Sony has jumped onto the Blu-ray player as video streamer bandwagon.
The company introduced the Profile 2.0 BDP-N460 Networked Blu-ray Player at CEDIA Expo 2009 in Atlanta, and the feature set will sound familiar to those who may have looked at LG’s BD390.
The BDP-N460 features access to YouTube and to Bravia Internet Video. Sony says Netflix streaming will be added later in the fall.
The BDP-N460 doesn’t feature Wi-Fi, but it comes with built-in software for a $95 Linksys Wi-Fi dongle.
Other features include:
- Full HD 1080/60p and 24p True Cinema output
- 7.1 channel Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus, DTS-HD High Resolution Audio, and DTS-HD Master Audio
- 7.1 channel L-PCM via HDMI after decoding
- Upscaling of 480i signals to “near HD quality”
The BDP-N460 also supports Deep Color video output and x.v.Color technology. Also included is an external port for local storage, and a front USB port to display photos.
Look for it in October with an MSRP of $250.
