Panasonic Blu-ray Players

With a movie night at home, you can bring Hollywood hits onto your TV screen. A Panasonic Blu-ray player allows you to play your favorite flicks in high definition. High definition offers more clarity than regular playback.

How are Blu-ray and DVD players different?

DVD players and Panasonic Blu-ray players share many similarities, including the size of the discs that they can accept. However, these two types of players differ in the resolution that they can process.

Here is a comparison of the resolution capabilities:

  • DVD: These play discs that encode information in resolutions up to 480p. This is considered standard definition. These units can also play CDs.
  • Blu-ray: These play discs that encode information in resolutions up to 1080p. This is considered high definition. These units can also play standard DVDs and CDs.
What is an Ultra HD Blu-ray player?

This type of unit offers a resolution that is four times that of a standard Blu-ray player. Panasonic Ultra HD players are recommended for use with 4K TVs, which have the built-in technology to display the picture clarity produced by Ultra HD Blu-ray.

Features of these players include:

  • 4K resolution: With this resolution, pictures can be displayed in 3840 pixels by 2160 pixels.
  • High dynamic range: HDR is a feature that helps bring out the contrast between the light and dark areas of a picture.
  • Versatility: These units play 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray discs and all of the other types of discs that a standard Blu-ray player can handle.
  • Streaming capabilities: Many of these units can connect to the internet and to streaming services for videos and shows.
Do the Blu-ray player and television brands have to match?

No, you can use a Panasonic Blu-ray player if your TV is a different brand. Across brands, these components are compatible with one another.

However, there are some advantages to purchasing one brand for all your television components, including your disc player, TV, and receiver. If they are all the same brand, you can often set up your system so that turning on one component automatically readies the others for use. You may also find that your remote works to control multiple Panasonic devices.

What cables are used with a Blu-ray player?

Television system components use cables to communicate with one another. To watch a Blu-ray video, you need video cables, audio cables, and you may want an internet cable.

Here is an explanation of the different types of cables:

  • Video: An HDMI cable can transmit the full resolution of a disc to your TV. A component cable is an alternative option; however, it is not capable of producing full resolution. For 3D players, use high-speed HDMI cables.
  • Audio: Check the connectors. If your receiver has HDMI inputs, then that is the type of cable you should use to hook up the audio. If not, you can use coaxial or optical cables.
  • Internet: With CAT-5 or CAT-6 cable, you can connect from the units Ethernet port to your home network that links to the Internet.
