Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America Inc. (MDEA) will introduce a line of Internet-enabled televisions this year integrating VUDU Apps, a platform for the delivery of Internet entertainment services.
VUDU Apps on Mitsubishi televisions will feature the HD on-demand movie service, called “VUDU Streaming Movie Service,” which is currently supported on select Mitsubishi Unisen Immersive Sound televisions.
Mitsubishi’s 2010 line of Internet-enabled televisions will provide access to more than 100 Apps, ranging from news services to popular Internet sites, directly on its televisions via VUDU Apps. VUDU has announced that Vudu Apps to be introduced in 2010 will include:
• Popular Internet sites including Pandora, Dailymotion, Picasa and Flickr
• Leading News Services, such as The New York Times, Associated Press, and NBC
• Popular Video Podcasts including Revision3 and DiggNation
• VUDU Movies, featuring the world’s largest catalog of HD movies with more than 3,000 movies and HDX, the only streaming 1080p HD video with high resolution 5.1 Dolby Digital Plus surround sound available directly on Internet-connected televisions
VUDU Apps’ cloud architecture will allow Mitsubishi Internet-enabled TV owners to access the latest VUDU Apps without the need to download or install new software. MDEA plans to include VUDU Apps on all Internet-enabled HDTVs this year.
