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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vast improvement over our previous Panasonic The picture quality is stunning, the colours and resolution outstanding.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from All round great performance Have had the TV for couple of weeks replacing a much loved 20 year old 50" Panasonic Plasma. The 55" OLED cabinet is the same size but with a bigger screen, much lighter and uses about one tenth of the electric. For me SD picture quality is very important as that's what I mainly watch via Freeview. There are plenty of USB, HDMI connections with optical audio out too. Would have been a 5 star but Panasonic do not sell mounting bolts for VESA brackets. It needs 2 different pairs of bolts and unlike my Plasma TV they are different sizes. A little thing I know but it lessened the joy of set-up on the day and delayed the fun of watching my favourite show. The sound quality is really good from such a small "box" at the back of the tv 5mm thick screen. There are so many more Apps to choose from to explore. An excellent bit of kit that I look forward to using for the next 20 years!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning natural colours I'm really happy with the purchase following advice from knowledgeable staff. Went the extra upgrade to het OLED and pleased we did considering the enormous difference this has made. The only drawback is the size of the base plate of the stand (bigger than anticipated).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good everything We have just replaced our elderly Panasonic with this up to date model. What a difference. Great picture and easy to install.
