Harman Kardon BD player

Just over a month after it was announced for the European market under a slightly different name, Harman Kardon's first Blu-ray disc player, the BDP-1, got an officially confirmation of its arrival in North America on Tuesday. The HD disc player will feature BD-Live compatibility via an Ethernet jack to access extra movie content and other features online. It supports a film-speed 24FPS without pulldown and upscales DVDs to 1080p.

Audio file support includes MP3 and WMA tracks, while LPCM, Dolby Digital, Dolby TrueHD, DTS, and DTS-HD Master Audio surround sound formats are backed. A front-mounted USB port lets users play back JPG slideshows accompanied by MP3 soundtracks from flash memory sticks or external hard drives. This also acts to extend the storage capacity for BD-Live content.

Retail pricing for the BDP-1 is expected to be set at $499 when it launches later in June. [via Twice]
