    Format Licensing on Schedule to Commence Summer 2015

    LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA) today announced completion of the Ultra HD Blu-ray specification and released the new logo that will delineate Ultra HD Blu-ray products. The Ultra HD Blu-ray specification, which represents the work of global leaders from the consumer electronics, IT and content creation industries, will enable delivery of Ultra HD content via Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc to the rapidly growing number of UHD TV households.

    “For years, Blu-ray Dischas set the standard for high definition picture and audio quality in the home. Ultra HD Blu-ray will do the same for UHD home entertainment," said Victor Matsuda, chair, BDA Promotions Committee. “The technical capabilities of Blu-ray Disc, in particular its significant storage capacity and high data transfer rates, will enable the delivery of an unparalleled, consistent and repeatable UHD experience."

    The completed Ultra HD Blu-ray specification addresses a range of factors, beyond simply increasing resolution, that will significantly enhance the home entertainment experience for consumers. In addition to delivering content in up-to 3840x2160 resolution, the Ultra HD Blu-ray format enables delivery of a significantly expanded color range and allows for the delivery of high dynamic range (HDR) and high frame rate content. Next-generation immersive, object-based sound formats will also be delivered via the Ultra HD Blu-ray specification. Additionally, with the optional digital bridge feature, the specification enhances the value of content ownership by embracing the notion that a content purchase can enable the consumer to view their content across the range of in-home and mobile devices.

    The specification also mandates all new Ultra HD Blu-ray players be capable of playing back current Blu-ray Discs, giving consumers access to the vast library of more than 10,000 titles currently available on Blu-ray Disc.

    Licensing of Ultra HD Blu-ray is scheduled to begin this Summer. The BDA is working closely with industry leaders in the authoring, testing, certification and replication industries to develop the tools and process needed to ensure interoperability between players and software and to facilitate the development of a robust ecosystem to support the hardware and title launch of Ultra HD Blu-ray.

    Nice !! Always liked this kind of technology, but means needing new TV,Blu-Ray Player, PC monitor and Blu-Ray Writer to take advantage of this all. In lines of new 8K and 4K.

    Depends on how large your screen is, and how far you sit from it. Because what ever the definition the pixel amount stay's the same as the screen gets bigger, for example a 32´ HDTV has 1920 pixels x 1080 pixels is 2073600 pixels, or 2.0736 megapixels , but so does a 60` HDTV. The question of do you need it, everyone must answer for them selves for example 3D CAD user or a Graphic Designer. In my case, no.

    I'm using a LG 32LD350 a 32" HDTV from 2010 set to 1080p and it's great.
    These days a home user can buy a small HDTV cheap and hook it up HDMI and your off and running. So you really don't need an extra monitor.

    Makes me think, i have another Samsung 32" HDTV LED i can use instead of my ASUS 24" Monitor being bigger. You mean using one for both, TV and PC.
