Following on from the announcement at CES of its flagship JZ2000 OLED TV, Panasonic today revealed more of its OLED and LED TV line-up for 2021.
Thanks to their Hollywood tuning and superb colour accuracy, Panasonic TVs have always been the best choice for viewing movies and high-quality TV series. In 2021, guided by its See it all. Feel it all concept, Panasonic is using this expertise to further improve the immersive viewing enjoyment of sports, gaming, streaming, and all other content.
Class-leading picture quality delivers all the detail, colour and contrast the content creators intended and is combined with precise, powerful sound to really let you see it all and feel it all.
New OLED TVs: Superb for Cinematic Content
For OLED, Panasonic has complemented the flagship JZ2000 with the new JZ1500, JZ1000 and JZ980 series, with the latter three series available in 65-inch, 55-inch and – new for 2021 – 48-inch sizes.
As with the JZ2000, these sets benefit from the colour tuning of Stefan Sonnenfeld, Founder and CEO of Company 3, and a trusted collaborator of some of the world’s best filmmakers. Combined with Panasonic technical colour accuracy, these new OLED TVs will set the benchmark for watching cinematic and premium content.
New LED TVs: Ideal for Sports and Gaming
Panasonic has also announced three new LED TV series for 2021: the JX940 series (75-inch, 65-inch, 55-inch, 49-inch), the JX850 series (65-inch, 58-inch, 50-inch, 40-inch), and JX800 series (65-inch, 58-inch, 50-inch, 40-inch).
The JX940 series will have particular appeal for sports and gaming enthusiasts. Firstly, like the newly announced OLED TVs, the JX940 also features the new HCX Pro AI processor, meaning it can automatically detect sports broadcasts and optimise the picture quality accordingly. Intelligent Clear Motion also smooths out dynamic actions for flicker-free viewing.
Secondly, the JX940 series comes with a 120Hz, bright HDR Cinema Display Pro panel with wide viewing angles – ideal for watching sports with family or friends.
Dolby Atmos support delivers room-filling stadium sound from the JX940. In addition, it features an innovative iteration of Panasonic’s flexible pedestal design*² . When the pedestals are placed in the outer position, it raises the TV up slightly to allow for a soundbar (such as Panasonic’s design-matching HTB490 model) to be placed below it, further enhancing the audio performance.
JX800: Great for Streaming
The introduction of the new HCX Pro AI processor in Panasonic’s higher-end sets means that Panasonic has now brought its previous generation HCX processor down to core models such as the JX800 series. So now even these sets will have access to the vast wealth of Panasonic colour science expertise.
As a result, the JX800 unlocks a level of picture quality which, in combination with the HDR Bright Panel Plus and a very wide range of streaming services, makes it an ideal budget-friendly family TV for binge watching.
The JX800 also combines, for the first time, Android OS with some of the user-friendliness of Panasonic’s my Home Screen operating system.
my Home Screen 6.0
All new models down to the JX850 series feature the latest iteration of Panasonic’s highly regarded smart TV OS, my Home Screen 6.0. The new version delivers considerable usability improvements.
my Scenery allows you to choose a selection of restful images and videos, or set your own, to reflect your mood or time of day. Perfect for mindfulness sessions or preparing for bed. In addition to photos from LUMIX CLUB, which highlight the beauty of Japan, we also collaborated with LoungeV Studio to provide you with the most beautiful videos to help you relax after a hard day’s work.
A new On Timer allows users to schedule a time when the TV will automatically switch itself on, while users can also pre-select a favourite channel, or which HDMI input they want to display. Alternatively, the TV can also show the new my Scenery feature.
