Toshiba, which ended up on the wrong side of the Blu-ray Disc and HD DVD battle, has joined now the winning Blu-ray team for the first time with its new player, the BDX2000.
“Toshiba is a technology leader in high definition products,” Toshiba’s Digital AV Group VP of marketing, Jodi Sally, said. “From listening to our consumers we know they demand access to full high-definition content. With the introduction of our BDX2000 we are offering consumers what they want with a breath-taking HD viewing experience to meet the needs of today’s home theater.”
Using Toshiba’s REGZA-LINK function, the new BDX2000 can connect with a REGZA LCD TV via a HDMI cable and display full high-definition content with a single remote control. It also features a SD card slot and supports BD-Live (Profile 2.0).
The product’s industrial design is faceted with a smoked mirrored front panel, and the player’s front-panel dropdown door conceals the player’s primary functions, allowing for a smooth, clean facade.
Additional product features include AVCHD playback, enhanced audio formats from Dolby True HD and DTS-HD Master Audio and Essential Playback, Bonus View, and ENERGY STAR Certification. It will be available in November, for an MSRP of $249.99
