Press release, May 16; Eric Mah, DIGITIMES

Panasonic has announced the availability of the company's next generation Blu-ray Disc (BD) player, the DMP- BD10A.

The DMP-BD10A features an audio upgrade package that brings high-end surround audio to the viewing experience via the inclusion of 7.1 channel surround, Dolby True HD and 'dts-HD ' High Resolution Audio decoding technology, according to Panasonic. The DMP-BD10A also incorporates Panasonic's proprietary EZ-Sync system for integrated one-touch operation of Panasonic home-theater components.

In addition to playing pre-recorded BD movie discs, the DMP-BD10A plays conventional standard-definition DVDs (with automatic 1080p up-conversion via HDMI) and conventional CDs. Other key features of the DMP-BD10A include proprietary P4HD technology for performing IP conversion at the pixel level for ultra-fine details, a 297MHz 14bit Video D/A converter with 4X oversampling, video noise shaping that improves signal-to-noise ratios by shifting noise to an unused band, and theoretical support for nearly 4400 billion colors. The DMP-BD10A also incorporates Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby Digital and dts decoding, and BD-J (Java application) interactive capability.

The Panasonic DMP-BD10A comes bundled with five BD movies and is selling at a suggested retail price of US$599.95.
