Panasonic has unveiled two high-spec new Blu-ray players at CES 2019, the DP-UB150 and the DP-UB450.
Both players support the latest version of HDR, HDR10+, which allows the brightness of the picture to be adjusted on a frame-by-frame basis, which the company claims will to a more detailed image than ever before.

Right now, prices and availability for both Blu-ray players is still to be confirmed.
