HT-BD2 Home Theater Solution with Blu-ray

Samsung also introduced the HT-BD2 Home Theater solution. The HT-BD2 7.1 channel HD receiver / speaker system provides rich sound. A fully powered subwoofer, accentuated by five tower and two satellite rear speakers, gives the HT-BD2 a rumbling 1,100 Watts of total output power to keep movie and audio fans satisfied all from a sleek and single component system that makes operating any function easy. The HT-BD2's Blu-ray player offers full compatibility with 24 movie frames per second playback. Since most movies are filmed at 24 frames per second, the HT-BD2 will be able to playback movies in their native format, significantly reducing unwanted artifacts. Setting the player's Movie Frame (24Fs) feature to ON allows the consumer to adjust the HDMI 1.3 output to 24 frames per second. The HT-BD2 also supports 60Fs for enhanced compatibility with many of today's HDTVs. It is priced at $1,499 and will be available in the 4th quarter.

BD-P1400 and BD-P2400 Blu-ray Players

Beyond standard Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus and DTS audio playback, both the BD-P2400 and BD-P1400 work with lossless formats including, dts HD and Dolby TrueHD for a variety of clear sound options.

The HDMI 1.3 connection also offers HDMI CEC (Anynet+) technology, allowing consumers to use a single remote control to operate the BD player, TV and other A/V products from Samsung. Additionally, each model is able to up-convert standard DVD discs to full HD 1080p resolution via the HDMI connection, bringing consumers' DVD movie collections into the next generation.

Finishing off the BD-P2400's feature list, the built-in Silicon Optix's Hollywood Quality Video (HQV) processor, a powerful unit similar to those used by Hollywood production studios, enables true 1080i to 1080p HD de-interlacing for some of the best HD images possible ? even from DVD formats. It is a great option to ensure full optimization of HD and SD libraries.

Bothhe BD-P2400 and BD-P1400 models also include backward compatibility with standard DVD and CD formats (including DVD-ROM, DVD-+/R, DVD-+/RW, CD, CD-R and CD-RW). Playback of multimedia content in a variety of different formats is quick and easy at 720p, 1080i and 1080p resolutions. The "Easy Top Menu" allows consumers to change font and color of subtitles and menu titles according to their tastes, as well as the background color and menu graphics. The BD-P1400 is priced at $549, and will be available in September. The BD-P2400 is priced at $649, and will be available in October. Samsung's BD-1200 Blu-ray player, which is currently available, will continue.
