CES: LG BD590 Blu-ray Player Comes with 250GB HDD, Supports CD Archiving


LG today introduced its 2010 family of Network Blu-ray Disc Players and Home Theater Systems.

Leading the line-up being unveiled this week at the International Consumer Electronics Show is the first Blu-ray Disc player to feature an integrated 250-gigabyte (GB) hard drive, allowing for easy storage and instant playback of music, photos, personal videos and online movies from VUDU.

Incorporating LG's NetCast Entertainment Access, the entire line of Blu-ray Disc players and home theater systems offer consumers access to an array of entertainment content options with the largest variety of content options for consumers. NetCast Entertainment Access allows instant access to Netflix, CinemaNow, VUDU, YouTube and Pandora. New content partners for 2010 include the Picasa photo service and forecasts from AccuWeather.

To take full advantage of the Blu-ray format, LG's Network Blu-ray players also provide convenient access to BD Live. Also included are Bonus View features which provide picture-in-picture access to Blu-ray Disc special features, allowing consumers to toggle between their favorite movie scenes and bonus features on the disc. For those with a library full of both standard and Blu-ray titles, LG's players utilize 1080p upscaling of standard DVDs.

Leading LG's 2010 portfolio of Network Blu-ray Disc Players is model BD590 ? the only Blu-ray Disc player to feature an integrated hard drive. With its built-in 250GB hard drive, LG's BD590 enables consumers to consolidate their digital media files in a single device. Consumers can quickly copy and archive their CD music collection onto the BD590 by making use of the product's MusicID feature powered by Gracenote.



For the first time in any home Blu-ray product, the BD590 will feature Gracenote's MusicID-Stream, which allows consumers to hear a song playing in a movie or TV show by simply pressing a button on their remote control. Gracenote then returns rich information on the song, such as artist and genre, along with album cover art. Photos or personal videos that may have been scattered throughout the home on PCs or digital cameras can now be imported via the USB or Ethernet port.

Consumers also will enjoy built-in Wi-Fi connectivity that allows consumers flexibility when installing a home entertainment system by connecting directly to any existing 802.11n wireless home network. Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) functionality expands entertainment options by enabling easier access to family videos and pictures stored on other DLNA-enabled systems, allowing consumers to enjoy their favorite memories on the big HDTV screen, rather than smaller computer monitors.

At the forefront of LG's new line of Network Blu-ray Disc Home Theater Systems is the LHB975. Offering a sleek audio-visual solution with 3-channel wireless speaker technology, the LHB975 provides consumers access to services such as Netflix, VUDU, CinemaNow, YouTube, Pandora, Picasa and AccuWeather via wired Ethernet or Wi-Fi network connectivity. With 1100 watts of output power to 5.1 channels featuring LG's silk dome speaker technology, this Blu-ray Home Theater System generates a dynamic surround-sound experience. Two wireless rear speakers and subwoofer complete the package, giving consumers the flexibility to place them anywhere in the room. In addition, the tall and slim front speakers can be positioned as either floor-standing or mounted on the wall with included wall-mounting brackets.

The LHB975 features LG's 3-channel wireless speaker technology, which utilizes digital spread spectrum operation for better signal quality and consistent high-quality audio performance.

The dual HDMI (version 1.3) inputs can also deliver great audio performance and convenient connectivity for devices such as cable boxes or game systems in a simple, easy-to-use format.

Also on display this week as part of LG's full line of Network Blu-ray Disc products are the BD550 and BD570 players and LHB535 and LHB335 home theater systems, all featuring NetCast Entertainment Access.

The BD570 is a Wi-Fi-enabled Blu-ray Disc player that combines a sleek design and surround sound technologies. This model has the same features as the BD590 excluding the built-in hard drive.

The BD550 Blu-ray Disc player delivers NetCast Entertainment Access. Additional features include:

- Full HD 1080p Blu-ray Disc playback
- 1080p upscaling of standard DVDs
- Dolby TrueHD and dts-HD Advanced Digital Out technologies
- USB 2.0 Media Host to display photos, play videos and listen to MP3 files.

LG's LHB535 is a Network Blu-ray Disc Home Theater System featuring an integrated Wi-Fi connection that allows consumers to stream more content easier than ever before. It has the same features as the LHB975 with the exception of the 3-channel wireless speaker technology and tall and slim front speaker designs.

Rounding out LG's 2010 offering of Blu-ray Home Theater Systems is the LHB335, a Network Blu-ray Disc Home Theater System featuring LG's NetCast Entertainment Access. Additional features include:

- Full HD 1080p Blu-ray Disc playback
- 1080p upscaling of standard DVDs
- One HDMI input for high resolution audio and video devices
- Pure HD audio performance including Dolby TrueHD and dts-HD Master Audio Essential
- USB Media Host to display photos, play videos and listen to MP3 files.
