      Now, this is what I was waiting for :smashin: - a Panasonic TV with HDR10+ and DV!

      Let's see pricing at the European convention in February, then I'll get an idea of how long I'll have to wait until I can afford to buy one (probably Autumn - Black Friday next year).

      Looking forward to your reviews guys...:)

      Now this will provide a bit of competition for LG and Sony!
      I’m glad they listened and finally offer DV.
      I’m hoping they also announce a slightly cheaper version (basic speakers) as this does sound expensive but if it betters the current flagship (as it will) we are in for a treat.
      Cant wait to find out more info, are they still only selling within Europe ?

      Panasonic sells in Canada as well... I have a Panasonic FZ950 OLED myself. I’m kicking myself now because maybe I could have waited until this model to come out

      Just hope they've upped their game on the scaling front...

      Small thing... - but BBC local channels (e.g. Local News, Inside Out) are still broadcast in SD, and the Sony AF9 stood out for me last year as presenting the best SD picture. Looks like the AG9 this year can't offer multiple HDR formats like the Panny.

      I am sure I read somewhere that Panasonic said they had no plans in the future to introduce DV for their Old TV's :rolleyes::thumbsdow

      This kind of thing makes me laugh when it comes to the rubbish companies spout. It wasn't that long ago that Panasonic where saying there happy with HDR 10+ only and don't need nor want Dolby vision because they want there own processor to do all the work for HDR and not give that control to Dolby. Its funny how quickly things change and shows how much rubbish these companies come out with lol.

      Just need webOS installed on it and it could be perfect. I still enjoy 3D content on my E6, I realise this is not a feature coming back but would be great to see it again one day. There’s probably not enough reasons on these new TV’s for me to upgrade from the E6. I love it.

      They did say on this forum 2 years ago they would/could not support DV but would listen to the market.
      I assumed this was tied into the chip (unless they did a Sony DV soft version), and if it’s a 2 year cycle...
      Again last year they said they would listen to the market (and then introduced DV with their players) so if it wasn’t this year it was bound to be next with DV availability.
      The lack of DV will have affected sales (I went to LG), but this will certainly help them.
      I can understand some owners being annoyed but from what I’ve read, there wasn’t too much in it comparing the two (Pannys HDR v others DV).
      I was annoyed when LG introduced a brighter game mode in the ‘18 range but that’s the way it goes, next year will always be better.

      Finally offering DV, who cares about HDR10P+, as there is nothing there with that format. Sounds like it will be very expensive with all the sound gizmos and pro grade screen, wish they have a model without the fancy sound effects. No news of 4 fat HDMI or even 2.1 version, which I don't it has. Probably on LG has 2.1 HDMI, as others would have made a shout about.

      Yeah, I was assuming all manufacturers would have 2.1 this year, if it is only LG it’s a bit of a ball drop all round

      Its more a case of will the 802/952 be updated with DV as they have the same processing chip as their DV blu players.

      I do applaud Panasonic for adding both HDR10+ and DV though. The whole HDR wars is just silly and no real reason to not have all formats on a TV. Hopefully Samsung get there finger out because as mentioned at the moment HDR10+ is a waste of space.

      We don't know yet if Dolby Vision support is exclusive to this flagship model or if the whole 2019 line-up will benefit from it!

      Has Panasonic's choice to add DV and HDR10+ killed off HDR10+ before it has got off the ground?

      FOX and Mill Creek are the 2 studios backing HDR10+ (for now).

      I am not sure why HDR10+ could not be added to existing TVs as I believe it is open source and loyalty free.

      Weirdly FOX UHD discs with HDR10+ were theatrically shown in Dolby Vision (Bad times, Bohemian rhapsody to name a few).

      I think Panasonic have made the right decision on adding Dolby Vision, I think in the long run it’ll end up being pretty widely adopted vs competitors.
      Really excited to see this screen put through its paces, I have an LG C8 65” on order which I managed to get for £1969, after seeing this Panasonic, thinking about cancelling and waiting but nothow much more it cost, £4K?
      The LG C8 is a bargain.

      I don’t think anyone will fall of their chairs at the news that Panasonic TVs will support DV this year. The much lauded HDR10+ seems to be dead in the water already. This sort of thing happens all the time though and I’m sure there’ll be something omitted from the 2019 range that will annoy people.:D

      Can the 2018 TVs be updated to include DV? I know it won’t happen but is it technically possible?

      Check Phils interview posted above with PM Craig.
      They can’t be upgraded due to the chip used in the ‘17/18 models.

      I would like one of these now love to see how DV looks on a panny oled.. but have only had my ez952 for 8 months... I know could have waited but if take that view you'll always be waiting for the next best thing and never buy.. like the look of the design too very much like pro model plasma frame..
