This third time is definitely a charm. Samsung’s third-generation Blu-ray Disc players were introduced last week, bringing your home theater experience even closer to reproducing the actual cinema experience in video and audio quality.

Samsung’s BD-P2400 and BD-P1400 offer full compatibility with 24 movie frames per second playback, essentially mimicking the true film’s native format. You can set the Movie Frame (24Fs) feature to ON and adjust the HDMI 1.3 output to 24 frames per second for an absolutely crisp image. Both players also support 60Fs for enhanced compatibility with many of today’s HDTVs. 

For audio, the players feature advanced HD audio decoding for lossless formats including DTS HD and Dolby TrueHD for the purest possible sound, Samsung says, when coupled with the players’ HDMI 1.3 connection. The HDMI 1.3 connection also offers HDMI CEC (Anynet+) technology, so you can use a single remote control to operate the BD player, TV and other A/V products from Samsung.

Also, watching your vast library of standard DVDs will be improved, since they can be upconverted to full HD 1080p resolution, the company says. Additionally, the BD-P2400’s feature list includes the built-in Hollywood Quality Video (HQV) processor, a unit similar to those used by Hollywood production studios, which enables true 1080i to 1080p HD de-interlacing for the best HD images possible, Samsung says.

The BD-P1400 is expected to be available in September with an MSRP of $549; the BD-P2400 will arrive in October at $649. Go to www.samsung.com for more.
