    Key Features

    Built-in dual tuners - satellite or UHF, we have you covered
    Unlike many other places in the world, New Zealand homes have a distinct mixture of satellite and UHF tuners depending on whereabouts in the country they live. While some other global brands just cover off UHF capable homes with models designed for overseas markets, at Panasonic we have ensured that our TVs are fitted with both tuners especially for Kiwis.

    Built-in Freeview Live TV & On Demand
    Panasonic TVs are set up with Freeview ready to go so that set up is easy and you can enjoy all free-to-air channels right away. More than just live TV, you can now enjoy Freeview On Demand on your Panasonic TV. Binge on entire seasons or catch up on what you have missed, it really is up to you.

    Built-in Netflix, Lightbox, YouTube, and more - Your content at the touch of a button
    How we watch TV has changed and Panasonic know that you’re looking for more than just live, free-to-air programming. Panasonic Smart TVs have your favourite streaming sources already built-in and ready to go.* Panasonic believe your TV should be able to accommodate your varied and unique viewing preferences so that you have a wealth of choice between, live and on demand, free-to-air and subscriptions, and traditional telly and apps. All you need to do is log in once to your content source of choice and it seamlessly becomes part of your TV watching experience.
    * Some content sources and streaming platforms will charge a regular subscription fee independent of Panasonic.

    Better than ever clever functionality - my Home Screen 3.0
    Intuitive operation of the new and improved my Home Screen enables hassle-free viewing and easy customisation. Switch effortlessly between Live TV, apps, and devices to access your content in no more than a couple of clicks. The updated 3.0 design also ensures that you can utilise the home screen without causing disruption to what is currently on screen.

    TV Anytime - take your TV with you wherever you go
    TV Anytime is Panasonic’s unique and innovative feature which allows you to access your TV from a tablet or phone regardless of where in the world you might be. You can use the system to set recordings on your TV or, even better, you can stream live broadcasts or recorded content from your TV to your smart device - even if you're outdoors. All you need is an internet connection and "Panasonic Media Center App" in your smart device. Even though On Demand provides us with easy ways to catch up on missed programmes, there are still things like sport, the news, and live events that we simply don’t want to miss. TV Anytime means you don’t have to miss those moments.

    4K HDR Game Mode
    For many, buying a TV is about more than sport, TV shows, and NETFLIX. TVs are the centre of our gaming experiences too and so Panasonic's engineers got to work to make sure that optimal picture quality was matched by speed and feedback performance for the ultimate in gaming capability. By switching to 4K HDR Game Mode you’ll halve the display lag time from 40 milliseconds to 20 milliseconds. Superior image processing means quicker response times and an experience of instantaneous game play. Additionally, as the name suggests, the mode is perfect for 4K capable games; you’ll notice the difference.

    The best colour ever
    Panasonic’s technology provides natural, beautiful colours using what Panasonic call "6-colour Reproduction".
    Hexa Chroma Drive Pro - An original Panasonic technology for providing natural, beautiful colours using “6-Colour Reproduction”. It means you experience a more subtle, naturally toned colour palette which looks authentic in any scene. Put simply, no matter what you’re watching on TV, the picture quality will be bright, colourful, and natural!
    Wide Colour Space - By using special Wide Colour Phosphor Technology capable of producing a wider colour range, Hexa Chroma Drive covers more than 90% of DCI standards.
    6 Colour Reproduction - Hexa Chroma Drive uses 6-Colour Reproduction, it manages colours by adding 3 complementary colours (CMY) to the 3 primary colours axes (RGB). This creates images which are naturally beautiful.
    3D LUT - Panasonic Premium 4K TVs use a professional colour management system, 3D Look Up Tables, to reproduce colours in extremely fine brightness increments. This ensures that tones look accurate at virtually any brightness level.

    True to the filmmakers’ vision
    Panasonic has long understood that delivering the most accurate TV pictures possible means working with the creative community who actually make all those films and TV shows you love to watch. This is why there’s been a Panasonic Hollywood Laboratory in the heart of Los Angeles for more than 20 years, collaborating with film studios, individual directors, cinematographers, and colourists for the latest technology.

    What is HDR?
    Put simply, it is better. HDR stands for High Dynamic Range. A TV with HDR expands the expressible brights and darks to achieve more detailed images. When images are captured and displayed in 4K HDR they show greater colour and brightness range than even the naked eye can take in resulting in exquisite detail. Some TVs are stuck at an outdated 100-300 nits (brightness measurement) – reflecting the days of CRT TVs (the tube ones that used to weigh a tonne and had to sit a metre away from the wall because they were so bulky). In producing images at this level, a lot of details are lost in dark and bright colour areas. HDR delivers real-life details by increasing the brightness level to 1000 nits.

    Multi HDR support
    Panasonic TVs support now multiple HDR formats, such as HDR10 the standard HDR format for films and UHD Blu-ray discs, and now also Hybrid Log Gamma, the HDR format for broadcast TV developed by the BBC and Japan's NHK.

    Real life images created with high contrast
    Backlight control and signal processing combine to control the brightness in thousands of areas for outstanding contrast expression. They also render fine hues and produce images with exceptional depth.

    IPS LED Super Bright Panel Plus
    Makes pictures look crisper and more dynamic with a wide viewing angle. Everything from colour vibrancy and naturalism to sharpness and clarity benefits from extra brightness. IPS LED Super Bright Plus technology injects more brightness into pictures by putting high-efficiency LED lights behind an exceptionally transmissive IPS panel. Plus, the panel allows for equally gorgeous pictures, colours, and contrast, from any viewing angle.

    Local Dimming Pro
    Real-life images created with high contrast Backlight control and signal processing combine to control the brightness in thousands of areas for outstanding contrast expression. They also render fine hues and produce images with
    exceptional depth.

    Seamless 360° design
    Designed with you in mind and versatile enough to suit any environment, the refined look of the 2018 Panasonic Television Collection is the result of design centred on the concept of 360° of minimalist elegance. Simple and timeless, these televisions are your window to the world and Panasonic have ensured the view is stunning.

    Class in glass
    Turning your TV into a window to the world. The glass frames around the new FX800 create a dazzling impression of beautiful pictures emerging as if from nowhere. Their seamless 360 degrees design and the elegantly minimalist appearance looks stunning in any room, and by removing  the traditional sense of the ‘technology’ behind the pictures, they make it easier to become totally immersed in what you’re watching.
