Compact in size but a true heavyweight in performance terms, the Panasonic TX-42MZ980B delivers premium picture quality in smaller spaces.

Premium quality, compact TV
The Panasonic TX-42MZ980B is a compact TV with a big spec. Pairing Panasonic’s ultimate picture processor with an OLED screen puts this TV well ahead of its similarly sized rivals and guarantees you superb picture realism. Tuned by a leading Hollywood colourist to produce the most lifelike colour, this TV really does get closer to the director’s originally view. With flagship Dolby Vision IQ and HDR10+ Adaptive onboard, you also get the best possible contrast, giving you ultimate levels of detail.

HCX Pro AI processor gives you the truest colour
For stunning clarity, this TV deploys Panasonic’s top-flight processor. The advanced HCX Pro AI processor uses a sensor to detect the ambient lighting condition and then adjusts the picture to suit. Each colour tone is adjusted individually, giving this Panasonic 42 inch TV the highest ever colour accuracy.

The ideal picture setting for the content, with Auto AI
Panasonic’s smart Auto AI processor identifies the type of content you’re watching, such as movie, sports, music or news, and automatically optimises the picture and sound settings to suit. This gives you the very best in sound and vision, without having to make any user adjustments.

HDR10+ Adaptive and Dolby Vision IQ – ultimate detail in all lighting conditions
HDR10+ Adaptive and Dolby Vision IQ take HDR10 and Dolby Vision to the next level, making them the ultimate HDR picture processors. HDR10+ Adaptive and Dolby Vision IQ use light sensors inside the TV to adjust the picture quality for the best contrast. This improves the picture’s brightness, without compromising the depth. You get a consistent picture quality, however light or dark your room is.

Multi-format HDR support for a stunning picture from all sources
As well as HDR10+ Adaptive and Dolby Vision IQ, this Panasonic 42 inch OLED TV also offers multi-format HDR, including HDR10+, HDR10, HLG and HLG Photo. With so much HDR processing ability on board, you’re guaranteed the most detailed and brightest picture, whatever the HDR format.

Filmmaker Mode – enhanced
Designed for movie lovers, Filmmaker Mode bypasses the TV’s own motion and picture processing settings and lets you see the image just as the director intended. Aspect ratio, colour and frame settings are all faithfully reproduced, giving you a truly cinematic viewing experience. Now featuring an upgraded colour temperature sensor, it detects lighting conditions more accurately, giving you the ideal image, whatever the ambient lighting.

Netflix, optimised
If you’re a fan of Netflix, you’ll love Netflix Adaptive Calibrated Mode. Netflix productions are made to the highest technical standards, ensuring they look just as good on the big screen as they do at home. With the Adaptive Calibrated Mode, you get optimal picture quality, in all lighting conditions.

Epic gaming
Panasonic’s new Game Control Board lets you easily view settings and make changes on the fly. With their Game Mode Extreme setting, you also get epic responsiveness. Game Mode Extreme almost halves input lag, giving you incredible reaction times. With support for AMD FreeSync and NVIDIA G-SYNC, you also get the smoothest, tear-free motion, making gaming more lifelike than ever. Two gaming sound modes switch between RPG mode for a more cinematic sound experience and FPS mode for when you need to hear the subtle sound of an enemy sneaking up on you.

Theatre Surround Pro and Dolby Atmos for spacious sound
Featuring Theatre Surround Pro, the TX-42MZ980B produces a clear, spacious sound. Dolby Atmos compatibility enhances the potential for even more spatial and enveloping audio.

HomeScreen 8.0 for smart TV
The latest version of Panasonic’s HomeScreen makes it quick and easy to access and customise popular settings. Pin favourites, such as YouTube or Netflix streaming apps to the Home Screen, giving you a clear, personalised experience. Support for Google Assistant and Alexa means you can also find content via voice command. With My Scenery, you can even turn the screen into a restful, scenic image, with one of the stored images.

Ideal for smaller rooms or as an ultimate desktop TV/monitor, the Panasonic TX-42MZ980B brings top quality talent to the compact TV market.

Please note, this Smart TV features third party Apps. These Apps may be modified or withdrawn at any time. There may also be a delay in launching some of the featured Apps. Catch-up TV Apps may vary by region. The function and availability of apps is not covered by the manufacturer’s or Richer Sounds’ guarantee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great viewing experiences to look forward to! Chose the Panasonic as an upgrade from a standard Panasonic TV as we find ourselves now watching far more ‘catch-up’ programmes and films and could only do this on our iMac. Viewed this model in store along with equivalents from Samsung and LG but found the Panasonic picture very much true to life which to us is what it is all about. 15 years of continuing reliable performance from our old TV also helped point us toward another Panasonic. Pleased that we also invested in the SC-HTB600 soundbar and subwoofer to get the very best that our budget could run to. Unbiased advice,guidance and patience from the extremely knowledgeable staff at the Chester store was greatly appreciated and we thank them wholeheartedly. Totally happy with our purchase and the buying experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely delighted with my new Panasonic TV I've just installed my new TV. The television looks good, audio visual is excellent and the functionality is just what I was hoping for. The initial set up was simple and easy. With 4 HDMI inputs I am able to connect all my peripheral equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Picture Only just bought this and even though slightly more expensive than other brands like Samsung and LG, the colour reproduction is second to none, as someone that works in the Film/Tv industry its the closest Ive seen to professional monitors that cost tens of thousands £ in Edit suites , very impressive, other makes have more stunning vivid colours which are generally fake and can also wear you out after a while, this Tv is more realistic and accurate and pleasing to the eye.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super-sharp picture and sound Such an improvement on our previous Panasonic TV, which was admittedly 14 years old! Both picture and sound are so crisp, and the dynamic range of both is impressive.
