Ultra hd movies soon on blu-ray

4k blu-ray standards identified
The Blu-Ray Disc Association (BDA) has put together a more or less conclusive agreement on a batch of standards for the next generation of their once very popular Blu-ray discs. The new 4K Blu-ray versions of these discs have been in the making since at least the middle of last year and are expected to be released towards the middle or end of 2015. According to the BDA, the association will support three different High Dynamic Range technologies in its new 4K Blu-ray discs. These include specs from both Dolby Vision, the HDR system that is being offered by Philips and a joint HDR standard that comes from Technicolor and is part of the MPEG/SMPTE proposals of the company. Also important is the fact that the new Blu-ray 4K disc specifications fit in with the “Recommendation 2020” protocol that includes proposals for the much wider colour gamut and “better pixels” that is being promised for ultra HD.
