Panasonic brings 4K Ultra High Definition Blu-Ray player to Australia this September
Panasonic will bring its first 4K Ultra High Definition (UHD) Blu-Ray player – the DMP-UB900 – to Australia this September. In addition to supporting UHD Blu-Ray discs, the DMP-UB900 will also play high definition Blu-Ray, DVDs, and CDs.
UHD Blu-Ray discs will be available in capacities of up to 100GB – double that of existing Blu-Ray standard. In addition to supporting higher resolution video at frame rates of up to 60fps, the new standard allows support for 10-bit colour and high dynamic range (HDR) content. However, users will need a HDR compatible TV to see the benefit of these.
The DMP-UB900 isn't just about picture quality; Panasonic says audio is just as important when it comes to 4K UHD Blu-Ray. As such, the player has a twin HDMI setup that separates picture and sound, analogue 7.1 connections, and support for high resolution audio formats including DSD, ALAC, FLAC and WAV.
