Los Angeles – 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, I think 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.
Besides increasing Blu-ray disc resolution to 3840×2160 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.
An optional “digital bridge” feature will enable consumers to view the content of purchased discs across a range of in-home and mobile devices.
The specification also requires Ultra HD Blu-ray players to play back current FullHD Blu-ray Discs.
