Los Angeles, CA — May 06, 2014 — BluFocus Inc., a leading testing and certification company for the entertainment industry, announced today the launch of a unique and Industry essential qualification program to ensure that all areas of the Ultra HD ecosystem have been properly enabled and perform as expected.
Although the final specifications for Ultra HD have not been completed, the format and ecosystem are moving forward rapidly.

The main goal of the program is to ensure that Ultra HD content playback is qualified through a series of tests across a matrix of devices and environments defined and approved by the Advisory Committee.
“We are excited about the capabilities of Ultra HD and want to help ensure consumers have the best possible viewing experience,” says Juan Reyes, CTO of BluFocus. “We have developed this program to help make that possible. Our collaborative partnerships with Studios and CE companies, along with our involvement with groups such as the BDA, DECE and others, has helped us define this program so that it benefits all parties involved in the Ultra HD ecosystem.”
