    UHD Format with Surround Sound

    Can anyone help me with my search?  I'm looking for a video format for UHD with Surround Sound for passing files to my customers which can be plugged into a UHD TV and played.  I have Avid, Resolve and Vegas editors So far I have managed to produce a file using Vegas which looks promising,- their "Magic AAC/AVC MP4" format works well with the exception of surround sound,- it's stereo only.  Since Hollywood seems to be denying us UHD BluRay I'd welcome any other options anyone is aware of.

    if dealing with this professionally its worth being clear on terminology. Its unlikely you are providing 4K (DCI) much more likely its UHD. And we do have UHD Blurays already.

    Re: 4K Format with Surround Sound

    Thank you for your reply.  You are correct: I was thinking UHD rather than DCI, though it is highly unlikely that any of my customers would have DCI native TV sets (and pretty unlikely that they'd have Atmos at least for the present)!

    UHD BluRay is a nightmare: new PC system needed with Kaby lake processor, new disc writer of which only two exist, blank discs hard to locate, very limited software availability and I bet I'd have surround sound issues there, anyway!

    My customers may have UHD TVs and request what they consider to be 4K so I'm still looking for a solution..
