TUNED BY HOLLYWOOD
For top end OLED TVs, Panasonic’s technical accuracy is made possible by Japanese knowhow and engineering, merged with the colour-tuning skills of Stefan Sonnenfeld.
Stefan Sonnenfeld, Founder and CEO of Company 3 is a trusted collaborator of some of the world’s best filmmakers. Sonnenfeld is among a handful of leading artists who have championed the power of colour grading to tell stories and communicate emotion.
Described by NPR as the “da Vinci of the movies,” Sonnenfeld has applied his skills as a colourist to many of the most acclaimed and popular features of the past decade: Top Gun: Maverick, A Star is Born, Wonder Woman, Man of Steel, Beauty and the Beast, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Jurassic World, 300 and many more. Like many other leading colourists, he uses Panasonic OLED screens as large-format client reference monitors in his daily workflow. Indeed, Panasonic’s OLED TVs are widely used in studios and postproduction houses.
The improved Filmmaker Mode that ensures that viewers can enjoy their content exactly as the artist intended – whether they’re watching in a purpose-built cinema room or an airy family living space.
Ambient colour temperature sensing has been upgraded for Filmmaker Mode, ensuring accurate picture reproduction in any lighting conditions; for example, by lowering the temperature in response to warmly lit conditions, or brightening the dark tones in extremely light environments.
LEVEL UP YOUR GAMING
Gaming has developed rapidly in recent years. Plots are scripted like Hollywood blockbusters, 3D worlds are bigger and more realistic than ever before, and there are myriad gaming universes to explore.
To fully immerse in this growing world of entertainment, gamers have traditionally turned to monitors to get the most out of the latest consoles and PCs that offer advanced rendering technologies and superfast load times.
However, this can all now be achieved with the latest Panasonic OLED TVs, which deliver the experience as it was intended by games developers. Panasonic’s gaming enhancements in 2022 were recognised not just by gamers but by gaming studios and professional eSports teams – and in 2023 this commitment to gamers has gone up a whole new level.
Panasonic is happy to announce that it is the official TV partner for Diablo IV® in EMEA. Developed by Blizzard Entertainment. Diablo IV heralds an expansive world built on two pillars: “the old masters” and “return to darkness”. The "old masters" pillar considers the techniques classical painters used, with their controlled use of detail, tonal range, and expert use of colour palettes. The "return to darkness" pillar focuses on portraying Sanctuary as a dangerous and dark medieval gothic world.
“I can't think of many things in which colour balance is more important than Diablo IV. We have a very subtle colour palette. Creating something that feels like an old masterpiece requires the ability to portray this world in a very nuanced way”, said John Mueller, Art Director of Diablo IV.
To ensure every title looks its best, the new True Game Mode⁵ brings all the colour accuracy features available for movies into the world of gaming, while improved HDR Tone Mapping delivers source-oriented expression from the gaming device. In addition, True Game Mode is calibratable and shows the Calman Calibrated logo after adjustment with Portrait Displays’ Calman® Color calibration software – the de facto standard in the world of content creation, distribution, and playback. This means True Game Mode reproduces games as intended by their creators.
Support for HDMI 2.1 key features, full 4K resolution, up to 120Hz refresh rate, ultra-low latency, and input lag, VRR, and AMD FreeSync™ Premium technology provide the perfect solution for gamers. Meanwhile, Dolby Vision® is supported by all TV models with Game Mode Extreme⁶.
Panasonic OLED TVs with HXC PRO AI also support Nvidia G-SYNC, which provides smooth and sharp gameplay for PC gamers⁷.
