OLED and Hollywood combine to make the Panasonic TX-55HZ980B a thrilling watch.

OLED for the best in picture quality
Using individual Organic Light-Emitting Diodes, OLED screens don’t require a backlight like conventional LED TVs do. This means you get more consistent and accurate colour, right across the screen. It also delivers blacks so deep that the contrast is near limitless. For the truest colour possible, OLED is the brightest and best.

OLED enhanced by Panasonic’s HCX Pro Intelligent Processor
Using the Pro version of Panasonic’s HCX (Hollywood Cinema eXperience) chip, this Panasonic 55 inch TV packs the processing to make the most of OLED technology. Tuned by a leading Hollywood colourist, the TX-55HZ980B delivers total picture accuracy and remains true to the director’s vision.

Dolby Vision IQ – ultimate detail
Dolby Vision IQ takes Dolby Vision to the next level, making it the ultimate HDR-type picture processor. Dolby Vision IQ version uses data within the signal and light sensors inside the TV to adjust the picture quality for the best contrast. This improves the picture’s brightness, without ‘washing out’ the depth. You get a consistent picture quality, however light or dark your room is. Whether you’re watching a brightly lit sports event or moody movie, Dolby Vision IQ adjusts to suit.

Multi-format HDR support for a stunning picture from all sources
As well as Dolby Vision and Vision IQ, this Panasonic 55 inch OLED TV also offers multi-format HDR – including HDR10+. HDR10+ offers scene-by-scene HDR mastering for the truest, most accurate HDR picture technology. Each scene is optimised, meaning the maximum amount of detail is shown – even in the brightest or darkest moments.

See the picture exactly as originally intended, with Filmmaker Mode
Featuring exclusive technology from Panasonic, Filmmaker Mode makes the best of any movie. Designed in collaboration with filmmakers and Hollywood studios, Filmmaker Mode lets you experience the cinematic vision, exactly as the director intended. Overriding the TV’s own motion and picture processing, Filmmaker Mode presents the correct aspect ratio, colour and frame rate – just as the filmmakers intended. Panasonic exclusively add Intelligent Sensing to Filmmaker mode, so that the picture reacts intelligently to changes in light, automatically giving you the most cinematic picture possible, whether the room is bright or dark.

Get the best out of Netflix, with Netflix Calibrated Mode
If you’re a movie fan and use Netflix, you’ll love Netflix Calibrated Mode. This setting bypasses many of the TVs processors, giving you a picture that’s much closer to how the filmmaker’s originally intended.

Dolby Atmos and Cinema Surround Pro for enveloping sound
Compatible with Dolby Atmos sound, this Panasonic TV creates a more immersive, enveloping sound. For even more immersion, select the Cinema Surround Pro setting, or use the HDMI eARC or optical digital output to add a soundbar or base.

HomeScreen 5.0 for easy navigation and voice control support
The latest version of Panasonic’s HomeScreen makes all the smart functions easy to access. When selecting content from your favourite streaming apps, the system now offers thumbnail images, making it much easier to find your favourite programme. Alternatively, support for Google Assistant and Alexa means you can find content via voice command.

Search, stream and play
When it comes to Smart TV flexibility, the TX55HZ980B has all the features you need. As well as the popular streaming apps, the TV also offers a full web browser. DLNA certified streaming makes it easy to transfer music and video files from your home computer, laptop or NAS drive to the TV. Also standard is Swipe and Share functionality. Swipe and share lets you use the Panasonic Remote TV app for smartphone media sharing. By using the app on your smartphone or tablet, you can easily stream pictures, 4K videos and music straight to the TV - no cables required.

Make the move to OLED and see the improvement for yourself, with the Panasonic TX55HZ980B.

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.
