First of all, we remind readers that at the very beginning of the year, Panasonic introduced its flagship this year – OLED LZ2000 . This was followed by a long period of silence and now, after 5 months, the company is sharing another news about TVs in 2022.
So, the OLED 2022 line will consist of four models. The flagship will be campaigned by the LZ1500 , LZ1000 and LZ980 models . It is noteworthy that all of them will be equipped with the latest advanced OLED.EX panels .
“All 2022 OLED models have been specially tuned by Panasonic engineers to provide increased peak brightness in True Cinema, Cinema, Filmmaker and Professional modes. In addition, the blue color volume has been improved while maintaining high fidelity in the reproduction of various shades thanks to the HCX Pro AI processor , ”the company said.
New items will be available in the following diagonals:
LZ2000 – 77, 65 and 55 inches;
LZ1500 – 65, 55, 48 and 42 inches;
LZ1000 – 65 and 55 inches;
LZ980 – 65, 55, 43 and 42 inches.
LZ2000 and LZ1500 , as more advanced models, will be labeled Master OLED Pro . At the same time, due to technical limitations associated with the small screen size, the 48 and 42 – inch versions of the LZ1500 do not have the same high peak brightness as their larger counterparts. We note that the 42 -inch OLED TV is produced by Panasonic for the first time .
In addition to the screen, the flagship LZ2000 stands out from the rest of the models with its powerful and sophisticated audio system, consisting of many multi-directional speakers.
All of these TVs are powered by last year’s HCX Pro AI processor , support HDR (HDR10, HDR10+, Dolby Vision, HLG, HLG Photo), AMD FreeSync Premium , HDMI 2.1 (2 ports each), and are also equipped with Dolby Atmos and AV1 decoders .
As a new feature this year, they will have a quick access panel to the Game Control Board game settings . In addition, Panasonic announces a reduction in the delay of the incoming signal with a frequency of 60 Hz , an improvement in the quality of the automatic adjustment of picture parameters depending on the ambient light, and also announces the release of the next version of the My Home Screen 7.0 smart platform .
“ OLED models use improved sensors to recognize the ambient color temperature and fine-tune the screen to provide a more realistic image. It is known that the human eye perceives white color differently depending on the lighting conditions. For example, our technology takes into account the fact that most European homes use warm light at night, which causes the light tones on the screen to take on a bluish cold tint,” Panasonic explained .
