Asus launches 2 new Blu-ray players
Dubai, September 22, 2011
Asus has launched two complete Blu-ray media player devices that enable accessible and easy to use HD video and audio alongside the widest media format support available in their product class.
The O!Play BDS-500 and BDS-700 includes a variety of added features, such as dual HDMI and USB ports, a custom user friendly interface, smartphone remote control, and gold-plated terminals, a statement said.
Both new models ship with Qdeo video processing to reduce image scatter without adversely affecting sharpness.
Colour and contrast are also improved and optimized for a more lifelike picture and increased viewing immersion. Complete support for Blu-ray Disc ISO and Blu-ray Disc 3D ISO (including menus) is also provided, and precision upscaling of DVDs to HD comes ready right out of the box, the statement said.
The stereo digital-analog converter (DAC) on the BDS-700 puts out SNR 115dB audio, the only device in its class capable of such high clarity and fidelity.
Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio standards are offered, with 100 per cent lossless 7.1-channel output that is perfect for movie watching as well as music enjoyment.
Consistent quality over the product’s lifespan is bolstered by the use of gold-plated terminals, which do not age or oxidize as do components shielded by cheaper metals.
The BDS-500 and BDS-700 maintain complete compatibility with 45 popular formats and standards, more than any competing Blu-ray product.
As online-capable media devices, the BDS-500 ships Wi-Fi-ready, while the BDS-700 comes with integrated Wi-Fi.
To ensure true HDMI 1.4 performance, the BDS-700 comes with dual dedicated HDMI outputs, one HDMI 1.4 port for 3D video, and another HDMI 1.3 port for audio. – TradeArabia News Service
