Posted by at 1:35 pm on August 6, 2015



The Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA) will commence licensing the Ultra HD Blu-ray format starting August 24. The format provides expanded color range, high frame rate up to 60fps and up-to 3840×2160 resolution. Product announcements are expected for the 2015 holiday season.


Single layer Blu-ray Disc can hold up to 25GB of data and dual-layer discs up to 50GB of data. New Ultra HD Blu-ray discs hold up to 66GB and 100GB of data on dual and triple layer discs respectively. With the optional “digital bridge” feature, the specification enables the consumer to view purchased content through streaming across a wide range of in-home and mobile devices.

Ultra HD Blu-ray players will be required to play back current HD Blu-ray Discs. This requirement, coupled with the upscaling capabilities of players and TVs, gives consumers access to the library of more than 10,000 titles currently available on Blu-ray Disc
