Panasonic DP-UB150 BluRay Player UHD/4K. GB Delivery 2-3 Days
The DP-UB150 features Dolby Atmos compatibility, enabling you to enjoy an exceptionally immersive 3D soundstage with a compatible audio device such as a TV, soundbar or AV receiver. In addition to conventional surround sound, Dolby Atmos uses height channels to precisely place sound effects or the sounds of individual objects at or above ear level. Paired with an audio system that can decode Dolby Atmos, the result is breathtaking movie sound.
Support for HDR10+ dynamic metadata technology and Dolby Vision
The DP-UB150 features HDR (high dynamic range), which has a wider, brighter dynamic range than conventional SDR (standard dynamic range) to produce more natural, more lifelike images when viewed on an HDR compatible TV. More than that, the UB150 is also compatible with HDR10+, the latest version of HDR, which uses ‘dynamic’ metadata to re-optimise the brightness continually throughout the movie rather than sticking to a single ‘static’ setting. The result is the ultimate home cinema experience, with even more dynamic, colourful and realistic HDR images that precisely match the creator's intention.
4K camcorder video and JPEG playback
4K videos (MP4 format) made with a camera or camcorder can be reproduced using Panasonic's 2019 Ultra HD Players, while JPEG data can be output in 4K resolution so users can enjoy the memories of vacation trips in all their natural beauty.

Frequently Asked Questions and Answers
Will an Ultra HD BluyRay player work on a non-4k TV?
No. An Ultra-HD BluRay player will give no picture while playing BluRay discs (even non-4k discs) on a non-4k TV. If your player is connected via an AV Receiver or Soundbar then this will also need to provide 4k compatibility
Does my AV Receiver need to be 4k compatible for 4k?
Yes. Your receiver will need to have a minimum specification of HDMI-2.0 with HDCP-2.2 copy protection to pass 4k at 24/50/60fps. Although HDMI-1.4 is capable of passing 4k at 24fps, the lack of support for HDCP-2.2 prevents use of this feature with almost all 4k sources. An Ultra-HD BluRay player will give no image on BluRay playback without HDCP-2.2 support, even with regular (non-4k) BluRay discs.
Do I need 4k certified HDMI cables to run 4k?
Ideally, yes, but some older cables that were manufactured to a high specification may still work. HDMI is best thought of as a data transmission rather than video and as such the acheivable quality is down to the bandwidth of your cables. For basic 4k compatibility a bandwidth of around 10Gbps is required. This specification was introduced as a minimum standard for HDMI-1.4 certification and is capable of 4k resolution up to 24fps with Chroma sampling up to 4:2:2. 4k 50/60fps is not possible at this bandwidth. For the latest full 4k specifications a bandwidth of 18Gbps is required. This was introduced as a minimum standard for HDMI 2.0 and covers 4k resolution at 24/50/60fps up to 4:4:4 Chroma sampling. The longer your cable the more loss your HDMI signal experiences so when using longer cable lengths or installing inside walls and ceilings it is vital that you select a cable that is up to the job as if the data rate is insufficient you may receive no picture at all.
What do the different HDMI Version numbers mean?
Each HDMI version number has a minimum set of specifications that manufacturers must meet to be compatible with the latest video standards at that time. The different version numbers offer the following compatibility: == HDMI 1.0 == HDMI plug types A & B Launched. Minimum Bandwidth 4.95Gbps. Guaranteed resolution 1080p, optional audio support up to 8-channel 192k/24bit PCM, Dolby Digital, & DTS. In practice most HDMI 1.0 equipment did not provide audio support == HDMI 1.1 == as above but with optional audio support for DVD-A (MLP) == HDMI 1.2 == as above but with optional audio support for SACD (One-Bit) == HDMI 1.2a == as above with optional CEC (consumer electronics control) support for command signals between components == HDMI 1.3 == Minimum bandwidth 10.2Gbps. Guaranteed resolution 1440p, Deep Colour support, optional audio support for Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby True-HD, & DTS-HD. Automatic Audio/Video synchronisation to improve lip-sync == HDMI 1.3a == Compatibility improvements to 1.3 standard. Introduction of Plug type C (Mini-HDMI) == HDMI 1.3b == Compatibility improvements to HDMI 1.3a == HDMI 1.4 == Minimum Bandwidth 10.2Gbps. Guaranteed resolution 2160p (4k) at 24fps.
