4k/uhd blu-ray burners

Any sign of these yet? I can shoot UHD, can edit UHD, have a UHD TV and would like to burn UHD to disc and then play it.

Haven't seen any UHD Blu-Ray recordable media, nor a burner. Only a few players available.

Obviously out there somewhere if only in the hands of commercial producers as easy enough to buy a "4K" BD movie.

Re: 4k/uhd blu-ray burners

I believe the commercial production companies "press" the discs, they don't burn them. Not sure what the hold up is for us little people, I thought it was anticipated they would be selling burners by early 2016. Hope it's not about a disagreement on the disc format. One time was enough!

W,out!

Re: 4k/uhd blu-ray burners

I would guess these UHD Bluray 4K players will play 4K media files burned and "authored" to regular Bluray discs (or even a thumb drive) and it would play correctly in 4K.

I just looked at the Panasonic UHD Bluray manual online: ftp://ftp.panasonic.com/bluray/om/dmp-ub900_en_om.pdf and it plays all kinds of formats. Nice.

Yes. The media for burning a 4k blu-ray is a BD-R, just like for standard blu-ray. The Blu-ray spec includes 38402160p 59.94p. Note that's QHD, not true 4k. Not that it matters that much.

So all you need for media are BD-Rs through four layer BD-XLs. For playback you just need one of the new gen. players that can handle QHD. Pannasonic, Samsung, etc. have them on the market already.

As to burning... different story. A quick search of the "usual suspects" didn't turn a single QHD/UHD burner. Pioneer has a nice quad-layer burner, but it doesn't yet support the QHD specs.

Such is the bleeding edge of technology. I'm sure a decent burner is "right around the corner" like always. ;-)

Re: 4k/uhd blu-ray burners

Any recent developments? I have a top-specced Macbook Pro Retina, but a 2013 model so no UHD output.

My similar age iMac does output UHD but is hardly portable.

I seem to be faced with having to buy a newer Macbook , which I don't otherwise need, unless there is or will be, soon, a UHD BD burner aimed at the consumer market.

Interesting but not what I'm after which is a UHD BD burner at an affordable price. There must be commercial ones out there but as far as I know no consumer one, yet.

ps just purchased a used Macbook Air 11 incher which outputs a UHD signal to my TV and is portable enough.
