High-end Edge-lit HDR
What is the Panasonic DX802?The DX802 is Panasonic's high-end edge-lit Ultra HD 4K LED LCD TV and comes in 50- and 58-inch screen sizes. The TX-58DX802B is the 58-inch model and like the screen size in the range it was developed in conjunction with interior designers Cassina to create what Panasonic call their Art & Interior design. The result is a TV that uses a striking silver freestyle design that is intended to present the screen as if it were a piece of art. At the bottom there is a 12-train prismatic soundbar and this high quality speaker unit incorporates two tweeters, four mid-range drivers and six woofers. The DX802 uses a 100Hz VA 8-bit panel and includes 2000Hz BMR and IFC 4K, as well as Studio Master HCX processing. There is THX 4K certification, along Control4's Simple Device Discovery Protocol (SDDP); as well as a super bright panel with a wider colour spectrum and support for HDR with a peak brightness of 500 nits. There's also Firefox, My Home Screen 2.0 and USB HDD recording with dual tuners, as well as HEVC and VP9 decoding, Freeview Play and 3D support.
