The THX-certified player supports all the features of the Ultra HD Blu-ray spec, including High Dynamic Range (HDR10, not Dolby Vision) and features Panasonic's 4K High-Precision Chroma Processor, 4K upscaling, Blu-ray 3D playback, 4K apps for Netflix and YouTube, Miracast support, and more. 

From Panasonic
Panasonic has announced USA availability and pricing of its much-anticipated DMP-UB900 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player.

The DMP-UB900 will be available for $699 at select retail locations, including Best Buy Magnolia stores and shop.panasonic.com, in the month of September.

As demand for 4K continues to expand, the new-generation DMP-UB900 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player offers a new video viewing experience for those who demand uncompromised quality in picture and sound.

Technologies from the Panasonic Hollywood Laboratory, the foundation of Blu-ray Disc Research & Development, are applied to Panasonic's original 4K High-Precision Chroma Processor. 4K image color signals (4:2:0) are interpolated into 4K (4:4:4) by a multi-tap chroma process for natural textures and depth.

4K internet video is supported by YouTube and NETFLIX for a wider variety of high-quality content. These high-definition internet video signals are processed by Panasonic's 4K High-Precision Chroma Processor to achieve crisp, beautiful images.

The THX certified DMP-UB900 reproduces the finely nuanced colors and richly detailed images intended by the film's creator, while also achieving lifelike surround sound. View movies at home with quality comparable to movies enjoyed at the cinema.

From signal processing to output, the DMP-UB900 was designed to deliver stunning sound quality. Large-capacity electrolytic capacitors provide powerful sound, and a Mica capacitor reduces digital noise from the power line. A LAN Common Mode Filter reduces noise from external devices during network playback and hi-res audio compatible 192kHz/32bit Audio DAC.

Wireless LAN system built-in, Network drive access, Miracast compatible with Android devices, Ver. 4.2 and above and Miracast certified. Web browser, DLNA (Client & Renderer), External HDD playback with capacities of 2TB or less and processing NTFS/ FAT32 data is supported.
