To say that the JZ2000 is packed with features and reflection is a bit of an understatement. Before we get to the technical, we start with the cultural element. Panasonic has collaborated with Stefan Sonnenfeld, who is an expert in coloring films for Hollywood productions, including A Star is Born, Wonder Woman, Man of Steel, Beauty and the Beast, Star Wars: The Force Awakens to name a few. This is so that the image will be as good as possible when you select the movie mode.
Now to the technology! The JZ2000 is equipped with Panasonic’s new HCX Pro AI processor. This enables automatic optimization of both image and sound quality based on the type of content displayed. Thanks to the processor, Panasonic has been able to reduce the latency that occurs during gaming. The JZ2000 has one of the industry’s lowest latencies in the OLED TV segment. More candy for gamers is support for variable refresh rate (vrr) and high frame rate (hfr).
The JZ2000 ai processor can identify the content being played back in real time by continuously analyzing the image. In a special enclave in the processor, it then compares what it sees with a library with different content that it has learned, to automatically optimize both image and sound. If it notices that you’re watching football, it adjusts the image quality to make the grass more vivid, the players more realistic while adjusting the sound, so that it feels (according to Panasonic we want to point out) like you’re in the arena. Of course, it supports HDR-10, Dolby Vision IQ, Dolby Vision, and HLG Photo.
The built-in speakers support Dolby Atmos and are manufactured in collaboration with Panasonic’s sound division, Technics, which is anything but a beginner in the sound industry. The JZ2000 has the latest version of Panasonic’s smart TV os, My Homescreen. Last but not least, dual bluetooth connection allows the TV to send audio to two separate bluetooth devices at the same time, which means that if you are two, you can each sit with any bluetooth headset.
Price and exact date are unknown at the time of writing.
