Now that Toshiba has embraced Blu-ray and joined the Blu-ray Disc Association, it has announced its first standalone Blu-ray player, the BDX2000.
As you’d expect from any modern Blu-ray player, it incorporates all the latest features including BD-Live Profile 2.0 support, for full interactivity on compatible discs, full 1080p output including upscaling of standard definition content, support for advanced HD audio including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, and Deep Colour.
Toshiba has also put its own REGZA-LINK functionality into the player, meaning that it’s possible to control it and other compatible equipment from a single remote control unit.
Unfortunately, for anyone thinking of swapping out their old HD DVD player for this new sleek beauty, or wanting to see just how well Toshiba has moved to the Blu side, they’ll have to wait until December when it’s launched.
Price to be confirmed: let’s hope it’s competitive.
