This Week’s New 4k Ultra HD Blu-ray Releases With HDR

ultra-hd-blu-ray-sept-27-2016-w-logoScattered within this week’s new home media releases are five Ultra HD Blu-ray Discs for 4k TVs. The titles include Warcraft, The Shallows, Central Intelligence, Mike & Dave Need Wedding Dates, and Everest (which was previously released to conventional Blu-ray).

The UHD BDs from Universal, Fox, Warner Bros. and Sony play video at 2160p (60 fps) on Ultra HD Blu-ray players with the potential of displaying up to 8.3 megapixels, and also feature HDR (High Dynamic Range) specs for an increase in color depth and contrast.

HDR on Ultra HD Blu-rays is usually indicated by a square-looking label that says HDR, or the Ultra HD Premium logo (see reference images below). To take advantage of HDR you’ll need a supporting Ultra HD Blu-ray player and HDR TV. (Read more about HDR video in our dedicated category.)

In terms of audio, Everest, Warcraft, and The Shallows all offer immersive audio with English Dolby Atmos that’s backwards compatible with Dolby TrueHD 7.1. Central Intelligence and Mike & Dave Need Wedding Dates have English DTS-HD Master Audio.

All five UHD BD releases also include redemption codes for Digital HD copies from either, or a combination of, UltraViolet, iTunes and Google Play.

The 4k Blu-ray editions cost $29.99 from retailers such as Amazon, Best Buy and Target.
