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.

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.
