What is one of man’s greatest inventions? Television, surely.
The humble television screen has educated, entertained and enlightened in ways unimaginable since its inception back at the end of the 19th century. But can a television really change your life for the better? Well, if your television is an ultra-high definition image projection machine, sleeker than a sports car and more connected than your Facebook account – we think it can. If it’s the Panasonic DX900S, absolutely.
The invention of the television transformed the world of entertainment. Families would huddle in front of these amazing wood and glass boxes that seemed to magically transport another world into their living rooms, crackling and static filled black and white worlds anyway - but still. Since those very early days, imaging technology has evolved at such a rate that modern televisions are near unrecognizable from their predecessors - even from those made only a decade ago.
Now the television arms race seems to be at its zenith, with companies scrambling to edge out their competition. Panasonic’s latest offering avoids any gimmicks: it’s just raw technological firepower, shoehorned into a minimalist package.
And whether you’re a TV addict or a casual couch-potato, the DX900S has something to improve your life for the better.
1) Art of Light
When the Japanese stick “Art of” as a prefix to anything, you know they mean business, and the “Art of Light” Design of the DX900S is no exception.
Stark and minimalist, the television seems to dominate the surrounding space, a monolithic thing of beauty. Turning it on creates the illusion of a dimensional rift occurring before your very eyes (especially if you happen to playing a videogame, in which dimensional rifts occur).
So if you’re looking for a piece of home decor to adorn your abode, skip the affordable art fair and throw away that Monet: the DX900S is designed to complement the interior of any room.
2) Is this the real life?
Like it or not, tomorrow’s world is a 4K one and the content is finally catching up with the technology. For example, games consoles are now coming out 4K-ready, while Netflix is offering an increasing number of their series shot in 4K. But being able to see the pores on the face of your favorite newscasters isn’t all the future offers - there’s also HDR.
High Dynamic Range (HDR) creates pictures so realistic and so vivid that they put you right into the heart of the action. Simply put, it is technology that allows for the juxtaposition of the brightest lights with the blackest blacks, with all the shades and hues between: just like how we actually see the world.
The Panasonic DX900s comes with UHD Premium and THX 4K-certified. In layman’s terms, that means it will be doing the work of your eyes for you, bringing you better images for gaming, and higher quality viewing so you can get lost in your favorite series. All at a level of realism we never thought possible - till now.
3) Satisfy those urges
Instant gratification has always been the driving force behind most of humanity’s technological advancements. And why should you be denied the pleasure of getting what you want, where you want and whenever you want it? The solution: a television that eliminates that divide between you and your content.
No changing sources, no switching channels, just one button to rule them all - and on it, printed the name of television heaven: Netflix. The DX900S comes with a dedicated Netflix button and runs on Firefox. Connect the TV to your Wi-Fi and you’re all set. Or what if you prefer to watch the latest YouTube video you shot on your phone over the latest series of Narcos? Simple the Swipe and Share function allows you to quickly throw the content on your smartphone or tablet straight to the TV with just a flick of the finger.
At last, you can achieve the uncluttered, wire-free minimalist look your inner-Scandinavian has always dreamed about.
4) Cinematic flourishes
What separates cinema from watching a movie at home? Beautiful, larger than life projections, Dolby surround sound and that annoying couple sitting next to you that just refuses to stop chatting. You know what would be better? If you could bring the cinema experience back home.
Not only is Panasonic’s DX900S a heavyweight when it comes to resolution and dynamic range, it comes tuned by Hollywood colorists, for the most accurate film viewing experience you could have outside of a movie premiere.
Now you can catch Leonardo Di Caprio drooling his way to Oscar glory, the way it was meant to be seen - without having to put up with sweaty, soda slurping fellow cinema goers invading your elbow space on the armrest.
So what are you waiting for, transform your life today. The TH-65DX900S model is priced at S$6999 and is now available in Singapore at authorised retailers. Head on down to your nearest outlet to discover how it can change your life for the better.
