Ultra HD Blu-ray – Who wants movies on discs?




Ultra High-definition televisions have now been three years for sale and if you walk into a TV store today and you look at the larger sizes, there are almost no high-definition models to be found. Sales of UHDTV’s has quadrupled in the last year and thanks to the increasing supply and decreasing prices, growth in sales numbers will continue to persevere. If you belong to the early adopters and already a while in possession of a UHDTV, you’ve looked mostly to scaled images in recent times, as associate professor imagery is still not widely available.

Ultra HD Blu-ray

Until now, Netflix is ​​the leading provider of uhd content, but the number of films that are available on this video service associate professor, is still very low and moreover, the bit rate is rather on the low side, the image quality a lot better can. The main reason why Netflix used the lowest possible bitrate is simple; More bandwidth means higher costs and thus is used only 15,6Mbit / s for uhd material. By comparison, a blu-ray is up to 40Mbit / s available, while there are four times fewer pixels have to be coded. The associate professor of materials used HEVC to allow codec is twice as efficient as conventional AVC on blu-ray, but it is still quite a bit rate on the low side.

For the owners of a UHDTV who want the best of the best, there is finally an alternative to Netflix in the form of the new ultra high definition Blu-ray format. From early April are the first players and discs in the store. We received Panasonic’s first player available in the Netherlands: the DMP-UB900. See on this basis that the new format has to offer. We also examine whether the picture quality really is so much better than we were used to date.
