Panasonic BD50 player

One of the focuses of Panasonic's CES lineup is the DMP-BD50, a forthcoming Blu-Ray player. The main addition to the unit is support for BD-Live, through an unspecified type of Internet connection; as discs are released with BD-Live features, people will be able to access online extras directly from the player, including multiplayer games. The BD50 also features built-in decoders for DTS-HD and Dolby TrueHD, in surround-sound formats up to 7.1 channels.

The player also boasts Panasonic's Uniphier video processor, and an integrated SD card slot. The latter is not intended for music or movies however, but rather viewing photos without having to connect a camera directly to a TV. Panasonic does not currently have a release date for the BD50, nor does it have a price.
