Taking High Dynamic Range to the Max
Multi HDR Support
The UB420 supports multiple HDR formats, such as HDR10 (which is the standard HDR format for films and UHD Blu-Ray discs) and HDR10+ dynamic metadata, and is compatible with Hybrid Log-Gamma. This multi format combination delivers precise image expression.
HDR Content with Even Greater Detail
Panasonic's original image processing technologies achieve HDR images with higher definition by utilising our unique adjustment functions. Tone mapping is used to adjust the brightness level of the content. And even HDR images from ordinary HDR10 and TV footage which do not support special new formats like HDR10+ provide optimal playback.
