Panasonic launches new DMP-BDT100 3D Blu-ray player
Panasonic unveiled a new full HD 3D Blu-ray player this week that could expand their lineup to a wider range of consumers. The new DMP-BDT100 model is similar to the DMP-BDT300 player that the company launched earlier this year, but cuts out some features which should allow them to reach a more desirable entry-level price point.
The Panasonic BDT100 3D Blu-ray player differs from the higher-end BDT300 by only having a single HDMI output. It also lacks the Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) and wireless dongle that are both included with the BDT300.
The BDT100 is still a feature-rich Blu-ray player, however, and is Wi-fi-ready despite the fact that the LAN adapter is not shipped with it. It has the ability to up-convert standard-definition to 1080p and can produce Full HD 3D images to compatible HD displays. The BDT100 also includes a USB port and an integrated SD card slot.
Users with a broadband connection will have access to Panasonic’s VIERA Cast on-demand streaming service to get content from Netflix, Amazon Video on Demand, YouTube, Picasa, and Twitter on their television.
Panasonic is also touting an improved power-on from standby feature that allows the BDT100 to boot up in .05 second. This is something new with the BDT100 that was not present in previous Panasonic models.
Unfortunately, the price for the DMP-BDT100 has not yet been announced, but we should find out soon since the new 3D Blu-ray player is set to ship in August. The price should be lower than its big brother, the DMP-BDT300, which currently retails for $399.
