      Phil, on the video at 0:31 you show the screen going transparent.
      I have also seen other video's posted on the web, with the Panasonic display going transparent.
      Can you please shed a little more light on this technology from panasonic, and does the new 2017 Oled have this feature.
      If not, is it intended for 2018.

      The transparent OLED was a prototype that Panasonic are showing, it certainly won't apply to the 2017 models. We'll be shooting a video about the transparent OLED today.

      Thanks for the info Steve.
      I think this transparent display technology is fantastic, as long as it doesn't affect the picture quality in any way.
      Its good to have a very large tv, but it can look very ugly in some rooms. I will be very interested to watch your video, who knows the wife might say ok to a transparent very large tv.

      It's still a long way from prime time, the image isn't that great and you can still see through the panel, depending on how bright behind the screen is. I think where this technology is going to very cool is in information displays on windows or fridge fronts etc.

      I wish companies such as Panasonic would think a bit more when naming their products. Not everyone has 'Rainman' capabilities when it comes to memorising dumb product names such as EZ952, EZ1002 etc. Why cant they use simpler terminology with a reference the year they were launched?

      The blacks and the picture quality looked good on that Oled. I will not be upgrading this year from my Oled LG 65e6v. And I doubt if me personally would trust another Panasonic Oled after the disappointing HDR performance on the first Panasonic. I know that all of the them struggled with HDR in the first models but the Panasonic Oled actually made the picture worse. I think this years models will be very good though right across the Oled range.

      I know what your saying about the HDR on the Panasonic OLED.

      But for me (when i owned the Panasonic OLED) the CZ952 really showed what Panasonic could bring to the table in 2015 with there OLED.

      Using the LG panel and Panasonics well engineered internal electronics really showed what Panasonic are capable of achieving.

      The CZ952 really stuck 2 fingers up at the OLED range LG were producing at the same time !!
      When i owned the CZ952 the picture quality on SD material was very good and feeding the CZ with HD or UHD really made it shine.

      Now i own a 65"LG E6 and its fantastic, to me far better than the CZ but that my opinion.
      Hopefully with the return of Panasonic using there engineering for internals and the 2016 LG screen I'm praying they can again show what there capable of.

      Is it a LG display technology or have Panasonic developed their own?
      I can see a market for it in HUDs, especially if its a couple of mm thin like the LG W7 it could be applied to a window (or windscreen) - think the high street stores that have interactive window displays that still have the goods on show behind them, or possibly enhanced-reality VR spectacles.

      This years LG models should've had a reference badge based on what I've seen with mine, just like the Panasonic first generation Oled got. It looks amazing with the Oppo 203 4k Blu-ray player.

      Didn't quite make the grade though, presumably for good reason?

      Something to do with the blacks not being up to snuff. They are better than the Panasonic first generation Oled though and they got 10 out of 10. I can't say I have ever seen anything to complain about though, I would describe mine as perfect.

      I think it is simply a case of LG's picture processing/colour accuracy not being up to the levels of Panasonic - this year it will no doubt be a toss-up between the new Sony and the new Panasonic OLED. The question is are you prepared pay the premium price over the none-too-shabby LG's??

      Would love to see a shootout with the 3 of them side-by-side and it would be great to see AV Forums arranging it this year.

      Not sure when the last time that Sony had a reference TV but they certainly look like they have the strongest line-up of 2017 to me ...

      That was my guess too. 2017 has to be the year for a new Reference badged Oled surely?

      I'm busy saving up in anticipation (for a 77 incher [not] :) )

      Roll on June...

      Still cant get over the no 3D option on any new screens this year, i know of me and two friends that will not be buying any screen because of it this year, lets hope they bring 3D back next year.
