”An excellent combination of gorgeous pictures and potent sound.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2022 award-winner.

HCX Pro AI processor gives you the finest picture – at all times of day

The latest version of Panasonic’s most powerful picture processor is better than ever, with this Panasonic 55 inch TV. Using a sensor, it now detects the ambient lighting condition and adjusts the picture to suit. Each colour tone is adjusted individually, ensuring that sensitive colours, such as flesh tones, remain natural while whites that appear unnatural in the ambient light are subtly enhanced.

The ideal picture setting for the content, with Auto AI
Panasonic’s smart Auto AI processor also 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.

Tuned by a “da Vinci of the movies”
Stefan Sonnenfeld is a leading Hollywood movie colourist. Described by NPR as a “da Vinci of the movies”, his credits include; A Star is Born, Wonder Woman, Man of Steel, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Jurassic World, 300 and many more. Not only does he use Panasonic OLED screens for his work, he has helped tune the colour of this LZ980 model – giving you Hollywood colour at home.

Better than ever for gaming with Game Control Board
Panasonic’s new Game Control Board focusing all the relevant gaming settings in one place. These are overlaid over the image, so you don’t have to leave the game to adjust. Overlays include source information, Dark Visibility Enhancer, HDR Tonemap, Input Lag and VRR and Viewing Mode.

SPD Auto Game Mode for lightning response
With SPD Auto Game Mode, the LZ980B automatically detects HDMI2.1 4K HFR/VRR-supporting NVIDIA GPUs and optimises the input lag and VRR to the best settings. This gives you lightning response, without having to trawl through multiple settings.

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.

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-type 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 ‘washing out’ 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 55 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.

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, it presents the correct aspect ratio, colour and frame rate – just as the filmmakers intended. Panasonic add Intelligent Sensing to Filmmaker mode, so that the picture reacts intelligently to changes in light, automatically giving you the most cinematic picture possible.

HomeScreen 7.0 for smart TV
The latest version of Panasonic’s HomeScreen improves accessibility and the myScenery function. The new accessibility menu automatically triggers voice guidance and lets you easily configure settings such as audio description and audio dialogue enhancement. HomeScreen 7.0 supports all major streaming services and uses thumbnail images, making it easier to find your favourite programme. Support for Google Assistant and Alexa means you can also find content via voice command. The improved myScenery feature offers a wider selection of still imagery, as well as nature sounds from the Joy Foundation Inc.

More smart features
As well as all the popular streaming apps, the HomeScreen 7.0 also gives you access to 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional TV sound & picture quality [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am so impressed and delighted with the quality of the viewing offered by this 48" TV from Panasonic, with its stunning 4K OLED screen, 3D surround sound, plus all the built-in features that it offers. Handily, all the main streaming Apps have a home button on the remote control, so you can load Netflix, Amazon Prime etc at the press of a single button. Freeview is also built-in, for a great value viewing option. The screen itself offers the option of changing the viewing resolution to best suit what you are watching, such as a Sport option, or Cinema for a realistic movie viewing experience. It also offers automatic functions that will adjust the picture for you, for fuss-free optimum viewing all the time. The various sound options enhance the incredible picture quality, meaning immersive, 3D sounds that help bring everything to life. The TV can be voice activated, with both Google Assistant and Alexa, so losing the remote control is no longer a problem! Setting it up was relatively quick and easy, with the option of either a stand or mounting on the wall. This TV is so innovative that it has made home viewing an even greater pleasure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent picture quality [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Took us about 20 minutes to set it up, including connecting to the WIFI, so wasn’t too bad. The surround is thin and legs very supportive. No cables needed except for power, leaves the room uncluttered. It is so well built. Fantastic quality. Superb picture and sound, Fabulous contrast and punchy colours and adjustable in many ways. Black is REALLY black, sharpness is great and adjustment of picture parameters is simple. You really haven’t watched TV until you have seen it on one of these screens! I received the large box and I was excited to have a look at the TV but I wasn’t prepared for how thin the screen in it is sub 1cm thick at the top and it only gets a few inches wide where the connectors are. The screen has really strong colours and the colours adapt to the light in the room depending on the mode that you set it too. The sound quality on the tv is awesome, there are different pre-set sound modes depending on your personal taste or there is a custom mode so that you can adjust it to your hearts content. The operating system is very quick and the picture quality with a bit of tweaking is amazing ! The cognitive processor is fantastic at turning ordinary scenes to high quality images with rich colour depth, you can read up on the technicalities of this processor but all you really need to do is pop on some HDR content and you will be impressed with the results. More importantly, Having the google TV functions means logging into all my subscribed services is really easy to do. The Google TV operating ststem works Smoothly, i am using Google Movies Now TV, Netflix , Prime Video, YouTube and Disney + they are all giving great results. I’m actually Still learning about the features. The control takes a bit of practice but It’s fairly Easy to navigate for someone like me who struggles with tech’. What’s more, I found the HDMI control is extremely effective and reliable, I love the fact that being able to stream my computer to my TV to play games without another device have to be used in between. Overall , I’m so Happy with its looks, performance, quality, pictures and sound. Everything is perfect but will take me some time to work everything out . Other than that this is without doubt a superb, smooth punchy just amazing visual feast, 100% recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Out of this world picture quality [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This Panasonic 4K 65" OLED TV is my first OLED and it has blown me away. The picture quality is so detailed and crisp and the colours are so vibrant that it will show every tiny little spec/blemish on the person you are watching. Watching football on this big screen in sport viewing mode synced with the stadium surround has to be seen to be fully appreciated. Sounds wise it is great with us not needing to put it over level 30 out of 99/100. I was going to invest in a sound bar but feel like i really don't need to. I'm a gamer and get a smoother experience with shooting games as it supports 120Hz (120 FPS). Visually the games are stunning to play on this. ALLM (Auto low latency mode) and VRR (Variable refresh rate) need turning on in the picture menu whilst on "game" viewing mode just as a heads up. It's got pretty much every major streaming/catch-up app and they load up super fast. Netflix loads pretty much instantly & others within 3 to 5 second and can switch between them seamlessly. The remote control is nice and lightweight and slim with the buttons well placed (not to close together). The built in Freeview is smooth and works as it should plus it loads the channels and TV guide up quick. BUT if you are going to add an external hard drive like I have to pause, rewind and record TV then there are a few things they need to iron out like a message that pops up every time you press the TV guide and have to click yes to continue and if you are playing a game and a programme you set to record is about to start recording then you'll get another message pop up over your game screen untill you clear it with the remote. Hopefully with a future firmware update this will go, but I think I will put back my set top box to do all my Freeview stuff. So here is my Pros and Cons Pros- Amazing 4K picture quality 120Hz refresh rate ALLM & VRR for gaming Split screen feature Dolby Atmos sound Quick at switching between apps Slim & lightweight remote control Majority of the major streaming apps Cons- If you are not using your own set top box and will be adding an external hard drive to use the built in Freeview pause, rewind & record function then be prepared to get annoyed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from smooth stunning tv [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] great tv with fantastic features amazing picture and sound had previously had a 4k tv but compared to that one this is on another level colours appear to be popping out of the screen everything about this tv is perfect if I was to have any worry it would be that the tv is razor thin so I do have to watch the kids around it other than that perfect
