Main Features

Filmmaker’s Vision

Faithful, Sharp Colour Reproduction
PHL Reference Chroma Processor Plus
PHL Reference Chroma Processor Plus is a high quality image-processing technology developed by Panasonic to precisely process each pixel of the Blu-ray DiscTM video signal in the vertical direction. It reproduces colour data with twice the accuracy of conventional systems to keep colors faithful and sharp.

Ultimate Colour Reproduction with the VIERA PZ800 Series
High Precision 4:4:4
Panasonic's newly developed high-precision 4:4:4 signal technology also processes each pixel of the Blu-ray DiscTM video signal in the horizontal direction, to complement vertical direction processing. When viewed on a VIERA PZ800 Series TV, which features 4:4:4 signal compatibility, it recreates images with the original film quality to further enhance cinema enjoyment.

Advanced Picture Processing for 1080p
P4HD Pixel Precision Progressive Processing for HD
P4HD processes more than 15 billion pixels per second and applies the optimal processing to every pixel. So that it can render progressive images superbly, expresses motion smoothly, and draws crisp diagonal lines.

Precise Pixel Generation
Draws on 60 pixels of information to generate 1 pixel.

16-Level Motion Detection
Categorizes the image motion of each pixel into one of 16 levels.

Diagonal Processing
Quickly detects diagonals and applies correction to the pixels accordingly.

3:2/2:2 Pull-Down
The system detects whether the Blu-ray DiscTM or DVD signal contains video content or a cinema. In the case of a cinema, the signal is converted from 24p to 60p for TV screen display.

1080p-Up Conversion
Up-converts content recorded in the 576i/p, 720p format to 1080p.

The Same Reproduction System as Cinema
1080/24p Playback
The DMP-BD35/55 provides 1080/24p output. It reproduces cinema images from a Blu-ray DiscTM and DVD in their original 24p form with no need for conversion. You can enjoy a cinema images in the same format used in cinema with 1080/24p compatible TV.
Tonal expression Achieves Original Film Quality
Deep Colour
The DMP-BD35/BD55 is Deep Colour ready, which means they can reproduce images with 12-bit, 4,096-step gradation. You enjoy exceptionally rich, natural-looking colors, with smooth, detailed gradation and minimal colour banding.
*The TV must also be Deep Color compatible. Other TVs will display 8-bit, 256-step gradation

More Natural Colour Reproduction
The DMP-BD35/55 supports "x.v.Color", which features a colour expression range that is about 1.2 times the conventional sRGB colour range. When connected to a TV that supports "x.v.Color", the DMP-BD35/55 can render colors more naturally and with enhanced depth.
This function is effective only when reproducing AVCHD data recorded with "x.v.Color * "x.v.Color’’ and x.v.Color logo are trademarks

HD Networking
Entertainment Offered Only with Blu-ray DiscsTM
BD-Live* lets users access to the Internet to download data such as images and subtitles, and to join in quizzes and multi-player interactive games that are linked to bonus cinema content contained on Blu-ray DiscsTM.
*BD-ROM Profile 2
*Actual functions vary depending on the Blu-ray DiscTM media.

BONUSVIEW* lets users view Picture-in-Picture (which displays a second image in a sub-window) and Audio Mixing (which lets you switch the sound between the main and sub-windows) while a cinema is playing.
*BD-ROM Profile 1 Ver.1.1
*Actual functions vary depending on the Blu-ray DiscTM media.

Instant Viewing of Recorded Movies and Photos
Linking with an HD Camcorder
The DMP-BD35/55 can play back AVCHD-format images shot with an HD camcorder, such as the Panasonic HDC-SD100. Images recorded onto the camcorder's SD Memory Card are output directly from their HDMI terminals in their original, high-quality 1920 x 1080 resolution

Linking with a Digital Camera
The DMP-BD35/55 can play back JPEG still images on an SD Memory Card, such as those recorded with a Lumix digital camera. They can output the images to 1920 x 1080 resolution – ideal for a Full-HD TV – and output them via the HDMI terminal* Using the Slideshow playback feature, you can play a music CD at the same time you're showing the photos, so viewers enjoy both beautiful images and your favourite music.
*JPEG and other still image sources converted to 1920 x 1080 resolution, while of high quality, will exhibit somewhat lower subjective image resolution than true, native 1080p Full-HD sources.

Easy Linked Operation with a Single Remote Control
VIERA Link – Seamless GUI
Simply press the VIERA Link button on the VIERA’s remote control and select "Player" on the VIERA Link Menu screen. The Blu-ray Disc™ player's menu will display on the TV screen, and you can begin playback of a Blu-ray discTM or select from the Blu-ray discTM menu

Authentic Sound

Compatible with All New Audio Codecs of Blu-ray DiscTM
HD Audio Decoding and HDMI Out
The DMP-BD35/55 can decode HD Audio (Dolby® TrueHD, Dolby® Digital Plus and DTSTM-HD) and output 7.1ch digital audio signal. The resulting audio is studio master quality sound. This signal can also be connected to an HDMI compatible receiver that does not support HD Audio Codec.

Smooth, Heart-Warming Surround Sound
7.1ch Analogue Out (DMP-BD55 Only)
The 7.1-channel analogue signal converted by the new 192kHz D/A converter is transmitted in high quality. This signal can be connected to a receiver that does not support HDMI.

Reproduction of Dynamic Sound Ambience
96kHz Surround Re-master
The DMP-BD35/55 performs 96kHz sampling and re-mastering of 48kHz lossless audio signals as well as sound signals with data that is lost due to compression. This increases the sound information and adds a dynamic, life-like sound ambience to the cinema reproduction.
*CD sampling is done at 88.2 kHz.

An Audio Design with Uncompromising Quality
High Quality Sound Parts of the DMP-BD55
The DMP-BD55 maximizes the high-quality sound performance of the Blu-ray DiscTM to enhance living room viewing enjoyment with beautiful, true-to-life sound.
New 192KHz/24bit Audio DAC
The digital noise is reduced and analogue interference of the clock noise is prevented.

Electrolytic Capacitor
Polyolefin sleeve and OFC lead to sharp and crisp audio.

Copper Foil Film Capacitor
Low impedance for high-quality sound

Ultra-Low-Impedance Electrolytic Capacitor
OFC lead for powerful bass and a high S/N ratio.

World's First* Single-Chip Signal Processing LSI
Advanced micro-processing has enabled Panasonic to fit the world's first signal processing circuit onto a single LSI chip. This single LSI chip for Blu-ray DiscTM Player enables high quality image and sound reproduction, a slim design, and lower power consumption.
