Panasonic have announced and launched their very first 4K Ultra HDTV at IFA 2013 in Berlin.
Their 65-inch Panasonic TX-L65WT600 Ultra HD TV from the WT600 series also grabs a world’s first, by being the first 4K TV to support the newly announced HDMI 2.0 input. This means it can support a 4K video singal with 60p, 50/60Hz allowing a frame rate of upto 60fps rather than 24fps. Sony has announced that their new “cheaper” XBR-55X850A, XBR-65X850A (X8) will support HDMI 2.0 out of the box, and their X9 models will receive a firmware update shortly adding support.
The Panasonic TX-L65WT600 of course has a 4K Ultra HD resoltuion of 3840 x 2160 pixels, 4x that of standard 1080p full HD, and is LED edge lit. It makes use of an LCD panel, so no famous Panasonic plasma here, but we doubt we will see a 4K plasma panel from anyone as everyone is slowly moving towards OLED.Read more
