Finally, we have caught first glimpse of an actual 4K Blu-ray player, courtesy of Panasonic’s press event at CES 2015.
We had almost given up hope earlier in the year but the confirmation of a 4K Blu-ray standard paved the way for this ‘World’s First’ announcement by the Japanese manufacturer.

The prototype player supports the latest technologies, which are expected to be adopted in the next generation Blu-ray Disc standards.

This prototype integrates video processing and optical disc drive technologies that Panasonic has refined over many years, making it capable of reproducing 4K (3,840 x 2,160 pixel), 60p, 10-bit high resolution video, and supporting the latest technologies such as High Dynamic Range that marks a major leap in the brightness peak from the previous 100 nit3 to 1,000-10,000 nit to improve the power of expression; wide colour gamut standard BT.2020[4], which greatly increases colour reproduction; high-efficiency video compression technology HEVC (H.265)/ Blu-ray Disc playback at a high bit rate of 100Mbps.

This marks a major advance in picture quality over current Blu-ray Disc players, and paves the way towards allowing consumers to enjoy the crisp, true-to-life quality of amazing 4K Ultra HD content in their own homes.

Panasonic will also participate in the newly-formed UHD Alliance to contribute to the progress of whole 4K (UHD) industry.

We'll try and get some more details when we visit the Panasonic stand.
