Silicon Image, a leading provider of HD connectivity solutions, today announced that its 4K Ultra HD adaptive scaling video processor with VRS® ClearView™ technology has been designed into OPPO Digital’s new BDP-103D Blu-ray Disc™ player. The SiI9616 video processor uses adaptive techniques designed to scale both video and graphics up to 4K Ultra HD resolution at 60 frames per second and sharpen Blu-ray-quality video by enhancing image details and nuances.
While the Blu-ray disc (BD) format has been on the market for seven years now, it looks like it has enough potential not only for today’s movies in 1920*1080 resolution in 2D or stereo 3D, but maybe even for the forthcoming movies in 4K quality 3840*2160.
The new technology supports Blu-ray discs (and future UHD/4K discs) fully compatible with existing players while offering 12 bits per color for displays and players compatible with the DCE technology.
The BDA (Blue-ray Disc Association) is currently working on a 4K/UHD format.

But we are excited to have a decision in hand, and are looking forward to sharing more news about it once the specification process has been completed.
Samsung representatives at CES have revealed that the oft-rumored quad-layer Blu-ray format...double the current standard, which could hold upwards of 100GB--will be revamped in preparation for the release of 4K Blu-ray discs by the end of the year.
