Panasonic DP-UB820K 4K HDR Blu-ray Player
Panasonic’s UB820 4K BD player can decode wider color gamut up to BT.2020 color. This high-end 4K BD player also decodes Hi-Res Audio files, e.g. DSD/ALAC/FLAC/WAV, HDMI Low Clock Jitter Process, Digital Tube Sound w/up-sampling
The player’s output dynamic range can be manually adjusted (dynamic conversion adjustment) according to the brightness capacity of your TV. Optimum HDR Processing With more and more HDR content available on disc and via streaming services, the optimal reproduction of HDR content has become essential.
In addition to having a wide range of contrast, images from Ultra HD Blu-ray players must be reproduced with fine detail in both dark and bright areas. To achieve this, the new players use Panasonic’s three unique HDR processing technologies.
HDR-compatible TVs use tone-mapping to match the brightness range of images according to the static metadata within the content, but optimal results are sometimes not possible due to the limitations of the specific TV model. By conducting the tone-mapping on the player, stable HDR picture quality is delivered regardless of the TV. Panasonic’s original image processing technologies achieve HDR images with higher definition while tone-mapping is used to adjust the brightness level of the content. Even HDR images from ordinary HDR10 and TV footage provide optimal playback.HDR Adjustment for various viewing conditions
The UB820 features a new HDR adjustment control, which reproduces dark and bright areas with high fidelity regardless of the viewing environment. Dark scenes in HDR images are sometimes difficult to see when viewed in a bright room and may require brightness adjustment. Because HDR signals are inherently different from SDR signals, existing adjustment functions are insufficient.
The UB820 series use an original technology to optimize HDR video signals, which enables them to freely adjust the brightness of the HDR images. An HDR Setting button on the remote control allows the user to simply select the optimal setting for the viewing environment. HDR to SDR conversion (Optimized Tone Remapping for SDR-TV)
Dynamic Range Conversion reproduces images with greater brightness and beauty than ordinary Blu-ray Disc images when played on a non-HDR TV with standard dynamic range (SDR-TV). This feature maximizes the image expression that is inherent to Ultra HD Blu-ray. This must-have professional high performance 4K Blu-ray player was developed for all a/v enthusiasts and can be integrated as a stand-alone unit or rack-mountable.
Intuitive Voice Control:
Panasonic’s New Ultra HD Player supports voice control with Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant. A variety of operations, such as, select the streaming service, like Netflix, control the Blu-ray player functions, e.g. fast forward and pause, can be carried out by voice without having to use the remote control.
