Panasonic EZ1000 is World’s 1st 4K OLED TV with Pro-Grade Accuracy ( article )

Panasonic has unveiled the world’s first 4K HDR OLED TV with professional-grade video processing at the CES 2017 consumer electronics trade show in Las Vegas this week. The Viera EZ1000 (or EZ1002 in the UK) will be the company’s second OLED television after its inaugural CZ950/ CZ952 which was released in late 2015.



Unlike its curved predecessor, the Panasonic TX-65EZ1000 will use a flat WRGB OLED panel supplied by LG Display, though both displays will share the one singular screen size of 65 inches. Taking a leaf out of Sony’s ZD9 launch playbook, Panasonic refused to disclose the exact peak luminance and colour gamut coverage on the EZ1000, merely stating that it will deliver “around double the peak brightness of a conventional OLED” and “almost the full DCI colour space”. If we were a betting person (hey we’re in Vegas after all), we’d put money on a peak brightness between 800 and 1000 nits, and 98-99% DCI-P3 coverage.
Update: According to a presentation slide at the launch event, the EZ1000′s peak brightness will be around 800 nits (likely the peak luminance of all OLEDs using LG Display’s 2017 WRGB OLED panel), with almost 100% DCI-P3 coverage.



The new “Master HDR OLED” panel will be joined by an “Absolute Black Filter” that not only soaks up ambient light and reflections to reduce glare, but also eradicates the reddish blacks which can affect some OLED TVs in bright rooms. We’ve been very impressed with the anti-reflective filter on the now-defunct Panasonic ZT plasma, and so can’t wait to see how the version implemented on the TX65EZ1000 will perform.
Another aspect which has consistently blown us away on Panasonic Vieras in recent years is their excellent colour accuracy, and the Japanese manufacturer is looking to step things up a notch on the EZ1000 via several avenues. First is a Studio Colour HCX2 video processor – the most powerful from Panasonic on a consumer television yet – which provides unrivalled “Delta Zero” accuracy through 3D LUT (look-up tables) similar to those used by Panasonic’s professional filmmaking and broadcast monitor arm.
Furthermore, professional users can even upload their own 3D LUTs by SD card/ USB stick. And when you consider Panasonic’s continued finetuning collaboration with Hollywood colourist Mike Sowa, the company’s own Hollywood Lab experience, and integrated DDC (direct display controls) for ISF calibration, it’s unlikely we’ll see another OLED TV that can present the director’s creative intent with more accuracy. THX and Ultra HD Premium certifications are being applied for.
OLED’s self-emissive display characteristics lend itself to true blacks, but LG OLEDs to date have had a tendency to either render the shades just above black with more noise and blockiness, or crush shadow detail however slight. Panasonic aims to tackle this through its HCX2 processor, drawing upon its know-how and experience with plasma to compensate for the relatively large “jump” between OLED’s off (zero black) and on (above black) states for the clearest and cleanest reproduction of detail in dark scenes.
The Panasonic EZ1002/ EZ1000 will support HDR10 PQ (perceptual quantisation) standard for Ultra HD Blu-ray playback, HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) for HDR broadcast, 4K HDR streaming from Netflix, Amazon and YouTube, but not Dolby Vision format since the company believes it knows its own panel and processing better than any other organisation. Like all other OLED TVs to be released in 2017, the TX-65EZ1002/ TX-65EZ1000 won’t have 3D capability.
To complement the class-leading picture quality, Panasonic has roped in sound engineers from acclaimed audio brand Technics to help develop a new Dynamic Blade Speaker for the EZ1000. Taking the form of a soundbar stand spanning the entire width of the screen (again), the Dynamic Blade Speaker is a deceptively slim audio system that houses 14 speaker units including 8 woofers, 4 squawkers and 2 tweeters, plus a quad passive radiator to enhance bass.



Other features include a “floating” design, dark metallic finish, a newly developed My Home Screen 2.0 Smart TV system, a revamped Media Player app supporting 4K HDR10 and HLG content, Freeview Play for the British TX-65EZ1002B model, as well as IP>TV tech (to convert broadcasts into data streamable to other devices) on continental models. Control4 and Crestron certifications are pending.


The 65in Panasonic EZ1000 will be available in Europe from end of May 2017, although there’s currently no plan to release the 4K OLED TV in North America. The company hasn’t decided on a launch price yet.

Apparently, Panasonic Canada will be releasing the OLEDs in that market, so it's not true that they won't be appearing in this part of the world.

Lots of OLED TVs models to chose from this year at the UK Shootout. Panasonic, Sony, LG, Philips, Loewe and Metz OLED TVs are for sale in Europe.

Where did you get that news? This is a big deal for me since im in Canada and my hunch tells me the panasonic will be the best of the oleds although i'll wait for reviews.

Really? Who knew? It's great that some have the ability to make unequivocal assessments of products they've never even seen.

I don't know if this is already common knowledge, but I saw the 65in EZ1000 today in person and the rep from Panasonic said it would be available in the US in June this year with an initial retail price of US$8000.

He also said some lower tier models (I assume he meant below prosumer level) would be available with a smaller price tag, although in the 55in class only. He said that all 65in and 77in displays would be "top tier" (i.e., expensive).

I honestly can't imagine getting a better and more realistic picture than my 2014 55" 1080p LG EC9300 OLED. HDR has a "cool" factor but to be totally honest gives the picture a "super-real" look. It just doesn't look like "real life". I also don't give a damn about 4K.

Yeah, not quite sure what they're referring to there? The reddish reflections on the panel from ambient light?

I could see the same red reflections from the camera flashes at the start of the video.

Upon further analysis, it could have been the red eye reduction, because not all of the flashes cause the red reflections.

This is the first I've heard of anyone reporting a possible US release. Robert Zohn over at Value Electronics recently said that he doesn't think a US release is likely - but who knows.

This would be good news if true, but I kind of doubt it. The US needs more competition outside of the cheap Chinese companies.

As a regular joe, how come LG doesn't get pro-grade accuracy with the same panel? Is LG handing off their best panels to Panasonic and Sony?

I'm completely guessing here, but I highly doubt LG is just handing off their best panels.
IMO, Panasonic has some of the best color accuracy out there, and I think that's attributed to their programming and processing. Combine that with a great panel, and you have a real winner on your hands.

I'm really looking forward to seeing this unit, and the Sony A1 in a showroom near me

This thread is possibly a bit dated, but I wanted to reply to these comments.

I saw the Panasonic rep at work here in Glendale, CA. I'm not really supposed to say where I work publicly, but it's a major entertainment company. They had a "Best of CES" day here and that's how I got a chance to see these things and talk to the reps. This is what they told me.

I also asked Sony (for the A1E) when theirs would be available. They just said "sometime this year".

As a random sidebit of info, Panasonic also said the input lag is "3 frames". I should have prodded more because this is a bit vague, given that he also told me the display could do 120fps.

Prices were announced for Australia...

And if you do the correct currency exchange rate - the 65" EZ1000 would be $6.600 US.

So... pretty much in line with the others

The Panny 65" EZ1000 to be priced $1K above the Sony A1E isn't too surprising if one looks at history.

Panny holds its own processing tech in extremely high regard (as does Sony with its own). Motion, color replication accuracy, saturation, upscaling - these areas have always been tight between the two giants. We're talking about the battle between the X1E vs. HCX2 processors.

For example, in the LCD space over the last few years, Panny's flagship models have been priced above Sony's. Of course, with Panny's absence in the American market, we hardly see any side-by-sides between them.

It should be noted that Panny's 2015/16 OLED model beat LG's 2016 OLED in European testings and shootout, hence the desire of enthusiasts to see an OLED showdown between Sony and Panasonic.

4K will give you a better picture. And I'm guessing "super-real" means surreal, but who knows. Also, not really sure why you "don't give a damn about 4K" when it gives you a better image, as does HDR. But, at this point, most people are used to the excuses that EC9300 owners made to justify their TV.

When Sony originally announced its price for the A1E - it was $6,499 - so.. who knows what price the EZ1000 will finally end up at.

Maybe a bad choice of words. Maybe "surreal" is better. Or maybe "unrealistic"?

The perception of higher resolution all depends on screen size and viewing distance. Or a better way to put it is pixel density at a given distance. If you are sitting 6 feet from a 70" screen then sure, 4K would be noticeably better than 1080p. However, I don't, nor would I ever want to, sit that close to a TV that size. The most enjoyable viewing experience for me is having the screen fill the center of my field of vision but stay out of my peripheral vision(as far as I'm concerned an image in my peripheral vision is wasted screen space) My viewing distance is about 9-10 feet depending on where exactly I sit. To fill the center of my filed of vision at 9-10 feet the ideal screen size is about 55". At 9-10 feet from a 55" screen someone with 20/20 vision can see 30 pixels per inch (ppi). Someone with 20/15 vision (which I have) can see about 36 ppi. A 55" 1080p TV is already 40ppi which means it already exceeds the visual acuity of the human eye for 20/20 and 20/15 vision for the viewing distance and size. If I can't see 40ppi then I sure as hell won't be able to see the higher ppi of a 4K screen. That's why I don't give a damn about 4K.

New video standards are about more than just resolution increases and also include increased color gamut/volumes, which you can appreciate at any distance. The resolution increase comes along for the ride.

I don't care about 4k really as 720p is fine for me or 1080p. Since i am 11ft away from my 60VT60 in my bedroom 4k would make no diff.

1 thing for 100% sure is 4k looks ALOT better than 1080p
Anyone thinking opposite need their eyes checked
I did countless comparisons, 4k win every time
Now there is bad 4k contents, but its another story
Bottom line is 4k is definitely worth it!!!
Hdr may be worth more, but 4k is definitely up there, and it makes huge differences.. So dont be ignorant
There are reasons people are investing thousands on their tv and computers just for 4k movies and gaming, we are not stupid

I guess my post was invisible? The new video standards are about more than resolution.
