CES 2015: Blu-ray goes 4K

January 7, 2015

Panasonic introduces a prototype 4K Blu-ray player at CES.

At this year’s CES, Panasonic has introduced the first Blu-ray player that supports the next standard in home video technology, Ultra HD Blu-ray. The player is capable of playing native 4K content (3840 x 2160) at 60 fps.

Additionally, this Panasonic 4K Blu-ray player also adds support for High Dynamic Range on the discs it will be paying, ensuring the best possible picture quality. While 4K Blu-ray specifications are still being finalized, it seems that next-generation home movies will come in 4K discs soon.

Of course, owning a 4K Blu-ray player is just the first step. You still need to purchase a compatible receiver and of course, a 4K TV that will support playback of such media.
