[DVD Player] What is a 4k Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc?

Last Update Date : Apr 09. 2018

The Ultra HD Blu-ray player is a great device for playing Blu-ray discs and streaming
content via your favorite apps like Netflix and Amazon. If you really want to get
everything out of your Ultra HD Blu-ray player, you will need a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray disc.

Many new and recent movies are available or coming soon to 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray,
just make sure you are buying the right thing. There are some Blu-ray discs available
that say "Mastered in 4K" on the box, but these are NOT 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Discs.
These are standard Blu-ray discs that have been scaled down from a 4K picture.
They offer a wider range of color, but it is not the same as a 4k Ultra HD Image.
See below for what a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray disc looks like:

A 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray disc has a much higher capacity than a standard Blu-ray disc
which allows it to store a movie with an Ultra HD resolution. Normal Blu-ray discs look great,
but the maximum resolution is 1920 X 1080. A 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc has a resolution of 3840 X 2160.
That's 4 times the amount of pixels. Many describe an Ultra HD image as feeling like looking through
a window rather than watching TV.
