The Panasonic CR852 series blends a curved design with premium 4K pictures for an uncompromised viewing experience. Displaying an accurate picture quality with a wide colour range and access to just the content you want, this 55-inch TV means that you can enjoy all your favourite content across a very Smart screen.
This 55-inch Panasonic TV is made with authentic materials and is gently curved, complimenting your interior. The curve of the screen also reduces glare and provides an all-round better viewing angle, no matter where you are sat.
4K Ultra HD with 1600Hz RMR
Delivering four times the picture resolution of a standard high-definition TV, you’ll be looking at a picture which is so detailed and pristine it may feel like you are looking at the real world, rather than the TV screen. Coupled with 3840 x 2160 pixels are features such as high brightness/high colour space panels and the powerful Quad Core Pro Engine. These are on hand to tease out every last, tiny detail which 4K Ultra-High definition has to offer.
And with a 1600 RMR (refresh motion rate) you’ll be able to enjoy fast-moving sports and action movies in smooth 4K images.
4K Studio Master Processor
Panasonic’s new 4K Studio Master Processor contains unrivalled picture processing knowledge obtained from the plasma TV’s and professional AV products, to deliver the most accurate picture quality to date. Together with their Wide Colour Phosphor technology, the Panasonic TV will display accurate colours, fine blacks and brilliant brightness.
This TV plays 2D televisions flawlessly, without the need for any relative glasses. However, if you are after the complete cinema experience then active 3D will work a treat (when wearing active 3D glasses – sold separately).
Local Dimming Pro
LCD screens are great for boosting colours and vibrancy, but they can only truly improve contrast if the brightness in dark areas is controlled. Local dimming makes this possible by letting separate clusters of backlights, output different brightness levels. This means that brightness areas can be reduced for dark areas, without compromising the intensity of bright areas. What’s more, dozens of picture 'zones' are analysed and adjusted separately to boost shadow detail.
Studio master colour
By using unique Wide Colour Phosphor Technology capable of producing a wider colour range, the advanced LED backlight covers more than 90% of DCI standards. Studio Master Colour TVs give you a more subtle, naturally toned colour palette which, unlike most LCD TVs, still looks authentic in any scene.
my Home Screen 2.0
Powered by Firefox OS, “my Home Screen” provides quick and intuitive access to the content you want. Expected to be renewed as a single gateway to all the broadcasting channels, apps and connected devices, “my Home Screen” will ensure that you stay on track with all the latest technology developments and content.
Use a variety of apps on across the Panasonic 50” TV screen. Cloud services let you easily use full-fledged, large-data games and a wealth of content services, so you can quickly switch over from watching TV to playing games.
*Internet service required. Available contents may vary by product, model, location and may require fees. Specifications and product information are subject to change.
With two tuners, it means that you have both Freeview HD and freesat HD built-in to the TV. You can split the screen and watch two channels at once, or watch one and record the other to an external drive via the USB port. No more missing out when your favourite shows clash!
With TVs getting slimmer and built-in speakers getting smaller, choosing the right sound system is more important than ever. Soundbars enhance your TVs sound quality and add that extra audio punch to all your movies, games and TV programmes. More affordable and easier to set up than a full size speaker system, they don’t compromise on quality either. The Panasonic SC-HTB690EBK soundbar is the perfect partner for this Panasonic TV. Simply secure the soundbar to the wall, or place infront of the television, to fill your living room with immersive sound.
