Panasonic's DMP-UB900 Ultra HD Blu-ray player will be arriving in stores this week at a suggested price of £599 with Mad Max: Fury Road and San Andreas UHD Blu-ray discs included.The new player is not only certified by THX but is also certified Ultra HD Premium by the UHD Alliance, after the organisation expanded its certification programme to include Ultra HD Blu-ray players. The new player now joins Panasonic's flagship DX902 Ultra HD TV in being Ultra HD Premium certified. Ultra HD Blu-ray is the next-generation video disc standard that not only delivers high-quality 4K-resolution pictures but also supports HDR (High Dynamic Range) and the BT.2020 wide colour gamut
The UB900 features a new 4K High-Precision Chroma Processor equipped with imaging technologies such as chroma processing and high gradation processing that have been developed by the Panasonic Hollywood Laboratory (PHL) Blu-ray R&D facility. By taking full advantage of the massive amount of Ultra HD Blu-ray data, the UB900 reproduces video images on a home TV that look exactly as their creators intended them to look
UB900 also offers a no compromise approach where sound quality is concerned, using hi-fi-quality components, separating out the video and audio handling, and supporting high-resolution audio formats such as DSD and ALAC on top of the more typical WAV/FLAC/MP3/AAC/WMA formats.
