For many years, the bluray market was heavily dominated by Sony because the company kept their Playstation 3 as the most affordable bluray player in the time.
Because of this restriction, the discs obviously lost the period in which 25 or 50 GB of storage space was good enough for most content. With a gap that extends almost for a decade, 50 GB of storage is irrelevant now because even games measure at 60 GB or even higher.
Online streaming and websites have grabbed the chance by being the first to offer 4K streaming. Websites like Youtube, Netflix have gone ahead in time by allowing users to enjoy these high resolution content digitally. When everyone though the discs are dead, an announcement comes Blu-ray disc association – BDA.
Ultra HD Blurays Incoming
BDA has announced the new range of ultra HD blurays which is going to be the next gen physical media that everyone was looking forward to. The problem with upgrading from DVDs to something new is that you have to buy a player one more time.
But, with these discs, it is possible to make them work on existing blu-ray players which saves a lot of investment. Another news claims that you actually have to buy different devices to be able to make them work.
We will be able to confirm in the near future. Ultra HD Blu-rays will offer 66 GB to 100 GB of storage space making it easier to store videos with a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels. It will also support DTS X, Dolby Atmos format besides offering sharp colors in the picture. HDMI 2.0 will be the standard input method for these discs.
