Panasonic has announced that its 2019 line-up of OLED televisions will support Netflix Calibrated Mode, a display mode that configures the TV the same way creators calibrate their monitors in post-production, bringing studio quality picture quality mastering right to the living room.
With this move, Panasonic expands its delivery of the most accurate images to streaming content too.
Panasonic and Netflix share a long history of working together, delivering entertainment in the best possible quality. Through this close partnership, Panasonic OLED televisions (the GZ2000 series, GZ1500 series, GZ1000 series, and GZ950 series models) will now have the capability to feature Netflix TV shows and films in the truest form. With one simple menu setting, Netflix members will experience precise colours, accurate dynamic contrast and true motion – exactly as the creator intended.
Netflix Calibrated Mode applies to the entire Netflix catalogue, including TV series, documentaries, films and more.
“Quality means everything to us, and we’re thrilled to bring Netflix Calibrated Mode to Panasonic’s OLED TVs so our members have the choice to experience amazing storytelling on Netflix in the most authentic way,” said Rob Caruso, Vice President of Device Partner Engagements at Netflix.
Yasushi Murayama, Head of Audio Visual Products for Panasonic in Europe, added: “Panasonic’s theme for 2019 has been to deliver ‘more’ Hollywood to ‘more’ homes. We have done this by bringing Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos all the way down to our core-range models. With this collaboration with Netflix we are doing it again: bringing studio quality picture mastering to more viewers.”
