There are other features like local dimming where the black color is enhanced to make the viewing clearer, there is the HDR and so on. The display on the super bright panel is rated at 550nits. The processor on this TV is the "Studio Colour HCX2".
This flagship television from Panasonic is being bundled with its all in one speaker system UA7 comprising 10 units: Four woofers, two super woofers and four tweeters. The combined system is able to deliver 1700W of sound. In all the company expects the customers to enjoy a home theater level quality viewing and listening with this bundle.
