I see digital bits seems to think it will be out in April for $499 as long as the cost is 341.28 then sure I will have one, ideally it will be less than that.

I feel some clarification is in order. Blu-ray players will continue to bitstream Dolby Atmos and DTS: X soundtracks (7.1 TrueHD and Master Audio backwards compatible) to receivers and pre-amp/processors with built-in renderers. There is no need for them to have "support" for Dolby Atmos and DTS: X.
I hope he is right I can't see why the player couldn't just bit stream.

I can see it not decoding Atmos, but bitstreaming should be a non issue.

I don't care about Dolby atmos and such because I cannot decode it anyway and I don't have enough speakers.

Why UK only? Seems like they want to test a small market before dipping into the big terrorities?

I agree seeing as current Blu Ray players can bitstream Atmos.

Only Disc support Dolby Atmos/DTS:X to AV/Receiver. For as example UltraHD player auto audio to AV/Receiver will decode show display Dolby Atmos/DTS: X same do as a bluray player.

Digital Bits also confirms no Blu-ray 3D support:
http://www.thedigitalbits.com/column...ts/010716_1830

Odd choice. Technically it's probably more difficult to decode high bitrate HEVC than to decode Blu-ray 3D MVC.

Can $499 really be true? Compared to the Samsung player the Panasonic offers a lot more so I guessed it would be more expansive.

Lots chatter here about "willing to pay a fortune". That's the fastest way to kill this format. Blu-Ray played that game, and a decade later it's still struggling to get off the ground.


The manufacturers are at it again. With players costing as much as a low-end television, and the studios trying to get folks to go on-line to play a movie, they're trying to go "bleeding edge elitists are suckered into this" mode.


I can't tell if they're dancing with joy or hopping because they shot themselves in the foot again. The big guys are standing around, wondering who is going in the water first.

Please ignore The Digital Bits. They haven't updated that article. They are still confused. This will support 3D playback.

I don't understand no Dolby Atmos support as even normal Blu-ray players will currently pass Dolby Atmos to Dolby Atmos enabled receivers. Now I would understand if they said it does not pass Dolby Vision but it certainly should handle Dolby Atmos which is just an audio function.

Until OPPO or Sony release a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player, most likely this Panasonic DMP-UB900 might be the best one on the market once it is released. Will need to wait for a professional review to make sure. Also in theory 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray titles when played in a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player should play at 1080P resolution when connected to any old 1080P display. Those owning 4K Ultra HD equipment with HDCP 2.2 will be able to experience 3840 x 2160 resolution.

Also it would be nice to see most or all the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray players supporting 1080P Blu-ray 3-D discs. So far that appears to be the case. I personally would not purchase a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player unless it supports Blu-ray 3-D. Hopefully they all will support Blu-ray 3-D like the Panasonic model.

All modern Blu-ray players that bitstream support Dolby ATMOS and DTS X. This should be a non issue.

Unfortunately, $499.00 is the low end of the range for price ideas, the price idea from most sources is $800.00 (probably higher in the U.K.) I hope he is right about availability in the U.S. in April. Others think that April will be for Europe, with an intro in the U.S. to come later.
