News - CyberLink Ships World’s First Ultra HD Blu-ray Playback Software to the PC Market

It looks like those UltraHD Blu-ray drives from Pioneer will come with a copy of CyberLinks UHD support PowerDVD (huzzah!), with retail copies available for purchase sometime later. CyberLink didn't mention how much said retail copy would be, but they did note that only the latest (and greatest) Intel Kaby Lakes would be able to handle it - more details in the PR. I made a point of asking about AMD's new Ryzen CPU (answer was "there are only plans to support Intel Platforms"), so... hmm...

News - Ultra HD Blu-ray drives coming from Pioneer via BDR-S11J-BK / BDR-S11J-X models

It should come as no surprise that the first OEM with UltraHD Blu-ray drives will be Pioneer. It is news that there will be two models ranging from ~$200-$300, and only Windows 10 will be supported. Should go nicely with that copy of PowerDVD.

News - CyberLink PowerDVD certified for Ultra HD Blu-ray playback

We haven't heard much from CyberLink about PowerDVD in a while, and I guess it made sense because there really wasn't much going on with the player, or space. That has changed however, with PowerDVD becoming the first PC player for Ultra HD Blu-ray disc. This is welcome news on two fronts. First, the HTPC as the best universal player dream is still alive, and second Ultra HD Blu-ray drives for the PC have to be coming to market soon.

News - Panasonic DMP-UB900 Ultra HD Blu-ray player reviewed @ WHAT HI-FI

It doesn't look like you can actually buy this £600 Ultra HD Blu-ray player, which is disappointing because it certainly was loved by the reviewer at WHAT HI-FI. Naturally you will need a 4K TV to make it useful, and there aren't many titles out yet, so I guess there's plenty of time for it to become available.
