Universal Disc Player with 4K streaming and 4K Blu-ray playback
Sony Electronics announced the UBP-X700 4K Dolby Vision capable Ultra HD Blu-ray Player is expected to be released later this month, although a summer 2018 firmware update will be required to enable HDR10 and Dolby Vision. When combined with a compatible TV the latter two technologies reveal finer detail for a more real-life picture.
In addition, support for the new BT.2020 color spaces means access to a much wider range of colors than conventional TV signals offer. This ultra-wide color space means content creators can deliver much more saturated and realistic color from deep aquatic blues to natural greens and vibrant reds.
The UBP-X700 includes built-in Wi-Fi with MIMO that enables access to 4K streaming services, including Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and YouTube. This player also supports a broad range of video and music formats, including MP4, FLAC, AAC and PCM audio to 11.2 MHz DSD.
Of course all older discs formats will also play in this player, including CD, DVD and regular Blu-ray too.
Pricing and Availability
The Sony UBP-X700 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player will be available January 2018. Pricing to be announced.
