Panasonic and Sony Bring New Features to Blu-ray
Panasonic’s DMP-BDT360 Smart Network 3D player is equipped with both 2D-to-3D and HD-to-4K upscaling and supports the Miracast streaming platform, which allows photos, music and video stored on a smartphone to be displayed on a TV. Pricing and details on when the player will hit stores were not available.
In the Hi-Res Audio section of Sony’s sprawling booth I had to wander around for a few minutes before I discovered the BDV-N7200W 5.1 Blu-ray Home Cinema System, complete with five stylish speakers and a powered subwoofer. In addition to built-in access to music and video streaming services, the player supports hi-res music playback in a number of formats, including (naturally) Sony’s DSD. Pricing and details on when the player will hit stores were not available.
