Onkyo Announces First Blu-Ray Player
Onkyo Corp. has announced its first Blu-ray Disc Player, which is set for release late this year. No pricing information or exact release date has yet been announced.
Onkyo had announced their plans to abandon the HD-DVD format to develop a Blu-ray player in the final days of the format war. The release of this Blu-ray Disc player will be timely since Onkyo’s second-generation of high-definition capable receivers are now available.
The player is designed to collaborate with Onkyo’s high-definition A/V receivers fitted with full HDMI processing of 1080p video, and decoding of Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio surround sound formats.
Onkyo was one of the first home theater developers to offer full audio and video processing capabilities for HD formats such as Blu-ray Disc. . For more information, visit www.onkyo.com
