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.
