Cambridge Audio to Introduce First Blu-ray Player in 2009
Cambridge Audio will release its first Blu-Ray/DVD/CD player in early 2009. Designed to be the perfect partner to the Azur range of AV Receivers the 640BD features full HDMI 1.3 output, including bitstream output of all the latest HD Dolby and DTS surround-sound systems plus internal decoding of Dolby Digital EX, DTS ES, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby True HD and DTS HR surround-sound. A full set of analog video outputs is supported, HDMI 1.3 video/audio, Ethernet, SPDIF, Toslink and separate dedicated 7.1 and stereo analogue outputs.
Cambridge Audio prides itself on developing products that offer true value for money to discerning buyers and has embraced Blu-Ray technology with enthusiasm to wring out the best possible performance from this exciting new format.
Supporting Dolby True HD means the 640BD provides audio that matches the original studio masters. While natively supporting up to 1080p from Blu-Ray discs the 640BD is also able to upscale DVD discs to 1080p video resolution taking the viewer to the heart of movie action. Meanwhile, 24 frames per second (fps) progressive scan True Cinema allows films to be watched as the director intended at their original frame rate without conversion for the most natural jog free panning and motion possible.
All this means the 640BD lives up to Cambridge Audio's philosophy of providing a passion for performance to get the best out of any movie collection.
Please note, due to Cambridge Audio's policy of continuous improvement, specifications and appearance may change without notice.
