Sony Debuts Premium 4K UHD Blu-ray Player

Sony Electronics has revealed its new flagship Blu-ray Disc player, the UBP-X1100ES, featuring 4K UHD video, High Dynamic Range (HDR), Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos and 4K upscaling up to 60p2.

The player is retailing for $600 now at Best Buy, Amazon and other outlets.

“We strive to provide our home viewer with content that matches the creator’s intent, and the latest addition to our Blu-ray player lineup reflects that mission,” said Mike Fasulo, president and COO of Sony Electronics North America. “No matter what content is playing on the UBP-X1100ES, it’s equipped to provide a theater-level experience every time.”

Sony is touting the player’s ability to support new BT.2020 color spaces, providing access to an ultra-wide color range, to better preserve the artist’s visual intent, and deliver more saturated and realistic colors.

Along with support for Dolby Atmos sound, the player also handles DTS:X, and can upscale compressed music for MP3s and CDs.
