Sony’s new Blu-ray player integrates streaming Internet video

MUMBAI: Offering the best of full HD 1080p and streaming Internet video, Sony today introduced the BDP-N460 networked Blu-ray Disc player.

Beside playing Blu-ray Discs and DVDs, the device instantly streams premium and free on-demand entertainment from the BRAVIA Internet Video platform including thousands of movies, TV programs, and music from YouTube, Slacker, and, later this fall, Netflix.

"Whether its Full HD 1080p or streaming video and audio from the Internet, entertainment comes in so many flavors that consumers want choice. Leading the entertainment experience, Sony brings the best of both worlds together in one player that offers more content than other stand-alone devices on the market," said Sony Electronics’ home audio and video business vice president Chris Fawcett.

The BDP-N460 Blu-ray Disc/DVD/CD player delivers full HD 1080/60p and 24p True Cinema output, decodes the latest advanced audio codecs, and is BD-LIVE capable with your broadband internet connection and purchase of external memory.

Since many consumers own extensive DVD movie libraries, the BDP-N460 incorporates Sony’s Precision Cinema HD Upscale technology that converts standard-definition signals (480i) to near HD quality.

Additionally, the model features Sony’s Precision Drive technology, which helps to detect and correct wobbling discs from three directions, supporting stabilization of warped or scratched Blu-ray Discs and DVDs during playback.

Available in October, the BDP-N460 is priced at $250.
