4K Ultra HD Blu-ray movies allow today's 4K TVs to reach their top picture potential because the content doesn't have to be compressed for the Web. Plus, you can watch 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Discs in stunning quality on select gaming consoles.
Since they don't rely on a streaming network, 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray movies allow today's 4K Ultra HD TVs to reach their top picture potential. They support amazing resolutions up to 3840 x 2160. Plus, most come with a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc, a standard Blu-ray Disc and a digital copy of the movie, to help you future-proof your collection. And, the HDR technology built into 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray delivers more shades of light and dark to make it seem less like looking at a screen and more like looking out a window.
Blu-Ray Player Perks of Upgrading your Media Player
Vivid Colors & Crisp Contrast: The Ultra HD Blu-ray reveals more colors than you've ever seen on screen before. Offering more than twice the color range of current digital Blu-ray and 64 times higher color expressions, Ultra HD Blu-ray can display over 75% of the visible color spectrum.
High Dynamic Range: HDR allows for a greater range of color contrast and brightness, enhancing details from the original film format. This allows for a display of both the brightest bright colors and the darkest dark colors on the screen at the same time, as well as a wider range of shades in between, all creating a picture that resembles more closely what you would see with the naked eye.
Content Upscaling: The UHD Upscaling feature automatically refines all your low-definition content to near UHD, giving you a crystal clear picture at four times the resolution of Full HD. Now you can watch all your favorite movies as if you are in the middle of the scene.
Built In WiFi: Watch 4K movies and shows from your favorite streaming services. Turn any TV into the ultimate home entertainment hub by streaming your favorite Web and TV content, including games, movies, smart apps, and videos.
