Samsung Dates/Prices Three New Players

News from Blu-Ray.com


"

Samsung Electronics has announced prices for their three new players expected out later this year. The BD-P1400 (which will replace the current BD-P1200) will be available in September for $549. Its bigger brother, the BD-P2400, with the Silicon Optix HQV processor, will be available in October for $649. The BD-UP5000 Blu-ray/HD DVD player will be out sometime after these players for $1,049.

All three players feature HDMI v1.3 and support for the decoding of Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD. Additionally, all three will support 24fps playback. The BD-P2400 and BD-UP5000 feature the Silcon Optix HQV processor which does an excellent job upconverting DVD content (currently, the BD-P1200 has this processor, but its replacement, the BD-P1400, will not).

BD-P1400 and BD-P2400 Blu-ray Players
For a truly cinematic home theater viewing experience, Samsung's new BD player lineup offers full compatibility with 24 movie frames per second playback. Since most movies are filmed at 24 frames per second, these new Samsung Blu-ray players will be able to playback movies in their native format, significantly reducing unwanted artifacts. Setting the player's Movie Frame (24Fs) feature to ON allows the consumer to adjust the HDMI 1.3 output to 24 frames per second for a crisp, theater-like experience. Each of these players will also support 60Fs for enhanced compatibility with many of today's HDTVs.

Not only is it important for movies to look good, but also they need to sound good. Samsung's latest BD players complete consumers' HD total home theater experience with advanced HD audio decoding. Beyond standard Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus and DTS audio playback, both the BD-P2400 and BD-P1400 work with lossless formats including, dts HD and Dolby TrueHD for a variety of clear, full-bodied sound options. When coupled with both models' HDMI 1.3 connection, consumers can enjoy some of the purest sound available today.

The HDMI 1.3 connection also offers HDMI CEC (Anynet+) technology, allowing consumers to use a single remote control to operate the BD player, TV and other A/V products from Samsung. Additionally, each model is able to up-convert standard DVD discs to full HD 1080p resolution via the HDMI connection, bringing consumers' DVD movie collections into the next generation.

Finishing off the BD-P2400's expansive feature list, the built-in Silicon Optix's Hollywood Quality Video (HQV) processor, a powerful unit similar to those used by Hollywood production studios, enables true 1080i to 1080p HD de-interlacing for some of the best HD images possible even from DVD formats. It is a great option to ensure full optimization of HD and SD libraries.

For those with extensive DVD collections, the BD-P2400 and BD-P1400 models include backward compatibility with standard DVD and CD formats (including DVD-ROM, DVD-+/R, DVD-+/RW, CD, CD-R and CD-RW). Playback of multimedia content in a variety of different formats is quick and easy at 720p, 1080i and 1080p resolutions. The "Easy Top Menu" allows consumers to change font and color of subtitles and menu titles according to their tastes, as well as the background color and menu graphics. The BD-P1400 is priced at $549, and will be available in September. The BD-P2400 is priced at $649, and will be available in October. Samsung's BD-1200 Blu-ray player, which is currently available, will continue.

Headquartered in Ridgefield Park, NJ, Samsung Electronics America, Inc. (SEA), a wholly owned subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., markets a broad range of award-winning, advanced digital consumer electronics and home appliance products, including HDTVs, home theater systems, MP3 players, refrigerators and laundry machines.

The damn combo player is gonna be over a grand MSRP? Screw them. Give us dual format people a good reason to get rid of our 360 add-ons and PS3s.

That's because it costs money to develop a player and get it to the market. They're trying to bring in as much money as possible on the previous player to make up for it.

So do any of these players have the final Blu-ray spec? If so, it's a buy. I want a player, but I want one that will not be obsolete come Oct 31.
