”Panasonic’s 4K player delivers on many levels.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2019 Product of the Year.

HCX - Hollywood Cinema Experience

At the heart of this player is Panasonic’s unique HCX (Hollywood Cinema Experience) processor. Years of picture expertise and collaboration with Hollywood studios go into making this processor something very special. For vibrant colour and ‘being there’ realism, little can get close to this processor’s power.

4K High-Precision Chroma Processor for stunning colour
Also developed from technology derived from Panasonic's Hollywood Laboratory, the DP-UB820's 4K High-Precision Chroma Processor gets closer to the natural image than ever. 4K image colour signals (4:2:0) are interpolated into 4K (4:4:4) by a multi-tap chroma process. The result is stunning depth, texture and the greatest realism you're ever likely to see on the small screen.

Multi HDR Support – including HDR10+
Taking HDR technology to new highs, HDR10+ offers scene-by-scene HDR mastering for the truest, most accurate HDR picture technology to date. With HDR10+ each scene is optimised, meaning the maximum amount of detail is shown – even in the brightest or darkest moments. This Panasonic UHD Blu-ray also supports standard HDR10 and HLG formats. HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma HDR) is a broadcast and user generated standard format that is set to become the standard for transmitting 4K signals.

Dolby Vision for dramatic imaging
As well as supporting HDR10+, the DPUB820 is also compatible (via software update) with Dolby Vision. This Panasonic decodes signals that have specifically been encoded in Dolby Vision - a leading format in Hollywood and cinemas. Dolby Vision also adjusts the picture to take full advantage of each display's characteristics and presents an optimized picture for each scene in specially mastered content.

HDR Optimiser
Going further than HDR, this Panasonic UHD Blu-ray player uses image processing with tone mapping to enhance brightness levels. The system even works with standard HDR10 and TV images that don’t support HDR10+ or Dolby Vision.

Voice Assistant – Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa compatible
Voice Assistant means you simply have to speak into the controller to bring up content and search results. Now featuring Google Home and Amazon Alexa (via firmware update), Voice Assistant is more powerful than ever. Google Home integrates with services such as Google Photos and Google Maps to make your UHD Blu-ray an even greater source of entertainment.

Hi-Res audio for a boost to your music
As well as being a cinematic star with your movies, the DP-UB820 also works wonders with your music. Simply connect to your audio system and you’ll be able to enjoy Hi-Res music via streaming or USB. Compatible with a wide range of formats, including AIFF (up to 32 bit/384kHz 2 channel), WAV (up to 32 bit/384kHz), FLAC (up to 24 bit/192kHz) and DSD (up to 11.2MHz in 2 channel), the Panasonic DP-UB820 is a supremely flexible music player.

Fully connected, including twin HDMI outputs
With twin HDMI sockets you get excellent connectivity. The second HDMI lets you run an audio source in another room. Another bonus with this Panasonic is the analogue 7.1 RCA output. This lets you connect to older but high-end AV receivers that may not have an HDMI interface. Other great connections include twin USB sockets (front and rear) – ideal for connecting your USB stocks and watching digital content.

4K streaming
Although UHD Blu-ray disc has the performance advantage, 4K streaming gives you a huge range of extra content, including award-winning TV drama. Compatible with the top streaming services from the likes of Netflix and Amazon (coming soon via software update), you’ll never be short of entertainment – and all in top quality 4K.

Smart services including apps and web browser
As a smart player, the Panasonic DP-UB820 is equipped with a full web browser and apps. Access your favourite catch-up TV services via their app or simply use the web browser to find specific websites.

Streaming and Miracast mirroring
DLNA compatibility ensures you can link up with other sources on your network, for smooth streaming of content from PCs, laptops, NAS drives and other networked devices. Miracast allows you to stream whatever video is playing on your smartphone, tablet or PC to the TV, via the UHD Blu-ray player, wirelessly (Miracast requires a Wi-Fi network and Miracast certified smartphone. Smartphone firmware update may be required). For easy connection, Wi-Fi is also standard.

Maximise the full potential of your TV, with the Panasonic DPUB820 – movies have never looked so good at home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awsome product! I love my new player, it has all that one would want plus those extras that make ones life easier. The picture quality is unquestionable as is the surround sound output with plenty of clarity and power. For me it has the essential ports to plug in the separate hard drive that I use in my work. I did do my research before purchasing; however, I decided to continue to shop at Richer Sounds because the staff are extremely knowledgeable and patient. The product was delivered well within in the time-frame arranged.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hard to Beat Both the picture and spound quality are second to none, whether using 4K, standard Blu-Ray or DVD,s though obviously the latter suffer by comparison.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning Player I purchased my Panasonic DPUB820 as a replacement for my Sony UBP-X800. It is a well worth upgrade with stunning picture and sound quality. A very easy setup and i highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the wait I placed my order in July and RS were waiting for stock as production was slow due to Covid-19. I was happy to wait for mine based on researching the web for reviews. My unit was delivered at the beginning of September and I must say it is worth waiting for. It connected to my LG smart tv with no problem and was easy to set up, so I am now working my way through my UHD Blu-Ray collection and enjoying my “cinema” experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant picture and sound I bought this 4K UHD blu ray player as this product has the connection to my tv and also has smart feature like BBC iPlayer, Netflix ect. Also great for playing all films and tv box set, cds even looking at pictures from a usb pen drive to sum up this devic is a all in one entertainment system and cannot go wrong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great to use, simple features I bought it for my fathers new Samsung QLED TV and boy... what a combo. The colours are insane. Hunter at Cambridge Richer Sounds was spot on with his knowledgeable recommendations.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor picture quality. Sound good After a significant delay in delivery, I was hoping for impressive performance from the Panasonic. However I was disappointed with the picture quality. I even compared the picture with the exact same movie on my old Blu Ray and switched between both units on the OLED high res TV - (ie one with a Blu Ray movie, the other 4K). Given the delays in arrival of the first unit, I wasn’t prepared to accept another replacement. Overall a very poor experience.
