Panasonic launches new flagship HZ2000 OLED TV for 2020

31 Jul 2020 | Rasmus Larsen |

The successor to last year's GZ2000, which received our Reference Award, has arrived. HZ2000 features the 2020 OLED panel with improved BFI, Filmmaker Mode, improved sound, and more.

HZ2000 replaces GZ2000

Last year's GZ2000 was the first TV to use a customized version of LG.Display's standard OLED panel, which is used in all OLED TVs on the market today. This panel has higher average and peak brightness (up to 1000 nits) and we gave it our Reference Award. Here comes the successor in the form of HZ2000. On top of improved brightness capabilities, the OLED panel features the improved BFI (Black Frame Insertion) system of the 2020 OLED panel.

In addition, Panasonic says that HZ2000 offers an improved 3.0.2-channel speaker system for Dolby Atmos as well as HDMI eARC. It also comes with Filmmaker Mode and Dolby Vision IQ – like HZ1000 that we recently reviewed.

There are still no plans to provide software updates for MyHomeScreen after purchase. On the other hand Panasonic is not yet ready to move to HDMI 2.1, which means that HZ2000 may not be an ideal partner for next-generation game consoles and video players. LG, Samsung and Sony have all begun the transition to HDMI 2.1 in high-end 4K TVs. Panasonic HZ2000 is available now in Europe in 55 and 65 inch sizes starting at £3300 / €2900. Further details can be found in the table below.
