Exactly. The main reason I came off the sidelines to buy one. It may have little effect most of the time, but it appears to be a great feature.

So with a display that maxes out at 1000 ish nits combined with a movie mastered to 1000 nits you won't see the difference from the player optimizer tone map vs. the native display tone map right?



But for projectors that come nowhere close to that 1000 nits and for discs mastered in say 4000 nits there should be a noticeable difference on everything HDR you throw at it correct?

Nice Zombie ! I cant imagine Panasonic wouldn't deliver on bringing us Dolby Vision to the 820 considering they have a DV badge slapped right on top of the box !

Don't think so. I am not sure you would see much on 650 nit oled's either with a 1000 nit discs, but those 4000 nit torture tests reviewers use should be where it really helps.

Optimizer should not be set to a number. Thats the HDR brightness sliders. Optimizer should be set to Basic, Medium/High, Super High, or OLED. Then you switch it on or off.


For screen shot posting you can go to post image dot org and upload the shot. Then paste the URL link in a message here and we should be able to see it.

No, the 820 is tone mapping to a smaller range, then passing along to your display which will do what it needs to do. It just helps resolve some high nit detail, which if sent at 2500 nits for example, your display may have clipped before or dimmed itself down more to show. It takes some of that load off the internal tone mapping of your display.

The OLED setting is 1000 nits, so everything above 1000 nits you play, will be mapped down to 1000 nits and sent out to your OLED.

Nice and spelled out for us. The Basic/PJ setting in the optimizer is about 500 nits right? So 1000 or 4000 nit highlights are coming down to 500?

I think 500 is correct.

I'm wishing they made the optimizer a slider bar from 0 nits to 10,000 so you could just select the exact range.

Let me know how it goes. I've got an older Mistubishi projector and am considering the 820 but since the projector has no HDR I'm wondering how useful the $500 purchase will be.

The ub900 did a much better job than the 203 in that regard. I am thinking I can't use the actual optimizer since I am outputting SDR, but I am hoping some of the other fine adjustments for bright and dark areas are still usable for my case. Thats what I am really interested to try. That would be an improvement over the single luminance slider on the ub900.

If it does SDR mapping as well or better then the ub900, I'll be good with it. If somehow it's worse, I'll probably return and just get another ub900 cheap.

Instead of buying the UB820 you can get a Bstock JVC X570/RS420 for a great deal now. That will give you a massive improvement in your image quality. I just bought one from mike Garrett’s company here on the forum and I love it. Huge improvement from my JVC 4910 from 2014!

Got my 820 setup. Connected to a JVC x770R projector via a Denon X4400H receiver. Setup was straight forward, it recognized the JVC projector as 4K HDR 4:4:4:12 bit. Wireless network setup was easy as well with a strong signal even though my basement has weak reception. There was a firmware update available (I believe 1.12). It's a pretty long process (maybe 15 minutes) but everything went smoothly.

Once done I set HDR optimization for projector mode.

First impressions coming from an Oppo 203 is that the PQ is every bit as good as the Oppo for HDR and standard Blu-Ray. Without an A/B comparison it's impossible to say which is better but the Panasonic picture is gorgeous. Colors look accurate and the picture is very sharp. HDR looks great, and sound quality is too notch.

The player is quick and the remote is very responsive.

I will be doing some comparisons with HDR optimizer but my initial impressions are very positive.

The UB820 is now available for order in Canada from Panasonic. MSRP CAD$499.99.

The UB420 is still nowhere to be seen.

Got my UB820 setup yesterday with my JVC RS4500 projector and played around a bit with the HDR options.

Wow, this looks fantastic. Probably the best picture I've seen thus far. Only tried a few UHDs so far, but I'm very happy with the unit.

I got my 820 setup last night and ran through some material to get a feel for how it performs. First, off I am using an older JVC 4910 that is not HDR. I am sending it 4k SDR BT2020 with the BT2020 color profile installed on the projector with an HDFury Integral to handle the EDID and HDCP handshake. So while I can't use the HDR optimizer than lets you pick a display type with the appropriate light output, I am using the optimizer parts that let you tweak the dynamic range. Interestingly the old "slider" called "Luminance Adjustment" is still there but is now for SDR content. The new dynamic range adjustments are under the optimizer options during playback. The main control that functions the same was as the ub900 slider is called "Dynamic Range Adjustment." There is a brightness control as well and bright and dark tone curve controls

So while I can't speak to the new HDR tone mapping for specific display types, I can say that from what I saw last night, SDR tone mapping is at least as good as the ub900. Also interesting in my case is that both the ub900 and the 203 would sometimes have a thin 1 pixel line down the right edge of the image that I would get rid of with the masking controls on my projector. It happened with some titles and not others and only when sending bt2020, but not rec709. I ran through about 10 discs including ones I know always resulted in that line, but it did not occur once with the 820.

The player itself is nicely build, comparable to the ub900. I didn't notice any objectionable drive or fan noise as some had mentioned. It is a lot faster to load and respond than both the ub900 and the oppo 203. I did find a strange audio delay when outputting PCM vs bitstream. I noticed during the 20th century fox logo, the second one that you hear when the movie is actually started. There is noticeable delay between the front and rears. Bitstream is fine. If this can be replicated I am sure it can be fixed.

My only real gripe is the remote is no longer the nice backlit version from the ub900 and now is the standard Panasonic remote. Now I'll be using my harmony anyways but it drove me nuts last night hitting the wrong buttons in the dark when tweaking settings. Especially hitting the Netflix button!! So I ordered a ub900 remote off ebay. Not necessary, but it'll save me frustration when I want to adjust the dynamic range settings on the fly.

I think Panasonic accomplished what they set out to do with the ub820. It's a solid, fast player. And once it gets the dolby vision update, it will be the most complete player on the market as far as HDR options go. So far so good.

Hey guys,

New here, but have been a lurker for sometime. I'm very happy everybody is getting their UB820 and so far loving them. I have some good insight on stock levels and availability for most Panasonic products, so any questions feel free to reach out. Robert is your guy if you want a UB820 now. They won't launch on the Panasonic site until 2 weeks from now. I'm tracking the UB9000 now, and only 5-6 are in the US. When they start shipping ill let you know!

Would love to get this player but I'm not sure how much better the HDR tone mapping from this player will be improve compared to my OLEDC8 dynamic tone mapping.......which I'm already using.

UB820 - SDR / BT2020 without HDFury

I have the Oppo 203, UB900 and now the UB820. Setup is a JVC RS600 / 142" 16:9 2.8HP



It may not make a difference to some but the included remote is not great for the price point. not even a backlight button. The UB900 remote is much nicer and thankfully works 100% with the UB820.



I tried the SDR/BT2020 setting with and without the Vertex, it works no problem.





It was late on first viewing but I was surprised how good the SDR/BT2020 looks. I will go back this weekend and look at an A/B with the UB900 / Vertex vs. the UB820. The optimization controls are available with the SDR/BT2020 mode but I didn't make any changes, it looked great with right out of the box settings. I'll spend time with direct HDR later tonight.

I also want to measure the color gamut in the SDR/BT2020 mode but from what I can see with Lucy, Mad Max and the Peru 8K video it looks like no issues vs. the Oppo tone mapping (WCG @ R709, still needs to be fixed) where I can see the difference even without the meter telling us what's happening.

100% agree on the remote. I have an ub900 remote inbound this weekend. SDR BT2020 looked good to me as well. I did play with the dynamic range adjustment between 0 and +4. I'm curious what you find when you test that adjustment as well as the dark and bright tone curve settings. Funny that the menus kind of tell you to leave them at 0 With a light contained projector like the 4910, boosting the dynamic range control can help and doesn't seem too detrimental as long as you don't go above 5. I need to check with some test patterns to see if it is doing anything wacky or raising the black floor. Honestly, the SDR conversion and control seems very much the same as the ub900, which is a good thing. At least it does not appear to be any worse.

I also like that Panasonic has included more explicit output settings. I still need the linker anyway to handle HDCP and EDID, but for others those settings will be useful.

Depending on how much the C8 dims down to preserve that real high nit detail, it may help a little. Probably will help a lot more on 2017 and below LG's. It will help on my Sonys not because they dim down to preserve, but they will clip, so it should bring back some high nit details.

I will wait until more people get their hands on this player. My concern will be for content with 1000+ nits and will the player dim the picture aggressively similar to LG's game mode back then.

The side by images posted the last few months from people in Europe show no dimming of the overall image, just restoration of highlight details. That is why I want it.
WOLVERNOLE and bigzee3 like this.
