Oppo Digital intros BDP-93 Blu-ray player
Oppo Digital has announced its latest Blu-ray player, the BDP-93. It will succeed the BDP-83 that was sent out to a select few back in 2009, and get all of its features as well as support for Blu-ray 3D specification including dual HDMI 1.4a outputs, Netflix Watch Instantly functionality and Blockbuster on Demand. Wi-Fi and an eSATA port are also part of the features.
Unlike the BDP-83, the new player uses a custom Oppo decoder and a Marvell Kyoto-G2 Qdeo video processor rather than one from Anchor Bay Technologies. Users can reduce video noise, compression artifacts, adjust color, contrast, detail and edge enhancements with the new player as well. Video output resolutions range from 480i through to 1080p and support native 24FPS playback for some movies.
The location of subtitles can be shifted on the screen, there are a few zoom modes to choose from and even a vertical shift feature. Both NTSC and PAL systems are supported, with conversion from one to the other available. As for audio, there is both Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio support.
The BDP-93 will cost the same $500 as the BDP-83 it replaces. Interested parties can sign up for updates on when the player will ship. [via Blu-ray]
