LG BH200 Player Ships

Launching its device after a two-month delay, LG today shipped out its BH200 HD movie player. The new take on the Super Multi Blu reader is the first device capable of reading the full specs of both Blu-Ray and HD DVD titles; unlike the BH100 from last year, the new model can support picture-in-picture special features from Blu-ray's Final Standard Profile only just reaching the market. It also includes an Ethernet jack to support Internet features on HD DVD discs today and future Blu-Ray movies. It also adds HDMI 1.3 with deep color support for newer HDTVs and more advanced 7.1-channel surround systems.

The BH200 also supports HDMI's new CEC standard for controlling the video inputs of a TV through the player and will upscale DVDs up to 1080p if the TV supports the resolution. A USB port on the front allows music and photos from jumpdrives and external hard disks. Despite drops in the price of Blu-Ray players to $300 or less, LG maintains the price the second edition of the Super Multi Blu at $999.
