There is excitement in the world of TV with a flurry of Ultra HD TV released this year. But the question on everyone’s lips is ‘Where is the content’? Fear not. Sony will begin shipping Ultra HD (or UHD) 4K resolution blu-ray discs very soon. Sony even promised a 4K online-delivery service.
Also on the pipeline – the 2014 World Cup Final from Brazil will be shown in Ultra HD to satellite viewers in Japan. Lucky devils!
But first up, here are the UHD titles that will be Sony releasing this month:
- Angels and Demons
- Battle: Los Angeles
- Karate Kid
- The Other Guys
- Taxi Driver
- Total Recall
The titles are not very exciting but it’s a start. These discs will have only the feature content without any special features or commentaries that you usually get on regular blu-rays. The good news is that Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey was with RED Epic digital cameras that are capable of 5K resolution. So we wait with bated breath.
You can now get shopping for Ultra HD TVs. They are costly, but for adopters of the latest technology there is a price to pay. But if you are upgrading your TV you might seriously want to consider getting one that is UHD 4K ready.
