This release is for the OPPO UDP-203/205 4K UHD Blu-ray Disc Player.
Special Notice:
1. Once this firmware version is installed on the player, you will not be able to revert back to any previous official or public beta firmware. There will be no problem upgrading to any future official or beta firmware release.

  • Added the “Dolby Vision” mode under the HDR Setting menu, which allows the player to convert the output to Dolby Vision when possible.
  • Added the “Dolby Vision Processing” setting under the HDR Setting menu. This setting allows customers to choose whether Dolby Vision processing is handled mainly by the TV or the UDP-20x player.
  • Added MQA support via the USB DAC In for the UDP-205 players. (More info can be found in the “USB DAC Firmware” section on the UDP-205 support page.)
  • Added the “Up-Sample DAC Input” setting under the Audio Processing menu for the UDP-205.

Features
  • 4K Ultra HD Video -The UDP-203 supports the playback of 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Discs. Packing a resolution of up to 3840 x 2160 pixels, UHD Blu-ray delivers four times the pixels of Full HD Blu-ray. The UDP-203 is also capable of playing 4K media files and user generated content. Support for decoding the HEVC, H.264, VP9 4K, and Hi10P video codecs provides increased compatibility with user generated media.
  • High Dynamic Range - The UDP-203 supports High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Wide Color Gamut. The enhanced resolution, refined contrast, greater brightness, and expanded color produce stunning video with unparalleled clarity and detail. In addition to supporting the HDR10 format on discs and video files, it is also capable of providing an accurate conversion of HDR to SDR for older displays, as well as conversion between various color spaces such as BT.2020, BT.709, and BT.601.
  • Dolby Vision Upgradeable - Leveraging hardware designed to support Dolby Vision, customers can expect a firmware update in early 2017 that brings Dolby Vision support to the player. Dolby Vision transforms the TV viewing experience by delivering striking highlights, brilliant colors, and deep darks never before seen on standard television screens, and OPPO is committed to bringing this exciting technology to the UDP-203.
  • Reference Quality Video - The UDP-203 combines the latest technology with OPPO's many years of experience in delivering high quality video and audio. A customized quad-core video decoder/processor integrates OPPO's advanced video decoding, processing and optimization expertise.
  • High Precision Disc Loader - A high-precision, well-balanced laser optical disc loader ensures smooth and reliable playback of all types of disc media. An optimized laser mechanism to ensure super fast disc loading, strong error detection and correction.
  • Exceptional Build Quality - The UDP-203 features a brushed aluminum front panel, a rigid steel chassis and gold plated connectors. The solid build quality not only presents a sleek aesthetic, but also ensures dependable operation and reliable connection.
  • Multiple Disc Formats - The design of the UDP-203 focuses on quality playback and universal compatibility with multiple disc and file formats. In addition to the latest UHD Blu-ray, the UDP-203 supports regular Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, DVD, DVD-Audio, SACD, and audio CD.
  • Media File Playback - The UDP-203 is equipped with two USB 3.0 ports on the back and another USB port on the front. Users can play video, music and photos from USB hard drives or thumb drives.
  • Home Network Access - Built-in 802.11ac Wi-Fi or Gigabit Ethernet connects the UDP-203 to users’ home networks, so users can easily play media files stored on computers and home servers.
  • Lossless Audio Decoding - The UDP-203’s video performance and universal compatibility is further complemented by its support of lossless high resolution audio. The player decodes audio file formats such as AIFF, WAV, ALAC, APE and FLAC. It also directly plays Direct-Stream Digital audio files in stereo DSD64/128 or multi-channel DSD64
  • Advanced Audio Formats - With internal decoding of Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, and bitstream output for object-based immersive audio formats such as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, the UDP-203 delivers great sound for both movie soundtracks and music.
  • High Performance DAC - The UDP-203 offers 7.1-channel audio outputs for connecting to a 7.1-channel or 5.1-channel surround sound system. The 7.1-ch outputs feature "Velvet Sound" 32-bit premium digital-to-analog converters from AKM of Japan, delivering an incredible sound stage and an immersive surround experience.
  • Dual HDMI Outputs - The player features two HDMI outputs – an HDMI 2.0 port for connecting to the latest UHD TVs, projectors and A/V receivers, and an HDMI 1.4 audio port for connecting to older A/V receivers. Customers with newer 4K- and HDR-capable A/V receivers can use a full HDMI 2.0 signal path, while customers with older A/V receivers can have a split A/V setup.
  • HDMI 2.0 Input - An HDMI 2.0 input port that supports UHD resolution is available for users to connect an external streaming device. This approach affords users the flexibility to choose from a wide range of streaming devices and easily upgrade as streaming technologies evolve, while still taking advantage of the UDP-203's audio and video processing capabilities.
  • Easy Integration - Integration-friendly features such as RS-232 control, back panel IR sensor and third-party IP control make the UDP-203 a great choice for any home theater system. Coaxial and optical digital audio outputs provides backward compatibility with legacy audio components.

In addition to ^ MediaTec, Amlogic has developed a chip set for set-top-box applications.

Prior to opening Value Electronics (20+ years ago) I was a TV Broadcast system engineer for most of my adult life and I still stay very close to that industry and attend most NABs and other conventions and special events. I came across this information at IBC in Amsterdam.

Here's the press release from Amiogic, a well respected SoC manufacturer. I have been told by reliable sources that this set-top-box DV SoC can be adapted into 4K BD players.

The date on that is 9/3 2015? That can't be the link. A little dated.

Send a link please. DV UHD bluray titles are supposed to be released in the spring of 2017. No way no how they are waiting till the fall to release a player! DV discs will not sell without a player. A DV UHD bluray player will sell today!

Also know that as of a couple weeks ago Dolby did not have a UHD DV license agreement for BD players.

The problem is that most SoC are greatly simplified for UHD TV use only, not at all designed to be used to support a Ultra-HD Blu-ray player. Whether is can be adapted from its implied set-top-box purposing to be used in a Ultra-HD Blu-ray player has yet to happen.

Your right my error with date (recent news) , its a older article but still showing the relevant partnership between Dolby and Mediatek. Later Mediatek announced they were working on releasing the World’s first SoC to support Ultra-HD Blu-ray players with High Dynamic Range at CES 2016.
