Panasonic to Support Eurofins Digital Testing’s 4K HDR Ultra HD Certification and Logo

Eurofins Digital Testing has announced that Panasonic will use Eurofins’ 4K HDR Ultra HD logo on its latest range of TVs.

Eurofins Digital Testing’s certification and logo scheme identify TVs that have been fully tested and proven to receive and display High Dynamic Range (HDR), Ultra-High Definition (UHD) and wide color gamut (WCG) content simultaneously, from broadcast and broadband sources, as well as HDMI.

Eurofins Digital Testing’s logo ensures that HDR UHD screens are easily recognizable in the marketplace, and is the only logo covering broadcast and broadband inputs available today. The logo will be visible on applicable 2018 models of Panasonic TVs and will be included on its future models that feature a 4K HDR UHD display.

“Panasonic is committed to creating exceptional 4K HDR UHD TVs, and this certification logo demonstrates our ability to reach the highest levels of performance and quality,” said Yasushi Murayama, director of TV Europe for Panasonic.

“Panasonic TVs are renowned for exceptional quality, design, and performance,” said Johan Craeybeckx, business line director at Eurofins Digital Testing International. “Achieving this certification and using Eurofins 4K HDR Ultra HD logo is a seal of product excellence, and will make it easier for consumers to instantly recognize the superior quality of the TV they are about to purchase from Panasonic.”

Eurofins Digital Testing’s 4K HDR Ultra HD logo scheme certifies that all qualifying equipment successfully delivers the extended contrast range and colors essential for HDR and WCG, as well as ensuring that the full potential of UHD is met, which offers up to four times the clarity of existing HD services. HDR brings a new dimension to content with vivid, true to life colors, darker blacks and brighter whites.

Eurofins Digital Testing’s 4K HDR Ultra HD logo addresses the need for broadcasters to easily reference compliant equipment to their audience. In addition to Panasonic, Hisense and LG Electronics use Eurofins Digital Testing’s 4K HDR Ultra HD logo for their products.

At the upcoming IBC Show in Amsterdam, September 13-18, Eurofins Digital Testing will be located on the show floor in Hall 5, stand B45. Eurofins will demonstrate its 4K HDR Ultra HD logo; TestWizard automation framework for set-top boxes and third-screen devices, as well as Smart Home interoperability testing for home automation and IoT products; a range of cybersecurity testing services; conformance testing for ATSC 3.0 standards; and more.
