Arrow Panasonic To Release UHD-BD Player This Year




No price or availability has been announced yet. It should be in the $500 to $600 range. IMO - March/April will be the time frame.

The unit they released in Japan for $3,300 is nothing like the one the USA will get. It has a SAT receiver in it along with a very large hard drive for storing SAT programming.

SPECS:

Pansonic's DMP-UB900 will offer playback for Ultra HD Blu-ray discs along with HDR (high dynamic range) and BT.2020 wide color gamut support. In addition, the player features a new 4K High-Precision Chroma Processor which uses "an original high-accuracy multi-tap process to interpolate the decoded 4K (4:2:0) signals of Ultra HD Blu-ray content to 4K (4:4:4)." Likewise, THX certification, Wi-Fi, DLNA, Full HD Blu-ray 3D disc playback, and support for various apps and video services will be included as well. Finally, the player also features twin HDMI & 7.1-channel analogue audio outputs, and high quality audio parts with high-res audio support (including WAV/FLAC/MP3/AAC/WMA formats, DSD and ALAC).

I'm so excited to say.... Panasonic has selected us as a launch partner for USA of their DMP-UB900 4K BD player! If all goes as planned we'll be shipping this July.

Our pre-order promo is $699 delivered.

The payer will stream DV and it's Hi-res audio decoding ready for all formats and features a nice jack pack of audio outputs, like, digital coax, digital optical, analog stereo and 7.1 discrete analog audio outs.

Panasonic is also supplying the first mass production DMP-UB900s for our June 21 - 22 2016 TV Shootout event!

$699? That seems a bit steep with the Samsung and soon to be released Phillips players at $399.

Samsung Ultra HD Blu-ray Player Earns UHD Alliance Premium Certification

Quote:
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., the leader in home entertainment, today announced that its first Ultra HD Blu-ray player, the UBD-K8500, has been awarded UHD Premium Certification by the UHD Alliance (UHDA). The new certification, introduced in April 2016, is granted to Ultra HD Blu-ray players that comply with rigorous performance standards for resolution, high dynamic range (HDR), peak luminance, black levels and wide color gamut among other key metrics.

So for $300 more - what can the Panasonic player do that the Samsung can't?

I'll just list the features only and not operation, design or build differences. Here's the list of Panasonic's DMP-UB900 features that are exclusive to their player and differentiate them:

-- Additional outputs that are only on Panasonic's DMP-UB900
..... - Digital Coax
..... - Analog audio
..... - 7.1 discrete analog audio

-- Premium built-in audio DAC
..... - Decodes all Hi-res audio formats

-- Oversized dampening feet

-- THX certified

-- Full sized heavy duty power cord

-- Full sized remote control
... - Fully backlit
... - Numeric keypad
... - Dedicated Netflix launch button along with many other useful discrete apps and functions
... - Tons or addressable discrete codes. My favorite is the very important codes for "On" and "Off"

This is the list of feature differences, other differences can be discussed further.

-Robert

So the Panasonic player will only decode HDR10 High Dynamic Range? No Dolby Vision?

Correct, ^^ no BD player will decode Dolby Vision.

At this time Dolby Vision is only available through streaming and that's always done directly to a 4K Dolby Vision capable TV.

Also only LG's 2016 Super UHD and 4K OLED TV along with some Vizio TVs can decode Dolby Vision, also note that Vizio can only decode Dolby Vision and cannot play SMPTE's HDR10 HDR.
