Experience Stunning 4K Pictures
Multi HDR Support
Panasonic Ultra HD Blu-ray Players support multiple HDR formats, such as HDR10, which is the standard HDR format for films, and UHD Blu-ray discs. They newly support HDR playback of HDR10+™ dynamic metadata, the next-generation standard. And they are compatible with Dolby Vison™ and Hybrid Log-Gamma. The synergistic effect achieved with Panasonic's original high-quality image technologies enables even more precise image expression.
Tone mapping is used to adjust the brightness level of the content. And even HDR images from ordinary HDR10 and TV footage, which do not support special new formats like HDR10+ and Dolby Vision, provide optimal playback.
Stunning Colour and Details
4K High-Precision Chroma Processor
Technologies from Panasonic Hollywood Laboratory, the base for Blu-ray Disc Research & Development, are applied to Panasonic‘s unique “4K High Precision Chroma Processing.” 4K image colour signals (4:2:0) are interpolated into 4K (4:4:4) by a multi-tap chroma process, for natural textures and depth.
Experience Studio Master Sound Quality
High-Resolution Audio Playback
This model is designed for high-resolution audio reproduction. In addition to the conventional WAV/FLAC/MP3/AAC/WMA/AIFF formats, DSD (5.6 MHz/2.8 MHz) and ALAC music files can be reproduced. Simply connect to your home audio system to enjoy music sources equivalent to studio master sound quality.
