used only as
indicated in this setup. Failure to do so may lead to damage to
the amplifier and/or the speakers, and may result in the risk of
fire. Consult a qualified service person if damage has
occurred or if you experience a sudden change in
performance.
≥Do not attempt to attach these speakers to walls using
methods other than those described in this manual.
Caution
Do not touch the front netted area of the speakers. Hold by the sides.

Glossary
BD-J
Some BD-Video discs contain Java applications, and these
applications are called BD-J. You can enjoy various interactive
features in addition to playing normal video.
BD-Live
This is a BD-Video (BD-ROM Profile 2) that supports the new functions
such as Internet connection, etc. in addition to the BONUSVIEW
function.
Bitstream
This is the digital form of multi-channel audio data (e.g., 5.1 channel)
before it is decoded into its various channels.
BONUSVIEW (Final Standard Profile)
This is a BD-Video (BD-ROM Profile 1 version 1.1) that supports the
new functions such as Picture-in-picture and Secondary Audio, etc.
Deep Colour
This unit incorporates HDMITM (V.1.3a with Deep Colour) technology
that can reproduce greater colour gradation (4096 steps) when
connected to a compatible TV.
You can enjoy exceptionally rich, natural-looking colours, with smooth,
detailed gradation and minimal colour banding.
[A lower colour gradation (256 steps), without Deep Colour, will be
reproduced if connected to a TV which does not support Deep Colour.
The unit will automatically set appropriate output to suit the connected
TV.]
DivX
DivX is a popular media technology created by DivX, Inc. DivX media
files contain highly compressed video with high visual quality that
maintains a relatively small file size.
DNS Server
A server which acts like a telephone directory and translates Internet
domain names into IP addresses.
DTS-HD High Resolution Audio
This is a signal format achieved by improving the previous DTS,
DTS-ES and DTS 96/24 formats. It is compatible with sampling
frequency 96 kHz/48 kHz. BD-Video supports up to 7.1 channel
output.
DTS-HD Master Audio
This is a lossless audio format and compatible with 96 kHz/7.1ch or
less. In addition, faithful reproduction of the master audio is enabled
using lossless audio encoding technology. BD-Video supports up to
7.1 channel output.
Dynamic range
Dynamic range is the difference between the lowest level of sound that
can be heard above the noise of the equipment and the highest level
of sound before distortion occurs.
Dynamic range compression means reducing the gap between the
loudest and softest sounds. This means you can listen at low volumes
but still hear dialog clearly.
Film and video
DVD-Video are recorded using either film or video. This unit can
determine which type has been used, then uses the most suitable
method of progressive output.
Film:
Recorded at 25 frames per second (PAL discs) or 24
frames per second (NTSC discs). (NTSC discs recorded at
30 frames per second as well.)
Generally appropriate for motion picture films.
Video:
Recorded at 25 frames/50 fields per second (PAL discs) or
30 frames/60 fields per second (NTSC discs). Generally
appropriate for TV drama programs or animation.
Folder
This is a place on the disc, USB device or SD card where groups of
data are stored together. Additional folders can be created within
folders, and you can make detailed classifications depending on the
folder structure. (> 47)
Frames and fields
Frames refer to the single images that constitute the video you see on
your television. Each frame consists of two fields.

Dolby Digital
This is a method of coding digital signals developed by Dolby
Laboratories. Apart from stereo (2-channel) audio, these signals can
also be multi-channel audio.
Dolby Digital Plus
Multi-channel audio and higher audio quality is made possible using
Dolby Digital Plus. BD-Video supports up to 7.1 channel output.
Dolby Pro Logic II
Dolby Pro Logic II enables you to play stereo sources on 5.1-channel.
Dolby TrueHD
Dolby TrueHD is a very high quality audio format that reproduces the
studio master audio. BD-Video supports up to 7.1 channel output.

Field
Field
≥A frame still shows two fields, so there may be some blurring, but
picture quality is generally better.
≥A field still shows less picture information so it may be rougher, but
there is no blurring.
Gateway
IP address of the electronic device providing Internet access.
Usually called a router IP address. (e.g., 192.168.0.1)
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface)
HDMI is a digital interface for consumer electronic products. Unlike
conventional connections, it transmits uncompressed digital video and
audio signals on a single cable.
Down-mixing
This is the process of remixing the multi-channel audio found on some
discs into fewer channels.
Hub
Used for connecting more than one device to the network.
DTS (Digital Theater Systems)
This surround system is used in many movie theaters. There is good
separation between the channels, so realistic sound effects are
possible.
IP address
A set of numbers which distinguish each device on the network when,
for example, connected to the Internet. When using a PC in a LAN to
access a PC or device that is not included in the LAN, the IP address
is called the local IP address. (e.g., 192.168.0.10)
DTS-HD
DTS-HD is a high-quality, sophisticated audio format used in movie
theaters. Previous DTS Digital Surround-compatible equipment can
play DTS-HD as DTS Digital Surround audio. BD-Video supports up to
7.1 channel output.
Reference
AVCHD
AVCHD is a new format (standard) for high definition video cameras
that can be used to record and play high-resolution HD images.

Glossary
JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group)
This is a system used for compressing/decoding colour still pictures. If
you select JPEG as the storage system on digital cameras, etc., the
data will be compressed to 1/10–1/100 of its original size. The benefit
of JPEG is less deterioration in picture quality considering the degree
of compression.
LAN (Local Area Network)
A group of linked devices in a company, school or home.
Indicates the boundaries of a particular network.
Local storage
This storage area is used as a destination for sub contents for playing
BD-Live on BD-Video.
LPCM (Linear PCM)
These are a kind of PCM format.
These are uncompressed digital signals, similar to those found on
CDs.
MPEG2 (Moving Picture Experts Group)
A standard for efficiently compressing and expanding colour video.
MPEG2 is a compression standard used for DVD and satellite based
digital broadcasting.
VIERA CAST
An information service unique with Panasonic where specific Web
sites can be viewed on this unit by connecting to the Internet without
using a PC.
Pan&Scan/Letterbox
In general, DVD-Video are produced with the intention that they be
viewed on a widescreen television (16:9 aspect ratio), so images often
don’t fit regular (4:3 aspect ratio) televisions. Two styles of picture,
“Pan & Scan” and “Letterbox”, deal with this problem.
x.v.ColourTM
x.v.ColourTM is a name for devices that are compatible with the xvYCC
format, an international standard for expanded colour in motion
pictures, and that follow the rules for signal transmission.
You can enjoy vivid colours of wider colour ranges for a more realistic
picture when connected to a TV that supports the x.v.ColourTM with
HDMI cable.
Picture-in-picture
This is a function of BD-Video that plays the primary video and
secondary video simultaneously. For instance, the function is capable
of playing the original movie as the primary video while playing video
commentary from the film director on a small screen as a secondary
video.
Reference
Subnet mask
Enables efficient network use. A set of numbers which identify which
part of the IP address allocated to every device connected to the
router is the network portion.
MP3 (MPEG Audio Layer 3)
An audio compression method that compresses audio to
approximately one tenth of its size without any significant loss of audio
quality.
PCM (Pulse Code Modulation)
This is one format for converting analogue audio into digital audio,
enabling you to enjoy digital audio with no hassle.
56
Sampling frequency
Sampling is the process of converting the heights of sound wave
(analogue signal) samples taken at set periods into digits (digital
encoding). Sampling frequency is the number of samples taken per
second, so larger numbers mean more faithful reproduction of the
original sound.
USB (Universal Serial Bus)
An interface specification to connect peripherals. Playback of MP3,
JPEG, or DivX recorded to a USB memory by PC or other equipment,
or JPEG in the Panasonic digital camera or similar connected via USB
connection cable is possible with this unit.
Letterbox: Black bands appear at the top and bottom
of the picture so the picture itself appears
in an aspect ratio of 16:9.
56
Router
Distinguishes the IP address assigned to each device, such as the PC,
and relays the flow of data within the network.
MPEG-4 AVC/H.264
A standard for efficiently compressing and expanding colour video.
MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 is an encoding method used for recording of the
high definition videos.
Pan&Scan:The sides are cut off so the picture fills the
screen.

P4HD (Pixel Precision Progressive Processing for HD)
This is a processor which makes use of an exclusive Panasonic
algorithm. Various processing is supported, including a high-level
conversion of the TV scanning format from interlace to progressive
and a high-level conversion of standard resolution (480i or 576i) video
signal to a 1080 High Definition video signal.
Consequently, this unit is able to provide video of optimal resolution to
the connected TV.
Progressive/Interlace
The PAL video signal standard has 625 (or 576) interlaced (i) scan
lines, whereas progressive scanning, called 625p (or 576p), uses
twice the number of scan lines. For the NTSC standard, these are
called 525i (or 480i) and 525p (or 480p) respectively.
Using progressive output, you can enjoy the high-resolution video
recorded on media such as DVD-Video.
Your television must be compatible to enjoy progressive video.
Panasonic televisions with 625 (576)/50i · 50p, 525 (480)/60i · 60p
input terminals are progressive compatible.
1080i (1125i)
In one high definition image, 1080 (1125) alternating scan lines pass to
create an interlaced image. Because 1080i (1125i) more than doubles
current television broadcasts of 480i, the detail is much clearer and
creates a more realistic and rich image.
1080p (1125p)
In one high definition image, 1080 (1125) scan lines pass at the same
time to create a progressive image. Since progressive video does not
alternate scan lines like interlace, there is a minimal amount of screen
flicker.
24p
This is a progressive image recorded at a rate of 24 frames per
second.
720p (750p)
In one high definition image, 720 (750) scan lines pass at the same
time to create a progressive image. Since progressive video does not
alternate scan lines like interlace, there is a minimal amount of screen
flicker.
