New entertainment products from ASUS that are currently shown at CeBIT 2011 include Blu-ray drives with wide media format compatibility, 3D playback, smartphone remote control functionality and USB 3.0-based high speed write performance.
The new ASUS O!Play BDS-700 Blu-ray player uses Qdeo video post-processing to deliver clear images in native high definition and upscaling of 480p DVD content. It supports Blu-ray 3D playback on compatible screens and delivers 7.1-channel surround sound mastered in Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD. An independent audio-only HDMI port on the BDS-700 guarantees improved high definition audio performance through a dedicated channel.
Support for a wide range of video, audio, image and subtitle formats ensures the BDS-700 offers the highest degree of media compatibility available. Content can play directly from external storage devices via the included USB port, while Ethernet comes standard. High speed 802.11n Wi-Fi with DLNA support enables easy and cable-free media streaming across a network and from cloud-based content providers such as Netflix, YouTube, Pandora, Flickr and Picasa. Internet radio streaming is also available.
Support for smartphone remote control of the BDS-700 also makes access to content easier. Full compatibility with iPhone, Android, Windows Phone 7, Blackberry and Symbian devices allows users to control playback and enter text using the on-screen keyboard.
