Panasonic TX-55EX580B 55 Inch SMART 4K Ultra HD TV

Panasonic TX-55EX580B 55 Inch SMART 4K Ultra HD TV features and specs revealed, quick review

Panasonic TX-55EX580B is one of the popular big-screen TVs on the UK market in the last couple of years. Here is how Panasonic presented this TV some time ago:

"Our 4K HDR technology uses our professional picture quality know-how for delivering beautiful, lifelike images accurate to the director’s intention.

Advanced Color Processing uses our picture quality know-how to deliver faithful onscreen images. Specifically it delivers accurate colors and works to produce deeper blacks which retain detail even in dark scenes.

During 4K signal transmission to the TV via HDMI, the colour information can be slightly compromised, resulting in less-than-ideal color shading and gradation. With 4K Pure Direct, all color information and full resolution is transmitted to the TV, so that the picture retains its crisp, rich colors as intended in 4K Ultra HD.

Our 4K TVs support multiple HDR formats, such as HDR10 found on UHD Blu-ray discs and, with the 2017 models, now Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG), the HDR format developed by the BBC and Japan's NHK.

Because 4K internet video streaming is now supported by YouTube, NETFLIX and Amazon Video a wide variety of high-quality content is easily at fingertips. The UHD video signals are processed by our own 4K High-Precision Chroma Processor to achieve crisp, beautiful images.

Freeview Play combines catch-up, on-demand services and live television together in one place with no monthly costs. Find programs from BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4, Demand 5 and UKTV Play sitting alongside 70 TV channels and 15 HD channels. You definitely won’t be stuck for something to watch. Simply scroll back in your TV guide to watch shows you missed from the last 7 days. Just make sure your TV or recorder is connected to the Internet and you’re good to go. Our TVs have some unique Freeview Play features like the Quick Look Guide which shows thumbnail pictures of TV programs."
