Panasonic has expanded its range of TV: CES 2016 was announced the new series DX900. To compose it are the TX-58DX900 (58 “) and the TX-65DX900 (65”), equipped with an LCD panel Both of Full LED with advanced control of the backlight (local dimming zones should be hundreds, probably over 500). The local dimming system uses a new structure Honeycomb (honeycomb), designed to more effectively isolate each of the zones in which the backlight is separated, to minimize the leakage of light from one to another (is what Due to the so-called “blooming”).
Panasonic claims that, by virtue of these improvements, the new TVs are able to show the black lower and peak brightness simultaneously without incurring the defects usually associated with local dimming. The DX900 is fully compatible with all the latest technologies, such as HDR, handled with a light that reaches the 1,000 cd / m2 – nits. There is also talk of a cover gamut of DCI-P3 above 90%, in line with the specifications of UHD Alliance, which has in fact these models certified as Ultra HD Premium.
The DX900 were developed with the help of Hollywood colourist and can rely on the processor Studio Master HCX + (Hollywood Film eXperience) 4K, even more accurate than the previous model 4K Studio Master Processor. Among the strengths listed we find an improved version of the 3D Look Up Table (LUT 3D: can we define synthetically as the system can calculate the input signals and convert them into the output signals more suitable for the display in use). Generally they are using about 100 points, to match at best the input signal with the reference to display on the screen. Panasonic has increased this number, increasing it to 8000 points. The most significant concerns an algorithm for color compensation, able to further optimize the reproduction of the color range.
They are obviously present HDMI 2.0a inputs with HDCP 2.2. The Smart TV platform is always based on Firefox OS, as models for 2015. With features “smart” you will have access to channels, apps, videos, websites and streaming services, with your favorite media content accessible directly from the home page . In the course of 2016 it will also bring you an update various novelties, such as the function “send to TV”, which will allow you to share web content using Firefox for Android devices.
Panasonic said the arrival of streaming in Ultra HD and HDR from Amazon (unfortunately not yet available in Italy. Comes complete with the audio section, which includes radiators Passive Quadruple and neodymium magnets. The DX900 will arrive in Italy at the end of February.
Along with the DX900 was announced, for the American market, the OLED TV CZ950 65 “, which apparently will remain on the price list also in the course of 2016 (new models could get to IFA 2016: CZ950 was indeed announced at IFA 2015)
