The Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA) has launched a new promotional website extolling the benefits of the new Ultra HD (UHD) Blu-ray disc format over existing Blu-ray and SD movies.
Ultra HD Blu-ray movies will start appearing on store shelves in early 2016, and apart from having four times as many pixels as standard Blu-ray movies, the BDA was also keen to point out the other improvements over HD and SD.
For example, UHD Blu-ray movies are capable of storing and displaying more than twice as many colors compared to Blu-ray, up to 76% of the colors the human eye can see.
The website also features interactive comparisons showing off UHD Blu-ray's High Dynamic Range support and support for 60 fps content.
A spokesperson for the BDA told website TWICE that the group is committed to educating consumers about the key benefits of UHD Blu-ray.
"The BDA is working on both retail and consumer education programs that will speak to not only Ultra HD Blu-ray but more generally to some of the more critical aspects of UHD such as HDR and wide color gamut, among others," the spokesperson said.
