PIONEER UNVEILS ITS FIRST 4K BLU-RAY PLAYER, THE UDP-LX500
Pioneer has finally revealed its long-awaited flagship 4K Blu-ray player. Its latest model has already been heavily teased, but it has now made its debut at a Japanese AV event, with the firm supposedly also testing another device that could be for audiophiles.
The Blu-ray disc association has a few prerequisites for what a device needs to support before its allowed to play Ultra HD Blu-rays. That includes support for HDR10 and 4K resolution, although it’s up to manufacturers whether or not they want to add on HDR10+ and Dolby Vision support. It’s also guaranteed that both Dolby Atmos and DTS:X will be receiving support, as that also forms part of the BDA standard.
