Design and connectivity
Perhaps where this Panasonic TX-50DX800E stands out most is in its design baptized as “freestyle design”That promises harmony, adaptation and integration as one more element of the house according to the manufacturer. If “what takes” is that the screen floats almost on the table and that the base goes unnoticed (and if it hides the cables, better than better) and that almost not even visually attached to the screen, here we have everything otherwise; two brackets that hold it on the sides like an easel and leave a space underneath for the speaker. It is as if the manufacturer invited you to paint the image yourself … but yes, in terms of design there is nothing written and for tastes … As for space to rush the little space of our table perhaps it is not one of the best, let’s say as a practical negative point.
Its connectivity is one of the most complete on the market, so it’s a pleasure. Dispose of USB recorder from pendrive or hard drives and has HID with which you can connect a keyboard and mouse to navigate much more comfortably through the system of this Panasonic TX-50DX800E. It also has DLNA and various functions to interact with it, such as the function In-House TV Streaming:
It consists of nothing more and nothing less that we can see the current broadcast of any channel or content on any other compatible client television without the need for an antenna socket. Only thanks to our router and Wi-Fi connection at home can we have access and control without the need for cables or additional facilities. No more hiring additional decoders from our audiovisual operator with its consequent monthly rental cost. The Panasonic TX-50DX800E is a server and a client with which it would be prepared to send and receive that signal from any compatible TV model.
Panasonic TX-50DX800E: Image quality and general functions
Here if Panasonic shows chest highlighting that you will have a cinema image with its THX certificate thanks to it, it combines a wide range of cinematic colors with local dimming to offer defined blacks and a more than remarkable level of brightness. This Panasonic TX-50DX800E passes the strict standard of performance and image quality made in George Lucas (creator of the sound and THX protocol) guaranteeing an experience faithful to the intention of the filmmakers.
Your processor 4K Studio Master HCX it is the jewel in Panasonic’s crown for image processing. It has professional-quality color management technology and a wide color gamut to produce a greater color gamut than the original film. In addition, the system has been adjusted in Panasonic laboratories in Hollywood touching the colors, blacks or brightness all of this to be as faithful as possible to the creators of the images.
As for the sound little or nothing bad to say. Excellent idea to “remove the sound” from the chassis of the television to offer sound in capital letters, not like in other models as thin as this one in which it is impossible to put a sound box worthy of being enjoyed without metallic touches. In this sense we have 4 speakers of 40W in total with VR-Audio Master Surround 2.1. Come on, we need only popcorn to enjoy the home theater.
Software analysis / SmartTV
This Panasonic TX-50DX800E incorporates my Home Screen 2.0 based on Firefox OS that offers us interesting functions and promises us an experience without slowdowns. That if, against we miss more than one and two applications that would be interesting on television. Apparently the operating system itself and consequently TVs with this system do not go the way of creating and improving apps, so in this sense, if Firefox OS gives fluidity when it comes to browsing all SmartTV (which It is not little) but do not expect a variety of apps or applications that you use more often.
The “intelligent” thing comes without a doubt because of its my Home Screen It contains links to access your favorite applications and content (either marked by you or by the television itself depending on your use). In addition you will feel that it is your TV since even each member of the family can have their own personalized screen.
Another interesting option is the Swipe & Share, or what is the same, as with the app Panasonic TV Remote We can launch our Panasonic TX-50DX800E through our wifi and just by sliding our fingers up on the screen of our smartphone or tablet, either multimedia content or a replica of what is seen on the terminal. Devices using IOS 5.0.1 and later or Android 4.0 and later are supported.
