LG announces 4K Blu-ray Player

With support for HDR10 and Dolby Vision

Lg Announces 4 K Blu Ray Player

4K UHD Blu-ray seems to be a trending topic this CES 2017, with Panasonic and Sony both revealing their new UHD players. Now, LG has also unveiled its first 4K UHD Blu-ray player, the LG UP970.

The LG UP970 is quite different from the other 4K UHD Blu-ray players, as its supports Dolby Vision along with HDR10, while other players only support the HDR10 standard for vibrant and colour-rich high-dynamic-range visuals. This makes sense, as LG has been working on pushing the Dolby Vision standard with its new  Dolby Vision-capable OLED TVs, such as the new LG Super UHD 65UH950T.

In terms of ports on the UP970, there will be two HDMI ports, including an HDMI 2.0a port for Ultra HD video output and an HDMI 1.4 for audio output. In terms of compatible sound formats, it will support Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Atmos and DTS-HD Master Audio. However, the player wont be shipping with Dolby Vision capability out of the box. Instead, you will have to wait for a software update scheduled for later this year.

Pricing and release date information is yet to be revealed. Stay tuned for more information soon. Are you looking forward to the LG Blu-ray 4K UHD player? Let us know in the comments below.
