No blocked DVD or Blu-rays here. Play DVD’s or Blu Ray from any country with any region code (A,B,C or 0 to 6) as well as different disk types (-/+R/RW) . Includes Cinavia® copy protected content either on a DVD/Blue Ray disk format, from your usb flash drive or stored on your local network hard drive.
With DLNA Connectivity you can cnnect to and play files from other DLNA devices on your home network. So you may have a movie or pictures on your home PC, which you can easily access with DLNA from the Laser Blu Ray drive.
A LAN (cat 5) connection is used to access content such as movies, photos or music locted on your home WiFi network via DLNA. Alternately you can also access additional online content for Blu Ray movies equipped with BDLive and MovieIQ. BD-Live 2.0 is a standard for Blu-ray players that utilizes your internet connection and allows you to view additional content such as alternate movie endings, movie take outs or other movie trailers. (note; you should check that the blu ray movie you have has a BD Live feature)
The inbuilt Media Player allows you to play movies, music and photos easily from your USB, disk, hard drive or local network. Covering a wide range of file formats, it allows you to watch movies on your big TV, instead of your laptop or PC. What's even better is that with Cinevia copy protection disabled, you can play those torrent movies without interuption. (yes, of course - we condone privacy of copyright material)
Watch DVD movies (which are 480 resolution) on a big screen TV (in 1080 resolution). The processor on board the Laser Blu Ray upscales the base image by intelligently filling in missing pixels to produce a clearer image ready for large screens, giving you a higher-resolution image. So get out all your old DVD's and start watching them again in 1080 HD resolution.
Have you got a surround sound system? Whether it's a "Home Theatre in a Box 5.1" or a dedicated AV reciever with up to 11.1 speakers, the LASER Blu Ray can decode and play Dolby Digital True HD and DTS HD Master Audio soundtracks. Crystal clear sound with a large dynamic range, you will hear clear channel separation and booming bass whilst still being able to hear the centre voices.
With auto scaling playback, all resolutions up to 1080p FULL HD are covered. 24fps encoded blu Ray movies can also be played back to give you the authentic cinema experience. (only works with 24fps compatible TV's and projectors)
- Digital Audio (Coaxial) - this is a single RCA (the black plug) which connects to AV recievers or surround processors which have a digital to analogue (D/A) converter. Pure digital output only.
- L/R Audio (RCA) - these are the conventional white (left) and red (right) analogue audio outputs for TV's or basic amplifiers, soundbars, etc.
- HDMI - use this for all recent TV's, amplifiers, HDMI sound bars, processors and so on.
- Cat 5 LAN - this connects with a cat 5 data cable (like you computer) to a network hub, router, switch, modem so you can access online content from your Blu Ray player.
