If there’s one TV manufacturer we haven’t much from in regards to Ultra HD, it’s Panasonic. There was a brief mention at last year’s CES about it, but little more last year. In 2014, though, that changes.
Announced this week, Panasonic will be joining big time players such as Sony, Samsung, and LG with a 4K Ultra High Definition TV this year, with the AX800, a TV that will span two sizes, including a 58 inch and a 65 inch model.
The TVs will include a new LED backlight designed to provide a wider colour gamut producing what Panasonic describes as “accurate colour expression,” strong contrast from the Local Dimming Pro backlight control, and an upscaling engine for the 4K resolution which Panasonic calls “4K Fine Remaster Engine.”
