Panasonic DMP-BDT210 3D Blu-ray Disc Player Receives Two CES Innovations 2011 Awards
Panasonic’s DMP-BDT210 Full HD 3D Blu-ray Disc Player with 2D-to-3D up-conversion can convert 2D images from DVDs and Blu-ray discs into 3D with natural depth perception. Its 3D Enhancer and Depth Controller produces movie theater-style 3D effects. Also contributing to higher picture quality is the new UniPhier chip, which simultaneously lowers power consumption. Vertical color data has also been increased by 1.5 times, to express fine details and nuances in movie scenes with the PHL Reference Chroma Processor 2. The new HDMI Jitter Purifier improves sound quality, delivering pure and robust bass sound reproduction with minimal noise compared to previous models.
The newest addition to VIERA CAST™*, Panasonic’s proprietary Internet solution, on the DMP-BDT210 is the video/voice communication service, Skype™. With this new application and camera (purchased separately), users can engage in long distance video/voice conversations with family and friends right from their TV. Panasonic has made it even easier to access this through the Blu-ray Disc player with a devoted Skype button on the remote control. Other features of Skype include Standby Mode, Video mail, which allows users to create a personalized greeting message when away, and automatically records Video mail messages left onto an SD card.
The award-winning model is also DLNA-certified, allowing users to enjoy content on their Blu-ray Disc player from a computer or other DLNA compatible device. An app available on the iTunes® store will allow users to access select and control DLNA content using their iPad™**, iPhone® or iPodTouch® device as well.
