VHS gave way to DVD, and DVD gave way (kind of) to Blu-Ray, and while we’re not calling this the death-blow to the current high-end format for movie watching, it is the next step in crystal clear visuals for movie lovers, should they want to head in that direction, and have the money to do so!
Officially called Ultra HD Blu-Ray, both the 4K Blu-Ray players and some of the accompanying 4K movies (that were shot in that definition) should be hitting the markets just before Christmas 2015, so you’ve got a full year of lead-up to decide which of your current movies you’d like to upgrade to the next level of teeny, tiny pixel improvements!
With a potential resolution of 3849 x 2169 and frame rates up to 60 frames per second, providing you have the top-of-the-range TV to go with it, this will be just about as good as home-entertainment is going to get for the next while. Prices haven’t been announced just yet, but we imagine it won’t come cheap. We’ll keep you informed as more information is released leading up to the next holiday season.
