Get closer to reality
4K Ultra HD Blu-ray
Find yourself at the heart of every movie and series. 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray shows everything in finer detail than ever before, so you feel like you’re seeing the real thing.
Discover new depths of realism
4K High Dynamic Range
Go deeper into the detail with High Dynamic Range (HDR). Combined with the clarity of 4K, HDR brings previously hidden areas alive with new brightness, shades and colours.
HDR vs SDR
HDR signals contain up to 100x the brightness of a standard (SDR) signal, massively increasing peak brightness while retaining deep and highly-detailed blacks, for an entirely new viewing experience.
All the colours in nature
Support for the new BT.2020 colour spaces means access to a much wider range of colours than conventional TV signals offer. This ultra-wide colour space means content creators can deliver much more saturated and realistic colour from deep aquatic blues to natural greens and vibrant reds.
Sound that takes you to
Get the real cinema sound with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X
Listen as lightning cracks, sirens wail, and car horns blare all around you in startling clarity with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, the leading audio codecs favoured by cinemas everywhere.
A match made in home cinema
Pair the UBP-X800 with the STR-DN1080 receiver for the ultimate home entertainment experience. From the stylish coordinated design through to the enhanced picture and sound quality, the beauty’s in the detail.
Get the best out of every track
Like going from HD video to 4K, High-Resolution Audio tracks are far higher quality than MP3s and even CDs, letting you hear every breath, every drumbeat, every note.
DSEE HX upscaling
Upscale the frequency and dynamic range of MP3s and other compressed music – even your CDs – to near high-resolution quality, so you can get the full experience of the original recording.
Our unique frame-and-beam chassis offers a rigid structure to eliminate micro-vibrations, as well as effective electrical shielding, so all you experience is the highest sound and picture quality.
The UBP-X800's playing power goes far beyond 4K UHD Blu-ray discs. You can watch, listen to, and stream almost anything you like – including most high-definition video and High-Resolution Audio formats, and a host of popular streaming services.
