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. 



Enjoy great web entertainment on your HDTV


Because this model is compatible with the VIERA CAST function, you can access YouTube, Picasa, and other internet sites from the special VIERA CAST screen.  YouTube lets you watch the newest video clips, and Picasa lets you view Web-based photos.  You can also check weather and stock information on other sites.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy and more I just purchased the BD80 and love it. I have had a BD 35, that I slammed into a shelf( on the drive side), and even though it still worked, the vibration was annoying at times and wanted some of the extras the BD 80 provides. The picture is awesome and the sound is the same( awesome). I am on a budget and this unit was on clearance at Best Buy for $ 174!! This was the last one in my area I found and I am glad I made the switch.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from pretty good this product is very good and im happy with it but it seems i have to press the remote 3 to 4 times before it responds even when pressing on the player to eject it still takes time it would have been great if the remote lit up. other than those problems i love the player it shows amazing pictures .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features After customer service told me I need to insert an SD card to use BDLive, it's been great. I didn't like the "ding" sound when browsing VieraCast; but, a downloadeable update let's me turn it off. The kid's love the access to YouTube and Amazon Videos. The picture and sound are spectacular.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Up conversion Champ! I have had numerious Panasonic products going as far back as tha early 70s. This player has allowed me and my family to enjoy our extensive DVD collection. All other players, to include exspensive products just could not make the cut. If you are the type of person who needs a player costing more than $700.00 thats OK, but you are truely missing a GEM in the BD80K. The value and cost that Panasonic works for is clear in this player. Thanks Panasonic
