Thousands of 4K TV’s were purchased this Christmas, unfortunately there’s still a lack of 4K media for these shiny new sets. 2016 may finally put an end to the 4K drought. Sony Home Entertainment and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment have already announced plans to give some of their titles the 4K treatment. According to Variety, Warner Home Video is following their lead by releasing four of their stand-out titles in 4K, Mad Max:Fury Road, Pan, San Andreas and The Lego Movie.

 

Along with these four titles, Warner Home Video will begin dispensing 4K versions of new releases along side the traditional DVD and Blu-Ray offerings. By the end of the year they hope to have over 35 4K titles available.

 

4K or Ultra HD video as it’s sometimes referred to, has four times the resolution of traditional HD. The new format also features a wider color gamut and HDR (High Dynamic Range) which results in deeper richer colors and unbelievable contrast ratios.

 

The news couldn’t come at a better time as Samsung is set to show off the first 4K blu-ray player at this year’s CES. 4K has been stuck in a holding pattern the past few years, but its beginning to look like 2016 may finally by the year 4K grows up.
