Panasonic MZ2000 TV Review: Picture Quality​

The Panasonic MZ2000 is the successor to the 2022 flagship OLED TV, the MZ2000, and is equipped with a new OLED panel. The new WOLED panel uses Micro Lens Array (MLA) technology, which is designed to build a layer of microlenses in the OLED panel to better focus the light emitted by those organic self-emitting pixels. As a result, the screen can shoot more light, combined with a new multi-layer thermal management system, thereby increasing the brightness of the screen. According to Panasonic, the new panel will increase the peak brightness by 150%. In fact, LG's new 2023 OLED models are using the same panel technology, which you can refer to LG G3 TV Review.
