Multi HDR Support

The DP-UB9000 supports multiple HDR formats, such as HDR10 (which is the standard HDR format for films and UHD Blu-ray discs) and HDR10+ dynamic metadata, and is compatible with Dolby Vison and HDG – Hybrid Log-Gamma. This multi format combination delivers precise image expression.

HDR Content with Even Greater Detail

Panasonic’s original image processing technologies achieve HDR images with higher definition by utilising our unique adjustment functions. 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.

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

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/11.2MHz) and ALAC music files can be reproduced. Simply connect to your home audio system to enjoy music sources equivalent to studio master sound quality.

  1. Rated 5 out of 5


    First impression is how heavy it is. Like alot of the reviewers have said – at nearly 8kg’s it reminds me of the big old Pioneer players of old.
    Top cover is a heavy metal plate held on by 4 tiny screws that require an allen key.
    Looking under the hood there is a separate audio board behind the disc drive. Without totally disassembling it it’s hard to tell if the power supply board is separate to the video board.
    Unit comes with a proper full size backlit remote which is an improvement on the usual little plastic panasonic Blu Ray Remotes. The keys are a comfortable size and there is a dedicated Netflix button.
    Menu wise it’s identical to the 820. I’ve not gone through and compared each menu option but it seems to have identical options.
    Disc loading is super fast!
    Overall i was really impressed.
