4K Blue-Ray discs are officially on their way, and discs and players should be available by the end of 2015.
In conversation with TechRadar, Victor Macuda, CEO of Blu-Ray Disk Association Global Promotions committee has confirmed that the group is currently considering that by the end of third quarter of 2015 decide on the specifications and release the product into sales.
He has also added that he expects that the users will be able to buy the first 4K UHD Blu-Ray discs by the end of 2015.
“Maybe we haven’t been pro-active as other manufacturers who have been offering 4K services, but that is the nature of our group. We don’t want to talk about stuff, unless there is something we can really talk about” – Macuda said.
However, he didn’t say anything about the expected price of 4K discs, but it will definitely be bigger then one of the existing blu-ray discs.
