Two new home cinema systems and 3D upconverting Blu-ray player unveiled.
Sony has just pulled the wrappers off of three new Blu-ray systems. The BDV-EF200 and BDV-L600 are complete Blu-ray 2.1 home cinema packages, while the new BDP-S780 Blu-ray player can upscale your bog-standard 2D pics into glorious 3D.
The BDV-EF200 and BDV-L600 both pack in Sony’s Bravia Internet Video software, so you can access the likes of YouTube and BBC iPlayer direct. There’s also the chance to tap into and rent films from Lovefilm, as well as get the latest headlines via Sky News’s dedicated TV app.
Both packages come with Sony’s S-Force 3D virtual surround sound tech, as well as two HDMI ports and even an iPod dock for checking out tunes and clips stashed on your Apple jukebox. The BDV-L600 can be wall-mounted or stood vertically too.
If you’re not after a full-on home cinema system, then the BDP-S780 is an ace compromise. It comes with 3D up-conversion skills, Skype access and Wi-Fi, not to mention noise reduction tech to ensure low quality web video is upscaled and looks the part.
