LG To Launch Second-Generation Dual-Format Player
With the high-definition disc format war still going full-bore, LG has introduced its next-generation dual-format player. Playing both Blu-ray and HD DVD discs, the Super Blu Player, scheduled to be unveiled at CEDIA in Denver on Thursday, under the model number BH200.
The player, scheduled for an October release at an MSRP of $999, succeeds the BH-100, which was launched earlier this year as the first player of its kind. More details will be announced Thursday, but LG says the new player will give access to all interactive features on Blu-ray and HD DVD movies, as well as outputting of 1080p video resolution, and various audio formats.
