Sherwood intros BD player

Sherwood announced the introduction of its first Blu-ray Disc player, the BDP-5003, on Wednesday. The player supports BD Bonus View Profile 1.1 for picture-in-picture but not the newer 2.0 that brings with it BD-Live support by connecting to the Internet. It will play 1080p Blu-ray content at 24Hz or 60Hz, and its HDMI 1.3 outputs and onboard processing deliver lossless Dolby TrueHD and DTS Master Audio HD sound formats. As expected, the BDP-5003 will upscale standard DVDs and supports all popular disc formats.

The player has a front panel USB port in addition to component, composite, S-video and the mentioned HDMI 1.3 outputs. It will support DivX, JPEG and MP3 playback. Sound connections include coaxial and Toslink digital audio outputs along with two-channel analog outputs. Processing is via 192kHz/24-bit audio DACs, while an Ethernet port allows for firmware upgrades.

The Sherwood BDP-5003 will become available in November, priced at nearly $300.
