I have seen these written in different ways in the disc description sections and wonder if there is a consensus opinion as to what people prefer and would like to be the semi-official wording.

I like the first one (4K Ultra HD) because most of these releases have the words "4K Ultra HD – Blu-ray" or "4K Ultra HD – Blu-ray – DVD" at the top of the box so that would fit with the findings in the poll about the Blu-ray format.

"4K Ultra HD", "Ultra HD" or "UHD" just describe the resolution (3840×2160). If we use those we would have to change all "Blu-ray"s to "HD" or "Full HD" or "FHD" and "DVD"s to "SD".

The medium itself is an Ultra HD Blu-ray: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultra_HD_Blu-ray
Like the Blu-ray (Disc) or the DVD.

If we want to do it similar to the mentioned poll, it has to be "4K Ultra HD Blu-ray", "Ultra HD Blu-ray" or "UHD Blu-ray".

UHD or Ultra HD by themselves doesn't mean a thing without 4K in front of it. Once 8K hits the market harder it won't let you know which is which.

8K Blu-ray will just be Extremely HD (EHD) Blu-ray.

Keeping in mind, that physical disc will disapear, 4K UHD without the Blu-Ray is still not an identifier...

I've started using 4K Ultra HD (and Blu-ray) to match the media types in Filters.

That's what I have been doing for a while and why I think 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray make the most sense for the disc information slots. It is my interpretation that we describe in the format in those cases, and things like the episode numbers in others.

It sounds like the most likely outcome, on the flipside though they also said that about books when the computer came out. I definitely think discs may become even more niche than they are now but there will always be people who prefer the physical version, either for collectors like us or for roadtrips and stuff with no internet
