Sony unveils first 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray® player for custom install channel
Sony has announced the launch of a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player which it says will “revolutionise” image display for a range of professional applications and will become an ideal component of the most advanced home theatre audio-video systems.
Planned to ship this summer, the new X1000ES Universal Player is compatible with Ultra HD Blu-ray discs, and streams in full 4K resolution and High Dynamic Range (HDR) for greater detail, brightness and contrast.
The player also incorporates a variety of video codecs that can deliver 4K streaming from services including Netflix, Amazon Video and YouTube.
Unlike the X800ES model for the consumer market, the X1000ES has been designed to meet the needs of custom installers and offers full CI compatibility.
It is being offered exclusively to this channel and will be available from authorised Sony AV dealers. A 3-year limited parts and labour warranty is included.
Pricing will be announced at a later date.
