DVDFab, the industry leader in the field of DVD, Blu-ray and video backup solutions, introduces the world's 1st 4K Ultra HD copy software, a brand-new product which allows users to make home backup copies of any unprotected 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray movies their own.
Introducing the DVDFab UHD Copy
Thanks to the increasing availability of both home 4K UHD Blu-ray Players and 4K UHD TVs from major manufacturers, such as Sony, Panasonic, Samsung and more, the next generation 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray titles are becoming popular among Blu-ray lovers and even common consumers. In the meantime, many enthusiasts are expressing their strong desires on social networks and some 3rd party forums for the 4K Ultra HD contents. However, due the facts that both the 4K Ultra HD titles and blank BD XL discs are still quite expensive, backing up the 4K Ultra HD movies to regular BD-50 and BD-25 discs seems to be much more pragmatic and economical.Add a comment
