Ultra HD Blu-ray is almost here. The Blu-ray Disc Association announced that it will begin licensing the format on August 24.
As a BDA contributing member, Videon has helped define the UHD format specifications, and we’re happy to hear that they’ll be applied soon. The shift from HD to 4K UHD has been happening gradually over the past few years. Displays have been available for a while, but content has been slow to catch up.
With this Ultra HD Blu-ray announcement, expect the pace of change to accelerate significantly. Content will be available soon, consumer players will start to be released, and the upgrade cycle will continue.
