PHL Reference Chroma Processor Plus

Faithful and sharp color reproduction


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


Through the Panasonic Hollywood Laboratory, Panasonic has collaborated with Hollywood filmmakers for more than 15 years to accumulate the know-how and expertise that are needed to achieve faithful color reproduction between original movie footage and Blu-ray media.  The image playback technologies that have been gained from this know-how and expertise are fully reflected in all Panasonic Blu-ray Disc products. This allows Panasonic to bring outstanding images that approach original cinema quality right into your living room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great BD Player I bought this Blu-ray player after doing some research on the Internet. I was very pleased with the ease of set up and use. The Blu-ray disks play beautifully with no problems, and my regular DVDs have never looked as good. I am also pleased that the start up time is fast. If you're looking for a good quality BD player that's easy to set up and use and performs beautifully, this is the one. January 17, 2010
