Panasonic unveiled the world's first Ultra HD Premium TV, the DX900, at CES 2016. It meets the UHD Alliance's strict standards for Ultra HD Premium TVs.

TVs are a prominent feature of CES 2016, so it often takes something special to stand out. Panasonic has taken that challenge on and announced the Panasonic DX900, the first LED LCD TV in the world to meet the requirements of the ‘Ultra HD Premium’ specification.

The UHD Alliance (UHDA) group’s criteria takes in a range of factors from resolution and high dynamic range (HDR) performance to image precision, wide colour gamuts, and more.

Panasonic says that the DX900 manages to combine the extreme brightness that LCD screens are known for with the contrast and black level response that Panasonic’s plasma TVs produce. It added that the DX900 is capable of delivering the brightness highs and black level depths of a great HDR experience.

The DX900 also features a customisable TV home screen, which is powered by Firefox OS. This helps viewers find exactly what they’re looking for quickly, as they can access their favourite channels, apps, videos, websites, and other content.

The Panasonic DX900 will launch in spring 2016 in 65-inch and 58-inch variants.
