Product Description

Panasonic DP-UB9000 UHD Reference-class Blu-ray Player includes HDR10+ and Dolby Vision technology and reproduces Ultra HD Blu-ray, Video on Demand (VOD) and USB content. Powered by a HCX Processor, UB9000 was expertly developed and refined by specialists in the heart of Hollywood.

Regardless of the content, the result is a thrilling home entertainment experience. UB9000 offers a dedicated audio power supply, a high-performance D/A converter, and XLR balanced output.

Taking HDR to the max

UB9000 supports HDR10+ dynamic metadata technology which will offer considerable benefits to viewers through optimising the viewing experience on a scene-by-scene basis. HDR10+ is an open, royalty-free dynamic metadata platform created by 20th Century Fox, Panasonic and Samsung. It also supports Dolby Vision which transforms entertainment experiences by delivering greater brightness and contrast, as well as a fuller palette of rich colours. From content creation to distribution and playback, Dolby Vision delivers a consistent and spectacular experience across a range of content and devices.

High-Quality Pictures

The 4K engine powering the line-up is Panasonic’s proprietary HCX Processor for Ultra HD Blu-ray. This has been improved by applying unique Chroma and gradation processing to the video technologies. The HCX Processor reproduces Ultra HD Blu-ray and streamed 4K video images with stunningly precise colours and optimal brightness.

Precise Chroma Processing

The colour information in 4K source component signals compressed by formats such as Ultra HD Blu-ray is thinned to 4:2:0, or about 1/4 the original amount. To match the 4:4:4 requirement of a television display, Chroma up-sampling is performed by the Ultra HD Blu-ray Player. The ‘multi-tap process’ compares the number of pixels in addition to those in the upper/lower/left/right positions to create optimal pixels.

By increasing the accuracy of the multi-tap process to interpolate the decoded 4K (4:2:0) signals of Ultra HD Blu-ray content to 4K (4:4:4), Panasonic delivers beautiful, natural pictures with life-like depth and vivid colours. The UB9000 series have an original 4K Direct Chroma Up-scaling feature that up-converts Full HD to 4K resolution for displaying beautiful colours.

Optimum HDR Processing

With more and more HDR content available on disc and via streaming services, the optimal reproduction of HDR content has become essential. In addition to having a wide range of contrast, images from Ultra HD Blu-ray players must be reproduced with fine detail in both dark and bright areas. To achieve this, the new players use Panasonic’s three unique HDR processing technologies.

HDR Optimiser

HDR-compatible TVs use tone-mapping to match the brightness range of images according to the static metadata within the content, but optimal results are sometimes not possible due to the limitations of the specific TV model. By conducting the tone-mapping on the player, a stable HDR picture quality is delivered regardless of the TV. Panasonic's original image processing technologies achieve HDR images with higher definition while tone-mapping is used to adjust the brightness level of the content. Even HDR images from ordinary HDR10 and TV footage provide optimal playback.

HDR Adjustment

HDR adjustment reproduces dark and bright areas with high fidelity regardless of the viewing environment. Dark scenes in HDR images are sometimes difficult to see when viewed in a bright room and may require brightness adjustment. As HDR signals are inherently different from SDR signals, existing adjustment functions are insufficient. UB9000 uses an original technology to optimise HDR video signals enabling brightness adjustment of the HDR images. An HDR Setting button on the remote control allows the user to simply select the optimal setting for the viewing environment.

HDR to SDR Conversion

Dynamic Range Conversion reproduces images with greater brightness and beauty than ordinary Blu-ray Disc images when played on a non-HDR TV with standard dynamic range (SDR-TV). This feature maximises the image expression that is inherent to Ultra HD Blu-ray.

Dedicated Power Supply

The use of a positive/negative, isolated power conversion circuit for audio provides a high dynamic range and reduces the voltage fluctuations and noise caused by digital circuits. In addition to this, high-quality audio grade electrolytic capacitors and a newly developed OFC (Oxygen Free Copper) switching transformer decreases the impedance of power.

Isolated DC Regulator Circuit

The digital and analogue power supplies for the D/A converter are isolated. The analogue channel is further separated into 2 channels and 7.1 channels, and for the 2-channel output, the reference voltage of the left and right channels is isolated, making a 10-line regulator circuit and reducing mutual effects to improve distortion. Moreover, high-quality audio grade electrolytic capacitors are used in the analogue channel to minimise noise.

Analogue Audio Circuit

A high-performance D/A converter with input compatibility, high signal to noise ratio and a high dynamic range is provided for each of the 2 channel and 7.1 channel circuits. Special Circuit Board for 2 channel and 7.1 channel analogue output are mounted onto special glass-epoxy circuit boards.

Together with the use of quality components, such as low-noise operational amplifiers and audio grade electrolytic capacitors, a totally balanced signal transmission is achieved by using differential circuits all the way from the D/A converter output to the XLR output terminal. The 2 channel and 7.1 channel output terminals are also separated. Moreover, the 2 channel output is equipped with a balanced XLR output terminal in addition to the RCA terminal.

High Rigidity Chassis

A newly-developed drive base with a 3-dimensional, thick steel plate fixes the optical disc drive to the centre of the 2-layer chassis to reduce vibration and noise during disc rotation. The use of a 2-layer structure with a heavy steel plate for the chassis achieves a low centre of gravity and low vibration. Thick aluminium is used on the front and side panels. This raises the rigidity of the chassis and reduces vibration.

7.1-Channel Audio

The UB9000 supports analogue 7.1 channel audio for direct connection to a home theatre system for lifelike surround sound. In addition, the UB9000 terminal is gold-plated to resist oxidisation and maintain high signal conductivity.

Twin HDMI Pure AV

The new Panasonic Ultra HD Blu-ray players are designed for high-resolution audio reproduction. In addition to conventional WAV/FLAC/MP3/AAC/WMA formats, DSD (11.2MHz/5.6 MHz/2.8 MHz) ALAC and AIFF music files can also be reproduced. Simply connect to a home audio system to enjoy music sources equivalent to studio master sound quality.

Controlled via Voice

Panasonic's UB9000 supports voice control from Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. By simply speaking to them, a variety of operations, such as fast forward and pause, can be carried out by voice without having to use the remote control.

4K VOD Compatible

The new Panasonic Ultra HD Blu-ray players support 4K VOD (Video on Demand) services, offering a paramount video viewing experience for those who demand uncompromised quality in picture and sound when watching streamed content.

Stylish Design

All of this advanced technology is packed inside a stylish body emanating a high-quality presence. The aluminium on the front and side panels of the UB9000 enhances sound quality while adding a touch of luxury to the design that ideally suits a reference model.
