Panasonic to unveil two new Blu-ray players
Debuting at CEDIA Expo 2008 will be the latest Blu-ray Disc players from Panasonic; The DMP-BD35 and the DMP-BD55.
Both players will feature BD2.0 BD-Live support. This is very welcome indeed. They will have the updated Panasonic Hollywood Labs (PHL) Reference Chroma Processor Plus for enhanced video clarity. An SD memory card slot is included to save BD-Live content as well as view photos and HD video.
The DMP-BD55 stands apart by including 7.1 analog outputs as well as on board decoding of advanced audio codecs. Additionally, a 96Hz Surround Re-Master feature will enhance Blu-ray soundtracks. The BD55 will also receive audiophile grade components and vibration absorbent feet. Clearly the BD55 is aimed at the consumer who finds audio quality as important as video.
Prices are not available on these players at this time. They will be in stores in time for the holiday season.
