Harman Kardon does Blu-ray

Harman Kardon today announced its support for the Blu-ray video standard, and confirmed this by hinting at a standalone player, which will cost approximately 500 (~$980). While details were scarce about the Blu-ray player, a spokesman for the company adds that it will release additional players, including all-in-one AV systems, according to What Hi-Fi?. In addition, the forthcoming DVC 600 combination Blu-ray/HDD recorder will be able to record up to eight channels of standard or high-definition TV to a 1 Terabyte hard drive.

The DVC 600 can also record a ninth time-shifted channel, and can play through a tenth for live viewing. DVD- and CD-playing are supported, while an optional DVD- and Blu-ray burner is available as well.

720p video upscaling is supported, and can connect to home theatre systems through a range of inputs, such as DVI, USB, and analogue A/V connections.

A 500GB capacity model will also be available, dubbed the DVC 300.
