Want to understand the Panasonic TVs coming your way? Look no Further, as TechRadar has your comprehensive, definitive, all-round perfect round-up of the year’s Panasonic TVs — now that many OLED and LCD televisions have hit the shelves, with much more about how before IFA 2019 starts the whole cycle of statements around again.
Panasonic went large on a brand new assortment of 4K Blu-ray gamers earlier in the calendar year, but regarding televisions, the business is focusing attention on the GZ2000 — what Panasonic is calling’the world’s most cinematic TV’ — an OLED TV with color tuning straight out of Hollywood.
We’ve since got to test out an additional three OLED televisions, the GZ1500 and GZ950 / GZ1000, Which share the panel and processor, but vary in model sizes and the level of quality on offer. Additionally, there are a number of updates to the past year’s 4K HDR TVs, using a new assortment of’GX’ collections (such as the five-star GX800) replacing last year’s FX750, FX740, FX700, and FX600 — and a couple Full HD models too as seen below.
Maintain In mind that Panasonic no longer ships to the United States, though we are going to be seeing these collections come to the UK, EU, Canada, and Australia.
For More info on what makes a Panasonic TV panel tick, and also the 2019 Panasonic TVs coming this season slated for launch, read on below.
Panasonic 2019 TV technologies
The Future of Panasonic looks… organic. While the Japanese manufacturer only released two OLED versions this past year, it has doubled down with a total four collections packed with’natural LED’ panels, which utilize an organic picture able to recapture its own light, as opposed to using a backlight on a regular LCD display.
Like LG or Sony, Panasonic is looking to OLED panels for its premium TVs, making use of the deeper black levels of this technology and enhanced contrast for a richer picture.
An identical is actually used by three of its four OLED models Panel, but change the speakers using some to be able to offer you a audio performance ditching a form factor. (The upward-firing speakers running the rear of this GZ2000 resemble something of a chimney.)
Each the new OLED TVs feature an upgraded HCX PRO Intelligent Processor employed in 2018’s OLEDs. With precisely the same manufacturer — LG — the means by which technically producing each OLED panel the images are processed is now a significant way for producers to differentiate their premium collections from the competition.
Panasonic States the HCX chip offers great high quality thanks to its’Dynamic LUT’ (or look-up table) system. This tracks the brightness of each scene in a film to deliver the very best color accuracy.
Panasonic is also Making a lot of its links to Hollywood production studios, together with the flagship GZ2000 momodelseaturing colour correction Stefan Sonnenfeld.
Producers are increasingly forced to encourage the various HDR formats out there, and Panasonic isareushing outside the boat. Each of the OLED sets this year (and some LCD) include voice controls through Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa, Dolby Atmos audio, support for Dolby Vision and HDR10+ video formats.
Panasonic can also be headquartered in Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) broadcasts (which are coded in both SDR and HDR) and the very distinct HLG photograph format (for showing Lumix camera stills on Panasonic 4K TVs).
Compare that to last year’s OLEDs from Panasonic — FZ950 and FZ800 — neither of which affirmed Dolby Vision, even as Panasonic brings the enhanced HDR format to more of its 4K Blu-ray players.
