Panasonic OLED TVs to feature Netflix Calibrated Mode
Panasonic OLEDs get Netflix mode
Panasonic has announced that their 2019 line-up of OLED TVs will support Netflix Calibrated Mode - a configuration that ensures content on the streaming channel is displayed exactly as the creators intended by matching settings used on the monitors in the post-production process.Based on an established history of collaboration between the two companies, Panasonic's GZ2000, GZ1500, GZ1000 and GZ950 OLEDs models will be expected to give the most accurate streamed images on the Netflix platform. Colours, dynamic contrast and motion will all be presented as intended with a simple button click to activate the Calibrated Mode. This is only available using the built-in Netflix app on the TVs.
The entire catalogue of Netflix programming will be covered, not just specific titles, so TV series, documentaries and films will all benefit in having details enhanced. For example, the darker scenes in Stranger Things will be clearer, showing details as the programme-makers intended - what a shame the last season of Game of Thrones isn't being shown on Netflix!
Rob Caruso, Vice President of device partner engagements at Netflix, said, "Quality means everything to us, and we're thrilled to bring Netflix Calibrated Mode to Panasonic's OLED TVs so our members have the choice to experience amazing storytelling on Netflix in the most authentic way."
His views were echoed by Yasushi Murayama, head of Audio Visual products for Panasonic in Europe, “Panasonic’s theme for 2019 has been to deliver ‘more‘ Hollywood to ‘more’ homes. We have done this by bringing Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos all the way down to our core-range models. With this collaboration with Netflix we are doing it again: bringing studio quality picture mastering to more viewers.”
