Samsung HD DVD Blu-ray duo player coming in fall
The on Blu-ray and HD DVD are already a wanted technology, so the companies manufactured them are in a real competition launching the products.
The idea of a dual-format player seems to be a simple one, though in practice it appears that bringing such a machine to market isn’t an easy task. Samsung is up to the challenge, and in April announced a duo player, dubbed the BDP-UP5000, that will be supporting both formats in one box.
“Consumers are hungry for more HD content but are currently confused about competing formats. Samsung’s Duo HD player will allow consumers access to every HD movie title available regardless of the authoring format,” said Dongsoo Jun, executive VP of the Digital AV Division at Samsung Electronics. “Samsung is committed to making life simpler through technology and will market next generation DVD products which will satisfy the consumer and market requirement. This is a big win for the consumer.”
The company announced that its dual-format player will be ready to hit market in October or November. Samsung plans to display the product at the IFA tradeshow this August.
