Live From CES: Panasonic Intros 4K Blu-Ray Player Prototype, Nine UHD Sets

Panasonic’s consumer-electronics plans for 2015 will be highlighted by the introduction of a prototype Blu-ray player capable of playing 4K content and four UHD TV series comprising nine new models.

“The Blu-ray disc prototype paves the way towards enabling consumers to enjoy the crisp true-to-life quality and high dynamic range of UHD in their own homes,” said Julie Bauer, president of Panasonic Consumer Electronics Corp. of North America.

The CX850 UHD set is the new flagship model, offering new technology via White Color Phosphors that allow it to display 98% of the Digital Cinema Initiatives (DCI) as well as color-accuracy technology currently available only in professional studio monitors.

“We will be lining our TVs up against professional studio monitors [at our booth] to show how accurate they are,” added Bauer.
