Default More Details on Samsung Third-Gen Players

This has been discussed in other threads, but I thought it deserved its own.

From our just posted story (http://www.highdefdigest.com/news/show/763):

Quote:
Samsung has revealed new details (including a new model, pricing and release date guidence) for its planned third-gen Blu-ray players, but BD-J audio/video support remains an open question.

As we first reported yesterday, the previously-announced BD-P1400 will feature 1080p output capability, full HDMI v1.3 support and in-board Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD audio decoding. Samsung now says the player will hit stores in September at a suggested retail price of 549.

In October, the manufacturer will release a second third-gen player -- the BD-P2400 -- which will feature everything included in the BD-P1400, plus Samsung's proprietary de-interlacing technology, powered by the company's HQV (Hollywood Quality Video) image processor. Samsung has set a retail price of $549 for the higher-end model.

It's worth noting that the Blu-ray Disc Association has mandated that Blu-ray hardware manufacturers include BD-J audio/video support in all new players released after October 31st, 2007. This technology will power more advanced interactive features like Warner's "In Movie Experience," which the format-neutral studio currently only offers on its HD DVD discs.

No word yet on whether Samsung's planned third-gen players will include BD-J audio/video support, but if the company sticks to its current release guidence in the September/October timeframe, it won't be required.

Man, I hate when specs say it supports DTS-HD. Why can't they just specify whether or not they are talking about DTS-HD Master Audio?

I think there's a typo in your story. In Engadget's story it says the low end model is $549 and the high end is $649. In your story it says both models are $549.

They are reffering to DTS-HD, which is a higher resolution bitrate DTS track. It is similar to DD+. As for DTS-HD Master Audio, I doubt it.

Are there any disc that just have DTS-HD on them? Aren't they all DTS-HD MA? Or most of them, anyway.

I think there is a typo there. It is reported elsewhere that the BDP-2400 is $599 and the BDP-1400 is $549.

This story says the BDP-1400 is $549 and the "higher-end model" is also $549.

see this is what bothers me the fact that even with this 3rd generation machine if they release it before october 31 they wont have to nclude BD-J audio/video support.

this is one of the reasons why i was glad i returned the phillips bluray i bought a few mths back.

if i decide to try bluray again i want to make sure iam getting something that 3 mths down the road will still be compatible with new titles they are releaseing.
