At IFA 2013, Panasonic has unveiled its new 65-inch WT600 Ultra HD TV, which is also the first with HDMI 2.0 that supports 4K in up to 60 Hz. The WT600 has received a THX4K certification.

All of Panasonic’s competitors have launched Ultra HD TVs, but the wait for Panasonic’s move has been worth it, it seems, as Panasonic’s WT600 will incorporate HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.2a from the start. Panasonic calls it future-proof.

The WT600 has a LCD panel with 4K resolution - or 3840x2160 pixels - and can receive 4K in 50 and 60 Hz from a 4K player with HDMI 2.0 or from a PC with DisplayPort. Current Ultra HD TVs only support 4K in up to 30 Hz. Panasonic also boasts a 2000 Hz BLS (back light scanning) system, its new 4K IFC (Intelligent Frame Creation) system that can interpolate 4K content to 120 fps, and its new 4K Hexa processor that takes care of picture processing and upscaling. WT600 has received the THX4K certification for its ability to reproduce accurate colors. It is also ISF and CalMAN certified for its calibration options.

The European version of the TV has a twin tuner that allows users to record two shows simultaneously. Users can even stream TV channels to their iOS and Android devices.

Panasonic’s 65-inch WT600 will be available in stores this October for $5,999 USD. It is named TC-L65WT600 in USA and TX-L65WT600 in Europe.
