When it comes to ultra-high definition entertainment, 4K UHD Blu-rays are the prime options. A 4K UHD Blu-ray is four times the size of a regular Blu-ray. This is the reason why we don’t refrain ourselves from calling them UHD discs. Slowly but surely, 4K UHD has become the ultra high definition entertainment standard of movies, web series, and even games.

 If you’re the one who likes to buy 4K UHD Blu-ray discs of newly launched or already launched movies then this tutorial is just for you. Having a BD ROM drive in your laptop or desktop is one thing and having a BD player is another. Because internal BD ROM drives are cheaper, therefore, more people prefer having it. However, it is not a convenient way to always connect your PC/laptop to your HDTV via HDMI for watching 4K UHD movies via your BD ROM drive or UHD Blu-ray ISOs. The best option is to rip your UHD Blu-ray discs or ISOs to a video format that is fully supported by your HDTV or 4K UHD TV or 4K UHD media player.

What is DVDFab UHD Ripper?

Introducing DVDFab UHD Ripper, a useful software for ripping your 4K UHD Blu-ray discs, ISOs, and folders. DVDFab UHD ripper is a ripping software which can convert UHD to video formats likes MKV, M2TS, and MP4 (1080p only). It basically provides six video outputs including 4K (MKV, M2TS), Passthrough (MKV, M2TS), SDR (MKV, MP4).

The two Passthrough formats are lossless formats which equal the original video quality on the UHD Blu-ray disc, the 4K formats shrink the original contents to a comparatively smaller size, yet still offering the best video quality possible, and the last two SDR formats can convert the HDR10 contents to flawless SDR contents without compromising too much of the natural color, including brightness, saturation, sharpness, and vividness.

DVDFab UHD Ripper proves itself exceptionally useful if you use it for 4K Passthrough conversion. Today the latest movies that you watch in theaters or UHD players are shot with HDR10. HDR10 is a camera’s hardware feature which enhances the video picture quality so that it looks real and lifelike. So, if you use 4K passthrough or any of the remaining four formats for ripping then the HDR10 quality will be preserved during conversion and you will get the same viewing experience as you were about to get from the UHD disc. But make sure that your 4K UHD TV supports HDR10. The 4K TVs that don’t support HDR10 are still covered by DVDFab UHD ripper as you can use either the simple 4K or SDR for HDR10 non-compliant 4K TVs and HDTVs. Let’s have a look on how to use the DVDFab UHD ripper and convert UHD to video.

And how can we skip the ripping speed? DVDFab uses the Intel Quick Sync, Nvidia CUDA, and AMD acceleration to boost the ripping process by many folds. So, the conversion will be blazing fast on a computer hardware with support for the above mentioned technologies.

Warm Tips: before getting down to ripping UHD Blu-ray disc, you shall check whether the firmware inside your 4K UHD drive is friendly. Otherwise, you need to downgrade the unfriendly firmware to UHD friendly drive version with UHD Drive Tool, then reboot your PC to proceed with follow-up ripping task.
