In situations like the current one, in which we spend more time at home enjoying series, movies and games at home, manufacturers concentrate all their efforts to bring the best image and sound quality to the living rooms.
Following the preview it gave us with the presentation of its flagship JZ2000 in January, Panasonic has just introduced its range of televisions OLED with the JZ1500, JZ1000 and JZ980, as well as the JX940, JX850 and JX800 high-end LED TV which delves into the quality of image and sound.
