Panasonic Announce Final Standard Profile Player
Digital TV Design Line are reporting the announcement of the ‘first’ standalone Final Standard Profile player. The Panasonic DMP-BD30 will feature 24 fps 1080p output along with the FSP capabilities.
Another interesting addition is the SD card reader, allowing pictures and AVCHD content to be viewed from SD cards. The player also features HDMI 1.3 and will allow bitstream output for Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD:MA streams.
Panasonic are also claiming to be the first to use 45 nm LSI in a consumer electronics device.
The player will retail for $499.95, no doubt putting pressure on pricing for other Blu-ray players. Edit: Home Media Magazine is reporting a street date of November 5.
