Picture Perfection

OLED Screen – the Foundation of Great TV Performance

HZ980 Series’ OLED screen has individually illuminated pixels. With no need for a backlight, the black elements of the picture stay pitch black – creating greater contrast and real sense of picture depth.

HCX* Pro Intelligent Processor

Many decades of TV tech know-how, and a long collaboration with Hollywood, is distilled into Panasonic’s best picture processor yet. It’s the powerful brain inside HZ980 – instantly analysing the picture, adjusting the colour, contrast and clarity for the best performance from the OLED screen. *Hollywood Cinema eXperience
