Sony launches Dolby Vision capable HD Blu-ray player

Sony has launched its first Dolby Vision capable UBP-X700 Ultra HD Blu-ray Player in India.

Priced at Rs 27,990, the UBP-X700 complements the HDR viewing experience as it supports HDR10 and Dolby Vision via a Firmware update.

The player offers 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray playbacks that shows everything in finer detail for a more real-life picture. Optimizing the way the HDR picture is delivered from the player to the TV screen, the UBP-X700 supports HDR10 and Dolby Vision for ground-breaking detail, color and brightness. The same will be available soon via Firmware update.

An HDR10 signal contains up to 100x the brightness of a standard (SDR) signal, increasing peak brightness while retaining deep and highly-detailed blacks upscaling the visual experience for ultimate immersion. The 4K processing ensures a cinematic experience by bringing over 8 million pixels to life and a picture quality that is four times richer than Full HD.

The UBP-X700 player incorporates four times the resolution of conventional Blu-ray (Full HD), with new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray discs and 4K streaming services including Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and YouTube.

The player supports a range of video and music formats, including MP4, DSD, FLAC, and others that ensures a complete cinematic experience for the viewers on the go.

Dolby Atmos is an HDR solution that creates an enveloping and engaging cinematic atmosphere at home. It helps to bring scenes to life with striking highlights, deeper darks, and vibrant colors.

DTS-X can create an unlimited number of audio objects which adapt to your speakers in real time, to get the biggest impact out of every move soundtrack. With DTS-X support in UBP-X700, you can get the best sound output from your speakers.

Customers can pair UBP-X700 with Sony’s HT-ST5000, 7.1.2 Wireless Home Theatre system, to get the best cinematic experience at your home. ST5000 complements X700 by supporting features like 4K signal pass through, DTS-X and Dolby Atmos Sound support and makes your overall movie experience memorable.
