      Great interview Phil.

      Nice touch adding 10+ to ‘17 sets.
      Also nice to know while this sounds like a fantastic set, cheaper models will also be coming.

      I was looking at getting the current FZ802 but I think i'll hold off for this for the DV

      This looks like a peach of a set if they can just bring out a cheaper version without the speakers which I wouldn't use

      My thoughts exactly and i'm hoping they will. They did with the current 952 & 802 and the Technics speaker blade.

      I agree whole heartedly with Lrehcsa and Kevo. Many of us on these forums have decent to excellent surround systems including Atmos / DTS:X and maybe Auro setups so we don't need the speaker arrangement offered with this TV. I would think just decent quality stereo speakers is all it needs for most of us on these forums with the expected reduction in price. Maybe February time things will pan (asonic :rolleyes:) out, we will just have to wait and see. ;)

      There’s bound to be a cheaper model (standard speakers), Craig said he’s more excited about the future announcements so unless they have an 8K panel, I’m assuming it’s a cheaper model for “all” to enjoy.

      Fantastic news that Panasonic have finally embraced Dolby Vision!
      They hinted at the HDTV Test shootout that it was a 'possibility' for 2019.

      I'm glad I held off buying the FZ802 (I came very, very close).

      I'm sure they'll have models available without the unwanted speakers.

      Regards,
      James.

      Same here also. The looks to be a beast of an OLED from Panasonic. And I hope we can get all that the GZ has to offer without the speakers in a trimmed down model.:smashin:

      I needs the precious...:love::laugh:

      I'll also need a DV compatible UHD player at some stage!
      I've only had a 4K set up for three and a half years and i'm already upgrading!

      The Panny 820 can be had for £200 if you check the review thread.
      Get your old one on eBay, just did the same brought the 820 down to £80...

      Totally agree.

      The lack of DOLBYVISION and uncompetitive performance TV Speakers Audio was in my mind the Key disadvantages for 2018 Pan TV’s, but they have addressed it. I wish they had iTunes App like the new Samsung 2019 TV’s, otherwise brilliant.

      On a related noted, Panasonic have released news on their new LUMIX camera range.

      Panasonic S1/S1R to ship in March; HLG Photo and High-Res mode added to feature list

      As a keen photographer myself I'm interested in the 'HLG photo mode' which the new GZ2000 will be compatible with. This looks at last like a big step up from viewing vanilla 8bit sRGB jpegs which I have been moaning about for sometime.
      But that would mean another upgrade, this time of my LUMIXFZ2000 :rolleyes:
      I think I'll have to hold off on that one. One thing at a time!

      Yes - congrats to Panasonic supporting DV is a good step forward for me. Like others interested in the lower spec TV speaker model that will hopefully be announced in Feb - also as a non gamer nice to see they are pitching at PQ improvements as well

      Spiffing, cravatastic!

      Let's face it they didn't want to, but in the end, they had to fold and support Dolby Vision.

      If i was in your shoes and don’t mind waiting. I would seriously consider returning it and refund. Then buying a 2019 Pan in November Black Friday. If you have the patience and another tv.

      That makes no sense to me. If DV really was that important to him then surely he should have got a C8 or a B8 in the first place. Going to the hassle of returning the tv, then doing without an OLED for 9 months and for what benefit? The marginal improvement (if that) that DV gives over HDR10?

      Well Panasonic obviously think it is important enough to implement it and promote it.

      Try reading my post - I said if you have the patience. Obviously you don’t.

      I brought the 802 on the fact the 802 looked more natural to me over the lg Price came into it motion looked better no judder like i kept seeing on the lg I
      I knew i should of waited but couldn't see them doing it after what was said and advised from a well known company that it would be a update if needed. After watching a few films it still looks stunning compared to my 10 yr old pioneer and my previous pw6 plasmas I think hdr and hopefully some support of hdr 10+ will do for a fair few years..

      I almost bought the 802 recently but my local independent (Pan auth) advised me to wait until the CES for two reasons...a possible price reduction in the 802 and the new line up (which he didn't know anything about).
      So, I think i'll hold off for the GZ2000 but will probably buy at launch although I know it will be cheaper later this year, but i'm not getting any younger and '9 months' is too long to wait around and miss out on. I did the same with my current CX802 (2015 at launch) and have no regrets. There will always be something 'better next year'.

      Not really, it's just another tick box that must be had.

      DV make sense on paper and with some disc's its notable, but as TV have got better processing the hash clipping of highlights has been curbed and now HDR10/DV gap is minor.

      I think this has been done like you say as a tick box to sale more tvs. After looking at lg what the guy was showing me half of it would never be used.its starting to get worse than phones I have been happy with my pioneer for the last 10yrs and hoping the 802 last near the same

      Many would disagree that Dolby Vision is just a tick box exercise.

      While the benefits of Dolby Vision over HDR10 may be fairly small, those benefits can be seen, and many AVForum members have invested in the best equipment (Oppo UHD Players for example), and have bought UHD discs that feature Dolby Vision, and we would really like the opportunity to view Dolby Vision content on a Panasonic TV - and now that's going to be possible.

      Honestly, by being HDR agnostic, and supporting HDR10, HLG, HDR10+ and Dolby Vision, I think Panasonic will completely dominate the high-end OLED market this year, as this is exactly what enthusiasts have been asking for - support for all the HDR formats on one TV.

      It's great for the customer, and a very shrewd move by Panasonic. If it's successfully for them, then perhaps will see other manufacturers doing the same, and this stupid HDR format war will quietly go away? Let's hope so!

      James.
