Onkyo Corporation today announced plans to launch its first HD DVD player for the North American market in 2007. HD DVD is the next generation DVD format approved by the DVD Forum.
Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD 5.1 channel audio processing formats are supported by HD DVD, which allows you to enjoy a high quality home theater experience. HD DVD also will offer content and features such as active menus and PinP video adopted by HD DVD.
Onkyo will introduce an HD DVD player initially in the North American market, and then plans to further expand to other markets. Onkyo also plans to develop AV receivers as part of its HD DVD line.
Details of the Onkyo HD DVD player for North America, including a photo (that’s their DV-SP404 pictured) launch timing, specifications and specifics of the launch in other regions along with future AV receivers will be announced separately.
