CES: New Panasonic OLED TVs first to support HDR10+

Panasonic has debuted what are said to be the world’s first OLED TVs to support HDR10+ dynamic metadata technology.

Launched at CES, the four new models will be available across two ranges – FZ950 (pictured) and FZ800 – in 65in and 55in screen sizes.

HDR10+ is an open, royalty-free, dynamic metadata platform for High Dynamic Range (HDR), created by 20th Century Fox, Panasonic and Samsung. Once the HDR10+ licence programme is open, the three founding companies will incorporate HDR10+ technologies in all future UHD movie releases, selected TVs and UHD Blu-ray players, and other products.

Panasonic TVs that support HDR10+ dynamic metadata technology will be able to stream the entire Amazon Prime Video library in HDR10+.

In addition, Panasonic’s OLED screens offer support for HDR10 – the standard HDR format, which is featured on the UHD Blu-ray format and across 4K HDR content from streaming services such as Netflix, Amazon and YouTube. Also offered on all screens is HLG, the HDR format compatible with TV broadcasts, which are expected to expand in the near future.

Panasonic’s FZ950 range of TVs will feature a thin ‘Tuned by Technics Dynamic Blade Speaker’, to deliver improved sound quality.
