Folks living in South Korea – take note, you have an umpteenth Blu-ray player coming your way, so you might be jaded by such news already. Still, at least this dedicated Blu-ray player is not going to get hacked twice in a month, but that is another can of worms altogether. I digress, and here are further details concerning the Samsung BD-D7000 Blu-ray player.
This is a compact device as you can see on the right, but one main advantage it has over the other older models would be support for 3D playback – just make sure you have a HDTV that will be compatible with the Blu-ray player in order for the latter to work its magic. It is rather impressive to see so many electronics crammed down a chassis that is roughly half the size of regular Blu-ray players, tipping the scales at a highly portable 2.4lbs.
Originally introduced at CES 2011 earlier this year, where it will also be able to receive apps and other “smart features” courtesy of its integrated Wi-Fi connection – subject to the working range, of course. With Samsung’s Hyper Real Engine inside, it will let you process the video to minimize noise without necessarily hurting the sharpness. Supporting Dolby 7.1 surround sound capability, it can also upconvert 2D content to 3D – an evolution of SD to HD. You can pick up the Samsung BD-D7000 for around $360 in Korea.
