You don't unless Panasonic or the panel maker publish that info which is unlikely. News articles such as those published on digitimes may provide a good idea. Otherwise you have to look at the Panasonic specs (for example) and try to find a panel that meets them. In other cases such as 70" displays only Sharp makes them.

Maybe, sort of. The larger panel mfrs are: Samsung, LG, and Sharp. The smaller panel mfrs are: AU Optronics, ChiMei Innolux, Hitachi, Toshiba, IPS Alpha (Panasonic/Hitachi), S-LCD (Samsung/Sony), and HannStar. The list may be a bit outdated because some mfrs may stop making them or make them in conjunction with someone else.


Finding out who your particular panel mfr is can be very difficult because tv mfrs will change, even in mid-seaon, whose panels they are going to use and for which size. LG, for example, may use AU or ChiMei for some of their smaller panels (40" or less) but use their own panels for some tv's that are 47" or bigger. There are ways to determine what your panel type is but, as I said, it can be challenging.

You can view your panel mfr and version in the service menu that should be done with caution however change the wrong setting and you can brick the set.

Both The Panny w60 WT 60 / WT600 sets use IPS edge light panels so are they are probably LG panels .


The W60 would probably have something like this


The W600 would probably have this one


Like OTTO says the mfrs can change panels in a given model but as long as they are using IPS panels they would likely be be LG.

The published reviews on both sets are not that great . OTOH Sony has a few sets with LG ips panels that seem to to work well.
