According to this post

it would be real… still, who knows (now) if it will get the same fate of T2 UHD?

So, I thought to give it a try…

UHD WEB version Vs mine:

UHD test clip 1, regraded - 1m 438MB HEVC 8bit SDR 61.2mbps no audio:

final version would be 10bit, though, I would like to be UHD-BD compliant (a dream, maybe, let’s see)

Now, would be nice if someone with an UHD TV/display could download it and give an opinion.

It looks nice on my 4K TV.

However, since it’s been years since I saw the film, and then it was the non-anamorphic DVD release, I don’t really have any basis for comparison.

The Terminator 2 UHD DNR fiasco was due to Lionsgate using the 3D master for the UHD, which was DNR’d for the 3D conversion. I don’t think The Abyss would have that problem. Though I wonder how the color would end up looking, considering how Aliens looks on blu-ray.

LG used nothing. Studio Canal did the encoding. All LG did was release it.
