The Panasonic TX-42LZ980B is a compact TV that clearly demonstrates the brilliance of OLED.
HCX Pro AI processor gives you the finest picture – at all times of the day
The latest version of Panasonic’s most powerful picture processor is better than ever, with this Panasonic 42-inch TV. Using a sensor, it now detects the ambient lighting condition and adjusts the picture to suit. Each colour tone is adjusted individually, ensuring that sensitive colours, such as flesh tones, remain natural while whites that appear unnatural in the ambient light are subtly enhanced.
The ideal picture setting for the content, with Auto AI
Panasonic’s smart Auto AI processor also identifies the type of content you’re watching – such as movie, sports, music or news – and automatically optimises the picture and sound settings to suit. This gives you the very best in sound and vision, without having to make any user adjustments.
Tuned by a “da Vinci of the movies”
Stefan Sonnenfeld is a leading Hollywood movie colourist. Described by NPR as a “da Vinci of the movies”, his credits include; A Star is Born, Wonder Woman, Man of Steel, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Jurassic World, 300 and many more. Not only does he use Panasonic OLED screens for his work, but he has also helped tune the colour of this LZ980 model – giving you a Hollywood colour at home.
Better than ever for gaming with Game Control Board
Panasonic’s new Game Control Board focuses all the relevant gaming settings in one place. These are overlaid over the image, so you don’t have to leave the game to adjust. Overlays include source information, Dark Visibility Enhancer, HDR Tonemap, Input Lag and VRR and Viewing Mode.
SPD Auto Game Mode for lightning response
With SPD Auto Game Mode, the LZ980B automatically detects HDMI2.1 4K HFR/VRR-supporting NVIDIA GPUs and optimises the input lag and VRR to the best settings. This gives you a lightning response, without having to trawl through multiple settings.
Dolby Atmos and Cinema Surround Pro for enveloping sound
Compatible with Dolby Atmos sound, this Panasonic TV creates a more immersive, enveloping sound. For even more immersion, select the Cinema Surround Pro setting, or use the HDMI eARC or optical digital output to add a soundbar or base.
HDR10+ Adaptive and Dolby Vision IQ – ultimate detail in all lighting conditions
HDR10+ Adaptive and Dolby Vision IQ take HDR10 and Dolby Vision to the next level, making them the ultimate HDR-type picture processors. HDR10+ Adaptive and Dolby Vision IQ use light sensors inside the TV to adjust the picture quality for the best contrast. This improves the picture’s brightness, without ‘washing out’ the depth. You get a consistent picture quality, however light or dark your room is.
Multi-format HDR support for a stunning picture from all sources
As well as HDR10+ Adaptive and Dolby Vision IQ, this Panasonic 42-inch OLED TV also offers multi-format HDR, including HDR10+, HDR10, HLG and HLG Photo. With so much HDR processing ability on board, you’re guaranteed the most detailed and brightest picture, whatever the HDR format.
See the picture exactly as originally intended, with Filmmaker Mode
Featuring exclusive technology from Panasonic, Filmmaker Mode makes the best of any movie. Designed in collaboration with filmmakers and Hollywood studios, Filmmaker Mode lets you experience the cinematic vision, exactly as the director intended. Overriding the TV’s own motion and picture processing, it presents the correct aspect ratio, colour and frame rate – just as the filmmakers intended. Panasonic adds Intelligent Sensing to Filmmaker mode, so that the picture reacts intelligently to changes in light, automatically giving you the most cinematic picture possible.
HomeScreen 7.0 for smart TV
The latest version of Panasonic’s HomeScreen improves accessibility and the myScenery function. The new accessibility menu automatically triggers voice guidance and lets you easily configure settings such as audio description and audio dialogue enhancement. HomeScreen 7.0 supports all major streaming services and uses thumbnail images, making it easier to find your favourite programme. Support for Google Assistant and Alexa means you can also find content via voice command. The improved myScenery feature offers a wider selection of still imagery, as well as nature sounds from the Joy Foundation Inc.
More smart features
As well as all the popular streaming apps, the HomeScreen 7.0 also gives you access to a full web browser. DLNA-certified streaming makes it easy to transfer music and video files from your home computer, laptop or NAS drive to the TV. Also standard is Swipe and Share functionality. Swipe and share lets you use the Panasonic Remote TV app for smartphone media sharing. By using the app on your smartphone or tablet, you can easily stream pictures, 4K videos and music straight to the TV – no cables required.
Enjoy top-quality Panasonic picture, sound and smartness, with the Panasonic TX-42LZ980B.
