The Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA) finalized its Ultra HD Blu-ray specification and released a logo that Ultra HD Blu-ray players and discs will bear.
Licensing of Ultra HD Blu-ray players will begin in July, and “based on timing of past products...you can expect to see products reach the market pretty quickly, particularly given that the holiday buying season will be right around the corner,” a spokesperson told TWICE.
During the International Consumer Electronics Show, Panasonic displayed a UHD Blu-ray player and said it expected to ship the product by the end of the year.
Besides increasing Blu-ray disc resolution to 3840x2160 pixels, the Ultra HD Blu-ray specification also delivers a “significantly expanded color range,” high dynamic range (HDR) video, and high-frame-rate content, the association said. Object-based sound formats are also supported.
