Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!

Much was discussed over the past couple of days in the UHD conference at CE Week in NY. There is definitely a push for everything you discussed. How much will come to pass remains to be seen, but it won't be long before the answer is revealed.

I thought there wasn't supposed to be a 4K physical media biggrin.gif I think all involved have been rethinking this and the only true way to showcase UHD and get their product to the masses is with BD. The only other way to get media out to the masses would have been streaming and they can barely get 1080 done right. I also believe they had no idea how attached to our shiny discs many of us are, plus lets face it most people are not as advanced technically as AVS and other sites members. Many don't even have their HT setups connected to the internet. No one is going to order movies on a USB stick or order a hard drive full of movies, at least not enough people for them to turn a profit.

I believe what was said early on was that Blu-Ray will be the last physical media standard. Technically, this new 4K disc will still be Blu-Ray, and not a wholly new standard.

Though I am an employee of Magnolia Home Theater, the views and opinions I express on this forum are those of my own and not my employer.

No, many had said there wouldn't be a 4K physical media, maybe not on this thread but others. If it's the last physical media time will tell. It's not a totally new standard, that said your current blu ray player won't be able to read one, if and when they come out biggrin.gif

This is true sir. The players will play standard Blu-Ray though, so at least we won't have to worry about that.

First 4k bluray comes out some time in 2014 using the rec2020 color space (ie 75% of the total color gamut) and greater bit depth. Then there will be 8k bluray, presumably using 100% of the color space, which will appear 6-10 years later. IMO smile.gif
