About the Panasonic DP-UB820

The new king of Blu-ray picture quality

Ever since Oppo stopped building their fantastic Blu-ray players in 2018, we've been waiting for another player that could match their reference-quality picture and sound. Panasonic's DP-UB820 is definitely a contender. In head-to-head tests, some reviewers have found that the DP-UB820 slightly outperforms the Oppos, at least when it comes to 4K Blu-ray playback and upconversion of 1080p Blu-rays.

The new king of Blu-ray picture quality

Ever since Oppo stopped building their fantastic Blu-ray players in 2018, we've been waiting for another player that could match their reference-quality picture and sound. Panasonic's DP-UB820 is definitely a contender. In head-to-head tests, some reviewers have found that the DP-UB820 slightly outperforms the Oppos, at least when it comes to 4K Blu-ray playback and upconversion of 1080p Blu-rays.

If you have an entry-level 4K TV, this player will provide a slightly better picture than more basic 4K players. But if you're a videophile with high-end equipment, the DP-UB820's powerful processing and flexible adjustments will help your 4K TV or 4K projector deliver the best possible 4K/HDR picture.

Getting the best HDR picture quality

A big part of why 4K Blu-ray and streamed 4K content looks so lifelike is HDR — High Dynamic Range. It can provide a much wider range of contrast and colors than HDTVs ever could. But while all current 4K TVs can accept HDR-enhanced signals, many can't display the full potential of HDR due to their limited peak brightness. This Panasonic player can help your TV overcome that problem.

It comes down to "nits"...

A TV's brightness is measured in "nits." Before TVs had HDR, typical peak brightness was around 250-300 nits, and most TV shows and movies were mastered at 100 nits. By comparison, today's OLED and midrange LED-LCD 4K TVs produce peaks of 700-1000 nits, and a handful of the brightest LED TVs can hit peaks of 1200-1500 nits. Meanwhile, 4K/HDR content is mastered at levels up to 4000 nits — way beyond the capability of any consumer 4K TV.

...and tone mapping

So how do you display 4000-nit content on a TV capable of only 25% of that brightness level? Tone mapping. This process helps a TV properly display content with higher peak brightness than the TV was designed to support. There's a lot of variation in the way tone mapping works from one TV maker to another, and what often happens on high-brightness material is the extreme highlights are "clipped," resulting in a "blown out" look that obscures detail.

Panasonic has developed some unique menu controls that make it easy to improve the look of HDR-enhanced content on your 4K TV. For example, you can choose from four tone-mapping options that are customized for different TV brightness levels:

  • OLED is recommended for OLED TVs like those from LG and Sony 
  • Super High Luminance (1500 nits) is ideal for the brightest LED-LCD TVs, like Sony's X9 and Z9 models, and Samsung's Q90R QLED models
  • Middle or High Luminance (1000 nits) is the best choice for most mid-range LED-LCD TVs
  • Basic Luminance (500 nits) should be the best option for 4K projectors, and more basic 4K TVs with lower brightness

Selecting the appropriate setting for your display should provide better-looking HDR picture quality with more visible fine detail in bright and dark areas of the screen.

You can further fine-tune HDR performance with the HDR Optimizer feature. It lets you adjust brightness based on the light level in your room. These picture adjustments work whether you're watching a UHD Blu-ray disc or 4K streamed content using the player's Netflix® app.

Sound that keeps you riveted

Panasonic didn't forget about the sound — all the top movie formats are supported. There's built-in processing for the most common flavors of Dolby and DTS surround, and you can send three-dimensional audio formats like Dolby Atmos or DTS:X to a compatible receiver via HDMI. When it comes to music, the player delivers crisp, detailed sound for your CDs, and its advanced DACs can handle high-res PCM and DSD audio files.

The DP-UB820's versatile design includes a 7.1-channel set of RCA outputs for getting great surround sound even when connecting to A/V receivers that lack HDMI.

    Video Section

    Twin HDMI Outputs: The Panasonic Ultra HD Blu-ray player is equipped with twin HDMI outputs (One HDMI 2.0a output and one HDMI 1.4a output) for separating audio and video signals for higher quality picture and sound, or for enjoying two of the same high definition audio/video signals simultaneously. The HDMI 2.0a output resolution can be set to 480p, 1080i, 1080p, 2160p (4K), or Auto. The HDMI 1.4a output terminal does not support 4K and is limited to standard (480p) or high definition (1080i/1080p).

    Note: It is not possible to output 4K, HDR, or 3D video content from either HDMI outputs when you have both set to output audio/video signals.

    Ultra HD 4K Playback & Upscaling: The Panasonic DP-UB820P-K supports 4K(60Hz) video playback with 4x the resolution of full 1080p HD. Its newly develolped 4K engine delivers incredibly life-like images with a level of detail and clarity like you've never seen before. The player will even upscale your favorite high-definition (1080i/1080p) content to 4K Ultra-HD (3,840 x 2,160). The Panasonic DP-UB820P-K garners UHD Alliance's ULTRA HD PREMIUM logo which identifies products and services that meet or exceed strict performance levels for 4K resolution, high dynamic range (HDR), and wide color spectrum.

    Note: This unit does not contain any analog video outputs.

    HCX Processor: Panasonic's powerful HCX processor (Hollywood Cinema Experience) delivers precise chroma and HDR processing for optimal brightness, color and detail in all your 4K/HDR content. The HCX processor delivers life-like depth effects and vivid colors through high contrast between dark and light areas, as well as displays sharp and beautiful images enhanced by smooth motion. It also provides HDR-to-SDR conversion for your non-HDR television.

    • Chroma Processing: The unit supports up to 4:4:4 chroma subsampling for full color data rendering of ultra high-definition video. This allows the Ultra HD Blu-ray player to offer twice the color range of existing conventional Blu-ray players and 64x higher color expressions, surpassing the digital cinema standard. With 4K high precision processing and upscaling, 4K (4:2.0) image color signals are interpolated into 4K (4:4:4) by an advanced chroma process to give you full, natural textures and depth. As a result, you'll get to enjoy realistic picture quality like never before.
    • HDR Optimizer: The HDR Optimizer will display highly bright scenes with smooth gradations based on the luminance information (static metadata) of your playback content. It can even improve high-brightness imaging on HDR-compatible TVs with low peak brightness. Select which type of HDR compatible TV you own - OLED, Super High Luminance LCD, Middle Luminance LCD, or Basic (Low) Luminance LCD/Projector.
    • HDR-to-SDR: When this unit is connected to a TV that does not support HDR (High Dynamic Range), the player's HDR video output is converted to a SDR (Standard Dynamic Range) video signal. You then can manually adjust the dynamic range of the image to produce the best brightness and contrast.

    HDR Video: The DP-UB820 supports four HDR (High Dynamic Range) formats; including HDR10, HDR10+, Dolby Vision, and Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG). HDR reproduces a greater dynamic range of luminosity or brightness levels, bringing greater contrast & wider color spectrum to the screen. This increased contrast reveals the subtle nuances of the image, from detailed blacks and shadows to the brightest whites and colors, plus greater depth. Previously hidden areas of dark shadow and sunlight are now full of clarity and detail.

    • HDR10: HDR10 is an open standard and currently the most popular HDR format on the market. It supports 10-bit color and 1,000 nits. It uses static metadata at the start of a movie to tell the receiver and your TV that the video content is encoded using HDR.
    • HDR10+: HDR10+ is a a new open standard that leverages dynamic metadata to produce enhanced contrast and colors. The HDR10+ technology incorporates dynamic metadata that allows the player to adjust brightness levels on a scene-by-scene or even frame-by-frame basis. By applying individualized tone mapping to each scene, HDR10+ delivers an incredible viewing experience. The picture quality offers an enhanced visual experience with more detailed expressions, brighter shadow areas and more accurate color renderings that stay true to the creator's original intent.
    • Dolby Vision: Dolby Vision adjusts brightness, color, and contrast automatically for each scene. It supports 12-bit color and 10,000 nits. Dynamic metadata carries information that maps every image to your TV's display capabilities, so you see more of what the content creator intended. As a result, Dolby Vision delivers incredible brightness, color, contrast, detail, and dimensionality.  
    • HLG: HLG (Hybrid-Log Gamma) is primarily designed for live video feed and over-the-air broadcasts. It uses no pre-encoded metadata and is backwards compatible with SDR. HLG's native compatibility allows much of today's existing SDR infrastructure to be re-used for HDR in the future.

    Note: Please use a premium high speed HDMI cable with 18 Gbps and above to view Ultra HD and HDR content.

    24p Output: Movies are typically recorded on film with a frame rate of 24 frames per second. When a movie is transferred to Blu-ray Disc at 24 frames per second, the DP-UB820P-K will output that signal to the TV (if the TV will accept the 1080p/24 format) with no need for conversion.

    3D-Ready: The Panasonic DP-UB820P-K UHD Blu-ray disc player supports 3D playback of high-definition (up to 1080p) 3D Blu-ray discs when connected to a 3D-Ready HDTV via HDMI, along with wearing a pair 3D vision glasses.

    Deep Color & x.v. Color: The Panasonic UHD Blu-ray player supports a color depth of up to 12 bits. Connecting the player and a TV that supports Deep Color via HDMI allows more accurate color reproduction than when connecting it to a TV that does not support Deep Color. This player can also playback AVCHD discs using the x.v.Color format. x.v.Color offers a wider color range than normal DVD camcorder discs.

    Picture Adjustments: You can make picture adjustments to tailor the image quality to your type of content and preference. You can choose between a variety of Picture Types (Normal / Cinema / Fine Cinema / Retro Cinema / Animation / Live), based on what type of movie or TV show you are watching. You can fine-tune the picture image by manually adjusting the picture's Brightness, Contrast, Color Saturation, Hue, Sharpness. In addition, you can turn on Noise Reduction (Block / Random / Mosquito) to reduce unnecessary noise in videos.

    Will this play discs without having an internet connection?

    Absolutely it will play discs without ever having an internet connection. Connecting it to the internet from time to time is advisable however as you will want to take advantage of firmware updates even if you don't want to use the built in streaming apps.
    [ Todd  May 26, 2020 ]
    Yes it does. They are not linked.
    [ Prasad  May 23, 2020 ]
    Yes it will play discs without any internet connection. You will not be able to update the firmware on a regular basis. I'm not sure if you can use a USB dive to perform the update instead of having a direct connection to the internet?
    [ LAWRENCE  May 23, 2020 ]
    Yes. It plays DVD's and cd's without internet.

    Does this player have an app that can be downloaded to a phone or tablet that will allow you to control the player over a wi-fi network connection?

    If your cell phone is Apple IOS there is a Panasonic Blu-Ray remote you can download that works with this player. Just go to the AP store and search Panasonic Blu-Ray Remote. Do not know about an Andriod Cell phone but they should have the AP as well. Hope that helps.
    [ LAWRENCE  Apr 21, 2020 ]
    Sorry, I don't know.
    [ JOHN  Apr 21, 2020 ]

    This player is use exclusively for watching 4 k and Blu-ray disc. Picture and sound is of pristine quality. So far my best player for movies. I would suggest you buy a stand alone cd player from Crutchfield also if you want to enjoy your music. Thanks!

    Have not seen the Sirius AP listed in the AP list.
    [ LAWRENCE  Jan 03, 2020 ]
    Did you look in the Manual?
    [ Kevin  Dec 30, 2019 ]
    Not sure. I don't think so, but I'm not using it for streaming at all. Just discs.
    [ Guest  Dec 30, 2019 ]
    I don't know Aaron, I have only used it to play 4K blu ray discs. Sorry.
    [ Michael  Dec 30, 2019 ]

    I don't have any DSD files to try out. I could not tell you at this time.

    I've never used Direct Stream Digital but I did a quick check on the UHD820 specs and it certainly appears that it does pass DSD. Below is a compatibility list. Hope this helps!
