This week we had Panasonic and Andy Parsons from the BDA host a dinner for the HTF Meet in LA. One of the topics that came up during a talk that Andy gave was support for UltraHD in Blu-ray. Andy instilled some hope that the BDA is actually looking at future formats by forming a new group called the "Format Extensions Study Task Force". I thought the DVD Forum had long names for groups. At any rate, it is a group "that looks at ways to extend the format (Blu-ray) to add new functions and technologies that are being introduced over time." When asked if that would include UltraHD, or as Andy referred to it as "4K", hand said "It is clearly one of the things we have to look at". Doing a lot of work in the the DVD Forum, this does not mean that UltraHD will be supported, but it is inspiring to see that it is at least being investigated. Here's to UltraHD on future Blu-ray players. How would UltraHD/2160P/Quad HD/ 4K fit on a 50gb disc? Andy referred to new codecs that are emerging as a way to potentially allow that to happen. After going to the Dolby facility and seeing Dolby's glassless 3D prototype display, I have discovered a real use for UltraHD sets. I think UltraHD used for glassless 3D is the ticket and is something that would propel HD 3D into more consumers actually using the technology. Would you buy a UltraHD TV and new Blu-Ray player?
