Sony to release multiple movie titles on 4k Ultra HD Discs in early 2016

The Ultra Hi-Def 4K picture and advanced studio sound will be more readily available with the release of a number of new releases from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment (SPHE). With estimates of over 100 million 4k Ultra HD capable television sets populating US households by 2019, major motion picture studios are racing to put out new titles in 4k Ultra HD to spur greater home video disc sales. The 4K Ultra HD Discs will feature picture quality that is 4 times the resolution of traditional 1080 HD content and includes the high dynamic range (HDR) for more brilliant highlights, vibrant colors and greater contrast in the images, as well as next generation audio formats for incredible theater quality sound.


SPHE's first 4K Ultra HD releases will include The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Salt, Hancock, Chappie, Pineapple Express, and The Smurfs 2, followed by a growing roster of titles including new release film and television content. Sony Pictures and other studios already have an extensive library of 4K content, including newer films and television shows, as well as classic catalog films restored from original film elements. This will allow the studios to develop additional 4K Ultra HD content with new and old titles rather than resorting to lower resolution quality on older and less popular titles.


Again, this is another example of the relevance and growth in the optical disc arena. For more details about Blu-ray hardware and media or any other products manufactured or supplied by Vinpower Digital, please visit our website or contact an authorized Vinpower representative today.
