Sonopress manufactures Ultra HD discs for Hollywood studios and distributors. It has now been six months since they began production in March. Sonopress, a company in the Bertelsmann Group, has already produced and delivered one million Ultra HD Blu-ray discs (4K).
Sonopress receives certification for 100-gigabyte disc
Huge success for Sonopress: The high-tech company, which is among the world’s leading manufacturers of optical storage media, succeeded in completing the process development of the three-layer Ultra HD Blu-ray disc earlier than expected. The Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA) has given the Gütersloh-based company its official approval to manufacture the innovative 100-gigabyte disc.
Sonopress GmbH, a company in the Bertelsmann Group, has produced the highly anticipated Ultra HD Blu-ray disc for the US market on behalf of major Hollywood player Warner Bros. The first titles to be released in this format in early March include Mad Max: Fury Road, The LEGO Movie and blockbusters like San Andreas and Pan. UHD BD format features a resolution that is four times higher than traditional Blu-ray discs plus higher storage density, and provides markedly improved contrast in 4K format on the newest generation of TV screens. The innovative new data storage medium has a capacity between 66 and 100 gigabytes. Sonopress is so far one of the few companies in the world to become certified in the production of the new UHD Blu-ray disc.
