Sony to Release MegaChangers
Sony on Thursday announced the coming release of three new Blu-ray Disc players, including two "MegaChanger" models and a separate, standalone Blu-ray Disc player.
The two MegaChanger players, the BDP-CX7000ES and BDP-CX960, can both play 400 discs, including Blu-ray Discs, DVDs and CDs. The players can also locate metadata using Gracenote's MusicID and VideoID products. Both sport full HD 1080/60p and 24p True Cinema, as well as ability to play various video formats. The CX-7000ES ("Elevated Standard") adds Sony's new Reality Enhancer, Super Bit Mapping, and Precision Drive HD technology.
The two MegaChanger products will sell for $1,900 and $800, respectively, and will arrive this fall.
The single-disc BDP-S1000ES Blu-ray Disc player also sports the new technologies, plus BD-Live, in addition to full HD 1080/60p and 24p True Cinema. It will arrive in August for $700.
