Concerned that you won't have anything to watch on your 4K TV? Red, the company behind some of the most popular 4K cameras, has a solution – the RedRay player. Despite the name, the RedRay player isn't an upgrade to current disc-based options, but a device that's purely focused on streaming 4K content into your home.

It's been a while since we've heard from Oppo but they've finally announced a followup for the legendary BDP-93 and BDP-95. The pair of players bring a lot to the table that weren't offered in the previous models, including a few features that you're not going to find on other players. With Oppo, you can almost assume that great video is included, and the Marvell Qdeo processing they've packed into the new BDP-103 and BDP-104 with shows that assumption to be correct. The player upscales to 1080p of course, but also to 4K for your future TV or projector. It also converts 2D to 3D.
Sony announced both a Google TV enabled set-top box and Google TV enabled Blu-ray player today, coming in at prices of $199 and $299 respectively. Both are packed with the goodies you'd expect to see from a Google TV device, including access to the Google Play Store, Wi-Fi for your internet connection and a remote that packs a multi-touch pad and 3-Axis motion control. The Blu-ray player won't be out until the fall, but the NSZ-GS7 is coming July 22nd and is currently up for preorder on Amazon.
The folks over at McIntosh have a trio of new products on the way, all designed to play nicely together or to integrate into your current system. It kicks off with the MX121 AV Control Center, which includes 3D support, upconversion to 1080p, and a variety of audio features including Apple AirPlay. You can pick it up at $6,000.
