Pioneer announced today the introduction of the BDP-LX70, a Blu-ray Disc Player, for the Japanese market.
Pioneer has decided to release its Blu-ray Disc player in Japan, following its first entry to the North American market last year.
The Pioneer BDP-LX70 is capable of reproducing the high definition details impossible with DVD or the delicate nuance that cannot be rendered in high-definition broadcasts.
The Home Media Gallery, a DLNA CERTIFIED Local Area Network(LAN) function, allows the user to connect the Bru-ray Disc player to a personal computer and play the video, music, or photos that are stored on the computer. These files can be enjoyed in high-quality video and sound through the user's A/V equipment.
The Pioneer Bru-ray Disc player also supports next-generation audio formats including Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby TrueHD, and is capable of LPCM 7.1-channel playback.
The Pioneer Blu-ray Disc Player BDP-LX70 will be available in Japan in late June, 2007 for a suggested retail price of 170,000 yen (including tax).
