The centrally mounted plinth stand, for instance, is surprisingly small compared with the screen real estate it’s supporting, meaning the HX940 can be placed on a relatively narrow piece of furniture. Brightness and color gamut are just enough for HDR, but the real impact is missing. Services such as BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4 and My5 are also available without having to open specific applications.

Freeview Play 4K Ultra High Definition The backlight is divided into 8 columns, Panasonic controls them very carefully and avoids that you have obvious segments running. It’s worth noting, too, that last year’s equivalent model, the 75GX940, is no longer available. In the True Cinema image mode, the input lag is 122.1ms, which is a lot. The 75HX940’s brightness stability, though, is impressive with both dark and bright HDR shots, and there’s certainly still enough brightness to deliver an HDR experience that actually looks like HDR. Due to the local dimming, small bright details can also lose a lot of brightness. Installation of the TX-55HXW944 is very simple and self-explanatory . Internet enabled devices allow you access to a wealth of online content through Wi-Fi, dongle or Ethernet connection. In our other test pattern we get about 1280: 1 with local dimming.

The screen is slightly bothered by reflections, which it sometimes spreads quite wide on the screen. In game mode it drops to 15ms, a very good result even for demanding gamers. This is mainly due to the modest volume. The Panasonic HXW944 shows slightly more white detail than necessary. Excellent deinterlacing makes jagged edges very exceptional, important for live TV that is often broadcast in 1080i.

The processor can hide light color bands well, which is also covered by the MPEG noise reduction. In the specifications we find support for DolbyAtmos, but only a very modest 2x 10W system. Looking at the HDMIs more closely, though, does lead to some disappointment: namely, no support for either 4K at 120Hz or variable refresh rates, both of which are useful for the next-gen PS5 and Xbox Series X game consoles. Usually I’d say even a 75-inch TV installation is just a two-man job. More info about our measuring equipment can be found here. This creates a dynamic tone mapping in real time.

Panasonic’s highest performance 4K LED TV, the HX940, relays a remarkable picture on its slim screen thanks to the HCX Pro Intelligent Processor, advanced HDR support, Hollywood picture tuning and Local Dimming Pro technology, delivering high-quality motion, colour and contrast. We know a lot now about the Apple iPhone 12, including the fact that it is slated to get an official reveal on October 13, 2020. Panasonic can’t currently give any time frame for these apps appearing, either. The sound even has a little forward projection, as well as spreading out to left and right. You want OLED-like black levels Even though the 75HX940 delivers better black levels than you’d expect from an edge-lit 75-inch screen, there’s more greyness around in dark scenes than you’d get with an OLED TV (or some premium direct-lit LCD TVs).
