Panasonic has announced that its UB900 Ultra HD Blu-ray player has been officially certified as ULTRA HD PREMIUM. This follows the announcement by the UHD Alliance that it is expanding its Ultra HD Premium certification programme to also cover Ultra HD Blu-ray players and means that the UB900 has met the rigorous testing protocol set out by the UHD Alliance for Ultra HD Blu-ray players.
The UB900 now joins Panasonic’s VIERA DX902 TV which is also ULTRA HD PREMIUM certified. Both products together represent a comprehensive eco-system of next generation products for consumers who want to enjoy the very best quality 4K HDR content with the best equipment.
The UB900 is now available and Panasonic are currently giving away complimentary copies of the multiple Academy Award winning Mad Max: Fury Road and San Andreas with every player.
Ultra HD Blu-ray is the next-generation video disc standard that not only delivers high-quality 4K-resolution pictures but also supports HDR (High Dynamic Range) and the BT.2020 wide colour gamut.
The UB900 features a new 4K High-Precision Chroma Processor equipped with imaging technologies such as chroma processing and high gradation processing that have been fostered and refined by the Panasonic Hollywood Laboratory (PHL) Blu-ray R&D facility.
By taking full advantage of the massive amount of Ultra HD Blu-ray data, the UB900 reproduces video images on a home TV that look exactly as their creators intended them to look.
