The first 10 “Mastered in 4K” Blu-ray coming from Sony for 2013 are as follows:
The Amazing Spider-Man™
Bad Teacher, featuring Cameron Diaz
The Karate Kid, featuring Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith
The Other Guys, featuring Will Farrell
Battle: Los Angeles
That’s My Boy, featuring Adam Sandler
Salt, featuring Angelina Jolie
Total Recall 2012, featuring Colin Farrell and Kate Beckinsale
The Bridge on the River Kwai
Most current blu-ray movies are encoded at around 30 MBPS bitrate. These blu-ray movies will be encoded at 40 MBPS bitrate (maximum allowable on a Blu-ray) so in theory they will yield around 30% better picture quality when watched using regular HDTV and potentially much easier for a 2K-to-4K upscaler to do a good job.
Oh, and it comes with Triluminos colour space too.
Watch this space for my review of these titles.
