Panasonic UB150/UB450 Anticipation Thread

Panasonic keeps rolling along with new 4K disc players...

http://www.avforums.com/news/ces-20...-players.15698

Quote:
Panasonic has added the UB450 and UB150 models to its already extensive line-up of 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray players.
The two new players both support HDR10+ and the UB450 also supports Dolby Vision, which means the latter can handle both dynamic metadata formats. By optimising the brightness of each image, scene by scene, these cutting-edge HDR formats faithfully reproduce HDR images that accurately match the creator’s original intentions.

These new players also feature Dolby Atmos and DTS:X compatibility, enabling you to enjoy an exceptionally immersive 3D soundstage with a compatible audio device such as a TV, soundbar or AV receiver. In addition to conventional surround sound, Dolby Atmos and DTS:X use height channels to precisely place sound effects or the sounds of individual objects at or above ear level.

Panasonic’s new Ultra HD Blu-ray players are equipped with High-Resolution Audio reproduction, so in addition to conventional MP3/AAC/WMA formats, Hi-Res audio music files such as DSD (11.2MHz/5.6 MHz/2.8 MHz) ALAC, FLAC, WAV and AIFF can be reproduced. Simply by connecting to a home audio system users can enjoy music sources with unmatched studio master sound quality.

The UB450 series also features dual HDMI outputs for isolating and separately transmitting TV (4K video) and amplifier audio. By separating audio and video signals unwanted noise is suppressed, which results in the highest-quality sound reproduction.

Wonder if the 450 will have the same PQ as the 820/9000? HCX Chip?

Introducing Panasonic’s UB450 and UB150 Blu-ray Players with HDR10+ and Dolby Vision™

Two new Ultra HD Blu-ray players with support for HDR10+ dynamic metadata (UB150/UB450) and Dolby Vision (UB450)

Compatibility with Dolby Atmos® [DTS:X] home cinema sound systems

Support for wide range of media formats gives maximum flexibility

7th January 2019 – Panasonic today announced the launch of its latest Ultra HD Blu-ray players, the DP-UB150 and DP-UB450 series, with both models supporting HDR10+ dynamic metadata technology and the UB450 series also offering Dolby Vision. By optimising the brightness of each image, scene by scene, these cutting-edge HDR formats faithfully reproduce HDR images that faithfully match the creator’s original intentions. Thanks to these image-optimising technologies, both the DP-UB150 and DP-UB450 series deliver a highly cinematic experience with richly textured images.

Both players feature Dolby Atmos compatibility, enabling you to enjoy an exceptionally immersive 3D soundstage with a compatible audio device such as a TV, soundbar or AV receiver. In addition to conventional surround sound, Dolby Atmos uses height channels to precisely place sound effects or the sounds of individual objects at or above ear level. Paired with an audio system that can decode Dolby Atmos, the result is breathtaking movie sound from the UB450 and UB150 series.

The addition of the UB450 and UB150 series to Panasonic’s UHD Blu-ray family follows the recent launch of the highly acclaimed 'EISA High-end UHD Blu-ray Player 2018-2019' reference model, the UB9000 Series.

Stunning picture quality from 4K/HDR content
Support for HDR10+ dynamic metadata technology and Dolby Vision

Both players feature HDR (high dynamic range), which has a wider, brighter dynamic range than conventional SDR (standard dynamic range) to produce more natural, more lifelike images when viewed on an HDR compatible TV.

More than that, both models are also compatible with HDR10+, the latest version of HDR, which uses ‘dynamic’ metadata to re-optimise the brightness continually throughout the movie rather than sticking to a single ‘static’ setting. The result is the ultimate home cinema experience, with even more dynamic, colourful and realistic HDR images that precisely match the creator's intention. In addition, the UB450 supports Dolby Vision, a similar alternative to HDR10+. With the UB450 UHD Blu-ray player and a compatible TV (such as the new Panasonic GZ2000) consumers are assured of seeing fully what the filmmaker intended, regardless of which dynamic HDR format has been used.

4K camcorder video and JPEG playback
4K videos (MP4 format) made with a camera or camcorder can be reproduced using Panasonic's 2019 Ultra HD Players, while JPEG data can be output in 4K resolution so users can enjoy the memories of vacation trips in all their natural beauty.

High Quality Sound: Unique audio technologies achieve rich sound reproduction
High-Resolution Audio playback from a wide range of formats

Panasonic’s new Ultra HD Blu-ray players are equipped with High-Resolution Audio reproduction. In addition to conventional MP3/AAC/WMA formats, additionally high res audio music files such as DSD (11.2MHz/5.6 MHz/2.8 MHz) ALAC, FLAC, WAV and AIFF can be reproduced. Simply by connecting to a home audio system users can enjoy music sources with the unmatched studio master sound quality.

Twin HDMI Pure AV (Audio/Video isolated twin HDMI)

The UB450 series and UB159 model feature dual HDMI outputs for isolating and separately transmitting TV (4K video) and amplifier audio. By separating audio and video signals unwanted noise is suppressed, which results in the highest-quality sound reproduction. The Player can also output the latest surround formats including Dolby Atmos*. When using a sound system compatible with Dolby Atmos soundtracks, it creates the most sonically immersive soundstage available.

* For Blu-ray Discs which include Dolby Atmos.

If you are asking if the UB450 will have the HDR Optimizer, the discussion at
http://www.avforums.com/threads/ces...ayers.2209787/

appears to imply "Yes", but until someone confirms the chipset/featureset and/or does a handson/teardown, we won't know for sure
