DVD players, no doubt, are still more popular than the more advanced Blu-ray Players are. However, when Panasonic’s stand alone Blu-ray Player hits the market later this month, consumers will make a beeline for the product. Panasonic DMP-B15 will be the first, and so far the sole portable Blu-ray disc player in the world.
Panasonic DMP-B15 features
Panasonic DMP-B15 is packed with features, which are needed by a stand-alone Blu-ray player. This Blu-ray player features an 8.9-inch WSVGA LCD display to produce sharp images compatible with 1080p viewing offered by Blu-ray players.
Instant access to the internet will be possible with Panasonic’s own VIERA CAST and BD Live features. Users can access over 40,000 titles from Amazon Video-on-Demand. You can also instantly access Bloomberg, YouTube and Picasa. The best part of incorporating VIERA CAST in DMP-B15 is that your need for a set top box ceases. This is a free service. You have to connect to the internet through the LAN port. Gradually new web sites will be added to enrich your experience further. VIERA CAST had earlier featured in other Panasonic Blu-ray players. It instantly converts a television set into an IPTV, allowing you instant access to certain web sites.
Among other Panasonic Blu-ray players, DMP-B15 will produce the best quality image. You will see accurate colors of images with improved color data technology. The high-end image processing technology, using PHL Reference Chroma Processor Plus, will help in precise processing of each video signal received by the Blu-ray player.
Besides the ease of carrying DMP-B15 anywhere on earth, you can connect it to a HDTV with the help of HDMI cable. In order to have some great acoustic experience, you have the option of connecting your DMP-B15 to the HD-Audio compatible AV receiver of your home theatre speaker system. Extra storage space is offered by the SD memory card slot. The headrest bracket of DMP-B15 is designed for comfortable car travel with the portable Blu-ray player.
