Panasonic’s DX Series 4K Ultra HD Premium 2016 TV Lineup

Panasonic DX Series

Panasonic recently unveiled its new 4K Pro DX Series LED TVs. Leading this lineup is the flagship DX902. This high-end display is slated to produce stunning picture images due in part to its new honeycomb-structure local dimming technology which will allow the DX902 to deliver both bright highlights and deep blacks.

This honeycomb design divides the screen into hundreds of zones of individually controlled light clusters. These zones are isolated from each other to remove light leakage issues that can lead to a “light halo” effect around bright objects.

Panasonic claims the DX902’s ultra-transmissive LCD cells can deliver up to 1,000 nits of peak brightness across a wider portion of the screen than conventional HDR LCD TVs.

The DX902 also features a new super accurate Studio Master HCX+ chipset and a new LCD panel which will assist in the delivery of an outstanding 4K UHD picture image.

Additional models in the DX Series include the DX802, DX750 and DX700. These models, including the DX902, will be Ultra HD Premium certified by the UHD Alliance, meaning these TVs all meet specification standards for resolution, high dynamic range (HDR), peak luminance, black levels and wide color gamut among other specs.

Other highlights of the DX Series feature high dynamic range (HDR) capability for enhanced picture brightness and contrast.

Furthermore, the smart TV platform in the DX line is powered by an improved Firefox OS interface for quick access to your favorite TV channels, apps, videos, websites and content through the TV’s home screen.
