High Dynamic Range continues to prove its importance as Samsung's UBD-K8500 Ultra HD Blu-ray disc player lands on Australian shelves.

Panasonic jumped the gun recently in order to announce Australia's first Ultra HD Blu-ray disc first player -- I've already put the Panasonic player through its paces, but it won't actually be on sale until September and judging by overseas pricing it's likely to sell for at least $1000. Now Samsung has thrown its hat in the ring with a $599 player that hits the shelves this month.

Although you can't buy a a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player just yet, you can buy the super-high-resolution discs that work in them. 20th Century Fox is the first movie publisher with 4K Blu-rays already in Australian stores, with six movies already available -- and there are plenty more on the way.
