This year there appear three new operating systems on TVs. Google does with Android TV, which among other things will run on smart TVs from Sony and Philips, Samsung’s new smart models run from this year on Tizen and Panasonic teamed up with Mozilla that Firefox OS to the new models of the Japanese brand has been. At CES earlier this year we saw a sneak preview of the new operating system, but because it was still in development, we were allowed to play with it yet. Meanwhile, the first Panasonic TVs with Firefox OS available and it is time for a review.

We watched Firefox OS on the 55 “variant of the CX700, which is available at the time of writing for about 1,500 euros in the Pricewatch. This model can also be obtained in the sizes 40, 50 and 65 inches, which is 850, respectively , 1200 and 2500 euro must muster. It is a UHDTV and so has the image panel resolution of 3840×2160 pixels. Besides the usual smart functionality, such as apps, media player and the ability to connect a hard drive for recording, this TV has also an SD card reader, which allows you for example photos from your camera can watch directly on your TV.

According to Panasonic, this TV has a Super Bright Panel with a Brilliant Contrast and Colour Studio Master, and that sounds promising. Whether this TV does have a super high brightness with a brilliant contrast and good color rendering we see in this review on the basis of measurements. Fixefox OS is fully open standards, and that is certainly very useful for developers who want to bring apps to the Panasonic televisions, but what brand you’re there as a user of this TV?
