CES: Panasonic presents 2022 OLED TV – LZ2000

Panasonic’s new TV, LZ2000, uses sensors to detect the color temperature of the light in the room and adjusts the picture accordingly, for example if you are watching TV when it is dark outside. The feature relies on Panasonic’s Auto AI mode, introduced last year, which uses artificial intelligence that real-time identifies the content being played and then automatically optimizes both image and sound accordingly.

The LZ2000 also introduces directional sound, in addition to Panasonic’s 360 ° Soundscape system, which can deliver Dolby Atmos. The speakers in the TV are upright, side and front, this should help to create a more immersive sound.

If you are a gamer, there is the function “Game Control Board” which, among other things, allows gamers to adjust black parts in dark scenes granularly, which makes it easier to see the route ahead or detect enemies hiding in the shadows. Panasonic has also further reduced the delay for 60Hz gaming, which is supported by most gaming consoles through its “60Hz Refresh Mode”.

An exciting feature for people with impaired vision is that accessibility settings are easily accessed via a context menu, which also provides voice guidance automatically.

The LZ2000 will be available in the 55-, 65- and 77-inch sizes. The LZ2000 supports most HDR formats, including Dolby Vision IQ, Dolby Vision, Filmmaker Mode and HDR10 +. All models have 4k resolution and support for Alexa and Google Assistant.

The LZ2000 65 & 55-inch will be launched in stores in June / July, while the 77-inch will be launched in August. Swedish prices are not available at the time of writing.
