3 May, 2016 By: John Latchem

Samsung Electronics May 3 announced that its first Ultra HD Blu-ray player, the UBD-K8500, has been awarded UHD Premium Certification by the UHD Alliance (UHDA). The new certification, introduced in April 2016, is granted to Ultra HD Blu-ray players that comply with rigorous performance standards for resolution, high dynamic range (HDR), peak luminance, black levels and wide color gamut among other key metrics.

“We are honored that our first Ultra HD Blu-ray player, which provides the ultimate cinematic experience, has received Premium Certification from the UHDA,” said Jim Kiczek, VP of AV marketing. “As we continuously strive to bring consumers the most advanced home entertainment products and services, we look forward to furthering our work with the UHDA to incite progress and growth throughout the industry.”

Through the remainder of 2016, the UBD-K8500 will bear a certification logo from the UHDA.

The UHDA recently announced quality criteria for UHD displays, content and distribution methods. For information, visit www.uhdalliance.org.
