      Cheers for the follow up video, nice to see it from a few more angles.

      While a few of us gamers who are looking to futureproof for the next gen consoles will be slightly disappointed, it’s not surprising more 2.1 features haven’t been included (Panasonic do tend to cover what’s required now v LG/Samsung who tend to look a little further down the line). I suppose eArc really isn’t required for this specific model as you have the decent speakers built in, will they include it in their other models?
      In saying that, this tv really has me tempted never mind the assumed basic speaker model to come.

      Going by last year, PQ will be the best in market, dynamic formats now covered (even if you can’t see the difference between them :)), brighter APL, which I’m assuming will provide a bit more HDR pop and reduced gaming latency.
      For a few of us, the new calibration features also sound fantastic.

      Will be interesting to see what the new revision of their OS looks like and if there will be new support for the likes of Now Tv.
      Glad to hear about the AI support.
      Hope LG’s magic remote can start to be replicated by other manufacturers as the icing on the cake.

      Roll on February !

      @philhinton thank you so much for all the feedback from CES this year.

      Just as a side note and slightly of topic, but i feel its a relevant question regarding the GZ2000 & HDMI 2.1 and that is how far away are we from actual 120fps Broadcast TV?

      Good question. The only thing which puts me off built-in soundbars is the lack of standalone subwoofer.

      @Phil Hinton Thanks for all the tidy reports. Who knew flirting (with Craig) was in your wheelhouse - good to know you'll go the extra mile...

      Yeah, this is the disappointing aspect. Dolby Vision has established itself now where I would consider it standard.

      In terms of features for me, the Panasonic's benefit is that it has HDR10+ vs. the LG C9's VRR which most will expect to be significant for future use with next-gen consoles and today with Xbox One X.

      I don't know why I keep bringing it up tbh, I think it's just because every year I edge closer to going back to Panasonic, but then you find out they are missing some feature that is likely to prove significant for the next decade.

      Doesn't change the fact I'd prefer the Panasonic for picture quality - but I am set on the C9 now for compatibility sake with gaming, regardless in the meantime I'll keep an eye here just in case Panasonic can add VRR, much like Samsung did last year.

      As far as I've heard it is an LG 2018 Display. Panasonic are calling it their Custom Panel and all Panasonic's processing etc...

      I guess there is no real improvement to older panels since no sales talk how good these new panels are.

      ;)

      I remember reading somewhere the structure had changed again of the pixels but nothing concrete on the advantages. Maybe this is what helped Pana eek out the ABL improvements. Evolution not revolution I guess....

      Panasonic on press release states these are Custom OLED Panels, but no further explanation on it. I hope they choose the best panels for screen Uniformity rather than Consumers taking a risk.


      From Panasonic press release about the OLED Panel:
      [No ordinary OLED panel, the bespoke Professional Edition 4K OLED panel has been exclusively customised by Panasonic R&D engineers. This has resulted in even greater control of the parameters that affect picture quality. In particular, the average brightness level has been boosted significantly and contrast handling improved, resulting in increased dynamic range]

      Sounds expensive, my guess is that the cheaper step down screen they will eventually announce wont have the customised panel and will effectively by an FZ with DV added.

      Doesn’t make sense. LG sells one panel (and yes it could be a new 2019 panel. I will try to attach the link below).
      The only stuff they can do is:
      1. Control the panel electronic like Sony did for af9 in 2018 for the first time (locked by LG before I believe)

      2. Work on the cooling system...John archer mentioned a “hardware” cooling system inherited from plasma...
      I am assuming a “cooling” system should help lower the apl Treshold thus reducing burn in risk while boosting brightness. Just me guessing how it could work based on plasma...
