At CES, Panansonic has unveiled the GZ2000, the world’s first 4K OLED TV to support both HDR10+ and Dolby Vision HDR formats.

Available in 65 and 55-inch screen sizes, the GZ2000 features a “Professional Edition 4K OLED panel” that’s heavily customized by Panasonic’s engineers and tuned by leading Hollywood colorist Stefan Sonnenfeld. The TV supports Imaging Science Foundation (ISF) calibration settings as well Portrait Displays’ CalMAN software.

The GZ2000 is powered by Panasonic’s HCX Pro processor and now comes with an even faster dynamic LUT. All this means the TV is able to display the correct color even when brightness and contrast levels vary rapidly within a scene.

In addition to HDR10+ and Dolby Vision, the GZ2000 also works with the regular HDR10 format, broadcast content that uses Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG), and HLG Photo, which is a new still image format.

The GZ2000 also supports Dolby Atmos object-based surround audio. To deliver a convincing Atmos experience, the 4K has built-in upward-firing speakers. The sound system has also gone through tuning by engineers from Panasonic’s acclaimed audio brand, Technics, and features Technics’ proprietary JENO Engine.

The upward-firing speakers are located on the back of the TV.

Finally on the software side of things, the GZ2000 uses Panasonic’s new My Home Screen 4.0 interface. It will work with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, allowing users to operate key TV functions with only their voice.

Pricing and availability details of the new Panasonic GZ2000 4K OLED TV aren't available at the moment.
