Panasonic's UHD Blu-ray player to hit Europe in April for €799 / Ł600

03 Mar 2016 | Rasmus Larsen |

Panasonic unveiled its first UHD Blu-ray player at CES in January and at Panasonic Convention the company confirms that UB900 will go on sale in Europe in April for €799 / Ł600. San Andreas and Mad Max: Fury Road are bundled.

Panasonic’s first UHD BD player

Panasonic will be one of the first companies to release a UHD Blu-ray player, only bested by Samsung. Samsung will officially start selling its K8500 player in March and some lucky customers have already received it.

With the UB900 player Panasonic hopes to appeal to sound and video enthusiasts. UB900 obviously supports all of the video elements of the UHD BD standard, including 4K, HDR, 10-bit colors, Rec.2020 and HFR (60fps). Additionally, it has HiFi-grade audio processing and analog audio ports for surround. This will make UB900 somewhat more expensive than Samsung’s player, which is priced at €400-500 in most regions.

All UB900 players will come bundled with two free UHD Blu-ray movies, Panasonic said in Frankfurt. In collaboration with Warner Bros, Panasonic will include San Andreas and Mad Max: Fury Road, both of which are mastered in 4K HDR. Instead of having to redeem the movies after the purchase the movies will be included in the box.

Panasonic confirms to FlatpanelsHD that UB900 will offer apps for Amazon and Netflix. The apps will support 4K as well as HDR streaming.

Panasonic also tells us that while the official launch date in Europe is “mid-April” it expects to start shipping UB900 to most regions in Europe in early April. The suggested retail price is €799 / Ł600. For more information and specifications go here.
