Built-in Wi-Fi-n for Faster, Wider Wireless Performance:
Wi-Fi-n, also known as IEEE 802.11n, is the new wireless network standard. It includes many new options to improve the quality of the wireless link, offering faster speed and wider range compared to previous Wi-Fi standards. Wi-Fi-n also features backward compatibility, which makes it possible for this player to transmit to and receive from routers that operate on older Wi-Fi standards.
Blu-ray Disc Playback for Sharp Images in Full HD 1080p:
Blu-ray Discs have the capacity to carry high definition data, along with pictures in the 1920 x 1080 resolution that defines full high definition images. Scenes come to life as details leap at you, movements smoothen, and images turn crystal clear. Blu-ray also delivers uncompressed surround sound - so your audio experience becomes unbelievably real. The high storage capacity of Blu-ray Discs also allows a host of interactive possibilities to be built in. Seamless navigation during playback and other exciting features like pop-up menus bring a whole new dimension to home entertainment.
DVD Video Upscaling to 1080p via HDMI for Near-HD Images:
HDMI 1080p upscaling delivers images that are crystal clear. DVD movies in standard definition can now be enjoyed in high definition resolution - ensuring more details and more true-to-life pictures. Progressive Scan (represented by "p" in "1080p') eliminates the line structure prevalent on TV screens, again ensuring relentlessly sharp images. To top it off, HDMI makes a direct digital connection that can carry uncompressed digital HD video as well as digital multi-channel audio, without conversions to analog - delivering perfect picture and sound quality, completely free from noise.
EasyLink to Control All HDMI CEC Devices via a Single Remote:
EasyLink lets you control multiple devices like DVD players, Blu-ray players, soundbar speaker, Home theater and TV's etc. with one remote. It uses HDMI CEC industry-standard protocol to share functionality between devices through the HDMI cable. With one touch of a button, you can operate all your connected HDMI CEC enabled equipment simultaneously. Functions like standby and play can now be carried out with absolute ease.
