Re: Let's talk about Ultra HD Blu-ray

I picked up Revenant for $24.99 at Target although I won't have a 4K Player or display for many months. To me, it makes sense to pay $5 to $7 more for the extra 4K disc. I'll most likely do the same for Deadpool in a couple weeks.

What has gotten me more excited about 4K is that a new PS4 will support it. I've been planning on getting a second PS4 for my daughter in time for the new Final Fantasy XV, so it was fortunate for me that FFXV was delayed so long in time for me to get the 4K PS4.

Once I have the new PS4, then I will actively look for a 4K projector. The Sony VPL-VW665ES is the model that I have my eye on, but I'd like to find a authorized version for under $10k. Hopefully there will be either a price drop or a model refresh by this fall.

The existing Blu-ray for Labyrinth was sourced from a 4k master. That part was done a few years ago. However, I presume that the UHD disc will be re-graded for HDR and remixed into Atmos. How long that usually takes, I don't know.

Picture the way it was designed to be seen and sound the way it was designed to be heard... I mean, who'd want that anyway?

Re: UHD release announcements

sounds like Lionsgate will be aggressive in releasing it's back catalog:

Steve Beeks Bullish on Catalog, 4K Ultra HD Releases


Characterizing the launch of 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and digital distribution as being in its infancy, Lionsgate co-COO Steve Beeks says the studio remains ahead of the industry remastering titles for distribution in the new high-definition format. Lionsgate is remastering its top 100 movies in UHD for digital, broadcast and physical release.

“It is an opportunity for us to continue to release, not only new product, but go back to the library and release key titles once again,” Beeks said on a May 26 fiscal call.

The executive expects the winter holidays and fourth quarter to be “pretty big” for 4K releases.

“I think you’re going to see [4K Ultra HD] determine its course over the next several months.”

Separately, Beeks said Lionsgate’s home entertainment library of proprietary and third-party titles earmarked for distribution generated $520 million in revenue in the fiscal year (ended March 31), with contribution to the bottom line of around $200 million.

He said the library business continues to grow — adding 600 titles in the past year — even after posting its largest-year of contribution over the past 10 years, with cash flow approaching $300 million.

Beeks, who is also president of the motion picture group, said third-party companies continue to seek out Lionsgate to distribute and manage their movie libraries because of “our success in that area.”

“The truth is the library business is still very robust for us,” he said.

Hey Steve. Thanks for pretty much sitting out Blu-ray and refusing to license your catalog out to other distributors. Asshole.

To Boldly Go — Taking on the world’s most beloved science fiction franchise was no small mission. Director J.J. Abrams, writers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, producer Damon Lindelof, and executive producer Bryan Burk talk about the many challenges they faced and their strategy for success.
Casting — The producers knew their greatest task was finding the right cast to reprise these epic roles. The cast, for their part, talk about the experience of trying to capture the essence of these mythic characters. The piece concludes with a moving tribute to Leonard Nimoy.
A New Vision — J.J. Abrams’ vision was not only to create a Star Trek that was a bigger, more action-packed spectacle, but also to make the spectacle feel real. Every aspect of production—from unique locations to the use of classic Hollywood camera tricks—was guided by this overall objective.
Starships — Abrams and production designer Scott Chambliss were careful to pay tribute to the design of the original Enterprise, but they also wanted to make it futuristic and cool for a modern audience. This chapter focuses on the unique stories behind the creation of the film’s starships.
Aliens — Designers Neville Page and Joel Harlow talk about the hurdles they faced creating new alien species, recreating the Romulans and Vulcans, and designing the terrifying creatures on Delta Vega for the new Star Trek.
Planets — From the frozen landscape of Delta Vega to the desert plains of Vulcan, Scott Chambliss and the art department had a number of radically different planets to create. Abrams’ desire to shoot on real locations whenever possible led the production team to a number of strange and surprising locations.
Props and Costumes — Property master Russell Bobbitt had the unique challenge of designing props that were both true to the original series and pertinent to today’s technology. Likewise, costume designer Michael Kaplan talks about how he designed costumes that paid homage to what came before yet were relevant and timeless.
Ben Burtt and the Sounds of Star Trek — When famed sound designer Ben Burtt was hired to create sounds for the first Star Wars film, he took his inspiration from the original “Star Trek” series. Burtt jumped at the opportunity to pay tribute to the sounds that sparked his career with the sounds he created for the new Star Trek.
Score — As a fan of the original series, composer Michael Giacchino embraced the challenge of creating new music for Star Trek while preserving the spirit of Alexander Courage’s celebrated theme.
Gene Roddenberry’s Vision — J.J. Abrams, Leonard Nimoy, previous Star Trek writers and producers, and scientific consultant Carolyn Porco describe and commend the optimistic and enduring vision of Gene Roddenberry.
Deleted Scenes with Optional Commentary
Starfleet Vessel Simulator — Explore extensive data on the U.S.S. Enterprise and the Romulan ship, the Narada. Submerse yourself in breathtaking 360° views and close-ups and review detailed tech information.

Re: UHD release announcements

Has any music concerts for Ultra HD been announced or are there any plans to make Ultra HD music concerts in the future?

Re: UHD release announcements

This is pretty sweet...not sure if the Amazon exclusive will be the only Ultra HD version to include the 3D Blu-ray, but most releases haven't been including the 3D Blu-ray discs, so I like this set a lot.
