LG BD100 Blu-ray player
LG has revealed the BD100, its first production Blu-ray player, says Pocket-lint. The 100 should play dual- and single-layer Blu-ray discs, as well as standard CD and DVD formats. Audio inputs will support 5.1 surround and digital optical out, while video inputs will include HDMI, component, composite and coaxial. Resolutions will be upsamplable to as high as 1080p. This is not LG's first attempt at a Blu-ray player -- the initial model was intended to be the BD199, but deployment of the unit was cancelled. The 100 should ship in the first quarter of 2007 at a "competitive" price.
