Experience Stunning 4K Pictures
Multi HDR Support
Panasonic Ultra HD Blu-ray Players support multiple HDR formats, such as HDR10, which is the standard HDR format for films, and UHD Blu-ray discs. They newly support HDR playback of HDR10+TM dynamic metadata*, the next-generation standard. The synergistic effect achieved with Panasonic’s original high-quality image technologies enables even more precise image expression.
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+, provide optimal playback.
* A firmware upgrade will be required for the UB420 Series.
