PANASONIC ANDROID TVS:
As reported exclusively by FlatpanelsHD in December 2019, Panasonic had plans to introduce its first-ever Android TVs in Europe this year. Here they are in the form of the mid-range HX7 series; 43-inch to 65-inch LCD TVs with 4K Resolution.

While the TV hardware is pretty basic, the move is noteworthy because Panasonic like LG and Samsung has spent years developing and refining its own TV platform. First alone and later in collaboration with Mozilla and its Firefox OS. After Mozilla threw in the towel, Panasonic renamed Firefox OS to MyHomeScreen and continued development.

Is this an acknowledgment from Panasonic that it needs a partner like Google to stay competitive against the likes of Samsung’s Tizen, LG’s webOS, and Apple’s tvOS? We would not go as far. From our sources, we have heard it described as an experiment. If it turns out to be a big seller, Panasonic may decide to implement Android in more of its TVs but there is no guarantee that it will happen.

APPS, CHROMECAST AND MORE:
Nevertheless, it still raises interesting questions. For example, why would a buyer pick the more expensive but very similar (in terms of display technology) HX800 or even HX900 when HX700 comes with the full Android TV platform?

Besides a much wider selection of apps and games, Android TVs offer built-in Chromecast, Google Assistant, and more. Also worth noting; HX700 will probably be Panasonic’s first TVs with Disney+. On the other hand you will not Panasonic’s advanced tuner features like TV Anywhere and in-house streaming. The remote control relies on Bluetooth and has a built-in microphone for Google Assistant.

The TVs support HDR with three formats; HDR10, HLG, and Dolby Vision. However, adjust your expectations. The LCD TVs are not equipped with LED zone dimming or similar technologies required to deliver the HDR picture experience. HX700 has a black frame while HX710 has a silver-colored frame. They are otherwise identical and will both be available in Europe in 43-inch, 50-inch, 55-inch, and 65-inch sizes starting from October/November, depending on your region.

Panasonic Launches New Flagship HZ2000 OLED TV for 2020.

Date: 31 Jul 2020 –
Written by: Rasmus Larsen –


The successor to last year’s GZ2000, which received our Reference Award, has arrived. HZ2000 features the 2020 OLED panel with improved BFI, Filmmaker Mode, improved sound, and more.

HZ2000 REPLACES GZ2000:
Last year’s GZ2000 was the first TV to use a customized version of LG. Display’s standard OLED panel, which is used in all OLED TVs on the market today. This panel has higher average and peak brightness (up to 1000 nits) and we gave it our Reference Award.

Here comes the successor in the form of HZ2000. On top of improved brightness capabilities, the OLED panel features the improved BFI (Black Frame Insertion) system of the 2020 OLED panel.

In addition, Panasonic says that HZ2000 offers an improved 3.0.2-channel speaker system for Dolby Atmos as well as HDMI eARC. It also comes with Filmmaker Mode and Dolby Vision IQ – like HZ1000 that we recently reviewed.

Finally, the company says that version 5.0 of its MyHomeScreen TV platform has some user interface tweaks. There are still no plans to provide software updates for MyHomeScreen after purchase.

On the other hand Panasonic is not yet ready to move to HDMI 2.1, which means that HZ2000 may not be an ideal partner for next-generation game consoles and video players. LG, Samsung and Sony have all begun the transition to HDMI 2.1 in high-end 4K TVs.

Panasonic HZ2000 is available now in Europe in 55 and 65 inch sizes starting at £3300 / €2900.

Panasonic HZ980 OLED TVs Join 2020 Line-Up

Date: 15 Jun 2020 –
Written by: Rasmus Larsen


Panasonic has taken the wraps of yet another range of 4K OLED TVs that will be part of its 2020 line-up for Europe. HZ980 features HDR10+, Dolby Vision, and Atmos.

FOUR OLED TV RANGES:
In addition to the flagship HZ2000 and the more affordable HZ1500 and HZ1000 ranges, Panasonic will this year offer HZ980 OLED TVs in 55 and 65 inches. HZ980 will be Panasonic’s most affordable OLED TVs in 2020 but the TVs still come with 4K resolution, HDR10+, Dolby Vision, HDMI eARC, and Dolby Atmos support. New features for 2020 such as Filmmaker Mode and Dolby Vision IQ are also included.

In the other hand you are not getting the swivel stand of HZ1000 and the ‘Smooth Motion Drive Pro’ system gets a downgrade to non-Pro. Further specifications are available by following the link below.

Like LG and Philips, Panasonic now has a wide line-up of OLED TVs. Sony, Toshiba, Grundig, Bang & Olufsen and other brands are also selling OLED TVs in Europe. Panasonic HZ980 will be available in Europe from July starting at €1800 / £1700 for a 55-inch model.

Panasonic 2020 LCD TVs Now Available

Date: 02 Jun 2020
Written by: Rasmus Larsen


Panasonic has launched its 2020 HX models in Europe. The new LCD TVs in 40 to 75 inch sizes feature 4K resolution and the latest version of My Home Screen.

PANASONIC 2020 LCD TVS:
Panasonic’s new LCD TVs for 2020, unveiled in February, are now rolling out in Europe. The company will also launch new OLED TVs soon.

HX940, HX900 and HX800 are edge-lit LCD TV ranges with 4K resolution. The TVs are powered by the company’s HCX video processor (HCX Pro in HX940) and feature HDR support. However, due to the TVs’ edge-lit LCD panels you should step up to the OLED models if you seek the HDR picture experience.

The TVs are also capable of decoding and outputting Dolby Atmos to an external soundbar or receiver system. Apps such as Netflix are accessible via Panasonic’s My Home Screen platform that has reached version 5.0 in the 2020 models.

Panasonic 2020 TV Line-Up HX900 and HX940

HX900 and HX940 feature a switch stand that can be adjusted between wide and narrow position. Panasonic says that the narrow configuration lets users buy a larger TV without having to also replace furniture at home.

Panasonic’s TVs will compete with mid-range LCD TVs from brands such LG and Samsung. Unlike its competitors, Panasonic has no LCD TVs with zone dimming capabilities this year.

Panasonic HX800, HX900 and HX940 are rolling out now in Europe.

4K UHD is Here to Stay.

Emanuel Pereira 

Written by: Emanuel Pereira

For those of you who have bought, or received as as gift, a 4K UHD TV congrats! You are not invested in a faddish piece of home entertainment consumer electronics in which the premium feature of your new display, like 3DTV, is practically useless for the lack of content.

The big difference with this evolutionary step in displays now, as compared to the 2000’s OTA (over the air) broadcast transition to HDTV, is that this time it’s OTT (over the top) content streaming providers who didn’t exist back then, such as Netflix and Amazon that have raised the bar, and consumers are buying. The rate of adoption for UHD TV is impressive and appears to be steeper than HDTV.4k UHD Screen

Netflix has been busy creating content in quality higher than many Hollywood television studios have been able to keep pace with, and have set the standard for themselves. However that is beginning to change. Crown Media, the owners of the Hallmark channel, as of now requires producers to deliver content in 4K. It’s only a matter of time now for other broadcasters to follow suit.

On the professional side, HDCam SR tape as a mastering format is diminishing. It’s been a few years now since broadcasters have begun taking digital delivery of program content, usually in the form of a ProRes 422 HQ QuickTime file transmitted digitally on the Aspera platform. The issue with ProRes Quicktime is that by nature it is an insecure format. Anyone who possesses the file can open it. This has created a need for a content container file format such as the encrypted DCP (digital cinema package) format used to distribute theatrical content. Many, including Netflix are banking on IMF (interoperable mastering format) as being the universal container for 4K UHD HDR masters. Tape will still be in existence, though in the LTO format for physical archiving purposes.

Meanwhile the Blu-ray distribution window sees new life as a 4K UHD medium providing Hollywood movies to the home through Sony’s Playstation 4 Pro. It seemed only a few years ago that Blu-ray’s days were numbered, with the emergence of on demand streaming content libraries of big title movies. But given that titles aren’t consistently or even permanently available on all platforms, and the recent obsolesce of the .mp3 music encoding format, there appears to still be value in having entertainment in a physical medium that the purchaser can hold onto and play any number of times without worry of having that right they licensed being taken away arbitrarily.

What are The Best TV Brands?

It May Be Time to Reevaluate Your Brand Loyalty

Credit:

Written by: Lee Neikirk

Date: December 3, 2019

Recommendations are independently chosen by Reviewed’s editors. Purchases you make through our links may earn us a commission.

The history of dominant brands in the TV marketplace is a long and fascinating one. After World War II, Japan ramped up nationwide efforts to secure dominance in many consumer electronics markets, the end result being that by the latter half of the 1990s, Japanese brands like Sony, Panasonic, and Toshiba were dominant in the marketplace.

If you’re a little older, you may remember a time when fledgling TV brands Samsung and Lucky Goldstar—er, LG—were first crowding onto the shelves, and the consensus was that the LED TVs coming out of South Korea were of lesser quality than their Japanese counterparts.

However, those days are way behind us: Samsung and LG are beloved TV brands in the states, Panasonic has exited the US market entirely, and Chinese brands are gaining footing, especially in value brackets. If you’re still laboring under the idea that it’s Sony or nothing, it might be time to update your notions about TV brands, especially if you want to get your hands on the very best TVs.

We should note the list below is not in order of quality—we let our reviews and roundups do the talking there.

TV-brands-SAMSUNG
Samsung Incredibly Popular Still, With Beautiful High Quality TVs

Samsung has been the leader in the TV market for a long time now, owning the top market position year after year. Samsung may not always offer the best TV on the market—our reviews typically favor OLED models, which Samsung does not make anymore—but across the board its thin, sleek TVs have proven incredibly popular with consumers.

As it stands, Samsung’s premium UHD LED TVs—now dubbed ‘QLED’ by Samsung—have struggled to beat out competing OLED models for several years, but overall the company’s TVs are still some of the best on the market. Samsung TVs are typically well-designed, with a slew of high-end features and excellent build quality.

You are definitely paying (a little) more for the Samsung name–especially early in the year before prices drop—but you can also expect to get a high-quality TV even if you’re not spending a ton.

Sony: Name recognition and phenomenal picture quality.

TV-brands-SONY
Sony Name Recognition and Phenomenal Picture Quality

Sony is not quite the dominant player in the US market that it once was. The company even spun off its TV division (“BRAVIA,” which stands for Best Resolution Audio Video Integrated Architecture), something it also did for its struggling VAIO laptop business.

However, in 2019, Sony seems poised for a comeback, hitting the US market with a long list of 4K and HDR TVs, including a couple of ultra-premium OLED models. While Sony TVs tend to be a little pricier than certain competitors, they also tend to be high quality TVs that look great right out of the box.

Of course, no matter the brand, not every TV is going to be a winner even if the brand’s output is usually reliable—that’s what TV reviews are for. But generally, Sony’s high-end 4K and OLED TVs are beautiful to behold.

LG: OLED TVs are superior, but prices are still fairly high.

TV-brands-LG
LG OLED TVs are Superior, But Prices Are Still Fairly High

LG’s OLED TVs have widely been considered to be the best TVs in the market for around five years now. OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) technology operates in a fundamentally different way than traditional LED/LCD tech, and at this point we can all agree that it’s better—especially in a dark room.

However, LG’s top 2019 OLED TVs—from the “affordable” C9 OLED TV up through the extravagant W9 “wallpaper” OLED—don’t come cheap. Even the cheapest, on sale, refurb’d 55-inch OLED TVs still retail around $1,300. They look great, but that’s a ton of money for most people.

Outside of LG’s OLEDs, we typically aren’t overly impressed with the company’s IPS panel-equipped LED TVs. They aren’t bad at all, but they don’t sweep the top spot in brackets and categories the way that the company’s OLEDs do. Even still, LG continues to be one of the best brands for its OLED TVs alone.

Vizio: Still makes some of the best TVs for the money.

TV-brands-VIZIO
Vizio Still Makes Some of The Best TVs For The Money

It used to be Vizio TVs were known for giving you the best picture quality at the lowest price possible. You’d get one at Walmart or Costco, and it looked like every corner had been cut except maybe the raw picture quality. But if you wanted a massive 70-inch TV for thousands less than the competition, Vizio was the way to go.

Nowadays, not only does Vizio still produce TVs that punch well above their weight, but Vizio competes pretty handily in the premium sphere, too. Take last year’s P-Series Quantum: a 65-inch 4K/HDR smart TV with quantum dots that started at just $2,200 and is now available for around $1,500. It was up there in quality with some of the best Samsung “QLED” TVs and even LG’s OLED TVs.

This year, we’re expecting a lot of great 2019 TVs from Vizio, including a new “V” Series which ostensibly serves as Vizio’s entry-level series. While some Vizio TVs aim a little too low for our tastes, the middle- and upper-tier models (M-Series, P Series) are quality picks year after year.

TCL: A newer player with some fantastic sub $1,000 TVs.

TV-brands-TCL
TCL A Newer Player With Some Fantastic Sub $1,000 TVs

If you haven’t heard of TCL, you’re in for a surprise. There’s a lot of “I’ve never heard of that brand” brands in the TV market you should usually avoid. Players like Element, SuperSonic, and even better known brands like Westinghouse, Insignia, and Dynex may be on your radar, but in our experience they’re generally unreliable in everyday circumstances.

China’s TCL is the exception. For the last couple of years, the brand has swept the “high value” categories of most sites, releasing consistently
excellent 4K/HDR Roku TVs that even AV geeks and cinephiles have been very excited about.

We haven’t seen the 2019 version yet, but the 2018 TCL 6 Series TVs were some of our favorites for good reason: you could get a 55-inch 4K/HDR smart TV for $600, and it was really darn good. That’s the dream, folks, and it’s something TCL has been making a reality.

If value is your game, take a look at the TCL TVs next time you’re thinking of upgrading.

Hisense: A massive worldwide force just cracking the US market.

TV-brands-HISENSE
Hisense A Massive Worldwide Force Just Cracking the US Market

Last but definitely not least, Hisense TVs have come a long way in the last few years, with the company owning significant marketshare worldwide and in markets like Australia. While the company has struggled to get a clean foothold in the US market, generally Hisense TVs (which include Sharp-branded sets in the states) are good, quality TVs.

The main issue with Hisense has been availability. We’ve tested some excellent high-end Hisense TVs only for them to be stuck “backordered” for months on end. That does seem to be getting better, but it pays to do your research to make sure the Hisense model you’re about to buy is actually worth it.

On the lower end of things, Hisense TVs tend to be more readily available and frequently compete with the best TVs around $500. The company’s Roku TVs (and especially its 8 Series from the last couple years) have been strong value picks, and are definitely worth considering.

4K is here to stay, says experts.

Written by: Maricris Francisco

Jan 03, 2017 11:00 AM EST

CES 2017, the consumer electronics trade show held annually in Las Vegas, is about to begin and as usual, the event will be a showcase of what technology has to offer for us in the new year.

TV technology is one of the spectacles expected to make a splash in this year’s CES. This includes the 4K Ultra HD TVs that are expected to exceed the TV displays we saw in 2016.

You can expect big players such as Samsung, LG, Sony, and Panasonic to hold down the fort, while emerging stars such as Hisense, TLC, and LeEco will make their presence felt with their flashy TV displays.

TV TRENDS TO WATCH OUT FOR IN CES 2017:

There is no doubt about it: 4K display is here to stay, says Stephan Jukic of 4k.com Only a couple of years ago, tech watchers dismissed this display technology, but it has become the standard in all smart TV units of today.

All of the major TV manufacturers such as Samsung, Sony, Vizio, and LG are releasing their own versions of a 4K resolution TV, ranging from high-end units to affordable ones.

In 2016, the 4K technology put the 1080p in a corner. In 2017, you can expect the 4K Ultra HD to completely wipe it out of the picture, especially now that 4K content is getting to be more accessible, thanks to Netflix, Amazon, and Ultra HD Blu-Ray discs. 4K Ultra HD will provide TV viewers with an experience that is four times sharper than the one from a standard HD.

HDR IN 4K TV:

Another trend to watch out for is the high dynamic range HDR. This will be a must-have feature for 4K TVs that are in the upper midrange to high end.

HDR provides great contrast between the lightest and darkest images, and also produces a wider range of colors so that your TV can create a more vivid image.

IMPROVED COLOR AND PEAK BRIGHTNESS IN TVs:

CES will also showcase TVs with improved color performance due to quantum dot technology, beginning with the Samsung QLED TV. We can also expect TVs with remarkable peak brightness.

Jukic is looking forward to one model in particular: the OLED 4K HDR TVs from LG.

Those that come out after CES 2017 will “ramp up their peak brightness even further to some stunning new levels that were previously unheard of for OLED display,” he writes.

If even the 2016 LG B6 — the brand’s brightest OLED TV for 2016 — could manage to hit over 700 nits of peak brightness most SDR LCD TVs can’t even manage 400, then it will be exciting to see what the best that the 2017 models can do is, Jukic adds.

If you are buying a new TV this year, CES 2017 will surely have plenty to offer.
