New Sony 4k Blu-ray Player Will Support Dolby Vision HDR

Sony UBP-X700 Blu-ray PlayerSony announced its new UBP-X700 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player will support HDR using the Dolby Vision specification, the first Sony model to do so. Unfortunately, the feature won’t be available until next summer via a firmware upgrade to the player. The UBP-X700, however, does support HDR10 out of the box, as well as 24p True Cinema, 4K Upscale (60p), up to 12-bit deep color, and Dolby Atmos (bitstream out)/Dolby True HD decoding (7.1-channel). The UBP-X700 will start shipping this month. (Price to be announced.)

Sony STR-DH790 Receiver

With the announcement, Sony also revealed the Dolby Atmos-enabled STR-DH790 AV receiver. The 7.2-channel 4K/HDR AV receiver supports both Dolby Atmos and DTS:X for immersive sound, and can pass through HDR10 and Dolby Vision video signals without any loss. The STR-DH790, available in the Spring, also integrates Advanced D.C.A.C. (Digital Cinema Auto Calibration) for easy automatic speaker setup. (Price to be announced.)

If you’re at CES 2018, you can find Sony at Booth #17300 in the Las Vegas Convention Center.
