Philips to introduce UK Blu-ray player

March 25th, 2008 · No Comments

Philips will launch its first UK Blu-ray player, but not until October. Despite the delayed introduction, its BDP7200 will not be BD Live compliant. The unit is Profile 1.1 ‘Bonus View’ only. Standard BD features apply, including 1080p video and multi-channel audio output.
According to US market research firm ABI Research, it could take as long as 18 months before Blu-ray players can equal the price and functionality that HD DVD hardware had when Toshiba pulled the plug on the format earlier this year.
