The Ultra HD Premium Certified UB820 delivers awe-inspiring cinema quality entertainment to your 4K TV. As well as playing 4K Ultra HD Blu-rays, it upscales non-4K content. Supporting multiple HDR formats, and armed with Panasonic's 4K High-Precision Chroma and Studio Colour HCX Processors, it offers a Hollywood-worthy picture quality of stunning detail, depth, and staggering colour range. With High Resolution Audio, its sound quality is just as amazing as the visuals, and you can connect it to the internet via built-in Wi-Fi to open up the world of 4K streaming.
Ultra High Definition Visuals
The next phase in visual entertainment, Ultra HD Blu-ray allows you to watch movies in unprecedented detail. With four times the resolution and pixel density of a standard Blu-ray disc, the picture gives incredible depth, natural motion, and realism.
Optimised HDR Picture
This player supports multiple HDR formats so you'll get the full, glorious HDR treatment with pin-point accuracy. Even if your 4K TV doesn't have colour-boosting High Dynamic Range this player uses Optimised Tone Remapping to deliver the best possible picture quality on a standard dynamic range television.
Studio Colour HCX Processor
Tuned by a top Hollywood colourist, Panasonic’s Hollywood Cinema Experience processor gives blacker blacks, whiter whites, lustrous contrast, and a wider colour range that does true justice to the film-makers' vision.
4K High-Precision Chroma Processor
The colours on your screen are given greater definition, bringing them to vivid life. 4K High-Precision Chroma Processor signals are interpolated into 4K resolution for visuals that are rich in natural texture, depth, and astonishing colour.
With 4K Direct Chroma Upscaling, the UB820 converts Full HD content into a 4K signal to give it the sparkling Ultra High Definition makeover. So Full HD films, programmes and standard Blu-rays look better than ever before.
Relive your most cherished moments on the big screen in vivid detail with 4K Networking. It allows you to connect your 4K camcorder or camera to your 4K TV, displaying your travelling videos and images in magnificent high-resolution. And you can connect the UB820 to the internet over Wi-Fi to wirelessly stream 4K content from services like Netflix and Amazon (subscription required).
High Resolution Audio
The UB820 places you further into the action with High-Resolution Audio Playback. It enhances the sound's detail, to give you a more authentic, immersive listening experience of master studio sound quality.
