Panasonic brings release of its 4K Ultra HD player forward and unveils pricing


Panasonic has brought the release of its first 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player – the DMP-UB900 – forward and it’s also throwing in a couple of 4K movies to kick off your ultra high definition collection.

Originally due to hit stores in September, the DMP-UB900 will now be available from this month from major retailers.

The Panasonic 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player will be priced at $1,099.

Inside the box, as a special bonus, will be the Village Roadshow 4K titles Creed and Mad Max: Fury Road.

The DMP-UB900 has a new 4K-ready engine – the 4K High Precision Chroma Processor – which does the work of delivering life-like ultra high definition pictures with vivid, natural colours.

Also onboard will be the 4K Direct Chroma Upscaling feature so you can also enjoy near 4K quality from your full high definition content as well.

The device is also officially certified as Ultra HD Premium and meets the standards required to deliver high quality 4K HDR (high dynamic range) content.

It is also THX certified and reproduces the colour, detail and lifelike premium sound so viewers can enjoy the same quality seen at a commercial cinema in their home.

Samsung released its 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player earlier this year. It is priced at $399.
