Panasonic has introduced the new generation of its OLED TV series. MZC2004 series TVs are available in diagonals of 55, 65 and 77 inches and are mainly distinguished by brightness, sharpness and sound.
Panasonic introduced its MZC2004 TV series. The name is deceiving: these are not tube devices from the Britney Spears era, but the latest generation Panasonic OLEDs with diagonals of 55, 65 or 77 inches.
The combination of Panasonic’s Master OLED Ultimate panel, precision lens array technology and multi-layer heat dissipation is said to ensure high brightness and contrast values. The HCX Pro AI internal processor should also ensure color accuracy and detail clarity.

Help from Hollywood
According to the manufacturer, the new TVs have a large number of HDR formats, including Dolby Vision IQ, HDR10 + Adaptive, and HLG Photo. It is said that Panasonic has also revised its film maker mode. Sensors in the device can now adjust color temperature and brightness based on the environment and time of day. The function of manually setting these values can also be turned off according to your own ideas. Panasonic also worked with renowned Hollywood film color designer Stefan Sonnenfeld to match the Filmmaker Mode colors.
Speaking of Hollywood: Panasonic wants to bring cinema sound into the living room with a built-in 360-degree sound system. An array of up and down speakers delivers 3D Dolby Atmos sound. In addition, the Japanese manufacturer bundles several spatial sound modes into its new TVs. “Selection mode” focuses the sound on a point in the room, the so-called “zone mode” distributes it to a group of people in a specific area in the room, and “spot mode” increases the volume in order to select a narrow area in the room. There is also a switchable bass boost.
With the new 4k rebroadcast function, the manufacturer promises a clear and sharp streaming experience, even with standard definition providers. The algorithm recognizes surfaces, textures, and edges and then processes them, removing any noise, Panasonic says.
Games: Each genre gets its own sound mode
Panasonic also wants to keep up with the competition when it comes to gaming and equip its new TVs with a number of new functions. For example, devices are compatible with HDMI 2.1 and equipped with AMD Freesync Premium and NVIDIA G-Sync. The 4k resolution and the refresh rate of up to 120Hz should ensure a smooth picture. When connected to a system with an NVIDIA RTX graphics card, the TV automatically detects it and adjusts the input lag and VRR settings to reduce stuttering and tearing. Sonically, Panasonic promises several game sound modes for different genres. First-person shooters, for example, will have a different sound than RPGs.

All new Panasonic OLED TVs come with the latest version of the My Home Screen smart home system. This supports all major video streaming services. The quick menu also provides access to several settings for hearing and visually impaired users. The company writes that Panasonic has worked with the German Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired to do so. For example, visually impaired users can use audio feedback to learn how to map the buttons on the remote control.
